STUPID QUESTION TIME  
I'm in the middle of updating the next chapter of my Cannibal!Brian fic and I need to have a question answered, if anyone knows the answer, I'd appreciate it ever so much.

What are those plastic things called that package 6 cans of soda together? I just can't remember for the life of me.

It's stupid, I know. If someone can give me the correct answer, then you can decide who goes into the sausage next. Thanks

I've never heard them called anything other than "six-pack rings." Is there a real specific noun for them?

I think so...

God, I remember they had a name. I'm sure of it. There's an ecological problem with them because the fish get caught in them.

Is it as simple as six-pack rings?

Googled it -- apparently they're also called yolkes. I suppose cans are like oxen. :)

Whoops - "yokes", not egg yolks!
Mariaslave_o_spike on June 10th, 2006 05:39 am (UTC)
Got it. Yokes.

Yay! Yolkes! Well, that's an awkward word. I must be getting tired if I didn't even Google it myself.

Anyways, thank you very much and I'll stick to my side of the bargain - if you wanted to pick the next "victim.'

Is Mikey off-limits? Maybe he could fall into the grinder by accident or something.
Maria: Psycho fandom issuesslave_o_spike on June 10th, 2006 06:46 am (UTC)
Yes, Mikey is off limits - I have big plans for him.

Think supporting players. I don't know how far you've read in my story (I just posted Chap 6) but in the latest chap I reference 2 bit characters that really irked me.

Oh, I've been following this since you started. It's original and hilarious! How about Lindsay?
Maria: Young Ones mouseslave_o_spike on June 10th, 2006 03:17 pm (UTC)
I have plans for her too. Think outside the main cast (Debbie, Vic, Mikey, Mel and Linds, Ben, Ted and Emmett). Did I forget anybody? Maybe even Carl.

I have actually have the ending written (don't worry - it's still not close to the end - I just like to know where I'm going). In the chapter after the next one I post, I think everyone's gonna do a OMIGOD at the victim that I pick. That one is set in stone but I'm always up for suggestions of anyone from the show that really irked you who made a guest role (like that Rosie O'Donnell waitress really irked me in S5).

Oh and thanks for the inadvertent fb.

Oh that would be great! Oh I already thought of something. Oh, oh, oh. It's perfect!

Thanks (probably won't be for a few chapters though but I totally forgot about him!) :):):)

I am so going to hell for this one...

Adoring the insanity by the way!

Thanks, I friended ya back BTW. I have absolutely no idea how many people are reading this fic though at this point.

Ooo...how about Stockwell? Could be some interesting storylines surrounding that one. Rage strikes again! Weapon of choice? Meat grinder!

Hey! Did you get your hands on my victim list?
