At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
“Everything is changing. Jenny’s getting married… they’re remodeling the Starbucks!”
Today I went to go see:
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!
It was a totally funny musical. I really wish I could remember some of the word/definitions/sentences they gave these “kids.” It’s basically a musical of a spelling bee. They had some people from the audience come up to play characters and gave them words like “Mexicans” (…as she was walking down the street she noticed how many damn Mexicans there were), and “cow” (What’s the definition?/It is a cow./Can you use it in a sentence?/Spell the word cow./C-O-W) at first then harder ones later to get them the hell off the stage. At one point I got this:
When one of the ousted contestants went around throwing the the candy he was supposed to be selling while singing about the erection he had that caused him to fuck up his words. hehe.
SPOILER ALERT IN CASE ANYONE ACTUALLY EVER WANTS TO SEE THIS
I was rooting for the cute (I can say he was cute even though the character was 13 or something because it was played by a grownup) hippy guy who made his own clothes to win, but alas the guy with the magic foot that spelled for him won, despite the fact that his foot was taken out of commission when another kids gay father poured soda on the stage).
Oh, and at one point Jesus came out with a big glowing heart on his chest. It was quite the funny show.
Yesterday I did do more of that fun thing I said I was going to do more of but can’t tell you because I can’t let a certain someone find out. hehe.
