Order in the comments, everybody. We were in Mabie again, but we think we'll be back in Theatre B soon.

1. The Upper Hand-Job by Penny

Upper-class British people engage in a very polite handjob.

2. Metagaming by Asher Stuhlman

You should have picked the intelligence perk instead of the cheesecake.

3. More Conversations with Delroy Ban Voogernutt by Resident of Wyoming

Delroy has to take out an amorous Furby, gets his niece instead.

4. Coworkers by Katy Baggs

Morgan asks out a coworker for a civil acquaintance date.

5. Remember Remember the Sixth of November by Eric Jesteadt

A previous piece comes back. About the 21-only ordinance, and also about V for Vendetta sort of.

6. Keep It In Your News by Derrark VanSmerYillan

A guy gets interviewed about his underage bar marriage to a zombie.

7. Among Stars and Liars by Seth Mussmann

Seth plays a song on the guitar. Someone presses their lips on broken glass.

8. Guidance Counseling by Evan Schenck

You don't need any damn college when the world ends. You just need to be the toughest motherfucker around.

9. Friday Night Tales with Mark by Mark Smolyar

Mark tells the totally true story about being a rap pioneer who goes on to work in children's television and emerges the victor in a rap battle.

11. Fuck It, We'll Do It Live!

Alaynna and Nick(?) improv a scene about (1) a pimp and prostitute, (2) doctors, and (3), Disney World. It's mostly about 1 and 3.

1. I feel like I've been desensitized to this type of piece after being at No Shame for just a year and a half. Either that, or this appeared better on paper than it did in performance. I think it's just become an everyday event here.

2. I wrote this, so I don't have any impartial comments on it.

3. I love Bryan's monologues. And overly sexualized Furbies.

4. This was very well-done. I get the feeling that this was autobiographical; was it?

5. I wasn't feeling it. The comparison felt forced. The part about blowing up the Summit was gold, though.

6. The use of the handkerchiefs to indicate human v. zombie was very clever.

7. I recall enjoying this but I didn't make out enough of the lyrics to know what it was about.

8. There is something very awesome about this piece that I can't exactly pin down. It was very sincere.

9. Because I knew a bit about the history of rap, I had a harder time than usual suspending my disbelief here. I still love the series several times over!

10. This song was just a vehicle for its chorus, but there's nothing wrong with that.

best of: 8, 10

Maybe you wouldn't be desensitized if you weren't addicted to internet pornography! Admit it, you're porno junkies! All of you!
