Stroke of genius

My friends, I have an exciting announcement to make. While nursing on my monkey foot, I entered a place of perfect calm and clarity. My mind focused, and I understood Allah's plan like never before. And then it hit, smack-dab in my already-flattened face: an epiphany. An idea that touches on all the key missions of Pug Life Ministries -- spiritual outreach, charity, fundraising. My friends, this will be a milestone in canine history. What is it, you ask? I will tell you. A telethon!

Yes, like the great Jerry Lewis before me, I will be holding a telethon. What better way to raise the ministry's profile in France? Allah willing, there will be more exciting details to come.

Once again, you astound with your great brilliance

Thank you, TransplantedOkie. Sometimes I astound even myself.

Ayatollah,
Please let me know if you need entertainment for your telethon. I can donate you CC-man, my talking bird brother. Although annoying, he can be surprisingly entertaining. He can regale crowds with his thoughts on bathing and spaghetti.

I can't wait! Did you ever consider selling those wonderful "sucking" monkeys on the telethon? If you do a demo, it would be very compelling. Rabbi Jake

Just wondering if you need volunteers to man the phones during the telethon. I have two pups that I am willing to volunteer to assist at a moment's notice. They'll work for kibble!

I must look into this blogathon further, Pyrite.

T-Man, I am looking for entertainers. If CC-Man would like to audition, have him send me a message. This spaghetti talk intrigues me.

That is a possibility, Rabbi Jake. But I don't know if I can do that on camera. I cannot help but strike a pose when the camera comes out.

Thank you for volunteering, Eagle and Ranger. I will let you know if we need any more operators standing by.

I'm on the phone with Kanye West as we speak and he's willing to volunteer his services.

A telethon!!! Bro. Mugsy, where does your brilliance come from?

I might sit here and think about stuff for twenty years and never come up with the idea of a telethon. I'll bet your IQ is a big number.

Old Rosebud wants to be one of the entertainers. She used to be a striptease dancer at the BoomBoomRoom.

Ayatollah Mugsy said...

Excellent, Brody. I will pencil Mr. West onto the schedule.

The monkey foot doesn't hurt, J.B. I would love to have Old Rosebud perform, but perhaps she could do something a little more modest than she did at the BoomBoomRoom. Does she have a burqa?

James Beauregard daPug said...

Uh, no, Rosebud doesn't have a burqa - she has a faded old robe and some bunny slippers.

I see your point though - Rose does tend to get carried away. Her dancing might be inappropriate for your telethon. She can sing but the songs she ordinarily sings probably wouldn't be appropriate either - she does an imitation of Joe Cocker that would leave you speechless.
