    Alright, looks like I've got some 'splainin' to do. :)

    1. The jalapenos...That's too much work just for using the word two times I think...If I was gonna use it more and make it a prominent part in the story I'd fix it but...:zany:

    2. Yes, the Gonzonian is the Uber-Gonzo. And the reason I changed his "name" is because I always thought of Uber-Gonzo as a title, short for Uber-Gonzonian in this case, meaning he was the head Gonzonian. And as for Oznog being another Muppet character...I had no idea...:p But uh, my reasons for choosing the name Onzgo will be revealed in a chapter soon to come.

    3. Uber-G's daughter's name is Flanzgo. Just a name I made up...

    Hope that answers all your questions Ed.

    Oh, and as for more...Um...Tomrrow!

    OK... Can understand... Just it stands out as a nitpick for me when I see Spanish words, or anything else for that matter, that should be corrected. Though, I've made it this long understand matleo's and Kyle's posts with all the bad typos they have...

    Just thought Flaznog made more sense, cause it has the first four letters of the name of your fave weirdo backwards at the end. That, and I want to know how it's correctly said given the typos with the names.
    It is Oznog you're meaning right? Not Ozngo?
    Just checkin... And post when you can, our nagging sticks will be at the ready. Heh, guess those've replaced the old standard, the penguin cannons round these parts.

    Chapter 7

    After Gonzo had returned home to the boarding house on Tuesday afternoon, it was decided that a huge party would be held in Gonzo's honor in the Muppet's backyard. Sweetums and the other Muppet monsters strung lights and set up tables and chairs outside. And the jacuzzi was reopened just for the occasion.

    When night came, all of the Muppets residing in the boarding house joined in the party outside. The Electric Mayhem jammed on their instruments all night long.

    Rizzo, who was in his bathing suit, grabbed a plate of cheese cubes off the buffet table. Clifford lowered his sunglasses from where he stood behind the punch bowl. "You got enought cheese there Riz?"

    Rizzo shrugged. "Hey, I'm just tryin' not to cause too many lines by just takin' it all!" the rat said as he walked back to the jacuzzi and hopped in next to Pepe.

    "Jou know Ritzo, maybe it's a good t'ing dat we didn't tell Gonso about dis jacuzzi," Pepe said, turning on the jets.

    "You still haven't told him?!" Rizzo shouted.

    "Well jou know, I was just waiting for de right time and it hasn't come up jet," Pepe said.

    "Pepe you have to tell him! Now!" Rizzo demanded.

    "No way, hokay? I can't ruin Gonso's night, I mean just look, he's having his own poultry party!" Pepe said as he motioned to Gonzo who was dancing with Camilla.

    Rizzo looked at his best friend, "Alright, I guess it can wait. But you have got to tell him before he leaves on Thoisday!"

    "Si, I will tell him, hokay?"

    "You will."

    "Si, I will! Dios mio, lay off, hokay?"

    * * * * * * * * * * * *​

    Butch and Clyde sat on a hill behind the Muppet Boarding House. Butch looked through his pair of binoculars down at the party. "Alright Clyde, we gotta go now! They're all out of the house!"​

    Clyde nodded. "Yeah! That party looks like so much fun! I brought my swimming suit just for the jacuzzi!"​

    "We're not going to the party you idiot!"​

    "Aww, we're not?"​

    "No, we're going to steal a rocket ship from the basement!"​

    "Why do we need a rocket again?"​

    "Because, we're gonna go into space and find an entire race of aliens and earn our place at C.O.V.N.E.T.!" Butch explained.​

    Clyde nodded. "Oh, ok, I get it...The basement?"​

    "Yes the basement!"​

    "To the basement!" Clyde shouted.​

    * * * * * * * * * * * *​

    Meanwhile, inside the basemen, Bunsen and Beaker were putting the finishing touches on a rocket. "Screwdriver please Beaker," Bunsen asked his assistant.​

    "Mee me mo," Beaker said as he anded Bunsen a screwdriver.​

    Bunsen turned a srew on the rocket and tossed the screwdrvier behind his shoulder. Beaker had to pull his head inside his lab coat to avoid teh flying tool. "Please Beaker, this is no time for fooling around, we must get this rocket ship fixed before Mr. Gonzo needs to blast off on Thursday! Now may I plesase have the sledgehammer?"​

    Beaker's meeps inside his lab coat were muffled as he handed Bunsen a hammer. Bunsen gently hammered on the rocket, then swung the hammer around, hitting Beaker's chest, sending his head popping from his lab coat. "Beaker, I think I'll use the chainsaw instead," Bunsen decided. ​

    Beaker tossed his hands up and shook his head. "Mo mo mee!" Beaker begged.​

    "Oh come now Beaker," Bunsen said as he started up the saw. "I only cause you to get forty-three stitches last time, how much worse could it get?"​

    * * * * * * * * * * * *​

    Back outside, the party was beginning to wind down, and the band caught the drift and began to play a slow song.​

    Kermit was sitting at a table holding Robin, who was sound asleep, in his lap. Gonzo came up to Kermit holding Camilla at his side. "Hey Kermit," Gonzo whispered. "I just wanted to thank you again for the party, it's been great." ​

    "No problem Gonzo," Kermit whispered back. "We're all just happy to see you again."​

    Gonzo nodded and rubbed Robin's little head. "The little guy's had a big day," he said.​

    Kermit smiled. "Go on Gonzo, you and Camilla go dance."​

    "Bawk bawk," Camilla nudged Gonzo.​

    "Ok honey, let's go," the weirdo said to his chicky-poo Camilla as they walked back onto the dance floor.​

    Kermit sighed and stroked Robin's head. He hummed the tune to "Bein' Green" to his sleeping nephew. It had been a long day for all of them, not just Robin.​

    Miss Piggy poked her head behind Kermit. "Kermie, would vous like to dance?" she asked.​

    Kermit grinned, "Oh Piggy, thanks for volunteering to hold Robin while I go dance." ​

    Piggy growled. "I was talking about dancing with me!"​

    Kermit put Robin down on a chair next to him. "I know Piggy. I guess that joke of mine bombed worse than Fozzie's."​

    Kermit grabbed Piggy's hand and escorted her out to the dance area. Once there, she grabbed his back and pulled him to her chest. "Oh Kermie," she swooned.​

    "Oh Piggy," Kermit said scrunching up his face.​

    * * * * * * * * * * * *​

    Butch and Clyde walked quietly up the porch at the boarding house and pushed open the door slowly. "Shh," Butch whispered to Clyde.​

    Clyde turned to a cricket chirpping in the grass. "Shh," he whispered.​

    Butch grabbed Clyde's shirt collar and dragged him into the house. They tip-toed into the kitchen and teh looked at the staircase leading down into the basement. "Alright Clyde, this is it."​

    Clyde was eating a piece of cake behind Butch. "I'll say! This is it! This is the best cake I've ever had!"​

    Butch knocked the cake out of Clyde's hands. "Will you stop that?! This mission requires patience and decisiveness."​

    "Right, right, patents and detergents," Clyde nodded.​

    Butch rubbed his head. "Why me?" he asked. "C'mon, let's go."​

    The two Muppets descended the stairs and were stopped by a door at the bottom that had a sign in the middle that read "Muppet Labs: Where the Future is Being Made Today!" Butch tried to turn the door knob but it didn't budge. "Dang, it's locked," Butch muttered.​

    "Maybe we should knock and see if anyone's home," Clyde suggested.​

    "Oh yeah, great idea, and we'll be discovered by whoever's in there!"​

    "It was just a-"​

    "-A stupid idea!"​

    "Sorry Butch I-"​

    "-Need to stop talking!"​

    "Ok sorry-"​

    "STOP IT!" Butch yelled. He clamped his mouth with his hands. "Look what you made me do!" Butch whispered. He put his head to the door and listened.​

    "Beaker did you hear that?" one voice said.​

    "Mee mo?" another responded.​

    "Oh, I suppose it was just some racket from the party outside."​

    A chainsaw began running, and Butch exhaled. "That was too close, c'mon Clyde, you almost blew our cover." Clyde folded his arms and glared at Butch. "I'm just sayin'."​

    Butch looked up and down the door. "Aw, this'll be easy."​

    The big blue brute rose his arms and formed his hands into fists and brought them down. The door to Muppet Labs fell to the floor.​

    * * * * * * * * * * * *​

    The crash was heard outside at the party over the Electric Mayhem's uncharacteristically quiet music. The dancers and band all stopped and everyone turned their heads toward the boarding house.​

    "What the hey?" Kermit said.​

    "It sounded like it came from the basement," Fozzie said, worriedly.​

    "Ooh, lots of stuff for me to clean up in the morning," Beauregard remarked.​

    The Muppets rushed inside and headed to the kitchen, they all stopped at the opening to the stairway.​

    "Well guys, let's go," Kermit said as he began to walk down the stairs. He turned around and realized that no one was following him. "No one's coming with me?"​

    All of the Muppets were visibly shaking in fear. Gonzo looked around at them and realized he should start shaking too. Having fear would take some getting used to.​

    Fozzie, who was holding Rizzo to his chest, looked down at the rat and pushed him forward.​

    Kermit scrunched up his face. "Thanks for the support guys," he said as he continued down the stairs.​

    When he reached the bottom of the stairs he saw the door lying on the floor, and Bunsen and a charred Beaker in the same position in front of a gaping hole in the wall. "Dr. Honeydew, what happened here?" Kermit asked.​

    "Oh Mr. Kermit sir! It was horrible! Two blue and pink brutes charged in and stole our Muppet Labs Outer Spacer!" Bunsen wailed.​

    "And what about that gaping hole in the wall?" Kermit asked.​

    "Oh, why that was the Muppet Labs Security System!"​

    Kermit frowned. "You designed a security system that blows a hole in the wall?" ​

    "Why of course, with a hole in the wall, the robbers can escape and cause us no harm whatsoever!" Bunsen said. "Although, Beaker did get blown up along with the wall..."​

    * * * * * * * * * * * *​

    "Well Kermit, we've found two sets of hand and footprints and tufts of blue hair, we'll run it through a DNA scan and have the results within two or three days," a police officer told Kermit.​

    "Thank you Officer Barretta," Kermit said to the officer.​

    The officer nodded and left the boarding house, driving away in his squad car.​

    Gonzo came up behind Kermit, he was the only other Muppet still awake. "Kermit, I'm so sorry," Gonzo said.​

    Kermit turned to face the weirdo. "Sorry? But why Gonzo? You didn't do anything."​

    Gonzo shrugged. "If it weren't for my party you could've been in here to stop those thives."​

    "Gonzo that's crazy talk, if anyone should be apologizing it's me, I'm sorry that it was the rocket you were going to use to go see your family that got stolen," Kermit said. Gonzo sighed. "But don't worry, Bunsen and Beaker are already working on one of six more they have down there in the lab," Kermit reassured him.​

    Gonzo smiled. "Yeah."​

    Kermit and Gonzo walked into the living room and took a seat on the couch. "So Gonzo, tell me, why did you stop doing your stunts all of the sudden?"​

    Gonzo looked at the floor as if he was ashamed of himself. "I was afraid for the first time Kermit," Gonzo said. "I realized that I would miss you all too much if I really did hurt myself."​

    "But Gonzo, you heard it straight from the pasta's...Mouth, you heal almost instantly!"​

    Gonzo shook his head. "I just can't do it anymore Kermit. 'Cause now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain," Gonzo sang.
    "My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case of which I'm certain
    I've done the stunts of fools, I've blown through each and every sky-way
    And more, much more than this, I'm done with my way.

    "Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew
    But through it all, when there was doubt
    I'd eat it up and spit it out
    I faced it all and I stood tall
    I'm done with my way."​

    Kermit put his arm around Gonzo's shoulder, "But Gonzo, you've loved, you've laughed and cried," Kermit began to sing.
    "You've had your fill, your share of losing
    But now as tears subside, you should find it all so amusing
    To think, you did all that, and may I say, not in a shy way
    Oh no, oh no not you, you did it your way."​

    "For what is an...er...man? What has he got?
    If not himself, than he has not
    To say the things he truly feels
    And not the words of one who kneels

    "The record shows, you took the blows
    And did it your way!"​

    "I'm sorry Kermit," Gonzo said. "I just can't anymore, I just can't. I'm done with my way."​

    Kermit took his arm off Gonzo's shoulder. "Alright Gonzo, if that's what you really want," the frog said as he got up. "Goodnight Gonzo.​

    Gonzo looked Kermit in the eyes, his eyes were filled with sadness and worry. "Goodnight Kermit."​

    Oh, poor Gonzo. Still afraid and apologizing for things that are not in his control.

    I'm really enjoying your story Ryan.

    Another great chapter! I loved the party and Kermit's joke "Thanks for volunteering to hold Robin while I go dance" That was great! Also loved Gonzo's singing of my way and I just feel so bad for him. Can't wait to read more!

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Great chapter. Loved the party... Rizzo and Pepe arguing over telling Gonzo about the jacuzi.
    Butch and Clyde... Probably some of your finest work, melding their slapstick villainistics.
    The bit with Beaker, how his head ducked into his lab coat, and then popped back up when he got hit in the chest with the sledgehammer... Funny.
    Gonzo singing My Way, helped out by Kermit... Cleverly done, points for that.

    OK... So, when should we line up the penguins in the cannon to get more story?
    J/K, post when you can buddy.

    Nooo, I disagree. Those penguin cannons are so much fun to fire. Honestly try it and you'd be wanting to fire them off too. Getting back to the story. Wonderful chapter. And that song had me grabbing for my little white teddy. Also, I think you just gave me a new favorite saying...

    "You heard it straight from the pasta's mouth."

    Why do I like that..I dunno...thought ya'll knew I was weird. :)
