This is how it works

Posted by PaulKirby on Tuesday, February 10, 2009

American banjos are good. Chinese banjos are bad, and RK banjos are really bad, because the Grich uses his nefarious superpowers to manipulate the market and gives his Chinese death banjos an evil and unfair advantage over the Sons of Earl. The Grich's lair is in the evil California source of all wickedness, immorality, and loud colored clothing and painted Roy Rogers guitars. The ironic exception is that the California is also the home of Deering, the other 'real' banjo, made by a peace-loving band of post-apocalyptic luthiers. In league with the Deerings and fighting for the souls of banjo owners is Banjodom's own rocket scientist, the Nechville, whose uranium-core tonering super banjos are able to actually fire streams of superheated notes through the molecular stucture of the Grich's Chinese Death Banjos and render them silent for a time. Then the Nechville weapon is able to totally transform itself into a completely different instrument, totally confusing the imposing protection shield of the Grich and his Chinese Death Banjos. And then there's Mike Gregory, the Mad Max of the whole thing, leather clad, packing a sawed-off double barrel twelve-gauge on his hip, who scours the barren Wisconsin wasteland not for the last traces of fossil fuel, but for banjo parts, or anything that could be used as a banjo part.

Very entertaining (although I am trying to erase the mental image of a leather-clad Mike Gregory). Looking a bit like Earl Hickey in your new avatar.

LOL! As owner of an RK, hugger of a Gregory, and drooler/ Nechvillian wannabe, I have no comment.. but you're so right in so many ways. :-)

Huh? I'm waiting for California to go bankrupt so that everybody will go away and then it can return to its pristine beauty.

I can't wait for the Nechie! You should get one too. :-)

Now, if you could just release this story as a graphic novel before long it will be picked up as a mjaor motion picture and the banjo world will be exploited by Hollywood and you will become wealthy.  Remember you heard it here first!
