Where Glenn Hunter weighed in with an “Onion-esque” spoof.
Here’s another silly spoof from Jimmy Fowler at “Fort Worth Weekly.” What? It’s not meant to be? Seriously? I guess I’ll have to take your word for it. Portions of it read like dialogue written for Margaret Dumont from the Marx Brothers’ “A Night at the Opera.”
In any event -- get ‘em while they’re hot! Here’s one more link to the reserved seats page.
I sincerely hope we’ll see you there, with the entire extended family.
