“I just think it’s hogwash…”

There follows some excerpts from my latest play (a comedy) entitled “A warmongering, hypocritical, satanic, ameriKKKan-sKKKum-phuquer being asked questions by a rubbish journalist, obviously wetting himself in fear

Watermelon: What if the Senate passes a resolution saying, this is not a good idea. Will that stop you?

Cantaloupe: It won’t stop us…

Watermelon: So, you’re moving forward, no matter what the Congress does?

Cantaloupe: We are moving forward. We are moving forward…

Cantaloupe: I’m delighted — I’m delighted I’m about to have a sixth grandchild, Watermelon. And obviously I think the world of both my daughters and all of my grandchildren. And I think, frankly, you’re out of line with that question.

Watermelon: I think all of us appreciate…

Cantaloupe: I think you’re out of line.

Watermelon: …your daughters. No, we like your daughters. Believe me, I’m very, very sympathetic to Date and to Plum. I like them both. That was just a question that’s come up, and it’s a responsible, fair question.

Cantaloupe: I just fundamentally disagree with you.

Watermelon: I want to congratulate you on having another grandchild.

As you can see it’s about a dirty, disgusting, greedy, grasping capitalist. It’s set during an interview with an all-too-typically rubbish journalist. In answering the questions put to him, our hero demonstrates he is blithely unconcerned about everything including, amongst other things, public opinion, the Senate, compassion for humanity. Of course our hero is a caricature, and the play is a farce.

The pharaoh has spoken…
