The personal notes of Shadrack, Meshack and Obendago written for stage in four acts.
SCENE I. SHADRACK, MESHACK AND OBENDAGO IN TROUBLE.
Shadrack: I've got a really bad feeling about today boys, I don't know what it is.
Meshack: What could possibly happen? Everybody is talking to us, the MSM is licking our sacks, we are totally set bra. What say you Obendago?
Obendago: My name is Obed-Nago. Get it right.
Meshack: Whatever dicknose. Hey somebody call room service for more beer!
Shadrack: Oh man I got a really seriously bad feeling about this.
Meshack: Bro with the Lord on our side and a couple of these trusty salve girls and have you tried room service yet? Seriously, these guys can make a burger. This king thinks he's a badass? Let's just see him tremble before the power of the Lord. How about it Obendago?
Obendago: My name is Obed-Nago it means....
Meshack: thanks for the dissertation Obendago. Well boys, no time to waste. The king is waiting for some shit and I guess we better not disappoint.
Shadrack: Meshack, for once just listen to me and let me do the talking.
Obendago: Just one thing. His name isn't "Nebuckanezzer" It's Nabu-Achad-Enez-Ahar and it means.....
Meshack: Got it, no sweat bro, we'll just ride the wave.
SCENE II. SHADRACK, MESHACK AND OBENDAGO IN THE FIERY FURNACE.
Meshack: What a son of a bitch. All I did was be nice and this is what happens. How about this shit Obendago?
Obendago: I told you my name is....
Meshack: Yeah whatever bro. I'm just saying this sucks. If only that slave girl what's-her-name had backed me up.
Shadrack: That was the king's daughter you idiot! And you sexually molested her! Now we're cooked! You fool! I told you to let me do the talking.
Meshack: Hey fondling some ass can hardly be construed as sexual...hey is it getting hot in here or is it just me?
Shadrack: I can't talk to you anymore. Obed-Nago, can you see a way out of this?
Obendago: Oh, all the sudden somebody knows my name? Are you sure I'm not "Bowana" or Eddie Murpy?
Shadrack and Meshack together: Who's Eddie Murpy?
SCENE III: THE EVIL KING DISAPPOINTED.
King: Put more wood in, it's not working.
Fiery Furnace Engineer: I can't understand it. They should be incinerated. The plans were approved by congressional committee.
King: Did you try putting more wood in?
Fiery Furnace Engineer: It's just unfathomable. The supply chain, the aggregate demand, the liquification of the debt, it all should have worked.
King: For the last time, did you try putting more wood in the fire?
Fiery Furnace Engineer: That's the thing. We don't have any more wood but we used our futures on wood to diversify into other commodities.
King: Such as?
Fiery Furnace Engineer: Milk, butter and eggs.
King: OK, that does it, I am out of patience today.
SCENE IV. THE EVIL KING SATISFIED.
Meshack: Man am I glad the king found that engineer to throw into the fire. Obendago, how did you work that one out?
Shadrack: Yeah thanks Obed-Nago, that was amazing, how did you do it?
Obendago: Before I answer, I want to know if you know the parable of the kindly Samaritan.
Shadrack: Hey, I'm part Samaritan!
Obendago: The story goes this idiot gets the shit beaten out of him and after that it's the Samaritan's problem. It's a good story. Here, allow me to demonstrate.
Meshack: Ah, this is all purely metaphorical, right?
Shadrack: I just knew today was gonna be a bummer.
Notes: Book of Daniel.
