"People say it's quite unlikely The two of us should stick But I just tell them, 'Hey! It's me and my Dick.'"
From Team StarKid, the creators of A Very Potter Musical and Little White Lie, Me and My Dick is about a boy, Joey Richter and his Dick, Dick. Joey apparently lives in a Universe where people can talk to their body parts, and as a teenaged boy he naturally mainly listens to his Dick. Joey pines for Vanessa, the most beautiful Jew girl at his school, while not noticing that his best friend Sally is head over heels for him. Things seem to be looking up for him when Vanessa breaks up with her long-time boyfriend and invites him over to her house to "study." However, when he gives Sally a tight hug, Dick is introduced to Sally's Miss Cooter and it's Love at First Sight. Now Dick can't get it up for anyone but Miss Cooter and it puts Joey and Dick in a rough patch.The musical ran from the 29th to the 31st of October, 2009, at a student theatre on the University of Michigan campus. It was posted to YouTube in its entirety on November 12, and the soundtrack was released for purchase via iTunes on March 9, 2010. The soundtrack debuted at #11 on Billboard's Top Cast Albums chart a week later. Yeah, you read that right. And for point of reference, also in the top 15 for that week were Cast Recordings for Avenue Q, Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia!, Annie, Hair, The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King and Wicked. According to Billboard's new website, Team StarKid "are awaiting word if Me and My Dick will be selected for inclusion in the upcoming New York International Fringe Festival."The main characters are:
Joey Richter (Joey Richter)- A normal (if slighty awkward) teenage boy. He is best friends with his Dick. His best human friend is his neighbor Sally, whom he is Oblivious to Love. He has a crush on Vanessa.
Dick (Joe Walker)- Joey's penis, he is the embodiment of a teenaged boy's libido: crass, emotional, and sex-obsessed. He does have a sweet side to him though, as shown through his feelings for Joey and Miss Cooter.
Sally (Jaime Lyn Beatty) - Joey's neighbor and best friend. She is desperately in love with Joey but is too shy to say anything to him. She too is awkward and considered a nerd in their high school.
Miss Cooter (Devin Lytle)- Sally's vagina. A Southern Belle with long, flowing hair (it works somehow!), Miss Cooter is young, beautiful, and cares deeply for Sally. She meets and falls for Dick and goes on a journey to find him again.
Vanessa (Ali Gordon)- The "hot little Jewish girl" that Joey has a major crush on. She is in a long term relationship with her boyfriend Rick...until she hears he cheated on her. Now she's on the rebound!
Flopsy (Brian Holden)- Vanessa's vagina who, unlike Vanessa, is happy to be single again as she's "sick of penises".
The Old Snatch (Nicholas Joseph Strauss-Matathia) - Tiffany's vagina who has long since lost her youth and looks due to Tiffany's hard partying and active sex life. She is jaded by penises, remembering her long lost love; her first time. She bonds with Miss Cooter.
Heart (A.J. Holmes)- Joey's heart who tries to get Joey to follow his advice rather then Dick's. He is a hopeless romantic, over the top and emotional.
Big T (Corey Dorris) - The head of the Land of the Lost Dicks, he helps Dick out...or so it seems.
Weenie (Arielle Goldman) - A "pocket-sized" penis who is part of the Land of the Lost Dicks.
This work contains examples of:
Adaptation Expansion: The original play was called 'The Penis Play' and was performed about a year before this version. It completely lacked the Land of the Dicks sub-plot.
Heart: Joey, you... you stinker, you! You are, you are fatty! Joey, look at me when you cry! You are fatty!
Anthropomorphic Personification: One of the major conceits of the play. The body parts even have real names (the Old Snatch is Gladys, Flopsy is Myrtle, etc.).
Beta Couple: A lovely example of the Beta couples actually being important to the plot, Joey and Sally can only get together with both their hearts and Dick and Miss Cooter paired up. Big T and The Old Snatch also count.
Butt Monkey: Joey and Sally. To the point that there's a character who is called "The Kid That Hates Joey".
Cast Incest: Subversion. A lot of viewers were squicked out by Joey Richter and Jamie Lyn Beatty playing a couple due to them having last played brother and sister, Ron and Ginny, in A Very Potter Musical.
Matzo Fever: Joey has it for Vanessa, the "hot little Jewish girl".
Mood Whiplash: Joey crying in the choir room. The bit where Heart humorously attempts to commit suicide ("I'm going to squeeze my left carotid artery, Joey") is the funniest suicide attempt ever, and then thirty seconds later, Heart gives up, wailing, "I'm—I'm broken!" and falling to the floor with Joey sobbing next to him. Cue "Awwwww" from the audience.
Joey: Oh, Sally, it hurts so much...
And then, directly after this:
Joey: Look at me, it's like... It's like I'm crying! These tears keep coming out and I just wann'em to go back it, it's like I'm crying! I'm CRYING! UGH!
Joey, who desperately tries to lose his virginity because of this stigma.
The Pussy Council does not allow Miss Cooter to speak because no one with a hymen intact is allowed to. note Note that an intact hymen is not always a sign that someone is a virgin. Then again, one vagina can probably tell the status of another's virginity either way.
Single-Target Sexuality: Once a body part finds a match with another it is very hard for them to get with someone else. Dick can't get with anyone but Miss Cooter, Flopsy can't get with anyone but Rick's dick, and The Old Snatch falls for Big T and all the sex she had after turned her into a nasty, well, old snatch.
Tiffany has the sword of Godric Gryffindor in her sex toy box (possibly referred to later in the description of the blade-play-kink incident that resulted in Big T's abrupt and involuntary disappearance?)
Vanessa tells Flopsy that "Every time I see him I get these pains in my chest" - the almost identical thing Ron says about Hermione
Sophisticated as Hell: "Joseph Michael Richter...y—...You are a real piece of work. Let me tell you something: I've seen a lot of proposals in my day, Joey, but never have I seen such a...a pathetic...bumblefuck as what occurred out there in the hallway."
