No Anchovies Please

This is the story of a young couple in Portland,
Maine.

While waiting for her husband Don to return home from work, she reaches for
a
can of anchovies. As she spreads the tiny fish across a piece of lettuce,
she notices a small
note at the bottom of the can. Written on it is a
telephone number. Curious, she dials, and
is told, "Don't move, lady, we'll
be right over." Placing the phone back on the hook, she
turns to see three
smartly dressed men standing in her kitchen doorway. Before she
realizes
what is happening to her, she is rolled tightly in long sheets of
cellophane,
transported to an international airport, and placed on a waiting jet-liner.

All this being too much for her to comprehend, she passes out.

Upon awakening, she
finds herself in a strange, foreign speaking nation
("Dalas nekcihc dna tihs nekcihc neewteb
ecnereffid eht wonk ot suineg a
ekat t'nseod ti."). Alone, fearing her escape impossible, she
seeks comfort
in the arms of a confidential agent. With the trace of her kiss still
warm
upon his lips, he betrays her to the hands of three scientists who are
engaged in
diabolical, avant-garde experiments previously performed only on
insects and other small,
meaningless creatures. Using her as their subject,
they are delighted with the results. For
the first time, a human being is
transformed into a ("shhh... it's
secret").

Meanwhile, back in Portland, Maine...

Her husband Don, now
chain-smoking 40 packs of cigarettes a day, sits at a
local bar and has a few beers with the
regulars. Bored, everyone's
attention turns to the television set that just hangs from the
wall.
("Welcome to Bowling for Dollars"). Suddenly, crazy Al says, "S-say, Don,
there
sure is something familiar about that bowling ball." To which a
terrified Don replies, "Oh my
God! That bowling ball! It's my wife!"

And the lesson we learn from this story is, next
time you place your order,
don't forget to say, "No anchovies please
