    They held that what you believed to be Other Folding Stories are only different perspectives of the One Sole FoLding Story. Each perspective is a single Soul. Their model had more soul. And it paired well with chicken fried swamp rat and a Roota-Toot Extra Sugar Root Beer.

    I got food poisoning at that stand once. lol

  5. LordVacuity May 25 2017 @ 13:03

    So if you only got your food poisoning there once, where do you usually get your food poisoning now?

  6. Woab May 25 2017 @ 13:30

    I usually get my food poisoning at Botchy's House o' Botulism. They give me discounts.

    I usually get mine at Sarah's Salmonella Stand on the other side of town but, it was shut it down after Det. Manatee implicated it in a money laundering scheme. It reopened recently under new management.

    A mis-read of Rebbie's post inspired me to start a new monkey-laundering story here: http://foldingstory.com/17evh/

    Wierd, or not, I read "monkey-laundering scheme" too.

  10. LordVacuity May 25 2017 @ 16:21

  11. Rebbie May 25 2017 @ 16:26

    Don't worry Woab has set me up to launder them for you.

    The story turned out great, but the comments afterwards were the money shot. I'm in a snit of envy, guess I'll go wash my monkey.

  13. Rebbie Jun 15 2017 @ 17:31

    That'll be $107.50, Pinky. But if you act now I will throw in a set of Guinsu knives for free.

  14. Woab Jun 16 2017 @ 17:33

    OMG, who threw this set of Ginsu Knives into all the clean monkeys?!?

  15. LordVacuity Jun 16 2017 @ 20:40

    Did you want monkeycide? Because this is how we get monkeycide.

  16. pinky Jun 17 2017 @ 16:43
