The crew at Dept. H installed a lemonade stand in front of their secret fortress this week-end as a fundraiser to help pay off The Dudes, who have been threatening to turn Fakiegrind into a parking lot if we don't meet their demands.
Located deep in the Canadian north, the Dept. H Refreshment Stand did not garner much traffic, and for a while it looked like the scheme might fail entirely, until the annual Frobisher Bay Sled Dog Rally passed the location as part of their 65 km race course.
Dept. H managed to raise $2.65, three smoked herring and a used 9-volt battery, which was just enough to buy out the Dudes and restore Fakiegrind as the bastion of free association and tedious inanity that readers have come to expect.
A big Disco Thanks goes out to Captain Cannuck, Nelvana and the anonymous underlings at Dept. H for their ceaseless efforts to keep the blog-to-parking lot ratio at manageable levels.
