Local Poop
·         Friday - We Will Rock You: The Musical by Queen & Ben Elton, Roland E. Powell Convention Center.  "This show is live, dangerous and more than anything else: it rocks!" - Brian May, Queen
We Will Rock You tells the story of a globalized future without musical instruments.  Rock rebels, the Bohemians, fight against the Globalsoft company and its boss, the Killer Queen, for freedom, individuality, and rebirth in the age of rock.  Join Scaramouche and Galileo, two young outsiders, as they join the Bohemians and embark to find the unlimited power of freedom, love, and rock!
Over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have rocked along to this awe-inspiring production.
We Will Rock You reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queen's live performances and earned its top position in rock history.  Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are music supervisors, and with a "band without parallel in the theatre" behind the cast, the audience can expect We Will Rock You to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen's concerts.
·         Saturday - Pittsville Bull Roast, Pittsville Volunteer Fire Department.  The annual Pittsville Volunteer Fire Company Bull Roast to benefit our local fire department will be held on Saturday, November 9th from 6pm - 12am.

Funny Poop
·         Teacher: "Why are you late this morning?"
Student: "It’s my alarm clock.  Everyone got up except me!"
Teacher: How did the alarm clock make you the only one not to get up?"
Student: "There are eight of us in the my family and the alarm clock was only set for seven."
·         There was this gas station in "redneck country" trying to increase its sales, so the owner put up a sign saying "Free Sex with Fill-up."
Soon a "redneck" customer pulled in, filled his tank, and then asked for his free sex.

The owner told him to pick a number from (1) to (10), and if he guessed correctly, he would get his free sex.  The buyer then guessed (8) and the proprietor said, "No, you were close.  The number was (7).  Sorry, no free sex this time but maybe next time".

Some time thereafter, the same man, along with his buddy this time, pulled in again for a fill-up, and again he asked for his free sex.  The proprietor again gave him the same story and asked him to guess the correct number.  The man guessed (2) this time, and the proprietor said, "Sorry, it was (3). You were close but no free sex this time".

As they were driving away, the driver said to his buddy, "I think that game is rigged and he doesn't give away free sex".  The buddy replied, "No, it's not rigged -- my wife won twice last week."
·         Got Poop?  Let me know!  I’m going to try to get this out every Wednesday so if you get it to me by Tuesday, I’ll try to include it.  Your input is appreciated.
