Even Blue Men are losing their jobs these days due to the disintegrating economy.
"Not right now. After the layoffs, the Chicago Blue Men are down to three full-time drummers, provocateurs and marshmallow munchers, plus a couple of part-time guys who fill in as needed."
Some additional cost-cutting measures that may be on tap:
- Reduce the Blue Man Group to the Blue Man. He will juggle.
- Switch to White Man Group to save money on paint.
- Make a Blue Man sex tape to revive interest.
- Hire Michael Phelps and add synchronized bong hits to the show.
- Perform exclusively at Wal-Mart next to the Bruce Springsteen records.
- Ask federal government for help with Blue Man infrastructure needs.
- Rob banks with faces painted blue to disguise identities.
- Will be Blue Man for food.
- Tell Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that failure to pay Blue Man taxes was an honest mistake.
- Change name to the Blue Obama Group.
