The Weenerman is thinking, “What is required is a new Plan!”
Ernie frowns, “Bummer, good Plans are hard to come by,” as he pours some murky green pop over what is left of the ice creme in his Ugly Mug.
All I can say is, “What a Vivid shade of green.”
“The murky green pop must be reacting with the garbanzo beans,” the Weenerman postulates.
“It does,” Ernie puts in, “I’ve tried it before.”
“On-going research,” the WeenerMan nods, “My Commendations.”
“Thanks, as long as they don’t cost me anything,” Ernie replies.
There is a strange fizzing sound and then this ugly green slime comes bubbling over the top of the Mug and spills down the side.
‘Neat,’ Ernie says, ‘I never had green pop do that before.”
“The Experiment must be replicated,” the Weenerman announces as both of us pour murky green pop over what remains of the garbanzo bean vanilla to see what happens.
Sure enough, there is a gurgling sound, and then a grungey green foam rises to the top of the Mug, puases a moment as if looking to see if the coast is clear, and then foams over and starts to ooze down the side of the Ugly Mug.
“Amazing,” the Weenerman says, “Looks like one of those volcano projects the smart kids take to Science Fair.”
“Hey look,” Ernie popints out, “That green pop is eating the ink right off the side of the Mug!”
“That is Permanent Ink,” I say uneasily.
“Indestructable,” Ernie answers.
“And we consumed it,” I’m still trying to think this through.
“There is no time to dawdle,” the Weenerman announces, “the time to act is Now! I have a plan.”
“Ernie, Make up some more signs and get them around town, and Scout, go fire up the Ernie-mobile,” Weenerman announces.
“And you’ll be doing?” I ask.
“The Weenerman starts accross the street to the Burdock, “Getting sustenance of course, all this enteprenourialship works up my appetite!”
