After dinner tonight

It's the first Wednesday of the month so as customary the residents of Abbey Point gathered this evening at the clubhouse to break bread and exchange views and experiences.
At the conclusion of the evening, our Norwegian neighbor with the impossibly-great head of hair was called upon to pronounce a benediction. He did not disappoint.

Wes Anderson
"Ole," Wes began, "once had a job at the Gedney Pickle Plant in Chaska.
"One day he came home from work at 2:30 in the afternoon. His wife, Lena, noticed this and said 'Ole, vy are you home from verk so early?'
"I got my winkie in the pickle slicer."
"'Oh my, that's terrible,' Lena said. 'What happened to the pickle slicer?'
"Oh,' Ole said.  'She got fired too.'"

(Wes Anderson appears nightly at The Tarmac Lounge on Abbey Point.)
