Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Not sure this is apropos of anything, but it’s worth noting, on the eve of the release of Valerie Plame biopic Fair Game:

Plame and her quasi-counterpart Anna Chapman offer a contrasting U.S.-Russia take on beautiful-woman spies. It’s like the Cold War all over again.

Except that Plame is decidedly more of an espionage heavyweight than Chapman. At least as far as the public can discern into the murky territory of international shadow-works. In any case, we end up with foreign affairs eye candy.

This is too good to not steal repurpose: A surrealistic play contained within a single Twitter post.

@hotdogsladies: “MAKE ROOM FOR DADA: A PLAY” ACT I ME: Aw. I broke the ice cube tray. ELLIE: Is it chocolate? ME: Why? ELLIE: I like chocolate. [exeunt]

With four characters left over from the 140-limit, too. Impressive. Of course, only a dada theme would make sense (or, more to the point, not make sense) within the cramped context of a tweet.

Maybe this will inspire a slew of tweeted playwriting? Some director can trawl the Twitterverse for a couple of dozen such quickie plays to curate and produce, presenting them “A Night of Social Media Theater”. Imagine the buzz…
