    LZ's anthemic Immigrant Song is a little heavy until I start to pour a shot, perhaps In The Navy by Village People with Cointreau?

    The racial slur "wop" derived from the late 19thC influx of Italian immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island lacking proper ID, hence "Without Papers.

    In the days of Brit rule, we had a term WOG - western oriented gentleman, for indians who were or tried to look/behave british. Also, "brown sahib".

    So, it's not only mad dogs and Englishmen but also WOGs that go out in the midday sun?

    Surprised Senti didn't chime in with either "Dogs of War" by PF or "Dog Day Afternoon" starring "his little friend". Guess he's too busy trolling elsewhere to be seen in our poor little company. That, or he's pining over FOD's most recent absence. I miss him too!

    He's just bawling over FOD's awol. Sir, are you using the euphemism ''little friend'' for the mean, lean acting machine?:-|

    He is rather altitudinally challenged and has that "lean and hungry look" Caesar speaks of when referring to yon Cassius.

    Had Rafa been a Formula One driver, there'll be very little time violations. Tyre change (safety reasons), yeah? NOOO!:)

    That's why Rafa is relegated to riding a golf cart while TMF zooms with a Merc 63 AMG.

    That's pretty good. But maybe it depends on the location of the gearshift.

    Radek is a mercurial guy and can lose to a lemur on any given day, which would be a bummer for all Czech women...

    I like the intensity in the lemur's eyes, but his eyes should be on the ball, not trying to intimidate his opponent.

    More like 'it's'' eyes is focused on the ball by tracking it with the buttcap.

    CraigFergie with 'roo balls as a talisman, is he nuts about balls or his balls are knotted?:wink:

    Have you ever seen Knots Landing? I've only heard but it is easy to remember just like the Six Million Dollar Man (Why not ''60 Million...'' to future-proof it back then?).:-|

    Yes I watched Knot's Landing but couldn't quite connect with the "Mack" character correctly after seeing so many episodes of Kojak calling "Crocker" when he needed some legwork from his trusted underling.

    "Who Do You Love?" was performed live by the Doors. For Jim Morrison, it was Pamela Courson.

    In that case, he is in the wrong sport. He should be in Pastrana's sport--with wings--he can do the superman, plus the seat grab (I figured he would still need to grab somewhere:))!;-)

    Pastrami on rye, preferably marbled, a bit of sauerkraut and heavy on the spiced mustard, to go and a nice cold bottle of cream soda! That was lunch at my desk in a NYC ad agency quite often.

    No beach...I'm inland (Orlando) but I may relocate soon to Daytona.

    No stringing lately...sold my set-up for a start-up in pedicabbing. If cash flow improves, I will resume my wizardly talents there.

    Went southbound for a "cup of coffee" almost 30 years ago and have been here evermore. The things we do for family.

    I have never been to Florida, as I am nervous about alligators, boa constrictors, odd police reports, and my chances of being arrested for my accent.

    Jim Morrison was arrested two times in Florida, but never in California. I am somewhat afraid of Florida.

    You got always slug them crocs with your Fischer bag or a bottle of Stoli. And in case they are illegal aliens they may wish to keep a low profile.
