Something Wrong with Strippin?

So many, many people ask me "mrpeenee, what is your favorite big muscial about a psychotic mother pimping her daughter out into a life of quasi-prostitution?" I laugh tinklingly and reply "Oh, that would be Gypsy."

Take it away Miss Mazeppa:

Once I was a schleppah....


  1. Oh.... I thought you were talking about the Kardashhounds....

  2. "...But I do it with a horn!!!" Fabulous! Jx

  3. Gypsy had some talent, or at least personality whereas those kardashounds have neither.

  10. I always enjoyed "Pretty Baby" with Brooke and Susan.

    Oh wait that's not a musical.

    My routine used to be climbing the pole, hanging upside down then lighting the birthday candles attached to my nipples. Then a couple back handsprings ending with a splits and a leg on each side of your face with my cooter in the middle.

    It was always worth a quick two bits.

    Gotta have a gimmick.
