[quote=Half Baked]How about an Etiquette School?

A charm and finishing school, a program that will show them how to present themselves with grace and charm.



Don't know about the finishing school idea. I kinda think they're already finished. Charm school might be a good plan. Buck may already have a leg up there. A few years ago he won first place in a womanless beauty pageant. Quite a sight. Long gown, blonde wig...and cigar. Yep, the charm school is a good idea. Sign 'em up! If we can get any of them to look and act like Tom Selleck, I'm in.

(Bucky's head pops up from the middle of the hot-tub) Watch him ladies! He's got a torpedo and he's not a fraid to use it! (girls squeel with laughter as little plastic torpedoes shower them from Bucky's two foor plastic subamarine).

Hey Bucky! They said they're gonna send us to Charm school, you know, like in the Brawny Paper Towel Comercial. I'm tellin ya right now, no charm school is gonna refine this Northern country boy. And I know what guys from Jersey are made from, and it aint refined.

Let's give 'em something to complain about. (All three men submerge and pull the ladies underwater by their ankles. The women can't tell shere they will strike as they are hidden by the bubbles of the hot tub. Guys pop up while the women try to regain their feet.)

Hey guys, there's ten of them, and only three of us. Think we can hold 'em off?"

To be continued...

Oh ladies. I already know how to present myself with charm and grace. I've even had ballroom dance classes. I can tango, cha cha, foxtrot, waltz, and a host of other ballroom dances. I can converse about nearly any subject in an intelligent and interesting manner. I can speak perfect English, with nary a contraction, and certainly no double negatives. And many are the young ladies I have charmed before selecting my wife. But as for the sedate charm & grace life, that's just a bit boring most of the time. It has its place, and that place is somewhere else.

So you see, the school would be lost on me, as I choose not to behave in a completely civil manner.

Bucky, Ronjohn, I have the liverwurst, brats and such locate on the patio table. Shall we dine?

When we have liverwurst and brats we do not "dine," we EAT! Let's have us a proper feed and show these wenches what it means to be sated!

Holy crap! I leave for the day and come back to find the entire patio trashed! You boys get back here right now and clean up this mess! If you don't behave better than this we will have to put the razor wire back up! *Grumbling as she starts sweeping up all the napkins and brat detritus*

I'll go get the garbage bags, Alix! They have the manners of wild bears. This place is just nasty.

*picking up tons of beer bottles, wrappers, plates, glasses, silverware.....*

Geez, Alix, they trashed the place. They've strewn charm and gentility all over the place. (Katie picking up a bit of slimy sliced onion.) Pew! And, look, they've even made all our cute little rubber duckies float upside down. Poor babies! Look what those barbarians did to you. Alix, do you think razor wire would be enough?

My, oh, my, Half Baked, look at the pile of yuck you've scooped up? Why are you cleaning that mess up? Let's get on the horn and get the goons over here who made this mess? Where's the phone?

Ahem.

Katie and I have consulted. Alix and Jan, please stop cleaning. We have help for that. We are going to "decorate" the lake site.

Doilies are going down on all the tree stumps they park their rageddy behinds on.

"Lilac Mist" air freshener is going in their outhouse, along with pink polka dot ruffled curtains.

I've let a dozen clipped poodles have their run of the place, with strategically placed bits of meat to ensure that they never leave.

Wait until they try to drink the beer in that keg. It's got a secret ingredient even ronjohn never tried.

I haven't been here long, but this is such a nice way of meeting you ladies. The water is just the right temperature, and I love these birds of paradise you have floating on the surface. So tropical! Pepe, how kind of you to offer! Is that my mai tai? What a way to spend a Sunday!
