Pat over at Black Dog Hates Skunks just made my day with his latest work of genius, "Dr. Smyth and His Merry Men Save Little Johnny Edmonton: An Allegorical Passion Play." An excerpt:
Scene: Little Johnny Edmonton, a fresh faced innocent lad, sits in his bedroom, looking at his Oilers' hockey cards. A Ryan Smyth poster is on his wall. Cal Nichols, Pat LaForge and Joffrey Lupul enter.
LaForge - Hey, Johnny, how about giving us some money for that swell new arena we're going to build downtown?
Johnny - Uh, aren't you guys a bunch of rich dudes? Shouldn't you be able to finance this without public money?
Chorus: ECONOMIC SPINOFFS! REVITALIZE THE DOWNTOWN! NO MORE DRUG USING HOBO TERRORISTS!
Johnny - Who the fuck are all these guys?
LaForge - Oh, that's the Edmonton media. So, what about the money?
I implore you to read the crap out of it.
