Life is Ruff ... and if you don't believe me, just ask the Puppetmaster, a Poor Schmo who has set up shop in front of the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles with his faithful friend, a sock puppet designed to resemble a Cockapoo. Together, they belt out show tunes all day for anyone willing to make a small donation. I haven't seen them in person yet, but I plan to make a special trip just to request they sing the theme from "Cats" ... and to give them a little advice. I think they'd have much better luck if they moved to 7th and Montana. There's been a vacancy ever since Rigolatte stopped belting out Opera Tunes in the restroom ...!
