Hamming it up at theater in the round?

July 21, 2008

meat-2-200-0720.jpgFor the second time in a week, I’m presenting Things Maybe We Should Have Explained in a Caption, but Didn’t.

I have no choice, what with finding photos of a stage drama in which the caption tells us an actor is “dressed in meat.” Say what?

Don’t worry, I’m not going to stoop to awful word-play, like meaty role, a rare performance, the play was well done, he butchered the part… I do have some dignity, you know.

But I will say two things here. First, I suggest you see this play as close to opening night as possible, because those costumes won’t improve with age, if you take my meaning. And second, if my dogs ever get tickets to this play, it will not be a pretty sight.

First of all, what a waste of food. I certainly wouldn’t want to eat something that someone had been WEARING previously.

Secondly, I’d hate to know how that guy smells after the performance. My brother used to work at the fish counter in the local grocery store, and even though he never ended up wearing the fish, he still smelled bad, even after a shower.

Veggie burger anyone?
