Exit 13B Tromaville Jesus

As the web site for Toxic Avenger the Musical, states: Tromaville is one exit you don’t want to take off the New Jersey Turnpike.

The opening song goes like this:

There’s a place between heaven and hell

Don’t need a map, just follow the smell

A place filled with filthy air

A place full of dark despair

A place you have no prayer

A place called, New Jersey, the Garden State.

Who will save New Jersey?

We’re dying for some air

There’s no hope in New Jersey

Does anybody care?

Lord, we need a favor

We need a sappy Savior

But who? Who?

Hard to believe, but some of the plot may have been plucked right out of the Good Book.

A humble, mild-mannered Melvin tries to pour a little love on the town of Tromaville. He attempts to show people the way but the town’s dastardly Mayor -her big song is "Evil is Hot"- along with the Establishment want none of it and condemn this innocent man to a toxic death. Left for dead, he rises from the toxic sludge with a higher purpose and little green tinting with an eye that can’t seem to stay in its socket. He’s not a pretty sight but in the end his message of love endures; he saves the earth for all of mankind.

Isaiah 53:He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.

Wow (why am I always saying "wow" when I visit your blog??)!!

When I read the line "He attempts to show people the way but the town’s dastardly Mayor -her big song is "Evil is Hot" - I immediately thought of Jezebel. UGH!

So, I'm assuming (dangerous, I know!) that Tromaville may be landfill territory?
