Life-Threatening Karaoke!

I had my life threatened at karaoke awhile back when I was running a show. Crazy, eh?

There were two guys named Tony there that night. So, we decided one of them would be Tony Blue because he always sings blues songs. He was happy to see me and it was all good.

The evening progressed and he was screaming for everyone and cheering and enjoying himself.

Towards the end of the night, he got up to sing. His song had a very long instrumental in the middle. During this time, it is completely common and normal for the karaoke host to make some joking comment about the singer, or whoever, or just fill the instrumental time with banter. Well, there was a picture of a weird looking blue man holding a guitar on the screen during the instrumental break. So, in a very friendly, happy mood, I said, "Hey, Tony Blue, is that you playing the guitar?"

And he flipped out, folks. He stopped singing the song and brought the mic right up to where I was seated. He started SCREAMING into the microphone, the lyrics to the song. Then he took the mic down and say, "If you ever crochet with my song again, I'll kill you."

"I said, don't threaten me, eye of a needle."

"Don't mess with me!"

"I'll cut you off right now!"

"That's the worst you can do? Cut me down?"

"You're not singin' anymore."

He glared at me and handed me the mic and walked off with his song still playing. He shot a balloon at me and flipped me off screaming over the music, "I'll never sing for you again," and stalked off.

It was a little disconcerting, even though I knew he was just drunk. But still...I didn't enjoy the situation at all.

See? There's action at karaoke!!!
