An Epic Tale

Once upon a time, a slightly insane quartet by the name of Epic had a gig. Epic does a lot of gigs, so sometimes the lines of appropriateness get a little, umm… blurred. At this recent gig, Epic was very much looking forward to singing some new songs for a lovely audience, but Epic also had some important business to conduct. You see, International Contest & Convention (IC&C) is coming and Epic has this thing about buying new clothes, especially for big events.

So at the gig, Epic looked far and wide for a restroom or a dressing room that wasn’t full of the men in the other chorus singing on the show. Alas, there was no such restroom or changing room. But business had to get done–there were new dresses to try on. So with a soccer field full of men playing in the background, Epic decided that trying on costumes in the parking lot was a perfectly acceptable approach to this monumental challenge.

Now in the interest of keepin’ it classy (ha!), the members of the quartet looked out for each other, making sure there were NO passing cars during this daring feat. Naturally, the smartest member of the quartet started snapping photos so she would be absent of such interesting evidence.

She's an expert, ladies and gents.

Another partner in crime comes along. She adds the special "pants around the ankles" touch.

Then, another innocent Epic comes along and gets pulled into the antics. At first, this innocent Epic hesitates. “No,” she says. “It’s not proper for a pregnant Epic to go around changing in a parking lot.” But eventually, the evil influencers prevailed.

Oh, the shame!
Oh, the shame!

What will this do to her unborn baby!? Will he be “Epic’ed” as well????

Say it ain't so! Stay away from Epic, baby!
Say it ain’t so! Stay away from Epic, baby!

Never fear, unborn Epic baby. There is solid field research that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that this crazy Epic-ness is not a predestined fate. In fact, top scientists have recently caught such proof on film…. as highlighted here….

"Stupid, stupid Epics."
“Stupid, stupid Epics.”

And that is the end of our Epic tale. (Look people–we’re punchy waiting for our CD to show up. We’ll try to pull it together for the next blog.)
