2. Also, the booze business.
Risky, but trust me on this.



Look for a nerdy guy in a blue British-style police box. Maybe he can help you.

8. Pick up a buck or two picking hops
Edited on Thu Jul-24-08 01:25 AM by Left Brain
Take the kids, grandma, it's a family event.

Then scurry on home and make yourself some beer.

9. Invest all you have in this company. Their products are on fire!
Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH. I see great things in the future for them.

11. Locate Prescott Bush.
Edited on Thu Jul-24-08 03:14 AM by newmajority
In 1924, his wife will give birth to a son named George, and he and his partners at Union Bank will help Hitler give birth to the Third Reich.

If you can eliminate Prescott, you will prevent all the evil spawned by both of his 1924 projects. If you choose to refuse this mission, give me your goddamn time machine, and I'll take care of it.

15. I says to one of my new friends I says:
"I've been given dis assignment, see. It's a bit, let's say, out a my realm if you know what I mean, see. But it could help stop a long line of evil spawn from mucking everything up down da line if you know what I mean..."

And he says he knows someone who knows someone named "Alphonse." After old Banjo Eyes tonight we'll be going underground to meet this Alphonse, post-haste!

14. Whoo! Just spent a little time loitering around the Flatiron building so
some of the fellows I've fallen in with could show me a neat trick. Seems the geography around the building and the building itself help create wind currents that, if you're lucky, help lift up women's dresses a bit. I had just gotten a gander at some lovely ankle when a cop gave us the old 23 skidoo.

So it's off to see old Banjo Eyes (Eddie Cantor for those of you not in the know) down to the Ziegfeld.

Bye-ya, kids!
