Hickory, dickory dock.

 

 

1.  Hickory and Dickory were brutish looking brothers that worked on the docks in south Philly.  They started their careers as simple laborers with lots of muscles and few brains, and eventually worked their way up to simple laborers with lots of muscles and fewer brains.  They enjoyed their jobs, even though they spent most of their time trying to remember where they parked their cars.  It was especially frustrating since they usually lost their keys in the search.

 

2.  The brothers treated the docks as if they were their own personal playground, complete with swings, see saws, and a really, really high slide.  Sometimes they even did some unloading work.

 

3.  Although "Fifi The Mouse" stood 4'2", weighed eighty pounds, and had a cute little grey tail, he never figured out where his nickname came from.

 

4.  "The Clock" was the cheesy neighborhood bar where Hickory and Dickory often drank and made embarrassing noises with "The Mouse" and his girlfriend, Trap.  Mouse and Trap had a reputation for being sharp dressers.  Trap was especially fond of jewelry, and at times wore thirty earrings in each ear.  Though she only had two ears, some believe she had as many as five ear lobes.

 

5.  "The Clock" closed its doors as soon as the old clock on the wall struck one.  In fifteen minutes the doors were reopened and a new day of business would begin.  The fact that the old clock on the wall struck one forty seven times each day never seemed to bother anyone.

 

6.  Mouse's favorite way to pay his tab was to pull his pockets inside out, shrug his shoulders, and run out the door.
