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’.

            :  Love what you've done to your site, very cool. Happy Friday to you!

            Hey Thanks Buddy - I keep a pic of Hedley Lamar in my locket.

            I’ve thought about doing a big thesis on how Blazing Saddles foretold are current political situation… but I couldn’t quite get it right - heres what I got.

            !!!Spoiler Alert!!!!

            The dumb, white citizens of Rock Ridge (America) hate their new black sheriff (Obama) but the sheriff tries to help them irregardless and he enlists the help of a worthless old drunk (the Democratic Party) to help him. Together they thwart a nazi whore (Palin) - an incompetent governor (Republican party) - dumb racist cowboys (tea party) and an evil mastermind (rightwing media)

            Of course the whole comparison falls apart because Rush O’Reilly Beck can’t hold Hedley’s jock…

            so its back to my Finnegans Wake/Cannonball Run II mashup.

            1. squarewaves said: that’s funny… because when Obama was elected all I could think of was the “the sheriff’s a N-DINGGGGGGG” scene when he first rides up on the horse. Nice analogy/parody!
