The Last Vestige of Free Speech
Blasphemy!The Holy Church is wroth with thee!
I think it’s more like hypocrisy. If you can’t practice what you preach, keep your mouth shut.
Yes but if you keep your mouth shut you can’t practice preaching or other priestly duties like….oh nevermind.
It just occurred to me that y’all may not have heard of “The Dead Milkmen”. They were an alternative band in the Enigma label (I picked up an album called “Enigma Variations” back in the 80’s, that’s how I first heard them. The song on the compilation was called “The Thing that only eats Hippies” – damn near peed myself. This album also introduced me to the one of my modern ‘heroes’ – Mojo Nixon…but that’s a whole ‘nother ball of ear wax). Their sound was ripped down, balls to the wall rock’nroll with tongue firmly planted in cheek. The song “Stuart” goes like this:
You know what Stuart? I like you. You’re not like the other people here
in the trailer park. Oh no, don’t get me wrong, they’re fine people, good
Americans. But they’re content to sit back, maybe watch a little Mork and
Mindy on channel 57. Maybe kick back a cool Coors 16-ouncer. They’re
good fine people, Stuart. But they don’t know what the queers are doing
to the soil.
You know that Johnny Werzner kid – the kid who delivers papers in the
neighborhood? He’s a fine kid. Some of the neighbors say he smokes
crack, but I don’t believe it. Anyway, for his 10th birthday, all he
wanted was a burrow owl, just like his old man. “Dad, get me a burrow
owl. I’ll never ask for anything else as long as I live”. So the guy
breaks down and buys him a burrow owl. Anyway at 10:30 the other night I
go out into my yard and there’s the Werzner kid looking up in the tree. I
said, “What are you looking for?” He said, “I’m looking for my burrow
owl.” I say, “Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick! Everybody knows that a
burrow owl lives in a hole in the ground! Why the hell do you think they
call it a burrow owl, anyway?!” Now Stuart, do you think a kid like that
is gonna know what the queers are doing to the soil?
I first became aware of this, about 10 years ago, the summer my oldest boy
Bill Jr. died. You know that carnival that comes to town every year?
Well this year it came with a ride called the Mixer. The man said “Keep
your head and arms inside the mixer at all times.” But Bill Jr., he was a
daredevil, just like his old man. He was leaning out saying, “Hey
everybody! Look at me, look at me!” POW! He was decapitated. They found
his head over by the snowcone concession. A few days after that, I open
up the mail and there’s a pamphlet in there, from Pueblo, Colorado. And
it’s addressed to Bill Jr. And it’s entitled, “Do you know what the
queers are doing to our soil?”
Now Stuart, if you look at the soil around any large U.S. city with a big
underground homosexual population – Des Moines, Iowa, perfect example.
Look at the soil around Des Moines, Stuart. You can’t build on it, you
can’t grow anything in it. The government says it’s due to poor farming.
But I know what’s really going on, Stuart. I know it’s the queers.
They’re in it with the aliens. They’re building landing strips for gay
Martians. I swear to God.
You know what Stuart, I like you. You’re not like the other people, here
in the trailer park.
Thanks Phal, somehow I think someone at the Vatican is just as special as Stewart, they are also probably pumping out coloring books to compete with the Methodists thanks to The Dead Milkmen.
