Forever Mastadon ~ Episode 213
…”You can certainly count on me!” ready, willing & evil…
“I like you Winters, a real go-getter you are,” the director of concessions for Comiskey Park has identified our villain as a key employee (or the only one to volunteer to do something that isn’t on commission). “That event on the 28th, the one with all those teetotalers, well they need 350 gallons of wine of all things. We will be handing out 45,000 1oz. servings of Manischewitz and I would like you to be in charge of that.”
“You can certainly count on me!” ready, willing & evil.
“Great, I thought I could count on you – you will need to fill, seal and be able to distribute every one of those portions in 15 minutes – that will take a miracle!”
“How do we collect the money?” Winters/Penty is playing dumb. Hell, if churches charged cash money for Communion wine, there would be significantly fewer churchgoers, the ultimate result/goal in his wicked world.
“You’re a funny dog, Winters! When exactly was the last time you were in a church,” implying that he didn’t have a clue about lightning striking when he enters a place of worship.
“I don’t believe in going to church. I have better things to do with my Sundays.”
“Wow, at least I’m a two-timer.”
“You cheat on your wife? Great – I mean that’s a shame – You don’t look like the type.”
“No stupid, I go to church at Christmas and Easter, hence two-timer, get it?”
“I’ll do the job, but never call me stupid again,” he states. ‘I can back up my threats you ignorant human,’ goes unstated.
The poor soak has no idea what this greasy guy is up to.
