    ... cow pies. Yep, the bovines had just finished a succulent dinner and were now doing what cows do best. Moe thought for a short while, long thoughts hurt his thinking cap, and put two and two together and came up with a five-star solution.

    "Hey birdbrain, use your mucuales and puts your back into shoveling some of those cow treats onto the tender. We'll have more that enough fuel to get up up da hill."

But now Emril was mad because there were no crawdads or hot sauce in it, and they were throwing the punch at each other. The three stooges, being what they are, of course started throwing punch too. The two Gauge mods stood and watched until the punch was gone and then they...

    "Hey knucklehead, hand me that box of sauce over there", says Moe.
    Curly reached for the box of not-so-hot sauce just as the train jarred as it begain the uphill climb. As usual, because of this, the Stooge grabbed the wrong box, and we now have Moe opening up the firebox and getting ready to throw in a box of....
