Friday means more pairs of fictional characters described from Lore Sjoberg's comedy duo name generator.

- Parreira & Salmans: These are chefs from a snobby restaurant who think they're such hot shit, they're always photographed standing in that "back-to-back with arms folded" pose.

- Torgerson & Maduro: Monster Hunters. End of line.

- Millberg & Schessler: Why do so many of these names bring up images of people who work in Accounts Receivable? I don't even know what that technically is.

- Dellacioppa & Baynham: These guys operate a butcher shop that occasionally offers meats from animals that aren't supposed to exist. Like unicorn steaks. Or dragon-skin cracklins. Baynham is the one who "procures" them. Their knife rack looks like a medieval armory from the future. I know that sounds weird, but trust me on this one.

Incidentally, I can't believe I haven't mentioned this until just now, but: The Definite Articles are playing a show at Bottom of the Hill(!) on Sunday night at 8:30pm. You should come. We're the first act. This'll be one of the only shows we play this summer, so if you've always been curious to know what we sound like, now is the time.
