The Trumpeter's New Clothes - a video SHTICK

My Dearest of Dear Sillies,
How are you? Smiling, I hope.

                                                                        
   I'm very fortunate to have a generous, talented group of local friends, in addition to you. Bill Mash, in particular, put this video shtick together, asking nothing in return. It's ridiculously funny, with ear-catching sound effects. 
   To spare you time - and given the average attention span these days is approximately 2.5 seconds - I suggest you listen to it at 58 seconds through 1:41 (43 seconds total, IF I'm doing the math correctly. That's iffy.). My favorite part, though, is the end bit, from 8:06 minutes to 9:18 minutes. (72 seconds and just as iffy).
   This is my book in its entirety, along with a lot of meshugenah.* I'm narrating it, and I laugh every time I hear the Trumpeter King's (a local friend, Jason Allen's) voice in this. Bride Gnat and Bride Knit are played by one phenomenal actress-comic, Annie Fisher. Anyway, I hope you enjoy for 42 seconds or so.

Meshugenah - from the Urban Dictionary
A yiddish word that jews use meaning crazy.
That bitch is meshugenah

    1. Oh, and wouldn't "58 seconds through 1:41" be forty-three seconds?

    2. Oh my goodness. Wouldn't the emu be from Australia, not Africa? Ha. I used to be good in math, but that was decades ago. Thanks, Silver. We won't mention my error. =)

  7. Wow! You have some talented friends to augment your own talents! Wonderful stuff, Robyn!I forced myself to listen to the "press conference" yesterday and managed it for about 15 to 20 minutes before I started to lose it. This was a needed antidote to the Cheeto in charge.

    1. Yeah, I haven't yet gotten up the strength to take that all in. Glad others are stepping forward about him, and she's well supported by the public - though that doesn't begin to offset all the evil and death threats.

      Thank you, Jono.
