"Do You Worship At The Altar Of Michael Musto?"

No, it's not me asking that.

I already know you do--and thank you, by the way!

But interestingly, Creative Loafing posed that question in an editorial titled "Call For Snark: CL Is Looking For The Next Michael Musto Or Molly Ivins."

Asks the piece:

"Do you worship at the altar of Michael Musto or Dan Savage?

"Do Amy Sedaris, her bro David, the late Molly Ivins, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Wyatt Cenac, Sarah Vowell, and--OK, pretty much all those Jon Stewart people--send you into fits of uncontrolled giggles, often to the point of making you feel a little creepy about yourself?

"Do you consider yourself almost as smart, irreverent, and opinionated as them? (If so, you already have the correct level of ego.)"

The paper is asking for all those traits in hoping of finding someone to supply some badly needed snark to their pages.

And I must say it's kind of flattering to have reached a point where people are looking for the new Musto--a sort of bitchy, little Mini-Me.

I just hope they're not that good or they might become a threat!

WTF? Musto and Savage, both eliminated from the VV? It is hardly worth opening the door to pick up the VV. And, they can't afford a further decline in readership since the paper is now as thin as AM NY and Metro. ESAD VV.

This guy is truly Mr. New York!!  Not only do we love his reads, his knowledge and character are an inspiration to anyone who would dare even attempt to step at his level.  4 Stars****

Musto is irreplaceable. No one can think, write and dress like him!

You can be our Musto (1) in Charlotte N.C. (2) for no compensation.

What an opportunity!

Personally, I sacrifice right-wing conservatives on the altar of Michael Musto.

"Sorry, we're only auditioning BICYCLING Michael Mustos today.

 

"Try-outs for WRITING Michael Mustos will be tomorrow."

 

Who needs a knock-off when you have the designer original?

@mikeymusto No worries, the mold was stomped and broken after you…

Genuflecting, shoulders taut to ground, my transubstantiational moments lie and swell with each tap-a-tap required in reaching altar Musto.  An altar lad of a certain age, Musto turns fructated gruel into Veuve Cliquot in a snap.

This is extremely cool! Flattering indeed to be mentioned with the great Ivins.

No bitchy little Mini-Me could make a dent in YOUR wall of snark., honey.
