PA High School Principal Cancels 'Spamalot' After Gay Wedding Turns Him Into A Newt

News

Moral scolds in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, have triumphed over the linked evils of the Homosexual Agenda and Musical Theater, cancelling a student production of Monty Python's Spamalot that had been planned for Spring 2015. Parents complained that the play's material -- based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail -- was inappropriate for students at the combined junior-senior high school because it included a same-sex wedding scene, but if any comedy is more purely adolescent than that of Monty Python, we don't want to know what it is.


Drama department director Dawn Burch said that she was informed of the decision to say Ni! to the production by an email from Principal Jesse Smith, who explained that conservative communities like South Williamsport simply do not have any homosexuals anyway, and certainly not any who are legally allowed to marry. From this, and from his insistence that his favorite colour is "blue... no, yellow!" we can only conclude that Principal Smith is quite simply a HUGE ... tract of land.

Schools superintendent Mark Stamm didn't reply directly to a question from ThinkProgress about Smith's assertion, but did say that since the drama classes include students in grades 7 through 12,

"We want our performances to be appropriate for the student performers and audiences so that anyone participating or watching can enjoy all aspects of the show.”

And heaven knows, any play featuring an effeminate prince who'd rather sing than get married is clearly inappropriate for South Williamsport. Sadly, rights to the musical adaptation of Triumph of the Will appear to have expired.

Students at the high school told a local TV news station that they actually knew gay people, but you know how young folks make stuff up just to get attention. They're also prone to acting out, and to rattling off dialogue from Monty Python routines, so it's probably just as well that the play has been canceled. The less these innocent young folks in this gay-free town hear about Teh Ghey, the less risk that they will become gay, and so they can indulge their affinity for musical theater without causing their parents any discomfort.

You know, this whole ridiculous situation would make for a pretty good play. We don't want to write dick jokes on a blog anymore! We want to write for the theatre! Or be a LUMBERJACK! We feel a song coming on...

Corey Stewart, the Minnesota transplant to Virginia who's made protecting "Confederate Heritage" a top issue in his campaign for the US Senate, accused a nosy New York Times reporter of breaking into the apartment of one of his aides. It's a terrific accusation, because while there's no evidence at all and the story makes no damn sense, that doesn't matter at all to people who'd vote for Corey Stewart. They already hate the evil media and know those nasty reporters are capable of all the depravity in the world.

Hey, remember that hilarious time when Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy got caught on tape joking that LOL, Donald Trump and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher were totally on Putin's payroll? WaPo got the goods:

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

It's funny 'cause it's true! ALLEGEDLY. Earlier this month, Congressman Lubyanka Rohrabacher told Fox reporter Elex Michaelson that DNC hack was obviously an inside job.
