Intrigued by Donnell and Tai’s dueling impersonations of Laura, I swung by Loyola Park tonight to watch the final run-through of the Chalmers show.
...Oh my heavens, my friends. I was NOT disappointed.
First of all, there was ‘The Missing Owner,’ which spawned all the aforementioned antics. You can see Laura here, in the middle of the story. Context: This is where she kidnaps a penguin from Alaska, before she takes it back to the Lower 48 and leaves it to die of heatstroke, in the street, then later uses its lifeless corpse to make a YouTube movie.
Laura: Hey There. My name’s Norbit, and I’m gonna be your new daddy.
Dixie: (worried penguin sounds)
Also, what do you love about Barrel of Monkeys? Is it the whimsy? Is it the range of genres? Is it the ambitious storytelling? IS IT THAT WE HAVE A BOLLYWOOD NUMBER IN THIS SCHOOL SHOW??
Sorry. Did you catch that?
THERE IS A BOLLYWOOD NUMBER IN THIS SHOW.
The Chalmers Show stories CANNOT get into Grandma fast enough, friends. Oh la la.
