Gumball Machine Maintainence

Hey True Believers! Time for another episode of "What Does Bill Ever DO Around Here Anyway?" This time out, it's Gumball Machine Maintainence! WHEEEE!

STEP ONE: Take everything apart, willy-nilly. WAIT DON'T. Too late.

STEP TWO: Clean all surfaces, inside and out. Don't use the Windex on the inside.

STEP THREE: Insert the Beryllium rods into the nuclear core carefully, making sure to allow the neutrons to do their job. Take your time and wear full protective gear.

STEP FOUR: Attach the Veeblefetzer to the Fritzenyammer; avoid bending the firewall gasket.

STEP FIVE: Put the thing on the stuff. Attach wires randomly. Ask Joe to test-plug in the machine.

STEP SIX: Admire newly-refurbished NEON GUMBALL WIZARD!

STEP SEVEN: Apply finishing touches... good as new!

STEP EIGHT: Kick box of old gumballs out of Ford Windstar with obscured license plate while traveling south on I-83 between York and Emigsville, PA at approximately 6:15PM. Take next exit, drive home on back roads with lights off. Another day well spent!

This whole operation was a sight to behold!

LMAO! (By the way, that's the first time I've ever used LMAO in a post, so feel free to feel sufficiently honored).

It's been a personal ritual of mine to get a gumball from that very machine for my daugther everytime I enter that store (whether she's with me or not). I never once doubted the sanitary comportment of the crack Comix Connection staff, and now that I've seen this I will continue my ritual with all the confidence and swagger of one who knows he is getting the very best, most sanitary product for his money.

Hell, next time I come in, I may get two . . .

Was wondering why I-83 was multi-colored.

Edward, thanks for your First LMAO. I hope we can live up to that standard.

Let it be also known that it is because of Gumball Consumers like you (and your daughter) that we will continue to strive to provide the most sanitary and fresh gumballs that you can imagine. As we speak, fresh, SOFT, chewy AND SANITARY gumballs are on their way to Comix Connection, via some namebrand shipping outfit. It would be our honor to provide you with Complimentary Gumballs at a Special Complimentary Gumball Giving Ceremony, unless you think that's way too weird, which we also do. Anyway, let us know either way when you can accept supple gumballs.
