is a quick poke

of the closet

ALL: # It's not a joke

# Boom chicka-boom

# Lord, my mum's weight

# If you give her wind
beneath her wings

# And not just in her anal cavity
HISSING NOISE

# Boom chicka-boom
# Come out

# Come feel the heat

# Of the parachute beat

# Ruffle, ruffle,
hot chute shuffle

They're my boys,
Timbo and Stualicious.

You know, I don't like Timbo.

And I'm offended by Stualicious.
Why?

Because you're combining my name
with the word delicious.

You've conjured that visual?

Ah, I didn't really like conjure
or give any thought to it.

Shocking.Anyway, I want to play
a prank on the new assistant.

You guys in or what?
Absolutely.

No, I'm not a prankster.
Come on, Timmy.

No.

We'll make him feel welcome, like
he's part of the family and stuff.

The way you make someone feel
like family

is by doing something awful to them.
Exactly.

Exactly. Okay, here's the plan.
I'll buy the thumbtacks.

Stu, you look like a tape guy.
You're on Scotch.

You know it.

And Tim, you buy the bagful
of hardcore porn.No.

Big bag, like shopping bag.

I'll get the tape.
Nope, you're the porn guy.

I'm the porn guy.
Yep.

When did I become this person?

I don't have time
to argue, all right?

Let's review what everyone's
bringing.

Stu?
Tape.

Me. Tacks.

Tim?
Paper Clips. Nope.
Wrong.

Huge bag of porn.
Exactly. What a team.

Ah, beautiful day, huh?
I admit I like getting up early.

That's right.
Early is good.
