A couple of buddies and me just got a place in Chicago. In order to properly celebrate the new pad we're throwing a bash. We had the idea to perhaps post the partie details on this forum. At this point this is only an idea. Any thoughts on such an event?

It was Saturday June 4. It was humid, but with a light lake breeze in Chitown. We were working bunko.... they were lookin' for a party.
The story you are about to see is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.
(A Very Serious) Johnny Carson: There's been a robbery.
(A stone faced) Jack Webb: Yes sir! What was it?
Johnny Carson: My clappers!
Jack Webb: Your clappers?
Johnny Carson: Yeah you know those things inside a bell that makes them clang.
Jack Webb: The clangers?
Johnny Carson: That's right! We call them the clappers in the business.
Jack Webb: A clapper caper.
Johnny Carson: What's that?
Jack Webb: Nothing sir! Now can I have the facts? What kinds of clappers were stolen on this clapper caper?
Johnny Carson: They were copper clappers!
Jack Webb: And where were they kept?
Johnny Carson: In the closet!
Jack Webb: (Ugh! Ugh! ) Do you have any ideas who might have taken your copper clappers from the closet?
Johnny Carson: Well theirs is once I fired a man and he swore he'd get even!
Jack Webb: What was his name?
Johnny Carson: Claude Cooper!
Jack Webb: You think then?
Johnny Carson: That's right! I think Claude Cooper copped my copper Clapper kept in a closet.
Jack Webb: You know where this Claude Cooper is from?
Johnny Carson: Yeap! Cleveland.
Jack Webb: That figures!
Johnny Carson: What makes it worse is that they were clean!
Jack Webb: Clean copper clappers? Why do you think that Claude Cooper would cop your clean copper clappers kept in your closet?
Johnny Carson: Only one reason!
Jack Webb: What's that?
Johnny Carson: He's a kleptomaniac.
Jack Webb: Who first discovered the copper clappers were copped?
Johnny Carson: My cleaning woman Clara Clifford!
(Smirking) Jack Webb: That figures! Now let me see if I got the facts straight here? Cleaning woman Clara Clifford discovered your clean copper clappers kept in a closet were copped by Claude Cooper a kleptomaniac from Cleveland. Now is that about it?
(Smirking) Johnny Carson: One more thing. If I ever catch kleptomaniac Claude Cooper from Cleveland who copped my clean copper clappers from the closet….
