Besides, if someone dared give me a parking ticket, I'd have them thrown in the Nopar Dungeon.

"Okay. What if you had two super powers?" Mike asked.
"Dude, what's your problem? Alright, alright, let's see. I already can fly, right? So I guess I'd need to be able to land." Johnny said.
"That's not a super power. Anybody can land."
"Oh right, right. Super power. I thought you just said power. So, let's see. I can fly. And I can land. I can't swim, but that's my fault. I don't know. You have any ideas?"
"Dude, come on! You know, laser vision, super strength, lasso of truth, spidersense, the ability to talk to fish: super powers!"
Then it hit him. "Invisibility!" Johnny exclaimed! And so did I, the narrator.

On Tuesday, Mike spoke of his love for piñatas. We thought we would spread the love:
What would you fill your piñata with?
The easy answer is candy. But as for us, we think we would fill it with...mini piñatas. How great would it be to break open a piñata to find dozens of little piñata offspring raining down on you. You can keep it as a souvenir of good times had, or fill it with little doggie treats for a party for your doggie! Ah, endless possibilities! Now, it's your turn.

No my problem is with the word. You see,"-logy" means the study of. Biology is the study of bio, or life. Chronology is the study of chrono, or time. Zoology is the study of things you might find in a zoo.
Clearly, technology is the study of techno, strange music heard in European discos. And I for one am not a fan.

As the two began to eat their Super Hero pizza, Mike thought of a good game.
"I thought of a good game," Mike said redundantly. "If you were a super hero and could have any super power, what would it be?"
"Dude, it's like you don't even know what a game is," Johnny said. "In order to be a game, there has to be a winner."
"Oh, yeah? What about the game of life?"
"The Millionaire Tycoon wins."
"True enough," Mike said. "Okay, how about this? I have a philosophical question: If you were a super hero and could have any super power, what would it be?"
"That's better." Johnny thought about it for a while, and said, "I don't know. Why?" Clearly, he hadn't thought about it long enough.
"Come on, dude. Just answer the question." Mike said.
He thought about it for a while longer and said, "Well, I guess it would be cool to be able to fly. I mean, that way, I could like get out in a hurry if I ever needed to."
"Yeah, that would be cool," Mike said. "But lots of super heroes can fly. Wouldn't you want something original?"
"Dr. Pepper is the taste of originality, but I'd take a Coke any day. And I want to fly."

Earlier in the week, Johnny talked about changing alphabetical order. We thought that in the process we might as well do some spring cleaning, too:
Which letter should be eliminated from the alphabet?
We think it should be "Q". Hey, Q what are you, a little scaredy cat? Can't go out and play without your buddy U? Well, here's some news for you, U is going out without you! He's having a grand old time at the mUseUm, and the football stadiUm. But where are you, Q? Stuck in IraQ.
Think U can do better? Yeah, we think so, too. Post it.

Anyway, I suggest that we arrange the whole alphabet to match computer keyboards. Why not? We all type. It seems as good an order as any. So we should start teaching our kids the Q-W-E's instead of the A-B-C's, and see how that takes us. I bet it'll solve a lot of problems.

It was a dark and stormy night. The darkness of the night was not totally unexpected, but the storm was. Mike and Johnny were sitting around, looking out the window at the driving rain. And the driving car. The driving car?
"Pizza's here!" they both exclaimed, and ran to the door. Johnny grabbed the pizza and headed to the kitchen, while Mike stayed behind to pay the delivery guy. As usual.
As Johnny was opening the box to take his first piece, he noticed something unusual. "Ew, what's this?" he asked.
"It's Pizza Bandits' new pizza, The Super Hero." Mike replied. "Limited time only!"
"Super Hero? Who wants a 16-inch hoagie as a topping?"
"Oh, hero like sandwich. I thought it was called that because it's the super hero of pizzas. You know, like it's got the sauce of justice and EXTRA CHEESE! And it hurls its pepperoni nunchuks to tie up the evil sausages and bring them back in for the authorities."
"First, pepperonis look nothing like nunchuks. Second, nunchuks don't fly back to you - that's a boomerang. And third, Super Pizza would never try to harm the sausages, for they are a peaceful people. It's the evil Anchovy Army he has to watch out for."
We're gonna be telling a story over a loooong period of time using teeny tiny chapters that will always leave you asking for more. (That doesn't sound like a good thing.)
Anyway, the first story will be called "Super Heroes," and it will be all about the members of the Pake Shlake Band receiving super powers and the shenanigans that ensue. Stay tuned.

Earlier this week, Johnny was asking plenty of questions about President's Day, and that led us to one more:
What is your favorite President's Day carol?
Johnny mentioned some good ones, but our favorite is "Do You Hear What I Hear? Yes, we have wiretapped your phone." Tell us yours.

Don't you find it interesting that every sentence so far has been a question? Me neither. Me neither??

For this week's game, we were thinking about super heroes, and we came up with this question:
If you were a super hero, what would your name be?
For us, we would choose General Crushificator and Titanium-Man with our Hammer of Justice and Bell of Freedom. You see, you need a strong name to be a super hero. Especially when your super tools are named after lyrics from a Peter, Paul, and Mary song.
What about you?

I have a feeling they did because he was flying side by side with another bird. The other bird didn't fly into the window. Bet that's gonna cause some strife in that relationship. "Dude, why didn't you tell me there was a force field there?" "Come on, I didn't know until you ran into it!"
Of course, birds would not understand the concept of glass windows, so they would have to assume it was a force field they ran into. All birds know about force fields.
