You’ve Got to be Carefully Taught! Any gay uncle worth his salt knows its risky to drop a Rodgers and Hammerstein quote into blog post about Arlen and Harburg’s The Wizard of Oz, but sometimes ’tis more important to be clear than to be a purist. So “n’est-ce pas” on my “gay pas?” In this powerful and shocking video, secretly filmed by my brother Rob, I endeavored to teach my precocious niece Maple Munk, age four, and nephew George, age two, some points of fact that I actually learned myself at Maple’s age about everyone’s favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz. I mean, what’s the point of being a Guncle if you don’t pass along show business lore and give the young ones a proper foundation in the arts?
As you will see, the children were absolutely rapt by my storytelling and, indeed, it was an adult, my usually supportive sister-in-law Kim Johnson, who masterminded and executed the fecal drone attack, therewith foreclosing on her children’s chance to learn the about Buddy Ebsen and his allergy to the aluminum make up, his subsequent replacement by Jack Haley Sr. and, finally, the irony of Liza’s unfortunate marriage to Jack Haley Jr. many years later due to her hard partying lifestyle, demanding work schedule, inability to carry a child full term and the intrinsic myriad of complications of simply being Liza Minnelli. I find all of this really puzzling since Kim, who carried out the coup de main with such precision is, underneath her glamourous exterior, a total gleek whose favorite movie is Meet Me In St. Louis!
