Minimalist poem No. 1.2 + 3.4 – 5.6 ÷ 7.8 = 9.0 ?: A prop comic does his Vincent Van Gogh impression, which involves cutting off a prosthetic ear and throwing it into the audience as fake blood streams from his head, only this time, he mistakenly hacks off his real ear – but it’s O.K., because he had a bottle of rum, a case of beer and 10 Jose Cuervo shots and inhaled ether for 12 minutes before going onstage and the ear lands in a guy’s ice water, which the guy (who’s a surgeon) takes with him as he grabs the prop comic and whisks him from the corporate gig the prop comic is working to the nearest hospital, where he reattaches the ear and news about the incident leaks to the media, leading to fame for the two (until they’re forgotten two weeks later, when a drunken prop comic whose act revolves around remembering the 1990s has a mishap while doing his John Wayne Babbitt impression)
As witnessed by Ivan O’Uris
(And not inspired by “Reservoir Dogs” and/or “Seinfeld”)
