I love viewer feedback

I love getting feedback!

"FYI - my kid was hanging out after work the other night at the restaurant where he is a busboy on Columbus Ave.He was with his barfly grandmother who is about 83, some of her friends and some friends his own age. He had on his Kill and Eat the Rich shirt. When asked about it, he told the fable Dennis Trainor Jr [performed] which I showed him when I gave him the shirt.

The Fable and the Shirt were very well received.

So, it may not play in Peoria at the moment, but Kill and Eat the Rich is working on the Upper West Side of NYC.

I'll keep you posted.

The shirt she's talking about: click here

And the fable I wrote:

They told us when they took our jobs overseas, "No hard feelings. It's just business, you know?"
They told us when they destroyed our 401ks through gambling with our money, "No hard feelings. It's just business, you know?"
They told us when we fell behind on our mortgage and foreclosed on our house, kicking us to the street, "No hard feelings. It's just business, you know?"
As more and more people were forced on welfare, the government's budget started to look grim. When they cut welfare spending entirely so that they could enjoy bigger tax cuts to "stimulate the economy," they told us, "No hard feelings. It's just business, you know?"

Then the poor had nothing left to eat, and no place to go. So they had to kill and eat the rich.

They descended on Wall Street by the millions, stopping all traffic.
Their numbers were so large, the police couldn't do anything to stop the massive crowd of the disenfranchised. They flooded the buildings of Wall Street, the halls of DC, of the McMansions of Texas, and like a horde of zombies, they tore into the flesh of the horrified wealthy, who screamed and shat themselves, knowing that they were powerless to stop the oncoming mass of gnashing teeth and hungry mouths.

And as the poor picked the bones clean over the burning piles of money, the poor said to the bones:

"No hard feelings. It's just business, you know?"
