OMG! It's Slim Goodbody!!!
Is this NOT the hottest thing you've seen all day?
I thought I'd never hear mention of the man with his innards printed on a full-body Spandex suit again. I mean, I saw this guy at Portland's Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall back in 3rd grade (what was that? Like 1991?). Mind you, to this day it has been the only show I've seen at the A-Schnitz (can't really afford anything else that shows there). That was back in the day when elementary schoolers went on field trips 100 miles away and didn't have to sell friggin' chocolate bars door-to-door to raise money. Those were certainly the days before Measure-fucking-Eleven.
And now I see the Slimster's making an appearance at the McDonald Theatre! Here's the info:

I thought maybe Slim Goodbody was maybe past his prime after the '80s. I mean, Spandex is so '80s, right? I figured he'd be replaced with big fluffy organ mascots. Look, kids! There's Spleeny! Esopho-Gus! Mr. Brain! Lung Fung Ku!
Anyway, glad to see you back, Mr. Goodbody. You certainly taught me a thing or two back in '91. I hope the kids still love you in '08. And boy ... you're a cheap seat!
