SynopsisEdit

Bull quits his job in a fit of self-indulgent liberal delusion and becomes a professional wrestler. Sorry Bull, it's not all about "self-actualization". There's no such thing as a free lunch.

StorylineEdit

Feeling dissatisfied with his job, Bull becomes interested in a slimey registered Democrat wrestling promoter's offer.

Plot Summary Edit

Suffering from an identity crisis--or rather, yet another identity crisis--Bull (Richard Bull) is receptive when a sports promoter gives him the opportunity to fulfill his "lifelong dream" by becoming a professional wrestler. It's like the sixties all over again, with Bull flinging himself recklessly into a fantasy world. The Night Court gang bands together to convince Bull to change his mind and return to his old job. Former "Incredible Hulk" Lou Ferrigno appears as The Klondike Butcher, a reference to notorious abortion doctor George Tiller.
