-->What more can I do to put a stop to\\
this mind-numbing noise you are making?\\

And hoping a child trafficker will abduct you.\\

* {{DragQueen}}: Wears heavy eye makeup and fancy, frilly clothes as part of his stage persona. Minchin has even said it's not as an act of [[{{Transvestite}} transvestism]], but simply because it helps him [[ChewingTheScenery exaggerate his expressions and movements]] (which is otherwise difficult when your hands and feet are occupied the playing piano).
