Today I saw "The Book of Mormon" and it was fucking incredible. If you get a chance to see it on stage, do so! It was wonderfully funny and wickedly satirical. Of course I was supposed to have seen it with Kitty, but obviously that was not possible. Instead I invited furrysparkles who is one of my oldest friends here in ABQ. I figured he would appreciate the raw, vulgar humor, and I was correct! While the musical number of the subject line brought a huge smile to my face (it means "fuck you, God" in Uganda) the best moment was during another number where the lead character was on a doctor's examining table with a large blurry picture in the background. It took me a few seconds to realize it was supposed to be an xray of a rectum with a Book of Mormon shoved up it. The best part was hearing the laughter spread across the auditorium as people finally got the joke. I was going to post a link of a bootleg of the performance in Chicago, but it appears to have been taken down from YouTube. Oh well, there are many links to the musical portion if you want to hear the lyrics. Good times!
