I feel the need to point out that Pfranz Capfka and Faldage of Fong are thick as thieves. Y'all know how guys are. Mickeys notwithstanding, they show affection by poking fun at each other; I think that phenomenon is under Rule #9 1/2 in the Male Bonding Manual.

And both the Mickeys (Finn and Bliss) in question derive from the slang term for a Hibernian, yes?
