The Full Story
Our source for information about our city’s sudden celebrities, Mr. Ab Ennis and Mr. Orville Slack IV, is Ms. Talia la Musa, sole proprietor of the popular Watering Hole of this fair city. She informs us that Mr. Ennis was born in 1886, died and was cremated in 1958, and has recently been fitted with a robotic device. Mr. Slack was born in 1934, died and was recently cremated, and has undergone that same operation. She adds that the robotizer was Myles na Gopaleen, Jr., illegitimate son of the semi-famous Irish novelist Myles na Gopaleen, Sr.
Ms. la Musa goes on to say that she, Mr. Ennis, Mr. Slack, Arthur Unknown, and Mr. na Gopaleen, Jr. are the sole members of the Kachina Round Table. This clique is “dedicated to the twin tasks of (1) discussing astrology, phrenology, politics, theology, and other bunk (2) and entertaining the late-night crowd at The Watering Hole.”
