Writers' Showcase

Presents
by Rick Tornello

A skit for his Majesty’s next TV appearance:

deep voice cuts into the entire broadcasts nation wide.

“We interrupt this program with an important national announcement.

“AND NOW, live, FROM THE WHITE HOUSE and the US NAVY BAND”….

It opens with a chorus line from Cabaret and the president lip sinking:

"Money makes the world go round the world go round, the world go round".

Then with all his usual back up staged bobble headed people behind the podium:

Every day’s a TV sound, a TV sound, A TV sound. Just a death or two won't mind or three won’t mind. I'm the president so great’s my mind, great’s my mind.

“We've insured a baby boom, a baby boom, and all the oldies will be gone real soon, be gone real soon. No more issues with Social Security doom, with Social Security doom."

He bows.

With a smile he adds, “Just remember, come this November, I took no responsibility at all. It wasn’t me that caused these people to die and care less for you than for I.”

"YOU WILL APPLAUSE SIGN” appears off screen but the camera happened to slip.

Audience in the press seats behind him claps and nods approval; his bobble heads dance their way off stage smile.
