International television celebrity Charlie Sheen announced Sunday on TV news show Sixty Minutes that he had hired local band Honky Tonkitis to play his children's birthday party.
When asked why Sheen had hired a honky tonk band that performs songs about drinking and divorce to entertain a children's party, Sheen said, "As kids we're not taught how to deal with success; we're taught how to deal with failure."
Sheen further described what he saw in the band: "They're the best at what they do and I'm the best at what I do. And together it's like, it's on. Sorry, Middle America. Yeah, I said it."
When asked if the band was comfortable performing for a childrens birthday party, lead singer Johnny Maplewood said, "Well, at first, we were a little hesitant because Mr. Sheen wanted to pay us in tiger blood. We couldn't do that. But hey, the check cleared. Why not?"
