Hookers or Cake

Where the self-obsessed get serious about silly
I'm too wacky to be hip.

    • ------------------------------------- How this blog got its name

      ------------------------------------ There was a large painting of Evel Knievel shaking hands with Richard Nixon. It hung in the Mayors office. Late one evening after everyone went home. I took it down to the lab. I zoomed in on Evel’s left eye a 100x and enhanced it. It was an address. I went to the address. It was a modest, 1970’s style, split level ranch home in the suburbs.

      ----------------------------------- Inside I found a dead parrot lying on a waterbed. I revived the parrot with some saltines and adrenaline. We became good friends. The parrots name was Randy. One night a few years later while Randy and me played Gin Rummy, he sang me a song about a fire. The title of this blog was never mentioned but I sensed it, and Randy confirmed it by giving me ‘THE LOOK’.

            I am a proud follower of Hookers Or Cake, a place filled with excellent writing that will stretch your imagination whether or not you want it stretched.  I was checking out the Hookers Or Cake book by Jade Bos on Amazon and noticed this over on the side.

            He-he. Actually the man who makes everyone’s favorite toys and bits of wonder including that wonderful horse mask has been a great supporter of my books via kickstarter. Accoutrements/Archie Mcphee give em a follow! I don’t wanna brag, but I’m also big in the bovine scene.
