When you got Mickey, you got class!

March 31, 2009

Promotion staffers, I hope you’re ready for the big media event to publicize the junior welterweight match.

Remember, we’re talking about the great sport of boxing here, and the match is in Vegas, so naturally people expect high class all the way.

We’ve signed Mickey Rourke to appear at the promotion event, and we need to make sure he looks great.

Lonnie, you’ll have a professional hairdresser here for Mickey’s shave and hairstyle, right?

Make sure we’ve got a clean t-shirt for him, and something to stick out of his mouth, so maybe he won’t say anything. You know, a cigar or toothpick or earthworm or something.

And Lon, don’t forget to loosen Mickey’s pants and lift his t-shirt a little to show some tummy. Like I said, high class all the way.
