Mimi Plastique

Lili-Anne sent this to me yesterday. I thought it would be a nice clip for those of you who don't live here in Chicago to watch to give you a tiny taste of what it's like to ride the train or the bus to and from anything and everything.

May I present Mimi Plastique. Apparently, she was making a little video on the L and one of the other passengers began to harass her. This is how she handled it...



"No, I don't THINK I'm tough, motherfucker! I know that if you come for me, I'm spraying your black ass with mace! And then I'm gonna beat the shit out of you with my goddamn shoe!"

'Atta girl!

I don't know Ms. Plastique, but I love her. And I seriously want her to accompany me every single time I ride the CTA. That would be spectacular!

I really like her. :-)

I got "Sorry, this video is no longer available".

She sounds like a character though.

I noticed that YouTube took the video off...I guess it's OK for college pranksters with one brain cell to light their farts and post the video, but defending oneself doesn't set a good enough example.

whim - She's fierce!

mark & aaron - She's back up now. Not sure what the problem was, the video is running from me. Don't mess with a drag queen on the L!

Aaron said...

Yep, it IS back up now.

I noticed that they were at Thorndale, which is right along my route...lovely! And she said she was getting off at Jarvis--that used to be my stop when I first moved here!

I also noticed that Big Bubba didn't move his great big ass, either. They're all tough when they're talkin' the shit, but if they're gonna get their ass kicked, they just keep settin' on it. :-) And she was READY, too!

She's my new goddess...

Dayum! I likes me some Mimi!

BTW, Stephen... I'm thinking you, me, and Karen must go to Vegas together for Bette, cocktails, and silliness. Autumn, sometime?

Let me know, doll.

xoxo,
Doug

philip said...

Do drag queens get PMS? This would certainly make one thing so.

Mark :-)

And who's the poor gal sitting in front of her, TRYING to look out the window and ignore the whole thing?

Brilliant......
