Bar Patron…..Tom Davis
[ open on Houston, Texas ] [ fade to interior, Buck ‘N Brew bar ]
Cissy: Hey, Bud, I got an idea!
Bud: Oh, no.. that’s all we need, another one of your ideas, Cissy! I mean, it was your idea to buy this place, here.
Cissy: I know, Bud, but we did pretty good for a couple of months.
Bud: Yeah, but that was, like, you know, ten years ago, you know? What have we got to show for it right now?
Cissy: Well.. you can ride the bull on the fastest speed without any hands blindfolded.. I mean, come on, that’s something.
Bud: I know, but so what, you know? We need some customers here!
Cissy: Well, now that was what I was thinking about. I was thinking, instead of riding the bull, people could use it as some sort of aerobics device, like a StairMaster, or a Nautilus, like a Robo-Bull. What do you think? We could advertise it as a place where you could come and work out and get drunk, or vice-versa, whichever works out.
Bud: I don’t know!
Cissy: Well.. okay, well, don’t look now, but you got yourself a customer.
“Toonces, the Driving Cat
The cat who can drive a car.
He drives around, all over the town.
Toonces, the Driving Cat.”
Announcer: “Toonces, The Cat Who Could Drive A Car”. Tonight’s episode: “Urban Toonces”.
Bud: Alright, so what are you having, sir?[ Toonces licks his paw ]
Cissy: I think that means Tequila.
Bud: Alright, one Tequila coming up.. hey, wait a second here.. I mean, how old are you? You got an I.D., or something..? [ Toonces hands over his I.D., which is suspended ] Alright, let’s see.. Toonces.. height: 12″.. weight: 10 lbs.. hair: tabby. Okay.. birthdate: 2/25/86. Hey. That means he’s only four years old, can I give him a Tequila, here?
Cissy: Well, yeah.. I think in cat years, that’s like 28.. he’s okay. You’re okay!
Bud: Something tells me he’s done that before!
Cissy: You know, you’d better check to see if he has real money, he might try to pay us in dead birds or something..
Bud: Hey, where’d he go?
Cissy: [ looks over ] Oh, no, look! He’s starting to ride the bull! [ shows Toonces bucking on the mechanical bull ] Hey, you know, that pussy can ride!
Bar Patron: [ enters ] Uh.. yeah.. I-I-I heard you got a bull-riding cat?
Cissy: That’s right!
Bar Patron: Well, give me a beer, I’ve gotta see this![ suddenly, a crowd fals into the bar, all come to watch Toonces ride the mechanical bull – beers are quickly served to everyone ] [ cut to “Later That Night..”, as Toonces drives Bud and Cissy home for the evening ]
Cissy: Do you think we should really let him drive, after drinking that shooter and everything?
Bud: Oh, that was, like, hours ago. Besides, he had a big plates of tacos, and stuff.
Cissy: Yeah. I guess you’re right. [ suddenly panics ] Toonces! Look out![ they scream, as Toonces drives over the cliff and crashes ]
