Roll up, roll up for the Mystery Tour!

So Ashlee Jones really does have a great job offer out of town? And Drew is heartbroken? I saw none of this coming.

Just an aside, I've taken Greyhound several times in the past five years. I've actually enjoyed it as a way to travel, but without doubt the worst customer service I've experienced in years. If you have to call their overseas call center, be prepared for a fight.

Text dumped. It's okay... Shauna still loves you, Drew.

P.S., I came home from work late last night to discover I had forgotten to press "publish" on yesterday morning's post. Today is like a single admission double-header.

Great job offer out of town: Denny's in Keokuk.

More PayPal thank yous: Thank you to Cheryl and Buckley for their generous donations to the "Santa Royale Rehabilitation Fund." I'm sure Ashlee Jones will be rehabilitated in no time.

"Your kindness and compassion as a doctor inspire me to go to medical school. Please PayPal me $200,000 instead of five grand."

Not only does this doctor walk his patients to the door, but he gives them $5,000 as well, thinks every patient in the waiting room.

"Sometimes I get so caught up in my job that I totally forget what my job actually is. When my brain finally clears, I'm left wondering, why am I covered in blood, and whose body is that?" A great big thank you to Cheryl and Karen for your donations yesterday. They were very generous.

Psycho Ashlee is even more frightening than Violent Ashlee. Drew truly looks scared for his life.

By the way, you can PayPal me $5,000 right here, right now:

I will do my best to pay you back in laughs, eye rolls, and a special tote bag. Don't have $5,000? I will still do my best on the laughs and eye rolls. But for $5,000, you get a tote bag.

Perhaps a more accurate text should read, "Killed another patient today. Buried in paperwork. Don't barge in and swear at me."

"It's five grand, five thousand clams, 50 Benjamins, quite a lot of moolah, five thousand smackers, a real bucket of samolians, five thousand smackaroonies... what I'm really trying to say is, it's a lot of bread. But I'm happy to lend you the dough so I can share you with the world."

Drew deftly slips Ashlee's earring into his shirt cuff. Later he feels guilty and claims to find it in his truffade.

Wow, the price of a good grift has really dropped. Ten or 12 years ago, Ted Confrey got 50 G's, a few years back, even Arthur Zero could get $10,000. It is definitely a victim's market.

I'm hoping that Ashlee asks for $50,000, which is exactly the amount Drew's sister gave to her conman boyfriend.

"What time?"

"I have no idea. My Rolex is missing again."

Thank you to Matthew Cunningham at the super-underground dark-Facebook page that I will not name. I totally stole this joke without asking his permission because it was too good not to steal.

"There is no moving on." Accurate.

But, listen, this is the best story we've had since "Dogs are Good," and I for one hope it never ends.

The lines in this image look a little blurry. It is almost as if it's been photocopied and reused so many times, it is starting to lose its integrity. Much like the Red Cross if they don't issue that cease-and-desist letter soon.

I'm so relieved that Shauna consented to the doctor sharing personal medical information with Ashlee. There is hope for their friendship at last. Because we all know how this will end: Ashlee and Shauna both dump Drew.

Please, please, please take them both to the same exam room and then, like every doctor in the country, make them wait for 17 minutes alone. A lot of violence can happen in 17 minutes. And then, hopefully, Drew can get punched four or five more times when he retruns.

Has the woman hiding behind her desk hit the panic alarm button yet? The People's Clinic really needs to improve security for the safety of patients and employees. Perhaps in addition to Shauna and Ashlee getting arrested, Drew will find himself in court for negligence.

Well, Miss Scarlett got her wish: Hair pulling. Hair. Pulling. Today I'm hoping she wishes for jail time. Jail. Time. Or at least a 72-hour psychiatric hold.
