They made a mate for Puppet Mark!

n205623552706_7049It’s just been brought to my attention that the wonderful folks at the Dreamland Theater have taken it upon themselves to create a female companion for Puppet Mark. Her name, I’m told, is Syrah Praylin, and she’s going to be starring in their next production, “Muerta Goes to Space Prison.”

Here’s how the production, which will start at 7:00 PM on Saturday, December 19th, has been explained to me…

The year is 2013. Syrah Praylin is president. Female daytime TV hosts are banished into space. Muerta Spewart is forced to do her show from a HD space prison. She tries in these poor conditions to prepare for her Holy Day Special. The plot twists into a chaotic tornado of magic, rainbows, glitter, mythic creatures, and even the bathroom sink. Your mind will continue swirl even as the credits roll. This whole ticking package is gift wrapped with a soundtrack by Charlie Slick that includes Elvis and Bee Gees covers. And, it’ll be presented with classic video: “Fanta & Tammy.”

Oh, and I’m also told that it’s not for kids… and that you’ll be asked to pay $10.

And, yeah, I was kind of kidding earlier when I implied the Palin puppet was made specifically for the sexual gratification of my puppet, like Eve was made for Adam. I’m sure that wasn’t the intention. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m the only one that saw the Palin puppet, and immediately imagined my puppet cozying up to it in a Snuggie made for two. Does that make me sick? It’s not like I personally want to make love to Sarah Palin… the woman or the puppet. I just think it would be neat if our puppets could be near one another at night, when all the puppeteers shut out the lights and go home.

Seriously, though… Now that they’ve got a Sarah Palin puppet and a Mark Maynard puppet, I don’t think we have any choice but to start a TV show. And I’m damned serious about this. I want to have a show where my puppet, sprawled across a couch, smoking cigarettes like Tom Snyder, interviews celebrities. The Palin puppet could sit in the audience and heckle, or something… It would put Ypsi on the map, like a terrorist attack.

    I think it would be sexy to see your puppets fight.

    A PG puppet version of Larry Flynt’s masterpiece “Nailin’ Palin.” You could use all the same dialogue, and just edit out the nasty bits. Whenever there’s a sex scene, you could jut get into the snuggie together and take a nap.

    And if she dressed like that, I totally would have voted for her.

    “Here’s a little news flash for your Department of Media: Syrah Praylin parents chose life and she was adopted in small-town USA by real Americans who run our factories, harvest our meat-bearing animals, and wave Old Glory down at the courthouse and the churches, not in Washington D.C. by cynical power-brokers and liberal puppet-makers.”

    They need to make a Nancy Reagan doll… A puppet needs a little variety.

    Her outfit looks a lot like a tattered blogging leotard….

    Praylin is defenitely the most vixen puppet ever seen. The mix of hot librarian and Sheena the Jungle Woman is a lethal combo. Perhaps I WILL introduce the two of you on Saturday.

    I’ve been talking with both Logan and Ted Televite about doing some kind of talk show at Dreamland. Logan’s idea was to interview local celebrities, and Ted was thinking about using our combined celebrity puppets – he has Kid Rock, Iggy and Gene Simons, and I’ve got Micheal Jackson, Britney Spears, Mos Def, and now MM and Praylin. …There is a lot of potential there. Mark, do you want to be the interviewer for the first show?

    Dreamland should make Tiger and Elin Woods puppets and do a regular Punch and Judy show where Elin continiously beats Tiger senseless with a golf club.
