Purveyors of Panties

El: Mel, I have a great idea!

Mel: What is it?

El: You know how we give away a pair of thong panties to one lucky winner after each show?

Mel: Yes.

El: Well, what if we make the thongs available for sale so that anyone who wants them can have a pair?

Mel: Actually, I already thought of that. I created a store on our website where people can buy thongs, boxers and Fagnet magnets.

El: Wow. You're psychic. Thanks for doing that!

Mel: No prob.

El: Well I have another idea. A few people have been asking if there's anywhere they can go to download our music. What if we created a music store as well?

Mel: I already did that, too. It's up on our website AND our MySpace.

El: Hm. So it is. Well here's something you haven't thought of... a blog! Everyone who's anyone has a blog.

Mel: I anticipated the need for that as well and took the liberty of creating a blog which is also accessible via our web page.

El: What the hell? Have you been reading my diary or something?

Mel: No. You talk in your sleep.

El: What are you doing watching me sleep?

Mel: Ssh... don't worry about it.

Mel & El: Vocabulary Lesson #6

Wrinkles and Horrible: A way of describing various aspects of unattractiveness.

Did you see those candid shots taken at our last gig? I don't know if it was the lighting or what, but we were wrinkles and horrible in every single one.

And Then There Were Three

Only three shows left!

We wanted to write something extremely hilarious for you but this is serious business, people. Whatever you do, don't miss your chance to see one of the final three performances of "Mel & El: This Show Rhymes" at The Duplex.

It's the day after Mother's Day... bring your mother!
It's early on a work night... bring your cubemate!
It's dark night on Broadway... bring Harvey Fierstein!
