Honky Tonkitis

Here's where you talk to the band


With tension mounting and time running out, local musical group Honky Tonkitis made the announcement today that they were setting their own ultimatum over the looming Fiscal Cliff.

"We've got to put the hammer down on this thing. Our representatives are twiddling their thumbs while we rev up the economic four by four's of this great country in an effort to fly off this fiscal cliff with the nitro burning funny car at max. The only thing is: this time it ain't funny," guitarist Bruce Dean stated.

"They're taking us into an economic territory that could lead to our downfall," fiddle player Tom Hansen added, "all we're saying is, you don't want to go there. Don't force us to do something you would regret."

"Tonight's gonna be one big kiss-off for this country," accordionist Don Turner announced, "But I'm only reading this off a piece of paper. This sounds awesome for me. Ladies, moisten those lips and line up in front of the Don!"

"Frankly, I don't care what happens," drummer Kurt Weber muttered, "More cheap drum sets for me."

"Whatever the case," Maplewood concluded, "If Congress does not work to avert this fiscal cliff, we'll have nothing left to do but respond with Jazz Oddessey. And no one wants to see that."
