Murdo Girl… The Brick House..Give me a P??

It’s Monday morning at the Brick House. Next Pres Murdo Girl is already hard at work in the Oblong Office and it’s only 10:00 a.m. She’s trying to do the budget because it’s due. She has to have next quarter’s budget to the Courthouse yesterday. Murdo Girl, using her usual rationalization, figures since she lost an hour Sunday, it won’t be a big deal if she’s 24 hours late. So far she’s got nothing. Isn’t this Jerry the Bean Counter’s job?

In comes Lav.


Lav: Hey NP can I have your audience for a minute?

MG: Been hanging out with the Queen again have we?

Lav: I just want to let you know I don’t want to be the Designated Survivor/Next Vice Pres anymore. It’s boring me, and I hate being bored. It makes me nervous, and when I’m nervous I bite my nails, and when I bite my nails, I..

MG: (Interrupting) I get it already Lav. My answer might just surprise you. I’m kind of sick of being Next Pres too. It’s too political. It was fun when we were all busy with the campaign and everything, boy..weren’t those some good times Lav?

Lav: Yeah MG. We had some great times didn’t we? All those fun dirty tricks and stuff. Now that we won, there’s nobody to dirty trick anymore. What are we going to do NPMG?

MG: Don’t go through all that Next Pres Murdo Girl anymore. It’s too long. Let’s call a meeting in the Gym. Get TC in here, no wait! Let’s not cry it out to the whole town yet. Let’s just have a top shelf cabinet meeting, say in the employee lounge at 1:00 o’clock today.

Lav: It’s a good idea to have it in the employee lounge instead of the gym cause everybody will already be there. Should we invite the Queen? I hear she’s been getting bored too. She’s been causing some trouble in the campground.

MG: What kind of trouble Lav? Is it all the Corgis?

Lav: I’ll let her tell you about it.


The time is 1:00 p.m. and everyone has arrived. Well, they were already there, but they didn’t leave except to go to the restroom. Next Pres Murdo Girl calls the meeting to order. TC, can you help me out here?



MG: Thank you…Now, who all wants to abdicate the administration and do something else?

Sherri the Photographic Drawer: Count me in. I’m tired of drawing all of you. It’s boring, cause you’re all boring. I don’t ever have anything fun to draw anymore..and when I don’t have fun stuff to draw, I draw stuff on people’s heads.


MG: We get the picture Sherri. Anybody else?

Pico: Well this is great news for me. I mean, I’m so sick of bean themed parties. It’s like having a whole bunch of Tupperware parties, or Amway, or Mary Kay..although, I do like her make-up. The point is, nobody ever has the money to buy or in our case give. We wind up in the bean hole every time, and it’s starting to mess with my self-confidence. Will I have to change my name? I kinda like Pico. Person in Charge Of has a nice ring to it.


MG: Got it Pico..Next

Jerry the Bean Counter: Well I don’t know. I’m kind of skeptical of new things, although I’ve kind of been toying with the idea of going back to school to be an accountant.


MG: Carol are you tuned in to this meeting? You seem kind of distracted.

Carol: I’m practicing in my know, for the birthday party later.


MG: Oh man!! I forgot about the party. I’ve forgotten why we said we would honor this person with a Brick House birthday party?

AI: Treason was trying to gin up some good publicity for our admin. Remember, she put it in the paper before she informed us? She was totally out of line, but then I’m pretty aggressive so…Will I still be able to fly my airplane? And can I get Sherri and her daughter off of my head?


Treason: I don’t care what we do, but unlike Pico, who likes her name, Treason is a Debbie Downer. Teresa and Liaison put together makes it easier I know, but it makes it really hard to sell myself to the news outlets as being a viable know what I mean?


MG: Jeez..I had no idea my top shelf cabinet was feeling like this. DM, you haven’t said anything. What do you think?

DM: What? (DM takes the earbuds out of his ear.) I agree!!


MG: You agree to what DM?

DM: Um, I agree with the general consensus..but I would like to announce something. I still have some squares left.

MG: I forgot..It’s March Madness time. Don’t take any beans DM, cause they’re about to become worthless.

Is March Madness Basketball or Football?

About that time, the Queen enters, followed by her bodyguards, yes Bart, Smart, and Braveheart.

Queen: We’re here for the birthday party. Where’s the cake and the birthday girl?

Looks Good..I’ll just take a bite..out of the middle

Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to You. Happy Birthday dear Pat Penticoff Bechard. Happy Birthday to you…HAAPY BIRTHDAAY TO YOU!!

And many moooore!!

The meeting is adjourned. The discussion will continue after the party.

We Love you Pat..Thanks for being a BB..(Blog Blessing)

We wanted to burn a P, but we only had M’s..Happy Birthday from the Harold Thune Auditorium and the Jerald Applefloor. We’re at the Motel signing your birthday Card. How long do we have to stand like this? BTW..we were supposed to form a P for Pat. Where’s Mick?

    I am going to take a break. This whole cabinet scene is tough. Too much responsibility. Going to hang out at the campground and eat cake. Fake cake.

      Fake cake sounds better than fake beans. We’re going to try out a few other ideas in the Brick House b4 we resign as POMUS and VOMUS.

    I’m with DM! You can call me whatever you wish and I will reply, MG! I am happy to serve this illustrious town and team, just don’t fire me, please! I’m retired and have nothing else to do!

    I was going to wait until they soaked it with fuel, then I was going to borrow it. Probably having Sherri photo draw it would be better.

    That’s okay DM..We would have had to buy all the stuff and wrap it and pour fuel on it, (beans don’t burn.) It would be cheaper for her to change her name to Mat.

    OMG MG! I just let the whole team down. I was so busy celebrating about the extra 53 beans our defense budget was getting I lost focus. I should have gotten together withAI and Pico and “borrowed” Presho’s P before they used it. Or we could have “borrowed” Pierre’s. Or, if we had to, we could have “borrowed” Puckwana’s. I’m sure Mr Pickner’s relatives wouldn’t have minded! I’ll be ready for next year though. Let’s see, we will need an L, a J, a T and a C…
