Gifts of the Wild Weed Band

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

The Wild Weed Band had just completed its concert on a fine day in August and was reaping enthusiastic and noisy applause from the five thousand fans extending far beyond the band stage.

“As it’s my birthday today, I feel generous,” shouted the band’s singer Magno Solo jubilantly.

“All of you who have your birthday today are invited to come up here with your concert ticket and receive a 5,000 dollar check as a token of my great appreciation of my fans,” Magno Solo held his glittering arms out in a welcoming gesture.

Rapidly a group of people with smiling anticipative faces materialized on the stage.

Bongo King, the drummer, stood ready with a bundle of checks, handing them out one by one to the overjoyed people in the group. He gave each one a big hug and a flower.

“For an additional special prize of 20,000 dollars, give your ticket to our guitarist Marco, who will convert your ticket number to a day of the month number with his little calculator. You’ll win if your number converts to today’s date,” exclaimed Magno Solo with a regal bow.

The group on the stage rushed to Marco, who checked each ticket and converted the ticket number to a day of the month number, announcing any winner with a fanfare from the band.

The concert ended with enraptured winners loudly singing the song “For he’s a jolly good fellow,“ accompanied by the Wild Weed Band to appreciative shouts and whistles from the audience.
