And Remember Folks, Our Crap Can Be Your Crap…


Finally the day has come and now Karpland is officially open to the public. As you know we only accept Bit Coins and the rate of exchange is in our favor. What a pleasant surprise. The Ferris wheel is our main attraction. We are experiencing a few minor flaws, for instance; one hotel has no running water and the toilets don’t flush. But the tourists are being good sports and using out houses that are temporarily located where the marijuana fields are located. I believe the only one who really likes this is Hannah. I know she has been frequently visiting the area. It’s obvious by the way she smells. The U.S. government has yet to find out, but if worse comes to worse, we can always say we are using the waste as fertilizer. We offered the tourists that have been inconvenienced an additional weeks stay, free of charge on their next visit. So far we have no takers, but I’m sure this will change at some point.


 I for one have been experiencing a few side effects from the transfusions. On the downside, I seem to be growing some sort of thing on my back and my skin has become a little blotchy, (nothing a little makeup won’t hide.) On the upside I’ve been feeling stronger and have lost my love handles as well as my potbelly.

Another new development has caught my ear. There is talk among the younger tourists here in Karpland that Transumoning is now the new trend. It appears to be more popular than transgendering. Who would have guessed, but when you think about it, why not? It’s being referred to as sapiosexual, which embraces every form of sexual orientation. The wonderful thing about umons, is simply there is only one gender to deal with. That is why the youngsters view it as unique and want to transcend. Trans gendering is ideal for some but with Trans umoning, you have the best of both worlds, you don’t have to choose. This is great if you are noncommittal or have frequent mood swings.


As always, Aaron is skeptical. At this point in time he is the only person who can perform the procedure. I told him to just go for it. Why not cash in on the deal, build a practice, and pay off his debts. Then he isn’t trapped here anymore. He’ll have the money and freedom to go wherever he wants. But knowing Aaron he will probably stay and remain a big fish in a smaller pond.

I also suggested that he add in an additional feature incorporating smart phones. This can be done a number of ways. He can install a USB port, preferably in the cork area, or sew the actual phone into an area that is accessible. The problem with the latter is it would be hard to upgrade.
