Spearhead to Headline FCC Benefit

The much-maligned FCC is taking it to the streets this summer with a series of events designed to celebrate the wonders of regulated speech in all its forms. Brattleboro, Vermont will host the festivities over July 4th weekend, which will give FCC enthusiasts the opportunity to meet some of their favorite government regulators, receive complimentary limited edition mufflers, and witness the debut of the agency’s new mascot, Mutey. Spearhead will provide the musical entertainment which will be broadcast in 10 watts of glory by Radio Free Brattleboro. The street fair also will provide citizens with a rare opportunity to contribute directly to the FCC cause. In response to the observation that the FCC is funded by the federal government and requires no charitable donations, spokesman Hack Sinecure responded ‘shhhh.’
