To borrow an expression, let’s get ready to rumble…
You guys are about to owe me. That’s right. Because I’m about to turn you on to the Extreme Micro Wrestling Federation‘s midget wrestling show tonight at the Granda in downtown Lawrence. You can thank me later.
In any case, I didn’t want you to miss it, since chances you’re bound to see stuff like "people 4’10” and under pummel each other with fists, various props, and Spandex," according to imposemagazine.com (why didn’t I think of that name?). "The entire event involves three one-on-one matches, a steel cage match involving several of the wrestlers, and then a surprise bonus at the end, which is promised to be ‘unlike anything you’ve seen before.’ This ends up being stripping midgets."
Fancy that. But before you guys go Craig Glazer, be advised it looks like all the midget strippers will be dudes. Can’t say for sure, but I couldn’t find any PR pix of chicks other than the full size ones.
I’ve got a dinner date tomo in T Town, so I’ll miss it. That said, I’d love to deputize you guys to go and report back. Long as you keep it PC, OK? "
In an interview with the Omaha World Herald last year Little Nasty Boy had this to say about the use of the "M" word:
"A little person is more derogatory. I’d say it’s more a personal preference. But if you look on the Internet, you’re not going to find much listed under ‘little person.’ Somehow you always do a midget or a dwarf."
The show goes down at 8:30 p.m. with tickets at just $10.
