About Attack of the Lushites

SynopsisIn this thrilling, adventure-laden, grease-stained, booze-soaked comedy spanning the galaxy of tomorrow, two unlikely heroes find each other as they struggle to save addiction for all human and alien kind.

Join fast food junkie, Jalapeno Popover, and booze-hound Bud Wiser, as their two cultures clash in a titanic meeting of two inter-galactic species so different it’s just plain goofy.

Attack of the Lushites tells the harrowing story of mail clerk, Jal Popover who, at risk of losing his fat-and-sassy job forever, must deliver the first mail received in six hundred years. It must be bad news.

The Lushites are coming! The Lushites are coming! What should we do? Where should we hide? Aw, screw it. Let’s have lunch…
