Puppet porn

In our first act of civil disobedience to protest the second Dubya Reich presidency, Andy and I attended a public screening of lewd puppet porn last night.

Team America: World Police is filled—as expected—with Trey Parker and Matt Stone's brilliant social commentary, staggeringly (and yet somehow sweetly) inappropriate sexual humor, and garden-variety cinematic cliches like copious puppet vomit and all-out puppet fucking. And we laughed out loud at the appearance of the two ferocious tigers played by bored (and not even striped) housecats.

But, while we were thoroughly entertained, I was glad when it was over. Maybe I'm just politicked (politiced? politic-ed?) out. Maybe I'm a little upset with myself for not being clever enough to write songs like "Everyone Has AIDS" and "America, Fuck Yeah."

Maybe I was more than a little disturbed by my sexual attraction to all three puppets playing the Team America guys. (Hey—the fuckers are hot.)

"America... Fuck Yeah!!"

I loved the "secret" emergency signal that the undercover dude had to use - the oh-so-subtle frantic arm waving.

Getting the hots for puppets is JUST a bit kinkk . . . or maybe you just have a taste for nice wood.

Does that mean you should avoid seeing Seed of Chucky?

I keep saying the first lyric of 'Freedom Ain't Free' to myself and giggling. 'Whut wood yew da'oo?' in the same voice as that 'Proud to Be an American Song'. I hope I can toss in my 'buck o five'.

They did nail my general feeling about Rent - great score but at times a drug-drenched pity party.

Oh and I liked 'Montage!'.
