Guess what? Today I've got two new TJI Briefs for you, both slightly past their obvious inspiration dates but still edible. Here's #5, Sheridan unveils groundhog plan, and the very strange #6, Giants crush patriots.

(Also, we've now moved to a better server. Thanks as usual to AntonyF for the seamless changeover.)

#5 is particularly amusing, but #6 is great too!

"I'll never forget the last thing Kosh said to me before he di-- uh, fell down. He said 'Groundhogs are the key to GAK.' Look, the fall took a lot out of him. Anyway, Vorlons are never easy to understand, but I believe I've found the meaning of Kosh's words. My track record is pretty good. Remember when I saved us from that space probe a while ago? I realized just in time what Kosh had meant when he said 'Later today, blow up a probe.'"
Verrrrrrrry nice.

"It may seem silly, or even just pun-based," continued Capt. Sheridan, "but this new plan will help us stave off the Shadows, and that's what counts. My critics call it rodenculous; I call it prodent."
Capt. Sheridan then died, but recovered in time to issue the groundhogs their assignments.
Very funny. Great puns.

Excuse me while I change the year on that. I was just using the year "A Hole in the World" aired.

Do American "football" teams really have such daft nicknames as that*? Also, do you have have any kind of Google account on the go, Zeke? I sent you an email but neglected to actually ask about that part.


*Disclaimer: Ours are probably dafter, but speaking from a position of near complete ignorance on the matter, I don't care so much.

If you mean 'Giants', 'Patriots', 'Packers', 'Cardinals', and 'Redskins', then yes. If you mean 'tailors', 'slingshot-wielders', 'Lilliputians', or 'math teachers', then no. If you mean 'groundhogs', then you must be reading the wrong TJI.
