   I MEANT to be vague.   Though in my mind Ebonics
Lad and the car were turned into

   And why do you ASSUME that using Peelix and Ebonics
Lad were really my idea.  I *WROTE* it but the plot
was by Jesse N. Willey *AND* Dane Martin.  I pitched
the idea to Dane, he said: "Will Peelix be in it?" I
said "No."  Then he said: "Will Peelix be in it?" I
said "No." Then he said: "Will Peelix be in it?"  To
which said: "Why, yes, he is."   As for Ebonics Lad,
Tom had told me privately (and on the list) that he
wished he'd never created the character and could
somebody please kill him.   I thought since this
storyline was chock full of Tom Russell characters as
it was... it'd be the perfect place.

  Give me thirty minutes...  I do the final edits and
post it.  Dane (the co-creator, co-plotting lunatic of
Onion Lad) and Martin (the guy who does my proofing)
have already given me the go ahead.  Of course, Martin
only said that issue #5 was funny... he made no such
assertion about #4 so maybe I should post that
