And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #34

by

Coming up tonight on Sux TV:

The season premiere of everyone's favorite game show Gender Confusion!

Join host Herma Frodite as she... I mean he... I mean they try to fool this week's contestants.

Is that burly voice coming from behind door number one a man's or a woman's?

Is that shapely leg sticking out from behind curtain number two attached to a woman's body... or a man's?

Make it to the final round and you'll go head-to-head against everyone's favorite gender fluid geriatric: Granny Tranny!

All that and more tonight on the season premiere of Gender Confusion!

    I was going to say the grand prize was a weekend on the island of Lesbos with Caitlyn Jenner but I ran out of words. I just wanted to make sure I covered my bases and pissed everyone off.

    People are so touchy these days. I think soon there's going to be a backlash and comedy will get back to actually being comedy and not some watered down crap designed to not offend any social justice warriors.

    Good on yer, Christopher! I told Drew how shocked I was when a woman who was apparently one of my social media contacts had a work anniversary. Trouble was, I only knew a bloke with that surname! The times they are a-changing!

    Btw, if you want something generally offensive (but brilliant), check out the wonderful Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag series,which I think might be on Amazon Prime. She is only 33 and is amazing, having written and starred in the UK ‘Crashing’ (not the HBO one) - also on Prime, and having written the stunning BBC America ‘Killing Eve’. And only 33. Wow!

    Cool. I have Amazon Prime. I'll check it out.

    Yeah, none of this stuff is meant to be hurtful, whether you agree with those lifestyles or not. But we used to be able to poke fun at things without being called intolerant Nazis.

    Herma Frodite, haha love it! And Granny Tranny, probably not the prettiest sight in the world, but the best name ever :)
    The closest I come to this is a gay guy I know who's a cross-dresser and who does the occasional burlesque dame show. But he certainly wouldn't be offended by any of this and would laugh along with it, which imho is the best thing :)
    Another great Sponsor drabble Christopher :)

    Thanks, Drew. I'm looking forward to getting into your current series, I just ran out of time last weekend. I'm so behind on here it's going to take a while to catch up.

    I hope you enjoy it Christopher, though I should warn you, as Neville correctly described it, it's a bit "bleak".
