A Story About Truth, Tradition, Dialog, and Groovology

17 Jun

The following is a presentation of the Truth and Traditions Theatre of Polymorphic Politics, Jumper the Frog and Kong the Gorilla, proprietors. Since the adults are not getting the message, it’s in language suitable for five-year olds.


* * * * *


Scene 1, Kong: Roar, roar, rooaaarrrr!


Scene 2, Jumper: Ribbitt, ribbit, riiibbitt.


Scene 3, Jumper, Kong, and the Purple Dragon of Immanence and Righteousness.

Kong: Whoopsie-doodle gee! Ulp.

Jumper: Whoopsie-doodle gee! Ulp.

The Purple Dragon of Immanence and Righteousness: Eat your vegetables, breath deeply, fart discretely, and learn to dance…Or else…

Jumper: ?????

Kong: ?????


Scene 4, Kong and Jumper.

Kong: Let’s talk about it.

Jumper: I agree, but first…

Together: Let’s have some vegetables! Wheee!
