Uncle Sal had parked his Dodge Dart and was walking to The Crow Bar when he saw Thurman "Bear" Trapp waiting outside Maude's Maison de Muumuus.
"Bear, what on earth ya doin' here?"
Bear pointed inside the store and said, "I'm waiting on these two guys: Pete and Treat Smeet."
Uncle Sal fingered his Irksome Ibex cuff links and looked inside. He saw two hulking guys browsing through racks of floral print dresses that looked like small tents. "And why would them two strapping young lads be looking for a muumuu?"
A pine cone fell onto Bear's head and he kicked it into the street. "They are being inducted into the Fraternal Order of Grackles. One part of their initiation is, well, the public humiliation. The senior members decided that these two guys need to wear a muumuu with combat boots and then go to some dance club. I mean, they can't possibly be inconspicuous wearing something like this, but some members are going to be there with them, making sure they don't just stand in the corner and hide until the place closes. Those other members are going to make sure these guys stay the dance floor all night where so other dancers can take all the photos they want. Thing is, these guys don't find it the least bit embarrassing. They're looking forward to it. They've even said they'll pose with anyone who wants a photo."
"Hmmm. I'm not sure I'd be so excited about doin' sump'n like that. But from what yer tellin' me Bear, the Smeets have no shame."
