I am just Drunk
Its true the drunker I get the more these synopsis of episodes of the first season of 12 oz mouse make sense. And if you wondering this is the season we sampled on the last Drunk and focused posse VE Radio mix.
Mouse Fitzgerald has been out of work most of the month. He's late on his rent payment, and the landlord is ready to forcibly evict him. Mouse Fitzgerald takes his pool stick down to the billiards hall and stakes his last bit of money. He wins, and returns just in time to pay up. Skillet remains unaware of Fitzgerald's gambling stunt, and thanks the Lord Jesus.
The 12oz. Mouse has painted a portrait of a Black Jesus. Suddenly there is a run of good luck all around him - Skillet wins two bets in the same day! But they must choose - does Mouse Fitzgerald get to enter the painting in a contest for the art gallery? Or does the painting stay in the living room?
Mouse Fitzgerald plans to celebrate Rooster's new job. But then they find out he didn't get it because he is a couple years too old to meet Shark's requirements.
Mouse Fitzgerald's old army buddy visits. He is now a wealthy TV minister, and offers Fitzgerald a job. The 12oz. Mouse turns it down after dishonest tactics are revealed.
During a schoolroom history class, the Eye calls George Washington a racist because he was a slave owner. The Eye gets suspended from school and sent home. Rhoda and Liquor try to persuade the Eye to apologize for his statement.
Skillet finds a sexually explicit book in the house. He is surprised when it turns out to belong to Spider Boy. However, Spider Boy's college boyfriend is only using it for a school paper.
