Iran had to go and release the sailors, didn’t they? I mean, I’m glad they did; but they couldn’t have waited just two more days? Just until Sunday morning? Even Saturday morning would have been fine, just so I could see the sketch performed at The Treason Show on Friday.
But no, selfish bastards.
Apparently no one considered my feelings on the matter. It appears I have less impact on world politics than I previously believed.
This is one of the problems of writing topical satire, the stories change, resolve or, in some cases, just completely disappear. I scribbled a new ending down and sent it in, but I don’t like it nearly as much.
I was going to post a follow up, analysing where the sketch got laughs (if at all) and where it fell flat, but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see whether or not it gets performed now.
I’ve been telling people ‘the leaders of the world are conspiring against me’ for years, but did anyone listen? Well there’s your proof. I bet all those ‘so called’ psychiatrists are feeling pretty stupid now, huh?
