Can't Tell The Players Without A Scorecard

Elliott apparently has mixed feelings that the original K.I.S.S. is coming to Summerfest but he's missing out on the intense rivalry between two tribute bands.
Joey Fatale, the 4-foot, 4-inch New Yorker who heads the all-dwarf KISS
tribute band MiniKiss, is denying published reports that he tried to sneak past
security last month at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to confront a
rival band leader, 4-foot "Little" Tim Loomis of Tiny Kiss, for allegedly
ripping off his idea for such a group.
This story from the LA Times contains what may be the most wonderful sentence of the decade, redolent of the brilliance of Paddy Mac hisself.
Loomis, a former drummer for MiniKiss, was performing with Tiny Kiss, which
includes three little people and a 350-pound woman, on St. Patrick's Day at
Beacher's Madhouse

It's impossible to make this stuff up.

Both tribute bands are nearly impossible to book for a bachelor party. I know someone who tried.

If the first guy had knocked the second guy off the stage would it have been a KISS off?
