Sid enters the Annual Villanelle Writing Contest (which is judged by Stephen and Jame, plus some nameless guys) but his villanelle is just a rip-off of Dylan Thomas's Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night with all the lines being slightly changed to be about grocery shopping. (Bonus points for including a parody of the entire poem.)
