Happy New Year!

     Hap-pee New Year!  Hooray!  A fresh, brand-new year! I'm a-opening it up and a-divin' in...!

     ...Hey!  Waiddaminnit...  This year's already been opened.  Dog-gone it, it's probably done gone flat.  Who did this?

     (Indistinct words from Tam, offstage)


     Tam:  You did!  You came home last night half in the bag and opened up the New Year!  Right at midnight!


     I guess that's how it works, innit?

     Okay, then.  Happy 12-hour-old year!!!

If nothing else, you can use it to clean your car battery terminals.

Happy New Year.

Somehow the idea of you half in the bag brings to mind the title character from the Gallagher stories penned by Kuttner and Moore.

Ah, "The Proud Robot," and other! Possibly.

Any more, all it takes for me is one (1) champagne cocktail.

I may have to buy you a split of champagne and a few buckets of paint.

Just keep the resulting locker away from Tam and Huck. I wouldn't trust either one of em with such a device.
