In honour of Father's day, i present:

Stone Soup Game Thread Intro

In my pop's declining years, the last grocery run he was willing to be part of was for sake of the joke of asking where they kept the stone soup. Which was in mind because we'd recently watched the episode off Jim Henson's the Storyteller that features it: A Story Short.

This episode stems from coming to the best bit of a story and suddenly not remembering what comes next. Fortunately i don't have that problem... yet.

Happy Father's day all!

Stone Soup Line up:

A large pot.
Water.
A nice stone.

Prep:
adlib to involve the audience in creating and enjoying it all.

Serve generously.

An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German on vacation all happen to be watching a busker do some juggling at the city market. The juggler sees that these four gentlemen have an obstructed view, so he stands up on a nearby pedestal and calls out, “can you all see me now?”

They reply:

“Yes.”

“Oui.”

“Sí.”

“Ja.”

 

And that, folks, is my contributed ingredient to today's Father's Day Stone Soup: a dad joke.

Everyone hates me because I got cured of paranoia and they didn't.

Complete the sweep.

It’s what I want for Father’s Day.

Oh, and a nice steak, medium rare, with baked potato and grilled asparagus. With a glass or four of good Chianti.

A joke worthy (for lack of the right word) of Chief.

Keep your drink out of reach of infants or you'd have to take Chianti from a baby.

I want to wait a few more games before I judge how Joe is really feeling, but that Joe/Eddie at the top of the order might not be a bad thing.

Escobar doubles Mauer in.

Yes is now the answer to the leading question.

If not there should be, and for some reason I see a yellow lab or golden retriever involved. - would be very 1980's Disney.

Someone check on Tom Kelly after that incredible brain fart by Garver.
