Top girl band the Bonkettes today announced that they are contracted to perform a series of shows at the Moorview Institute here in Springfield Illinois after a post Christmas hiatus brought about by contractual wrangles, sex scandals, rehab sessions, and in-fighting between band members and management.
Addressing a packed press conference in Madison Square Garden, New York, band manager BT Bishop - flanked by twin singers BJ Spit and BJ Swallow said:
"There's no doubt in my mind that Springfield, Illinois will shortly become the centre of the known universe as the tales from the Springfield Institute, as featured in satirical website theSpoof.com's magazine section, become the focal point of life as we know it."
"This is one trip we can't afford to miss out on," BJ Swallow told us. "We'll be playing a series of shows at the Springfield Institute in order for the band to attract maximum publicity and enhance our reputation as the world's hottest chick band."
"Erm, and to honour the writers of the Moorview saga of course," BT Bishop interrupted, it must be said, a little awkwardly. "This isn't about the Bonkettes, it's about the rise and rise of Springfield and the global brand that Moorview has so rapidly become..."
"I thought it was about us, the Bonkettes..." BJ Spit blurted.
"Oh," BJ Swallow added, nodding. "I see. Yeah right. Not about the Bonkettes. Not at all. It's about the Moorview saga, and the rise to prominence of the city of Springfield."
"As endorsed by the Bonkettes," BJ Swallow said, in closing.
More Moorview madness as we get it.
