Will Rogers Theater was home to an amazing show of talent recently as Oklahoma City's Rotary Club 29 took to the stage in their second annual "Rotary Idol" competition, according to a story in OKC Friday.
The club, which is one of the largest in the world, obviously had a pretty big talent pool to draw from and attracted distinguished Rotary members who sang, played instruments, recited poetry and stretched the old funny bone with comedy acts.
OKC Friday, however, reported that the singers were the only entrants with any real talent. One act they mentioned in particular was the Rotary Club Quartet, apparently the largest quartet in the world. What? Do they mean pant size? The quartet (which means four people, right?) has 16 members and performed a five-man routine. So, wouldn't that be called a sixteentet or a quintet? This gives us some ideas to spice up Chicken-Fried News' all-male a cappella group, the Editenors. We could add some ladies or even an instrument or two "¦
Another musical act that gained positive points was a duet featuring Anne Roberts and Eric Hileman. If the judges liked that " and they must have because the duo was crowned Rotary Idol " they should have seen the touching duet between CFN intern Bucky and Captain Morgan at a Halloween after party.
When the "Idol" theme wears out, we have some more reality-inspired suggestions: Dancing with the Rotarians, Survivor: Club 29 and " our personal favorite " When Rotarians Attack!
