Ouch weblog: individual blog entry

18 Apr 06, 5:08 PM - Dwarf Kiss tribute band spat

Posted by Crippled Monkey

Heard the one about the rival KISS tribute bands both fronted by people of restricted growth? Well, check out these headlines: Rival all-dwarf KISS tribute bands not about to make up and KISS gets short shrift.

Joey Fatale, head of MiniKiss, denies he tried to get past security to confront Tim Loomis of Tiny Kiss at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last month, for allegedly ripping off his idea for a smaller tribute version of the glam rock band. I was about to write that it's not happy in their neck of the woods, but realised that this could be some kind of subconscious disablism kicking in after having been subject to years of "they're just like you and me but smaller" cutesy coverage in newspapers and TV.

It's got Monkey thinking about what other bands would work well two feet smaller. And here's where I end this entry.
