The Powder Blue Tuxedo Boys, Jan. 5, 2022
The boys are at the bar of the Frolic Room as usual. It is a rainy January afternoon in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip.
Patrick; Well, I got a call from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Timothy: Oh no! Not the Super Bowl!
Patrick: Yeah. He wants us to introduce the half time show.
Timothy: Who’s in the half time show?
Patrick: Dr. Dre, Snopp Dogg, Kendrick, Eminem, Mary J. Blige.
Timothy: Who is Mary Bilge?
Patrick: It’s “Blige”. She’s a black woman with blonde hair.
Timothy: Well, who is “Kendrick”?
Patrick: He’s a black rapper with a beard. You really should watch something besides political crap and the History Channel.
Timothy: Well, I watch the Weather Channel.
Patrick: I rest my case.
Timothy: I know who Eminem is and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
Patrick: You get a cookie.
Timothy: Do you want to take the job? We’ll have to wear masks?
Patrick: We can do it remotely from right here in the Frolic Room. The NFL is just trying to get us old farts to give a flying fuck about the half time show.
Timothy: So how do we play it? What’s the joke?
Patrick: We wear three masks apiece with the Dr. Fauci image. We have needles sticking out of the arms of our powder blue tuxedos.
Timothy: We should also wear helmets with face shields.
Patrick: Perfect. We just say, “And here for your half time enjoyment is a half time show with the same racial makeup as the National Football League.”
Timothy: Oh, I like it. But I do suggest we get paid in advance.
Patrick: Of course.
The lights flicker and dim in the Frolic Room. Could be a power outage in the valley.
