Cast in aspic

*Sigh* the rehearsals for The Mikado are not going smoothly. tigris said that she thought the introduction of hobby horses would be more in keeping with the light hearted nature of the play and we could work in a Monty Python coconut reference. Then Smut suggested that what with "Waiting for Godot" being in Wellington we could link to that with having a bowler hat in the play. Since he is crouched down on the hobby horse he stuck it on a lance so that people can see it. Why I have to be on stilts has not been explained but it lets me carry the cast's "Refreshments" on a little trolley under my kimono.
This photo shows the instant before the two 'Homemade To International Standards' fireworks went off and caused the problems with the sprinklers and the charring of the Meiji Era kimonos. Note the speech bubble in the top right hand corner. It is Merc asking if kilograms is the same as grams?
And we can't find the sodding hat.

It wasn't aspic.

Actually, it was a spicy marinade.

Korkuc said that the cat was "possessive, greedy, and wasteful" and claimed that the cat got pregnant after it was spayed, despite the fact that the cat was found to be a neutered male. Police took Navarro to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) where it was bathed and tranquilized. It was revealed that Navarro was recently adopted by Korkuc.

Yikeys, mikey!

No-one said that we were accepting sponsorship from McDonalds.

We got a lot of dead whales in the freezer which we have to send somewhere.

Well if that was a marinating offense, then...
...Wait up, the Frau Doktorin has run me a bath. BRB.

I feel that any production of The Mikado could be improved by the inclusion of a kooky, wisecracking umbrella as comic relief.

tigris said...

I also said I thought we should up the snarky political humor content and call it "Sadly, Noh!" but only the ponies with pastimes idea got the nod.

Another Kiwi said...

N oddball umbrella, you say? Hmmm.

It would have been so much better with a Malcolm McLaren voiceover.
