“The Glory Bugles” show up to make you laugh in this unique and fun-filled comedy. They spin their charm with anecdotes, puns, and songs. Queenie, Beulah, Farley and Harley give it their all in this series of skits which take place in, of all places, Box Springs, Tennessee.
The humor includes learning that “Ph.D.” stands for “pig and hog” doctor, a TV weather report that features the news lady checking outside before she gives her report, a road and pothole report on the news, and the report of a single, elderly woman who died and had all female pallbearers because “no man took her out while she was alive and she wasn’t going to have a man take her out after she was gone.” Various skits include one about Elvis.
The songs are spoofs, including one about how it’s a sin if your hair’s too long, and one about the cock-a-doodle-doo of Peter’s rooster. The puns include one about the gynecology of the Bible (instead of genealogy) and a pastor who will “retaliate” if you say hello to him, instead of that he will “reciprocate.” A woman caller on TV mentions her “asteroids” problem. There is also a discussion about Charlton Heston’s movies including “Ben-Hur” and “Planet of the Apes,” and a female says it is great to see a shirtless Heston with chains on. There are a few innuendos, but the intent is to have fun and make a little fun of certain situations like long-winded preachers. There is also a King Jimmy’s Bible store where if you show up using the words “thee,” “thou” or “thine” in a sentence, you get a 10 percent discount. There is a King Jimmy bobble head also displayed.
We are awarding this comedy our Dove Family-Approved Seal for ages twelve plus, because a lot of the humor is geared to older children and adults. Pull up a chair next to your TV and listen and watch for a spell.
