Who is Lonnie Bumpus Jones? My dad says his name sometimes and laughs.

And the free ice cream? And ponies?

Nu? You falling down on the job?

Sugarmama, Lonnie Bumpus Jones is a voice character of local radio talkshow guy Kurt Kilpatrick, along with The Senator, Red Wood,and Uncle Mac. Lonnie is a rather large man with a Luther Vandross voice and a Ruben Studdard physique. He dearly love his Kripsy Kreme donuts.

Now, Skinnydan, I'm doing the best I can with the free doughnuts--the ponies and ice cream might have to wait a bit.

I'm beginning to wonder if we'll EVER see any free ice cream. And ponies.

You wouldn't be pulling a fast one here, now, wouldja? (And yes, I know there is no Santa Clause - he doesn't stop by the Hebrew neighborhoods that often anyway)

You wound me, sir! Was I not the one who made sure everyone on the team got brand new shoelaces for their softball cleats!? Did I not give everyone a brand new pencil for Arbor Day?! I give and GIVE, and all you people want is MORE! MORE!

Just more ponies and ice cream.

::sigh:: Fine. When the ice cream truck comes around today, I'll get everyone something. And I have a whole package of My Little Pony stickers I got from the Dollar Tree for each one of you.
