The Dick Monologues Invites You to a Tea Party!
It's been a couple of years since we retired the beloved Dick Monologues, but for those of you who can't get enough dick I have great news. A number of us Dickies will be joining forces on Wednesday, August 3rd, Year of Our Lord 2011 to present a NEW SHOW called :
YOU'RE WHAT'S WRONG WITH AMERICA!
We'll explain the concept more at the show, but I figure you can kind of guess where we're heading with this. It was inspired by two things-- 1) Something ridiculous that happened to Rudy and 2) The upcoming Day of Fasting and Prayer for Our Nation's Challenges. This prayer/fast thing is the brainchild (I use the word "brain" very loosely) of Governor Good Hair, Rick Perry, who seems to think it's a great idea to mix church and state as he asks everyone of us to partake in this CHRISTIAN prayer meeting.
In his press release, Perry-- the archetypal dick if ever there was one-- says, "Given the trials that beset our nation and world, from the global economic downturn to natural disasters, the lingering danger of terrorism and continued debasement of our culture, I believe it is time to convene the leaders from each of our United States in a day of prayer and fasting, like that described in the book of Joel. I urge all Americans of faith to pray on that day for the healing of our country, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of enduring values as our guiding force."
In short, we are being asked to contemplate what is wrong with America. Oh boy, do we have some ideas about that!
If you can stomach it, there's a video of the Guv talking about all this event, called The Response, while standing in front of the requisite American and Lone Star flags. Above all, he asks us to pray. Those of us in the Dick Monologues pray you will join us for a Tea Party as we pre-respond to the call.
