Planted Firmly In Cheek
Thursday night found me at the Ultra Suede Lounge to see Varla Jean Merman -- the alleged lovechild of Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine -- perform her new show "Varla Jean Merman Loves a Foreign Tongue."
VJM recounts her many travels overseas and the important lessons she's learned -- such as how to say "this sore is not contagious" in 8 different languages.
In the photo above VJM plays the ukulele while singing an ode to her hometown, New Orleans.
It's an absolutely hilarious show with VJM's wit on full display.
