Jeff "Ethec" Woleslagle wrapping up the workweek here at TTH studios. You'll be ecstatic to learn that your friend and mine, John "Boomjack" Hoskin, returns on Monday to rescue you from my tripe. Many of you have written expressing concern for Boom; I assure you that he's doing well. At last report he'd left the circus for a elder's role in a Frisbyeterian Tent Revival. Boom was tragically lured to Brother Whammo's cause by the belief that after death that the frisbee of the soul goes up on the roof, and no one but the good Brother and his "holy handi-ladder" can get it down.
Sadly, the latest tent crusade outside Wasiphinokee, Wisconsin quickly grew into a standoff between the Fribyterians and federal agents when the FB's refused to hand over their soda- and pop-rock-laced frisbees. TTH will bring you continuing coverage from the rural Wisconsin standoff as soon as we can get a reported to write a story on it, but we're pretty sure Boomjack will see the light and return home in time for the Monday "Loading..." segment.
