Feghooters (and our numerous groupies):
first installment of this on-line tutorial on the
fine art of the literary Feghoot, I have been
barraged (well, at least once) to clarify what
are NOT fine Feghoots. As exemplars are always
more helpful to artistic development than rules,
at the risk of wide social offence I am now
providing some atrocious examples. Note that most
are short, rather than being of the noble long
form I champion.
requires special note. Although I am unaware of
any other play attempting a Feghoot, this example
is downright distasteful, that alone being enough
reason to bring it to your attention. Perhaps
worse, I believe I detect cheap ridicule of the
USA Economic Recovery Act and Chrysler Motors,
maker of the Jeep. Simply outrageous, given the
service the Jeep rendered in WW-II.
Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck each opened wild animal
export companies in Australia. Bugs packed his
animals in wooden containers in which they were
comfortably housed on the airplane. A cheep-skate,
Daffy simply ball & chained his critters on
the deck of a freighter. Bugs' shipment arrived
safely, but Daffy's sank, as a Tasmanian Devil

A pig farmer had it with his wife's sharp temper

THE END (?)
not. Chrysler Motors, with substantial
help from the US tax-payer, is now
introducing the 2010 Jeep
"Budget Bugger". Yep,
Mr. & Mrs. America, when you hear "Jeep",
reach for the K-Y. One way or another,
you're get'n screwed.
Art Bupkis recently opened a comedy
dinner club. As waitresses he has hired
big-breasted, joke-telling transsexuals
and makes them wear skimpy outfits. Yes,
it's called "Fag-Hooters".
