"So, Spike and Andrew have the Dhumn traffickers trussed up like sides of beef in the freezer and are playing good cop, bad cop."

Dawn waggled her hand. "Not exactly. It was more like the Piranha Brothers."

"Let me guess... Spike threatened to nail heads to coffee tables while Andrew intimidated the guys with his merciless use of sarcasm, dramatic irony, metaphor, pathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire." Dawn nodded enthusiastically. "So where was Xander?"

"Stationed outside with a bullhorn."

Rachel slapped her forehead. "Of course he was. It's a good thing most demons are clueless about human pop culture."

Had to look up litotes :$ and I find myself as clueless as the demons about lots of human pop culture but still it's All Good as usual

Piranha Brothers was the clue. And why does Xander have a bullhorn, I hear you ask. Because he's lurking about outside yelling DINSDALE! on occasion.

That was unintentional. It had an R in there, but it was blurring together on screen.

Their geekiness does have its advantages.

It's too bad I didn't get your link to the sketch before reading your story; I knew there was something going on, but I was clueless. I'm woefully undereducated in the classics.

It probably should come with a warning about appallingly geeky Monty Python references.

one man's geeky is another man's classic
Nah, leave it up to the reader to keep up. A truly appreciative reader will do the necessary research.

Re: one man's geeky is another man's classic
Cool. I thought Piranha Brothers was a pretty big clue and I added a link in comments, but I have to agree that if you haven't figured out how to google or wikipedia stuff, you probably should be left in the dark.

You are seriously going to get me fired :) I'm now about 3/4 of the way down the London!Verse page and I've managed to bite my lip and keep quiet up until now. But this one made me spontaneously laugh out loud.

That was plan all along. It's a secret plot to weed out those misusing the company internet for personal browsing. Your laughter will attract the security bots who will now escort you from the premises. Or eject you out of the twelth storey window. It's a bit of pot luck, really, we're still trying to work the bugs of the bot programming.

Now, you don't really want me to tell you how they react if they catch you looking at employment sites now, do you.
