But wait, there's more.
There's just no polite way to say "Buy me things", is there?
Need a band name?

In which our plucky young hero is Gilbert and Sullivan all rolled into one.
I'm working on a musical, kids.
It's going to be the most political piece of musical theater to hit Broadway in years, about a young, naive linguist who becomes disillusioned with the government and the media-industrial complex that supports it.
My working title is **Chomsky** (yes, including the asterisks).
Here's a sample:
(It's a typical American city on a typical American day. People in grey business attire walk around in the background. CHOMSKY enters, wearing a bright blue shirt and red pants and suspenders. He's reading a newspaper. The big headline on the paper: EVERYTHING HUNKY-DORY IN AMERICA. He begins singing, and the people in the background act as a chorus, at first quietly but then louder and louder:)
I used to be very content
[chorus: content! content!]
With Uncle Sam's manufactured consent
[chorus: consent! consent!]
But that was before I discovered
[chorus: what'd you learn?]
A little place called Nicaragua!
[Chomsky throws away the newspaper and begins tapdancing]
Pretty good, huh?
And just you wait until I finish the show-stopping ballad: Don't Cry For Me, Sandinistas. There won't be a dry eye in the house, I swear.(Browse: previous or next. Notes: post or read.)
