And you thought Portland was weird!

Just look what goes on in Seattle. A burlesque tribute to Weird Al?

We just returned from a trip to the great Northwest, and we’ll be getting, however reluctantly, to some of the shocking, dark underbelly truths that are hiding in that prosperous, liberal, white enclave.

Hiding behind accordions of all places? Well, who ever knew the Weird Al had such a “nice rack?”

And then there’s Lady Satan, Mistress Marla Spankx. And what to make of Pickles Kintaro?

Steve Riley

He wears his accordion low–like a gunslinger.

And we saw him last week, right up here in upstate New York! A miraculous apparition.

So join us tonight for a full report and a little Stevefest, Mamoufest and Playboyfest.

Elvis and his ilk? Big accordions? Latter day pirates?

Don’t worry, we’ll squeeze them all in tonight on In Heaven There Is No Beer. Not only that, we’ll be taking a listen to the songs that pirates and drunken sailors love to sing, second only to their endless paeans to whiskey, rum, and grog. Songs about their women! But be forewarned, these women, for the most part, are not the kind you take home to mother.

The Sallys and the Serafinas! The Rosyannas! We salute them all.

Aaarrrggg!

Nautical fun for the whole family! Ahoy!

We love sailor songs! Sea shanties, pirate ballads! But they’re so filthy.

Either they reflect the lax morals or despicable personal habits and hygiene of those involved.

Tonight on In Heaven There Is No Beer, join us for some good, clean, sailorly fun. No bleeding gums, no scurvy, no below-decks hanky-panky, no whores!
