Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies, with Uncle Henry, who was a farmer, and Aunt Em, who was the farmer’s wife.

“What’s it going to be then, eh?” There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, George, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill winter bastard though dry.

This read with groans by The Winners. Daniel confidently gave the correct answer and both teams were booked.

“Are they all going to be this easy?” someone asked.

Score: The Winners 1, The Losers 1

Stay tuned . . . .
