The Gig

Fresh-faced teenagers worked the crowd handing out small plastic bags of white powder, the speakers blasted out the band’s back numbers.
From the wings the tour director watched as the barbed wire was stretched across the front of the stage (chicken wire, pah!) and the attack dogs and their handlers moved into position.
Hatman Hatman scratched his crotch, sprayed on a generous quantity of body odour, and picked a small bit of last night’s chicken tandoori from his teeth. As lead singer of the world’s heaviest heavy metal band he had a duty to keep standards low.
And he did.

  1. Hilarious, Patrick. I’m going to regrettably give this a miss as well. I never knew anyone who sprayed body odor on themselves or anyone who thought it was appealing. It certainly takes all kinds. Well done and certainly colorful. 😀 — Suzanne

    Sadly I lost my tickets for this gig. Graphically gross, Patrick.

    Sadly this sounds like a concert I will have to avoid. Like your style

    This is great. Spraying body odour on, hilarous. Where can I get tickets?

  5. Dear Patrick,

    Keeping the standards low. Sounds like a must to avoid. Well written.

    Remind me not to attend this particular “concert”…

  7. Geez, where you went with this one!

  8. liz young says:

    What an awful picture – well written, but I hope it remains fictional!

  9. Ha.. lowest possible standards helps but white powder might help more. The stage behind barbed wire sounds like the right level of protection…

  10. Fantastically cynical.

I'd love to read what you think ...
