Description

"I’m not entirely sure, but I think my next guest is in a cult."

Summary

Chunt is a little depressed. He feels left out from the Insane Crown Posse because the horse king did not invite him to his party. He heard the party was awesome and that there were horses getting drunk and getting massages. Fun fact: Usidore is great at massages. In fact, if you don't hear Usidore in the beginning, it's because he's giving Arnie a massage during his intro.

Arnie says he's enjoying his red potion and Chunt asks him if he's hooked on red potion. Usidore asks him if he's sure it's red potion and not Cruel-Aid. Arnie dodges the original question.

The guest this week is Gracie, the last of the Singled Out Folk. The Singled Out Folk thought that they'd all go to the great pillow in the sky together, but they started leaving one by one without him. Arnie asks him if this is a religious sect. Gracie has been told people call it a cult.

Arnie's quandary is that he has a hard time distinguishing between what is literally fantastical in regards to Foon, or if it is just weird to him because he's not from Foon.

Gracie is unsure of what happened, because they died but over the course of 14 years. Chunt asks if George burned.

Usidore suggests to Gracie that they role play for him to practice trying to recruit people into his cult. Gracie "enters" the scene and immediate all three start in on him about it being a cult. Gracie says he's leaving, but Chunt says he knows what the crux of the problem is: he gives up too easily.

They try again, but Gracie starts to get aggressive. Arnie asks him if his goal really is to get to the pillow in the sky but Gracie is unsure now and nervous.

Arnie asks for the backstory of the Singled Out Folk and what they believe. They believe that they will have relaxed necks if they go to the pillow in the sky, because nobody likes a stiff neck. Then Usidore offers Gracie a massage.

Gracie goes on to make a point about if you deny yourself the thing you want most in the afterlife, it will be even more enjoyable when you receive it. He makes an analogy about only knowing what bad peaches taste like and then how amazing a good peach would taste. Arnie, apparently has never had a peach and nobody cares. Moving on!

Usidore brings up that since every other member of the cult is gone, Gracie can change the rules if he wants. Maybe make up some incentives for getting new members to join.

They live in a marsh, and because they sleep on rocks, at first as a cult member your job is to carry rocks from the mountain into the marsh. After a few years, you get to move on to sleeping on the rocks. Also, there are no women in the cult.

Suddenly, Usidore gets a call from the resonance stone!

Otok says they made contact with a Falsetto Marauder, but before they could get any information, Krom killed him by slicing him in half long-ways. Krom feels bad and tries to put him together but it doesn't go well.

Back to the tavern, Arnie wonders if they have a game plan or if they are just wandering around Foon.

Arnie also questions the big pillow in the sky. Gracie explains that everyone sleeps on the pillow and is at peace. Chunt asks if one person is on one end of the pillow, and someone is on the other end, and one person jumps, does the other one fly into the sky. Gracie says, duh, that's how pillows work!

Arnie realizes that he never has asked Chunt what his religious beliefs are. Chunt believes that thousands of years ago a woman named Sissy Spacechick came to Foon and she carried with her the blood of the innocent, which she dumped over her head. All of the doors of Foon shut, and then she ascended into the sky.

Usidore asks Arnie what he believes in, and Arnie says not really anything. He grew up with Catholicism, but over the years has stopped believing. Chunt offers to bring Arnie into his religion: Sissytology.

Usidore asks Gracie if he feels more confident to recruit more members, and Gracie implies that Chunt, Arnie, and Usidore have joined his cult. Chunt explains that they were just role playing and encouraging, but not necessarily joining. Chunt asks if he can just donate or something, instead of actually joining, like a side bet. Gracie says he will accept donations of rocks. Usidore's interest is piqued, the thought of sleeping on a pillow is enticing to him. The worst thing he's ever slept on is the dead body of a horse that had been bisected.

Arnie says that he finds the Insane Crown Posse a little annoying and says that if Chunt really wants to make up with them, he should make the effort to do so. Gracie says that being alone is not something you want to do long term. He'd been out in the marsh alone for 2 and a half years. Arnie suggests maybe joining someone else's cult in order to not be lonely. Gracie doesn't agree but accepts the boys' applause at how far he'd come.

Usidore opens a package from White Witch (La Blanchita)- it is a scroll that contains one of Usidore's secret names:

In the Hudson Valley, he is known as Rip Van Magic Pants.

It also includes a magic rock procured from a surly lobster (shapeshifter?) from the Cape of Cod.

Arnie reads an email from Chris Brayton (Dogshanksprinklesleeves): What happened to Usidore's pipe smoking sounds?
Answer: Blemish doesn't allow smoking in the tavern.
