After a prolonged absence, Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend organizers are pleased to welcome the return of MAL cultural and social attachés, the dynamic duo, Daddy and Madame Manners. Their 1990’s daily syndicated column, “Do You Blow Your Daddy with That Filthy Mouth?” was published in nearly a dozen newspapers throughout Antarctica and Fiji Islands; and, their oceanic Web blog, “Dirty Holes and Dirtier Poles” is consistently ranked #1 in clicks and market reach by microscopic krill in the coveted 18 – 49 year-old demographic that advertisers desire most. Daddy and Madame Manners will contribute to the MAL Group page over the next few months, offering sound advice for both new and veteran MAL attendees. So yes Virginia, there really is an official Leather Cocktails dress code and Daddy and Madame Manners will review that in the near future – and, in addition, other topics such as: elevator and lobby etiquette; best practices for handling your puppy; and other seemingly “innocuous” areas that may not matter to you, but most definitely matter to your weekend hosts and event organizers, Centaur MC, will be addressed.
Finally, we expect that subsequent to an anticipated settlement of several legal clearances and music copyright issues (similar to those that kept DVDs of both Ally McBeal and The Fugitive unreleased for years), Daddy and Madame’s MAL-focused commentary and musings will be on display at various points throughout the weekend, and also at select Target and Modell stores. Both Daddy and Madame have requested that we leave you with one of their most profound reflections offered at an anti-violence rally in Paducah, Kentucky just last month, “If everyone in the world held hands, then no one could hold a gun.” We also expect that they will elaborate on that comment further in the near future.
