Unshelved comic strip for 10/16/2008

F Chords

I've really been enjoying Kris Straub's new comic strip F Chords lately. It may just that, now that I'm learning to play ukulele, I now know what an "F Chord" is. But I think it has more to do with getting to know these two lovable loser musicians. I think you'll enjoy getting to know them too.

Rapped onto the stage at TPL

Last week, at the Timberland Library System's Staff Day, for the first time ever, Bill and I were introduced via a rap. The singers were transformed to rappers via a gold blow dryer (the Rap Master 5000) before launching into the following song.

Thanks to the Nancy, Greg, Toni, George, Linda, and everyone else at Timberland-- we had a great time again!

By Greg "Crazy Maintenance Guy" Carter
Performed by Toni and Nancy

The guys from Unshelved
In the house now

Gene with the words
Bill with the toons
The laughs at M.P.L.
Are way overdue

Dewey, Tamara, and
Cranky Colleen
Manager Mel, trying to
Manage the scene

And who's that furry page
Behind the mask
Why it's Buddy Beaver
With the checkered past

Behind the Desk
They’re not safe from
The lost, deranged
And whiney patron

They can’t run
Or give 'em the boot
Can’t run from Merv
Or Ned’s birthday suit

So it's meet the makers
Of these Unshelved adventures
Hang on to your seats
Hang on to your ….dentures
