Rockin' For A Cause- Part I



Today's Wacky Wednesday is actually a two parter, and I'm going to poke fun at my husband and I. Hey, if you can't laugh at yourself, you are probably a pompous asshole, and I ain't got no room for those types in my life. Part I will be devoted to my hubby, or Uncle Jeffy, as he most affectionately calls himself after a few Gentlemen Jacks on the rocks.

For the past five years or so, my hubby and I have been involved in a benefit show for a local charity called The Carousel Center. The Center treats victims of child abuse and does amazing work for our community. I'm proud to say that I was a founding board member of this non-profit many moons ago. Anyway, every year, the Center holds a gala, which is their largest fundraiser of the year. Regular folks get on stage at our local theater dressed like famous rock stars or musicians and lip sync songs. It is a total drunk fest for the performers, but it raises a ton of money for the Center. This year's show will be held on St. Patrick's Day and we are busy preparing our acts.

There's a photo of Uncle Jeffy and the boys from AC/DC a couple of years ago. Isn't my guy a dead ringer for Angus Young???? Lemme tell ya, he puts some serious time into getting his costume just right!!!! He searched all over town for that emblem to sew onto his jacket. Oh and he had Angus' little kick step down pat!!!!

And there is Uncle Jeffy last year as Axl Rose himself from Guns N' Roses. Uncle Jeffy practiced Axl's hip sway in front of the bathroom mirror for weeks, and I was banned from my own bathroom while "Welcome To The Jungle" blared at full blast. Whew, if I ever hear that song again it will be too damn soon!!!! How about Slash? He was a dead ringer baby!!!!

If you want to laugh your ass off take a gander at Uncle Jeffy and his band performing Guns N' Roses last year. You hear the crowd goin' wild?????? You betcha baby!!!!!! The alcohol is flowin' and this is some entertainment not to be missed!!!!!

So next weekend Uncle Jeffy will be parodying Dee Snider from Twisted Sister. Can you tell the guy likes some heavy metal? His costume this year has been the funniest and most outrageous. First and foremost he is wearing girl pants. YES, GIRL PANTS!!!!!! He went to the mall to find an appropriate pair of pleather pants, but in our little southern town, there's not much of a market for those, so he struck out. My advice to him was to go into the teeny bopper stores and try on girl pants. Wouldn't ya know it, he struck gold!!! He tried on the largest size they had, which was a size 11, but they were a tad too tight on the family jewels. How many of you dudes out there would actually go into a dressing room and try on a pair of girl pants, even if it was all in the name of charity?????? Believe me, I have a whole new respect for the guy!!!!!

The sales clerk ordered him a pair of size 13's and 15's so he could try them on at home. Who knew, but my man is a perfect size 13. Now these pants really rock!!! They have skulls down one side and are pleather down the other. When he was trying them on at home, our 11 year old said, "Uh, this has to be the weirdest day of my life". "My Dad is going to wear girl pants".

Check it out. When he gets his blue and red makeup on he is gonna kill it on stage with some "We're Not Gonna Take It"!!!!!! Girl pants or not, Uncle Jeffy has transformed from plastic surgeon by day into bonafide rock star by night!!!!!!
