variety show

Thank you Bindlestiff Family Circus for making me have to explain "deep throating" to my teenagers.

Me: "Do you know what deep throating is?"
Teenager: "Yes. It’s when you swallow something partly then spit it up."
Me, thinking: *close*

I enjoyed their stark stares of dread as they tried to melt into the upholstery during my explanation. They needed an explanation because it was clear they didn’t understand when they made a dozen deep throat jokes in front of the grandfather between the theater and the parking garage. Of course, I really appreciate the detail at which you explained the proper use of a condom. I have been trying to figure out how to have that conversation with them and now I don’t need to.

Cathy's boyfriend

Thank you for the interesting date for the first half of the show. I certainly would have enjoyed sitting with Cathy but I suppose this is called a variety show for a reason.

Your show was innovative and right in line with the style I like to attempt in my performances although I’m more G rated. Thank you for keeping the spirit of Vaudeville alive. I had a blast! Of course, Danny would probably like to know that a highlight of the show was having the very Republican father-in-law sit motionless as the theater erupted into its most raucous cheering and applause in response to the very pointed GW Bush jokes.

Oh yeah… if you take your kids to Transformers, you will probably also have to explain Masturbation. PG-13 too…

I think they can figure masturbation out for themselves. (Pun intended)

You know, with a deep sleeper, a little superglue and some creativity could be a lot of fun. Why did I never take superglue to camp as a child?
