A big fight broke out

at the Superbowl party. And it was all about this:

In case you missed it, Prince performed at halftime in the pouring rain, and we all agreed it was a great, great show. What kind of waterproof suit was he wearing? The marching band was awesome and it glowed in the dark! I don't care if he stole that idea from Gwen Stefani. Name me one musical performance that wouldn't be improved with the addition of a glow-in-the-dark marching band. See? You are unable.

So everything was going along great until the curtain went up and this unfortunate shadow came into existence. I still insist that the phallic display was an accident. Another in our group is pretty sure it was planned. Planned or accidental, two of us immediately saw a penis, one a devil's tail, and Gary saw a "really funny-looking guitar." He's so innocent.


  1. totally on purpose. he's prince. it's what he does.

    (and this is SO not a knock on prince. in my deepest heart of hearts, I am totally obsessed with prince.)

  2. I was partly amused, partly surprised at the shadowplay in light (ha ha) of the Janet/Justin incident. I'm surprised that the NFL (or whoever) would feel that the suggestion of a male election would be less provocative than a woman's bare chest. When I was 16 or 17 I went to a Prince concert where he made it look like he was doing it with someone behind a similarly lit up curtain. I was surprised then too, but more because of my youthful ignorance.

  3. Totally on purpose. Absolutely unnecessary. Who's in charge of the pre-game and half-time shows?!
