Yesterdays gray weather found me feeling a little blue. For fun I decided to go with my friend Jen to Big Lots. It is a very creepy store filled with “all your needs for white-trash living.”
We wandered the food section admiring Peter Piper’s Pickles, very scary potted meat foods, and canned peas. In the houseware department the had a wide selection of faux Fiestaware, ant traps, and Halloween decorations.
We tried to buy candles but the all smelled like the mall and gave us a headache. As a dare, we bought some SPAM spread with pineapple.
In the toy section we found a microphone that would transmit on FM for four dollars. We bought it. In the car we quickly got it to transmit on 100 on your FM dial it actually over powered some other radio stations and sounded reasonably good.
As we drove through traffic, I began maniacal preacher rant”
“People of Ypsilanti… this message is for you coming over Ypsi Pirate Radio…There is a conspiracy against us all being perpetuated by THE MAN…. He is trying to keep you down by putting crack cocaine in your water….. Listen to me now as I say…. DO NOT drink the water….”
Although out little toy radio transmitter probably did not have too strong a range, it was hilarious to think that somebody in the car next to us in traffic just might be scanning for a radio station. Perhaps they got a little taste of Radio Free Ypsi.
When we got home we tried to eat the SPAM and pineapple. It was disgusting and made my stomach hurt.
