The Greatest Stories Never Told...TOLD!

Tonight is Robot vs Dinosaur's production of The Greatest Stories Never Told...Told! at Chicago Sketchfest at 8pm at the Theatre Building - Belmont and Racine. We will be in the South Theater along with Johnny's Regret. Tickets are $12 at the door. Please come check out our historically inaccurate adventurous shenanigans.


Robowriters in on the move. We will be in a new place at a new time starting in February. Love the Uptown Writer's Space, but we have outgrown it. We need a space where we can do table reads and jump up on our feet and move around and be loud (Geoff Crump is a very loud man). As soon as the details are finalized, I will post them.


Yesterday, I asked...

"Two men in New York have been arrested for bringing what to a check-cashing store?"

10% said "A wide selection of pay stubs"
- Go ahead. Pick one. They're all me. I sometimes go by Gloria. And Rufus. Or Carl.

10% said "A sling shot"
- That's right. Dennis the Menace has turned to a life of crime since Bart Simpson has stolen his thunder.

30% said "A stolen wallet"
- Just trying to do a good deed and make a little money.

50% got it right with "A dead man"

According to the Associated Press, Detective Travis Rapp saw David J. Dalaia and James O'Hare wheeling a rigid, pale body down a Manhattan street in a red office chair, drawing a crowd of suspicious onlookers. The man was dead, and two of his friends had hauled his corpse to a store to cash his $355 Social Security check. The trouble began when Dalaia and O'Hare tried to cash Virgilio Cintron's check at a store. The man at the counter told them that Cintron had to be present, so they went back to his apartment, which one of the suspects shared with the dead man. Well, the counter guy never said the man had to be alive! No foul play is suspected previous to the death, just after.
