War: the musical undead space comedy
I am mired down in seriousness on command post. I'll have none of that here
I often wished that life was like a musical. People break out in song at random, little kids dance their way to school, instruments sound out of nowhere and everything is solved with a rhyme or two.
I am going to make a musical version of this war, except the Iraqis are the undead, sort of like the skeleton guys in Army of Darkness. Saddam is an alto, of course, and gives all his speeches in song. He has a bevy of dancing beauties standing behind him at all times and they do synchronized dance routines to his rhymes.
Rumsfeld, the Centcom guys, Helen Thomas - they all sing. And dance.
And then there are laser beams and death stars and funny looking creatures with beady eyes that hide in sand dunes. And robots. And monkeys. Lots of monkeys.
Seriously, let's plot and cast this thing and get it going. We could fund the empire with the box office receipts.
Great news! Nathan Lane has agreed to take on the part of Helen Thomas and Tammy Faye Baker will be portraying Dick Cheney.
Also, scantily clad slave-boys are meant to perform for Keith, so please keep that in mind when you volunteer.
