Desperate Fan Lives, Part 4

Karla, the woman, and a couple of others (implied however you see) are in the living room, shown at a distance as the phone rings elsewhere.

TOM picks it up. He is wearing a gas mask.

TOM: Hello?

TANNER: Tom? Is that you? I can hardly hear you.

TOM: I’m wearing a gas mask.


TOM: Karla! She brought eight women over to watch Desperate Housewives tonight! The estrogen in the air is dangerously man-eroding!

TANNER: You’re kidding.

TOM: Tanner, with Nathan Fillion in the cast, it’s like “Dirty Dancing” times a dozen in here. My jewels would dissolve into a pink mist if I took off my protective lead shield.

TANNER: You have a lead crotch-shield. In the house.

TOM: My porno mags spontaneously transformed into issues of “Cosmopolitan” during the Patrick Swayze marathon! You don’t know what it was like!

Ferrett Says

This week, we have two delightful sponsors, both of whom are long-time friends of HotS.

First off is a project of Eric Burns, a.k.a. Mister Websnark, whose critiques and links have helped us on numerous occasions. He now has another journal, Banter Latte, wherein he writes about many cool things - including "Interviewing Leather," which is the story of a reporter who gets entangled with a superhero villainess during a Rolling Stone-style interview, and the always-fabulous "Mythology of the Modern World," which explains today's common mysteries (Why does alcohol produce hangovers? Who are the people who don't get off the train at the end of the line?) in bizarre terms. It has my seal of approval.

Second - and this is a Very Cool Idea - an anonymous fan of Yet Another Fantasy Gaming Comic paid for a week's worth of advertising, because she wanted as many people to read them as possible. YAFGC is one of the best webcomics out there (there's a reason it's on our Recommended Reading list) and I can only concur. So go check 'em out!
