Well, I digress. But speaking of Bombs... Boy .... that Aaron Rodgers of the Packers can sure throw some
"Well, if I did, and I did get married, I am not inviting you if you don't stop that." Which just made him laugh a whole bunch more.. and then he showed me a picture of HIS girlfriend... and gosh
|Rodger's girlfriend.. with spicy meatballs|
When I was done crying I remembered Pearl Harbor and Judy-Alice-Millie or whatever and I didn't feel so bad.
But the Packers have made football interesting in my part of the world and I am grateful for that.
Anyways... where was I... OH OH OH... Remembering Pearl Harbor...see, right after the attack I was helping clean up the harbor and stuff, cause, listen, the Japanese may be neat and tidy at home, but boy, when the come visit they sure leave a mess... well Franklin called, said he was gonna go on the radio, which is the thing we had before TV and the Internet, and he was going to give a speech to America and all, "Jimm," he said, " We are going to punish those Evil-Doers and I am going to tell America all about it."
"FD, " I said... see, FD is what I called him... that Franklin thing just didn't work for me on a personal level," Drop that Evil-Doer thing. Sounds like something some idiot from Texas would say. Work 'Infamy' into the speech; much more memorable, see, and you want to have folks remember."
Well, he thanked me for that.
Anywaz wazza I talking about... Oh yeah, Remember the Alamo... no...ah, that was my brother.... Remember the Maine.... no... that was Teddy, oh and was he a nice guy, too, just like his cousin..neat mustache..I meet him in South Dakota... him and me wrangled horses together. Boy, was he a rough rider! I helped him with that and he got lots better.... Gees, once him and I got into a big fight in a bar with some cowboys, see, and they thrashed us good and threw us out. Teddy wanted to just rush back in and I said, "No, let's find a big stick and walk quietly back in there and give 'em what for."
"So, what you're saying, Jimm, is that I should walk softly and carry a big stick?" No flies on that Teddy!
"Now you'r talking like a Bull Moose," is what I replied.
Anyways, Pearl Harbor.... see back in the early 70's, when I was 23 or something, I met these VietNam vets who always who would always have a party on Pearl Day, Buffton and Mad Dog and Hoople. Now they always got bombed and talked stupid shit, like, go to the U and find some Japanese Foreign students and beat them up. Well, that wasn't a nice idea... so I mixed up a drink to get there minds off of it... I mixed up
1 oz tequila
1 oz triple sec
1 oz lime juice
... and fed those guys a whole bunch of them to calm them down... I remember telling Hoople it was a Kamikaze,,, and they thought that was funny... now you can buy 'em everywhere.
where was I... oh oh oh... Pearl Harbor.... oh oh oh... it wasn't Judy-Alice-Millie.... IT WAS SHIRLEY /!!!!!!
Shirley, I remember!
