You Know the Routine


Ken Stiggers

Miss Doodle Mae: "Jojo, our fearless leader, continues his 'You Know the Routine' approach to the holidays. The staff at Jojo's Discount Dollar Store will execute the final phase of the routine to respectfully serve financially challenged customers by selling products at very affordable prices. Currently, the 'Half Dollar Item Bin' near aisle 7-and-1/5 is the most popular sales area for quick, affordable gifts."

"Miss Wanda, our newly hired senior greeter and assistant store-display manager, has organized an entertainment and product sales extravaganza at aisle 7-and-1/5. Expect a lot of old-school Christmas music preformed by the 'Too Funky Feets Break It Down' band and a repeat performance of scenes from Chief Crazy Brother's play 'An African American Santa Claus Celebrates Kwanzaa.' The 'Too Funky Feets Break It Down Band' will sell affordable copies of their long titled Christmas CD called 'Despite Turmoil, Violence, and Unrest in the World, Santa Claus Is Not Afraid To Go Straight To The Ghetto.'

"Jojo decided to add to his holiday routine a cultural awareness session titled 'Can't We All Get Along During the Holiday Season?' The purpose of this session is to promote peace and goodwill among all people. Representatives from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim communities and other groups interested in having 'Peace Talks' will share their opinions, feelings and insights with Jojo's Discount Dollar Store customers.

"Also, don't forget the After Christmas Store Closing Party and Hot Wing Happy Hour at Clubb Chicken Wing. You know the routine."
