Q: What’s up with all the hostility towards the Dead?

A: It’s not hostility at all.  And it’s not towards the Dead, if you think about it. I’m only writing about the Grateful Dead that exists in my head, the cartoon version.  When the Harlem Globetrotters were on Scooby-Doo: that’s the version of the band that’s in my head. They would be giving a concert at a haunted amusement park and play behind the ghost chase montage, except the montage would last 42 minutes.

Q: Fine. What about the hostility towards Bobby?

A: Bob Weir is a terrorist.

Q: That’s a serious accusation.

A: I’m a serious man.

Q: Really?

A: No.
