Since I haven’t seen it elsewhere I’ll put it here with thanks to **MPB in Salt Lake **who mentioned it in the John Waters thread:
Squeaky Fromme has been paroled. She gets out next week.
So what do you do when you’ve been in prison for 35 years and are the batshittiest crazy member (at least in interviews) of the world’s most horrifying tiny cult?
My guess: first a series of children’s books, then an autobio, then a club called SQUEAKEASY! By this time next year she’ll have replaced Paula Abdul on AMERICAN IDOL.
And then a super successful revival of CHICAGO in which she plays Roxy to Sara Jane Moore’s Velma with Robert Blake as Billy Flynn. That will lead to a hit talk show. “Today on SQUEAKY we talk about how hard Hollywood is on overweight actresses, Philip Seymour Hoffman talks about his new movie, and ten more ways Charles Manson can save the world, then Richard Simmons shows how to make our butts perkier for summer!”
Maybe eventually a sitcom: Squeaky adopts a family of multiracial orphans and they go around the country in a bus solving crimes and dropping letters off to “Uncle Charlie” (played in cameos by Jason Lee). And of course ultimately a career in country music.
Or she’ll be back in prison by this time next month when she sexually molests a fire hydrant while holding a nun hostage with a spork.
