News, but not the serious kind
Is the cavalry back with those doughnuts?
EMILY! How is our checking account overdrawn? What the hell did you buy?
Shut your cake hole, Herb! That stuff is for household expenses, every bit of it. Maybe you need to get a raise down at the plant!
Let me just see that budget, Emily. Food, gasoline, rent, cavalry, medical… Wait just a minute. Cavalry, $2.4 million for February? But what do they DO?
Well, Mr. Potato Head, when Clancy across the street borrows our lawn mower and won’t return it, we send the Household Cavalry thundering over to his place to bring it back.
When you need jelly doughnuts at 3 a.m., who finds an all-night diner? The Household Cavalry!
When it’s your birthday, who do you think puts on that big parade in the driveway, the Kiwanis Club? No. The Household Cavalry!
Look, there’s horses, uniforms, sabers, daffodils…
Okay, okay, if the neighbors have ‘em then I guess we need ‘em too. But $2.4 million per month?
February was short, Big Spender. Brace yourself for $3 million in March. And it’s YOUR turn to clean the stables!
