The Internet is for Porn! Avenue Q closes on Broadway

"Why you think the 'net was born? Porn, porn, porn!"

Wiser words were never spoken.

And so I was saddened today to learn that Avenue Q will be closing on Broadway in September after 2,534 performances. I went to one of them, and laughed so friggin' hard, I had tears streaming down my face for most of the show.

Essentially an R-rated Sesame Street - and a musical for people who aren't into musicals - Avenue Q asked the question, "What do you do with a B.A. in English?," and somehow answered it with live puppet sex, so acrobatic and graphic that it would make Team America: World Police blush.

In the big finale of the show, the lesson for everyone is to take heart, because everything is "only for now," including life, love, work, and George W. Bush. I feel better already.

And with that I give you: the Internet is For Porn - shakily recorded and illegally distributed; just the way Avenue Q would want it.
