" Greetings Noblemen and Gentle Persons!
It Is With Great Modesty And Grace That I Cordially Present to You the Happenings of One Formal Banquet On The Afternoon Of The Seventeenth In The First Month Of Our Lord at The Prominent And Notable Cooperative House Of Vail in Ann Arbor Michigan.

These Dudes on This Most Honored Night Took the Liberty to Hold High Court for the Premiere of His Eyebrows to The World, a Most Awaited Event Prepared by The Esteemed Musical Provocateurs Joel-Joel Miller, Marco Frongillo Jr. and Zacharia Kolodziej, Renowned for Their Sensibility & Restraint and Ability to Regale Our Acute Senses with a Fair & Refined Concertos.
Oh and The Dudes Were Marry! So Marry was the Land, For the Dude and the Land, the People and the Dude are All One and The Same in the New Regime! And So the People Rejoiced in Pageantry and Celebration, Marking the Evening with High Praise, Joy, and Reverence.
Into the Wee Hours of the Night the People of Earth Performed Their Sacred Duties! And At Long Last the World Premiere of The His Eyebrows was Made True, and Whole, and Good.
All Praise Be To the Dude and Dude!

" Music video for Witch Hat's "Your Dog Ate Rat Poison" from their record "Brown In A Dog." The video was inspired by a community theater production of Steel Magnolias performed in Lake Worth, Florida. This re-enactment holds true to the original production's confinement of the story within the salon, with a nod to the 1989 film in the credits."
