Post 419: Tut, Tut.

WTFS Anchor Person: Breaking News –- Sparkyville Archeologists have entered the abandoned tract home, rumored to be the burial place of Tut McSparky, hundredaire and creator of the Can of Beans on a Stick. This tomb has been sealed for weeks now, and reporter NinjaChow is one of the first people to enter it. NC, What are you seeing?

NC: You wouldn’t believe it, there are newspapers everywhere, dating as far back as May, 2017. We’ve been warned not to touch anything.

AP: Impressive. What are the archeologists doing now?

NC: One of them picked up a slice of petrified pizza and the other knocked it out of his hand. She seems unhappy that he didn’t care how old the item was.

AP: Where did he find the pizza?

NC: Hold on, I’ll send a photo.

AP: Of course. It was a state law or something.

NC: Hold up, the bedroom door is opening! Tut McSparky has returned to life!

Tut: Get out of my house. Can’t a person get some sleep around here?

NC: Back to you, Anchor Person. Looks like He’s in a bad mood.

AP: Just another drunk on a bender. Thanks for trying. This is WTFS News, signing off.

  1. So, 5′ 20″ long?
    Is that like sating it’s 08:81 CDT instead of 0921?
    5′ 20″ as notation wiuld indicate 6′-8″, or 80″ overall.
    So, probably this is meant to be 5′ x 20″, which is bad notation, for mixing units–60″ x 20″ is clearer, and simpler than 5′-0″ x 1′-8″.
    Whicg is why we in the architecting trade always use a dash to show units in combination.

    We also try to not entomb our decedants in dark oak in the parlour (unless the client pays extra).

  2. As ugly as they were these tables and especially the matching octagonal end tables sure were handy for storing a lot of junk. Considering the size of the apartments being build these days (and the hipster trend of ironic nostalgia) I wouldn’t be surprised to see these things pop up more often.
