Son Brings Mom To Coup At Nation’s Capitol, A Reader Brings The Comedy

January 12, 2021

Should we just assume Eric Munchel also took his mom as his Junior Prom date?

A US Capitol rioter caught on camera menacingly clutching disposable restraints while wearing paramilitary gear is a former bartender from Nashville who stormed the Senate with his mom, according to a report Sunday.

Eric Munchel, 30 — photographed holding the zip-tie-like handcuffs while he climbed over press gallery chairs — said he and his 57-year-old mother, Lisa Eisenhart, breached the building, according to the Times of London.

The photograph of him, which went viral, underscores the violent intentions of the mob.

In the midst of the true threat to democracy from these people comes the slivers of humor, such as that concerning Munchel and his would-be fellow terrorist mom. One of my readers on social media, Lisanne Lavoie, wrote truly comical dialogue for this duo. With her consent I post it here.

Zip-tie Bay, “Mahhhhhmmeeeee…I wanna go break into the Capitol with my friends.

“Mom, “Uh, uhn…I don’t think so.”

Zip-tie Boy, “But why, Mahhhh? All the cool kids are gonna be there and Our Holy Orange Leader, Trump, said to come – that it was ‘going to be wild’. I wanna be wild. When do I get to be wild?”

Mom, “Did you do your chores?

Zip-Tie Boy, “Yup, and, I made all these purty handcuffs, pretty neato, huh?”

Mom, “Well, okay, you can go, but only if I go with you.

Zip-Tie Boy, “But Mahhhh, how am I gonna look cool in front of all my friends? I’m gonna lose my street cred.”

Mom, “How’s about you wear your best cammo pants and all black tactical gear – you know – the stuff you wore to Christmas dinner.

Zip-tie Boy, “Well, okay, but you gotta climb over the railings by yourself.”

And so it goes.
