Description: QWRP is back! Property lottery is... "resolved", Edith jumps in to help, and Richter clears the skies.
Sponsor: Dutch & Hutcheon Touchin' Escutcheon
Slogan: The Finest Burgers in Therpston County! A product of Weiner Czar's short-lived attempt to get in on the slider craze by producing granulated burgers.
It's Buccaneer Days down at Nsburg Drive-Thru Automall, celebrating their 40th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of the banning of leaded gasoline. There's a chrome rush in the Shaughnessy River (not the Shaughnessy River II) after someone discovered a set of valuable hubcaps. Between segments Graham and Alex grudgingly acknowledge Captain Toot-Toot's Seafood Buffet, which, as a result of the mix-up at the Property Lottery seven weeks ago, now holds the deed to the broadcast studio. Edith discusses the 19-way swap she had to organize after said Property Lottery; in the process we learn that she had to recover the deed to her own apartment, plus the studio, plus Graham's aunt's summer house, as well as convince the Nsburders Brown Thrum Conservation Society not to turn Richter's helipad into a bird sanctuary. Muriel the Old Wife has moved into a large 4-bedroom home in Raster Heights, while Michael O'Leary seems to have ended up with her closet.
Nothing is going on in the arts this week.
Richter is spending his day in the QWOPter shooting down small drones with a shotgun. He declares that mankind was meant to fly in machines with a single rotor (even though the QWOPter technically has two), rather than the four on a quadcopter, and promises that as soon as these pretenders are cleared from his sky he will happily deliver the traffic report. Graham and Alex are...skeptical.
