The blog Derangement and Description, which is always good for an affectionate poke at the oddities of our profession and silly cartoons about EAD, has a brilliant post today about a 1980s-era fixture of SAA called Raiders of the Lost Archives, which she's proposing to resurrect. Similar to The Capitol Steps (the political comedy troupe), RotLA offered skits, fake PSAs and advertisements, parody songs, etc.
Happily, she has included a link to a PDF of a complete script, including narration, sound effects, and song lyrics. Among other things, it includes the stage instructions "Archival terrorists take over the microphone..." Go ye and laugh!
