-On that 'Glue Open' switch, is that hot glue, super glue, or wallpaper paste? . . . -If I don't have an electric eel, can I substitute either a taser with a voltage multiplier stage added, or the output of my little hamster's wheel turning a DC motor as a generator? . . . -Lastly, on the three liters, is that beer, wine, or moonshine? Must be clear on this point!!!

The open glue switch is for turning on your gluons (or off), an extra bat with aluminum foil hat will work instead of the eel, and the three liters is any kind of juice you'd like it to be. :-)

Check on the gluon flow, I happen to have a bat with an aluminum hat in the hall closet so I'm good there, and now I know I can use the 3 liters of chilled Guiness. . . . Good to go, (by the way, are the people in the waiting pew supposed be smoking(?), and I don't mean cigarettes!)

Ok, we'll drink stout and watch those folks smoke a while. Heck, we can even place a few small wagers which one goes up in flames first.

The problem is finding something that still is "stout". The imported Guiness isn't the "stout" it once was. I think they have "Americanized it" to sell more. Blah. We have an Irish Red lager that beats that with taste.
