“Meet Chuck”

[ The Muppet Show Theatre backstage. Kermit and Fozzy are there.

ChuckN enters through the door. ]

Kermit: Oh hello, Mr. Norris. We’re so glad to have you here and we would love to learn more about you.

ChuckN: Thank you, Kermit. You can learn more about me from my 500-page autobiography, which took me an hour to write, and from the comprehensive book of Factoids about me, of which I wrote every one.

Fozzy: Funny! Funny!

ChuckN: Indeed. Anyway, I invited a friend of mine, who is even crazier than I am, to join us.

Kermit: Really, who is this crazy guy?

ChuckN: Actually, it’s a crazy girl.

[ SGlau jumps from above the frame to the upper row and then down to where Kermit and Fozzy are standing. Applause. ]

Kermit: Oh, nice to see you here, Ms. Glau.

SGlau: Shut up, Mr. Frog! I’m here on a mission from the Grammar God. Herr Norris and I are loyal servants of Grammar Nazism, which aims to unite Grammar Europe under the reign of the Third Grammar Reich.

ChuckN and SGlau: [in unison] Hail Grammar!

[ Miss Piggy is walking on the upper row with a fellow pig. ]

Miss Piggy: Well, I don’t think that Miss Mousy is prettier than me.

[ A shot sounds and Miss Piggy's hat is blown away. Cut to SGlau who is holding a gun in her left hand. ]

SGlau: That was a warning shot, Fräulein Piggy. For your information, it should be “is prettier than I”.

ChuckN and SGlau: [in unison] Hail Grammar!

SGlau: Let’s go.

SGlau: By the way, herr Frog: it is not that hard to be green.

[ They go out of the frame. ]

Kermit: Meep. I have a bad feeling about all that.

“Venting Is Us.”

[ A modern tech office whose door says: “Venting is Us.” with a large version of xkcd: “Venting”. ChuckN and SGlau are sitting inside. ]

ChuckN: OK, Summer, I finished writing another rebuttal, as whom should I sign it?

SGlau: How about as Rory Gilmore?

ChuckN: Sounds good. You can sign yours as Jennifer Love Hewitt.

SGlau: Cool.

[ A few muppets who look like Mafios storm in. ]

Head Mafio: Are you Summer Glau and Chuck Norris?

SGlau and ChuckN: [Startled] Yes, we are.

Head Mafio: Well, I am seeking vengence on a blog comment the two of you wrote and signed as Tiffany Alvord, so we are going to wack up this office.

Head Mafio: No, using these machine guns! [Mafio muppets showing their machine guns.]

[ ChuckN and SGlau quickly raise their hands. ]

SGlau: Ahmm... may I consult with Chuck for a moment or two?

Head Mafio: Yes, I suppose.

SGlau: [Whispering to Chuck] What do we do now?

ChuckN: I don’t know, I don’t have a gun here.

SGlau: Well, it’s not exactly Texas.

ChuckN: Maybe we should surrender?

SGlau: We can apologise… [thinking] wait!

SGlau: [To the Mafios] Listen, we apologise for attributing all these rebuttals to these good people. Anyway, what do you say of us becoming “Don’t be venting - be perfecting” and help people to write essays and articles in proper and correct English?

Head Mafio: [ He has tears in his eyes. ] Sounds very honourable, Ms. Glau. Alright, we’ll give you two another chance.

ChuckN: Yay!

[ Cut to the new office with a new sign of “Don’t be venting - be perfecting.” ]

ChuckN: Finally, note that I find that the Saxon Genitive will be preferable there.

Mikhael: [ Russian-sounding Voice from the Internet ] Thank you Mr. Norris. I’ll be forever grateful to you two.

SGlau: You’re welcome, Mikhael. We will appreciate some publicity in social media outlets, and a monetary payment, but we really love helping people like you.

Mikhael: Sure, I’ll do all that.

SGlau and ChuckN: Bye! See you!

Mikhael: Good bye.

SGlau: Hmmm… I think we are actually making a profit from all that.

Head Mafio: OK, it seems you two have become benevolent pillars of society, so not only will we let you go, but we will offer you protection.

SGlau: Really? For how much?

Head Mafio: At half-the-price today: 5,000 virtual love points.

SGlau: Tell you what? We can give you a million real love points. [She does a heart with her hands.]

Head Mafio: Offer accepted. Now I need to prepare for my niece’s birthday party - she is going to be 10 years old. You two are also invited.

ChuckN: Why, thank you!

SGlau: Yes, we may actually drop by.
