CCI: My Dinner with Joss. Well, not mine, of course. Someone ate with him. Odd heading considering it's not a first-hand account, but a Dark Horse press release on the charity event.

Well, that title is more than a little misleading.
Well, it is the title of the story, which is based on the name of the charity dinner auction. Heh.
Yeah. I meant the title of the story, not CaptainB's title. Just to be clear.
Maybe it would have been more appropriate to steal Lois Lane's headline, "I spent the night with Superman."
Disappointed!
I expected some tale of the dinner, who ate what, the topics discussed, and what everyone was wearing. sigh

Ditto.

*waits for internet to do its magic*
As did I. But I hadn't previously read Joss's promise not to set the waiters on fire. I assume that he kept that promise otherwise we probably would have heard about at least that?
Of course, Joss would never just set them on fire.
He would first introduce them to us in some memorable way...and then, over the course of the meal, use humor and dialogue to get us to care deeply about them as people. Finally, at a point when we would least expect it (perhaps as they were leaning in to say something charming about our dessert choices) would he arrange for them to burst horrifyingly into flame.

(and we would all love him for it.)

bwahahahaha!

so true!

um, but then later, he'd bring the waiters back to life in "My Dinner With Joss" the comic book....right??
Don't forget the dinner guests would have become immersed in the tale of two of these waiters dealing with confusingly fuzzy feelings for each other.
Against all odds, and despite the scheming of an evil maitre de, they finally fall in love...
...only to have one tragically lean a little TOO close to the flambe.

WHOOOOOSSSHHHH.

Sayonara, baby! ;-)

Evil flambe? Hmm. Seems like the work of D'Hoffryn. Tragically evil, yet tasteful.
