IMAO Reader Theater: The RadicAlphabet

From Les of Brick Moon:

Inspired, Les tells me, by the story of the OWS losers foisting commie children’s literature like “Tales for Little Rebels” on their kids.

As someone who knows the challenges of poetic satire, this one really impressed me – he managed to keep his rhythm & rhyme very consistent (as well as under the PG-13 mark), and there were some second lines where the rhyming word he used took me by surprise (in a good way). I love that. Also, he didn’t cheat on the X-word by using a word that begins with E (an all-too-common workaround used by lazy people).

Anyway, you should probably watch this now, so you can say you saw it before it went viral – which I rather suspect this has a good shot of doing, since it’s timely, topical, creative, and well-crafted.

    Bravo Les! (More!)

    “As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly”.

    One of the best lines ever spoken on network television.

    One of the funniest episodes of WKRP.

    For those that don’t remember it, here is the condensed version:
