Time running out for Liberace fans
~Editilla Pianellas~OOH Ooh! Let's get'em to move the Liberace Museum to New Orleans! What a no-brainer. Do we not celebrate and care so for our Kings and Queens of Music? Of course we do. And we know Liberace wasn't no freak show costume mannequin neither! Maybe Chis Owens could pardner up? I'm in! "Libby" so loved New Orleans. And it is because of Saint Lib that all musicians can claim all of their tools on Income Tax Deductions!
Of course, you say, Ha, you say. He had all this bling, some say. Well he also had a touring crew, Steinways, full orchestra... but hey, axe Harry Connick or Dr John or anyone who rolls the bone at that level. Every dime counts.
Anyway, everyone will want to come'see come'see Liberace!
~~BREAKING from Broke Back Candy Mountain!~~
~The newly formed philanthropic group, Bring Liberace To New Olreans BLTNO has just received the staunch and aggressive backing, ahem, of the APP ---American Pie Party- 'E Pluribus Piem'.
"We believe in Just Desserts. And so did Saint Liberace,"
said Chief Ninja Pie Thrower Fartsworth P Iems. "Libby, as we so affectionately refer to His Pianess, was a Patriot Missile for Musicians against the IRS ---and the indisputable Queen of Showman everywhere --especially in New Orleans!"
