Turkeys on Broadway

It’s a special Thanksgiving season broadcast of HWX, with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe, the Nihilist in Golfpants convening to give thanks for our many blessings. Topic discussions include:

* Holiday day time drinking suggestions, featuring the Brutal Mimosa and the Ramos Gin Fizz.

* Our personal histories of being subjected to on stage liberal polemics.

* Our responses to Ricochet members comments from the last HWX episode, including a special statement to our critics.

* Exclusive excerpts of the musical Hamilton. Just what is the fuss all about? We’ll find out, with the musical’s thrilling depictions of the debate over the National Bank and the feud that led to the duel between Hamilton and Aaron Burr.

* Exclusive preview of next season’s Broadway smash, Trump! The Musical!

All member feedback welcome in the comments section. Hope you enjoy.

    Good fun, I was LOL also but luckily I was alone. Although the proper blessing for Ellison involves Allah.

    You guys bring juvenile comedy into the realm of us middle-aged folks who really need it. Always, always a pleasure.

    Great numbers this week. Not sure they top “Necrophillia and Sons”, but then I have a pretty twisted sense of humor.

    I believe you two gentlemen to be fairly good examples of tough, sensible upper mid-western citizens.

    Is whiskey so often in your coffee that it does not constitute drinking in the morning?

    Don’t get me wrong, the mimosa recipe was quintessential sensible upper mid-western…

    They definitely top Necrophilia and Sons.

    When Trump! the Musical! sweeps next year’s Tony’s you’ll be on the giving end the weird looks, Kim.

    Thanks Podkayne. Much like it takes high intelligence to play stupid, the depth of the maturity needed to deliver juvenile comedy is unfathomable. (insert flatulence joke here)

    I’m getting the sense there’s groundswell of support for a Necrophilia and Sons Christmas special.

    A groundswell, already! Sounds like trouble’s a-brewin’ with your septic tank, Brian!
