Re: The Official Broadway and Musical Theater Thread

We watched it last night. This was my first exposure to it (I'd only heard the 'not miss my shot' take-off when L-MM hosted SNL). It was good. I was entertained. It was really long though. The King's interludes were funny. Jefferson was cool. It was a lot less 'hip-hop' then I was expecting. Seemed ...

Sailors would never tie a noose. As others have noted in this thread, its a big ass knot, and its a slipknot. Only useful for one thing.

When sailors are goofing off tying knots, its something like a sheepshank.
