Twenty % Tippers - Part 4

The Twenty%Tippers sent me another one of their stories in the mail. It's eight pages long, too long to tape up in a subway station or for me to transcribe here.

The title is "Man in a Diaper" and the premise is that the city of New York decides to provoke Islamic militants by seating a man in a diaper - one of the Twenty%Tippers is selected for the job - atop the Freedom Tower spire. The plan is based on a misinterpretation of an obscure passage in the Koran .

The Tipper's website has a collection of their previous stories and perhaps this one will be posted soon, or at least in time for the 7th anniversary of 9-11.

This is another leg in their campaign to give away their free CD. The Tippers are ahead of the major labels who still haven't gotten it through their heads that recorded music has become a free commodity. They might as well give songs away with six-packs of Coke, like when I was a kid and they would sometimes put a Bobby Sherman record on the back of a cereal box.
