Since you are now in discussion with musical stars, do you think you could "weasel" in a question about their need for a bass player?

Isn't the weasel a close relative to the badger?

I think you'd have to move to Kansas City, Larry, but I'll ask.

And yes, the badger is a member of the mustelid family, along with weasels, skunks, stoats, ferrets, fishers, grisons, martens, otters, polecats, minks, tayras, liberals, wolverines, zorilla, and ermine, among others.

Dang, Terry, where'd all your fans go? I guess they read that post about how you weren't writing for us and went off in a huff. A carefully considered, delayed huff. At least you have Larry. Hey, he rhymes...

I think you were a little unfair to the mustelid family by including liberals among it members.

And I have you, too, Lenise! At least for the moment--I think I might be losing you to Larry, though, who makes girls swoon with all that rhyming stuff of his. And he's a musician and all, too.

Oh, and sorry, Larry, but if the mustelids don't like it, they need to clean up their ranks!

Rank is the right word for it.

And I'm here, I'm just not awake yet. It's only 4PM.
