The following was in my facebook inbox:
Why did you steal the “12K Dream” theme from Labor Power. You know that the reference was created by Chris Hipp and then totally developed by Roger Worthington. Ironically, the fact that the youngsters on your Team actually seem to aspire to becoming forgettable low end professionals makes them the caricature that is being lampooned. Irony is in part when the actor does not even know he is the brunt of the joke.
Why not try to invent your own stuff.
There is nothing new under the sun.
My co-conspirator in this “project” actually asked Roger for permission to use the expression. This happened at Tommy Nelson’s wedding, if you need to run a fact check. Permission was granted and we moved forward. We are very aware of the fact that the term is meant to make fun of exactly what we are about, and that’s why we went with it.
I appreciate your attempt to explain irony to me, but like Alanis Morissette, I am just not getting it.
I’ll keep you posted as this story develops.
