Who's that Girl? On AIDS
Full color newsprint with glossy covers.
DEALT WITH: AIDS, Stds, lifestyle, etc
out one night only at a 1987 Madonna concert in Madison Square
Here is the first draft of Madonna's introductory note:
to the printed final piece
compiled from Haloscan comments and email:
like your solution with the cover illustration for this issue.
It says to me: "Have a little AIDS? Why not just sprinkle
a little Madonna on it, that should cure it!"

Hey Fabulous - Thanks. Yes that's true - there is little
in this world that can not be solved by sprinkling a little
Madonna on it.
She puts the holla' in kabbalah - Ethan]
many people do you think read this AIDS comic at the Madonna
concert? I'm sure one of these copies ended up as a target
in the urinal.

- about that cover
.....If Madonna covered me in a costume like that I wouldn't
be hungry for eggs and bacon either. No matter how much she
stared at me.
ten points for the head mic.

that almost all the magazines listed
on the back as sponsors of this comic virtually
ignored AIDS as a disease when it first showed up.

wonder if Madonna will give this comic to her newly adopted/purchased
African Black Boy Baby.

want to comment on COMICS WITH PROBLEMS #4
but the comments are closed there so I'm posting something here
which seems like the most similar issue.
Anyway what I wanted to say is, as awful and pun-laden as that
book is, they inexcusably missed an GOLDEN opportunity to be
even more awful with the title. Instead of "VD CLAPTRAP:
FIRST TRIP TO VENUS" they should have called it "FIRST
TRIP TO URANUS"
Thank you I'm here all week!

it inappropriate to mention that when I see the announcer guy
on stage I can think only of the blowjob from Police Academy,
with the hooker hidden in the podium?

IN THE NEWSFILTER:
A theatre in Florida had to change the title of a charity production
of The Vagina Monologues on its marquee, after a woman complained
that it was offensive. They decided on 'The Hoohaa Monologues'.
Atlantic Theatres in Atlantic Beach, Florida, received a complaint
from a woman who'd seen the advertised title as she drove past
with her niece. She said that it had made her niece ask her
what a vagina was. The theatre's Bryce Pfanenstiel commented:
'I'm on the phone and asked “What did you tell her?”
She's like, “I'm offended I had to answer the question.”'

THANK YOU FOR THIS IMPORTANT NEWSPOSTING.
Still, though, I'm not resolved. I personally find the word
'monologues' much more offensive than the other one that rhymes
with angina. I know what angina is so any word that rhymes with
it is A-OKAY with ME. Pat Robertson has angina, a beautiful
But Monologues ... I mean what does that mean? Mono? and LOGUES?
What if my daughter asks me what a LOGUE is??? Is that something
I'd have to squat down over a handheld mirror to see?? YOU ARE
NOT GETTING ME TO DO THAT YOU FILTHY RAPING PEREVRT! I know
there are cameras in the handheld mirrors. I know this! Personally
I've never had mono -- BUT I KNOW WHAT IT IS!! It's the KISSING
DISEASE - fucking filthy tongues and lips, is what! But I have
never seen my Logue, and .... well I'm too disgusted right now
to continue, really. Just know that I'm disgusted about this
word monologue, and if I ever see it on a marquee know that
my Senator is getting a PRETTY FUCKING TERSE LETTER ABOUT IT.
I think a perfect re-titling would be the Hoohaw Talkies. That's
nice. Or how about the Hoohaw Heehaws. Yes, that makes me much
happier. Like the olden times.
I like olden times. They're like shiny candy without all that
grit. I'm smiling now.

I for one am glad I read this publication. It turns out that
I can have casual sex with all of the doctors, dentists, hairdressers,
and barbers I want, because "there is no record of anyone
getting AIDS from" anyone in these professions.
Thank you, Madonna.
That one guy | 03.17.07 - 9:24 pm | #
1, Page 17 amuses me for a number of reasons.
1) "It Won't Happen to Me!" - Note he's got a bit
of a boner while he's saying that. Risktaker. Sadist. Fool!
2) "Boy is He Wrong" - This friend sounds confidently
informed of something - Could it be that it's because he
has AIDS and is in the process of casually fucking his friend
in the rear!?? Directly in public, in front of a reporter.
3) Comments 1 and 2 make the video camera suddenly very snuff-seeming.
And note the peeping tom in the back enjoying the show.
