Thumbs up for Bat Boy: The Musical

Last night we attended "Bat Boy: The Musical"(reviewed here by the Arizona Republic). The play is based on a recurring character in fake (but sourced) news stories in the Weekly World News. While it didn't exactly describe the Bat Boy we were familiar with from the WWN (for instance, he didn't fight with U.S. troops in Afghanistan), it was a humorous and entertaining performance at the Phoenix Theater by the Nearly Naked Theatre troupe.

The "Bat Boy: The Musical" play was co-authored by Brian Flemming, the director of the atheist DVD "The God Who Wasn't There" and the silly "Blasphemy Challenge" that has prompted many YouTube videos.
