Part 2 of 2
Gish Gallop met with “Sheriff” Mack at an undisclosed location. Here is part 2 [part 1 here] of the interview we have all been waiting for.
Mack [breaking into full song]:
Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has MacHeath, babe
And it keeps it way out of sight
Lou [interrupting]: Mr. Mack, what do you find interesting about that song?
Mack [startled]: You mean besides the fact that it has my name in it?
Lou: Well, yeah. I was wondering…
Mack: Die Moritat von Mackie Messer. Like my German? I’ve been taking this Rosetta Stone course. Anyhow, it’s a fun ditty. And Mack the Knife is a hero of the Three Penny Opera. His real name is Macheath. Scottish I suppose.
Lou: I’m pretty sure Macheath is not a hero. He is a murd…
Mack: He’s the hero alright. He stays true to his character. Like the OathKeepers. Hard and Fast to the truth and to the Constitution. Macheath aspires to be like a regular guy. A self-made regular guy.
Lou: OK, let’s move on. Is there any truth to the rumor that you are heading to Gaza to teach the Palestinians how to use woman and children as human shields?
Mack: Yes, I am flying to Israel this afternoon.
Lou: And how will you teach them?
Mack: I will find some Palestinian woman and children, and then I will show the Palestinian soldiers how to make them stand in front.
Lou: How will you do that?
Mack: Look, I’ll figure all that out once I get there. Have you had lunch yet?
Lou: “Sheriff” Mack…
Mack: I’m hungry, let’s eat.
