Dyke--Ster, a Stunning Creation of the Master, Skrlin

JUNE 30, 2015

The legend, Gerald Skrlin inevitably keeps pushing the boundaries of social mores and good taste, but in doing so he always makes the political/social point he set his sights upon. Here he has blended the cricket-promoting Mayor Paul A. Dyster with the gay agenda promoting Mayor Dyster as he is re-fashioned as Mayor Dyke Star.

Skrlin is able to employ the "dyke" word in this artistic endeavor because the urban dictionary allows such use.

The urban dictionary reads, "dyke: a word used to refer to Lesbians.

Originally meant to be a slur, it has been "reclaimed" by many Lesbians who might use it to identify themselves." So, the word now belongs to the masses and is fair game. And game it is in Skrlin's pen. While the mayor has become the darling of the cricket set and has presented himself as a freethinking and fair--thinking mayor who respects all sexual orientations and nationalities and races he has recently totally diminished that self -anointed reputation by hiring an administrative assistant who has tweeted all manner of obnoxious and ill conceived commentary that runs counter to the diverse, democratic and fair thought that is allegedly promoted by Mayor Dyster.

As if that weren't enough his promotion of cricket has threatened the very future of local Little League baseball. Thusly, we see that the rock star/dyke star mayor has struck out by whacking youth baseball over the far right field wall, for what may be a home run in Dyster's eyes but remains a heart breaking swing of the cricket bat for young baseball players in the city.
