Guest Poster: Admiral Ackbar

Admiral Ackbar here.
Now that I'm semi retired it looks like I have more time for the missus and the kids. Like the other night. Everyone wanted to go out to the new all you can eat seafood buffet that opened up around the corner. I told the little lady that I don't know -the place looks like it costs a lot of clams. She came back with a "boy, are you shellfish!" "Hey, it's not like I'm a famous bass player in a band. I only get paid scale." That shut her up. I swear she wants to start a fight every night. I think she does it on porpoise.
At that point all I wanted to do was get tanked. So the first thing I ordered was a giant margarita...just for the halibut.
Can't say much for the décor of the place but there were a lot of pretty gills around. I waved at one but the missus gave me the fish eye. After a while I wasn't feeling too good. I think the drink got my head swimming. The kids thought it was finny. I was feeling so bad I wanted to call a sturgeon. Just then the food came.
All you can eat seafood buffet...?!? I thought it was a place where us sea life could go and get a great deal! But no, they brought us a huge plate OF seafood!
Someone call a cod!
It's a trap!

Note: J.J. would like to make an apology regarding today’s blog. Admiral Ackbar has been in fact dishonorably discharged, has no known family and is a loony. He can now be seen working as a parking meter on the corner of 38th and Main.

I'm glad JJ put an apologetic disclaimer at the end.

That Ackbar is full of carp.

I thought Ackbar was working as a piano tuna.
