A Public Apology To The Entire City of West Hollywood And All Sarah Palin Drag Queens
Look at me. My head is kind of bowed as I write this. Hard to make eye-contact with you.
Shamed, as it were…or was.
Yesterday I wrote a piece intimating that the real City of West Hollywood and its real mayor, Jeffery Prang, had called for a ban on real Sarah Palin drag queens/female impersonators.
But that was a lie. Balderdash. And in my mind…a satire.
At least it was meant to be a satire, meaning that it wasn’t true, but hopefully adorably witty. But in my rush to get the story out to the masses, I inadvertently forgot to make clear it was a joke. While connoisseurs of the art might assert that the blatant mention of satire as being satire diminishes the piece to the point of no longer being the intended satire, there is the thin chance that some might have taken it seriously enough to rattle the subjects of the piece.
Though it’s hard to find anything that West Hollywood wouldn’t allow, there are some in the media, as well as civilians, who took my piece seriously and inundated the web as well as West Hollywood City Hall with questions pertaining to the “ban.”
While Sarah Palin might consider a ban on gay marriages in West Hollywood, West Hollywood is not considering a likewise ban on Sarah Palin drag queens.
If I might mangle a joke from the esteemed Ms Elayne Boosler, West Hollywood will allow as many Sarah Palins with penises as can fit on Santa Monica Boulevard.
Sorry for the misunderstanding…who I believe just might be the queen of this year’s parade.
I will now leave this column to spend more time with my family..though I will return for the next column.
NOTE: This was not a satire! Really, it’s not. Neither was Orson Wells “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, but it wasn’t real. For those who think otherwise, you can now come out of your storm cellar.
