Local musical group Honky Tonkitis announced Thursday that they had been surprised by an extremely large pre-Christmas order of their CD's.
"I still can't believe it. This was a massive order by one purchaser," lead singer Johnny Maplewood commented. "It came close to depleting our whole stock. Alcohol & Heartbreak, Deep End of the Bottle, even You Drink and Drive Me Crazy. And no one ever wants that one."
"It just goes to show that there are people out there who appreciate good ol' honky tonk music," guitarist Bruce Dean added. "It really makes me regret that we decided to hold off on recording that holiday CD we were going to do: A Very Kwanzaa Honky Tonk."
"We're so very grateful that this happened. This means my kid will actually get something for Christmas other than a sock puppet," drummer Kurt Weber concluded. "We tried to contact this very northern purchaser to see what they were doing with all the CD's. Their only response was, 'cheaper than coal.'"
