Special Teams Donkey September 24, 2014

Posted by Sobek in News.

And now, a special Innocent Bystanders Presentation:

Special Teams Donkey

A short drama, by Sobek

Dramatis Personae:

Coach – a coach

The Quarterback – a quarterback

Act I, Scene i

Coach: (rising dramatically from his chair) I’ve got it! There’s nothing in the rule book that says you can’t have a donkey for a field goal kicker!

The Quarterback: Yes there is.  It’s right here on page 26.

Coach: Shit.

Important note: both characters speak with 1950s radio news-reader accents.

Somehow this smells like a slam against the Denver Broncos.

Since you brought up football…the concern about offending native americans because of the team in Washington got me to wondering.
Can we change the name to just the “skins”?

Maybe even the “foreskins”? I think I like the latter because it better reflects all the dickheads in Washington D.C.

How many Disney writers are you trying to send to the soup lines? There’s surely a “Gus 3-D” (“You’ll think he’s going to kick you in the face!) in the works.

They should change it to ‘Red Devils,’ in tribute to the so-named parachuters of the Indian Army.

The sequel is about using a horse as a center, and the quarterback has since developed an addiction to oxycodone, but otherwise it’s exactly the same.

So… is there a good Nun and a Bad Nun in this one?

So the QB is deaf then?

Gay. Gotta be a gay donkey.

I remember seeing Gus in the theater.

Can we change the name to just the “skins”?

Just change the logo, done.
