Burlesque Meltdown?

posted by on August 18 at 12:59 PM

The following submissions were sent to I, Anonymous within minutes of each other, just minutes ago, from separate authors.

Submission 1:

You left our Burlesque Troupe because you knew we were getting rid of you. To save face you announced that you were instead leaving us behind. What you don’t realize is that nobody cares. You treat everyone like shit, and no one likes you. Your breathe stinks, your teeth are nasty, and you can’t dance. You are a diva with nothing to back it up. Keep living in poverty and chasing your dream of modeling (which is a joke). We are all laughing at you!

Submission 2:

You produce a local Burlesque Show, which although has been around for a while, lacks any form of growth. You think so highly of yourself but you are a joke and your shows aren’t selling like they used to. Performers don’t want to work with you because you have such a bad reputation. Karma is biting you in the ass, and we are all laughing at you!

Identical closing lines and weird capitalizations? I smell a sexy, saucy I, Anonymous letter-writing campaign…

I think I know who Anonymous #2 is talking about, that's the weird bit.

"Your breathe stinks" should permanently replace the more standard insult.

WTF is a "burlesque troupe"? Talk about small scale drama. It's like a fight going on between two flies on a pile of cowshit in the middle of a remote pasture in North Dakota.

I smell an attempt to preload I Anonymous ...

Amy Kate, we miss you!

We'd rather not moderate your comments, but off-topic, gratuitously inflammatory, threatening, or otherwise inappropriate remarks may be removed, and repeat offenders may be banned from commenting. We never censor comments based on ideology. Thanks to all who add to the conversation on Slog.

Do you think posts like #5 are part of some lame DOS attack on the Slog, or is there really a sad, pathetic bastard out there who has nothing better to do than post a redacted message on every single thread?

@6 - um. both.

They left out the part about burlesque being a circa-2004 hipster fad that the Bellevue and Belltown set keeps alive so they can feel cool and edgy.

@3: A trifle in a crystal bowl.
