I can't put it much better than the Church Fair Guy did.
They were having a FunFair-thing at some church down here, and, from the street, is was very appealing to kids. I'm sure it was well-intended. And kids were excited!
But, it turned out: No FunFair without a mandatory show first. Some thoughtful parents weren't comfy with this, because their kids were a bit young for the show. But the church fair guy said, "I can't let you in unless you watch some of the show."
Somehow, that just says it all. No party, unless you watch our show.
And make no mistake: We're going to have a show. Yes, we know you are looking for something you need, something you yearn for, deep down...but we have this show, starring -- let's see, here...uh -- us. And we put a lot of work into it.
We could just let you in, let you party, let you laugh and play. We could even laugh and play together! But we have this thing, this way of doing things, and if you don't dig it -- you're not in.
But we're sure you'll find what you're looking for -- really looking for -- elsewhere.
This, too, has a whiff of familiarity.
