Credits. AIII-YAAAH! Is it just me, or is a skeleton going up in flames overkill? Like, it's dead. The pirate (or whoever) is over. You don't have to burn the bones.
Bula Bula, Day 30. A bird. People lying in the sand. They're sleeping, except for Alex, who's pretending to sleep with his hat over his eyes, but who's carefully listening in case anything happens. Alex calls this "ninja mode," and the International Ninja Association immediately files an objection, in which it states that ninjas do not lie around on the beach with hats over their eyes. That is considered un-ninja-like, in fact, which is the cause of the ancient rift between ninjas and surfers. Alex says that instead of getting up and "doing his business" (yick), he decided to listen. And he says "ninja" again, but let's try to put that behind us, shall we? As it happens, he (we are led to believe) overhears a discussion between Earl and Cassandra. Because that conversation mostly involves their confirming their trust of several people in their alliance, I don't think it's actually of that much help to Alex. The exception is that Earl says he doesn't really trust Boo, but for whatever reason, Alex does not seem at all inclined to approach Boo. I don't know what it is with those guys, but I think it must be serious, because that's actually the best information Alex gets, and he does nothing with it. Interestingly, Earl comments that he finds "being honest" to be the best way to go far, and he says that he can count on Cassandra and count on Yau Man. I have decided that "You Can Count On Yau" is the title of the inspirational song I will be submitting to American Idol. I admit I am writing to a small target audience of Earl, but if you put Blake Lewis on lead vocal, I think he could give you just the right tone.
