Would George Carling approve of the quip we made while watching the ads for the testosterone boosting products?   While watching the ad we blurted out the comment:   "If my doctor said I had low-T, I'd beat the sh*t out of him!"

On Thursday February 14, 2013, the Armstrong and Getty Show opened their phone lines and asked folks to make suggestions about how to protest the rising tide of overgovernmentalizing (we invented that word while waiting on hold for our turn to talk) in American Society, so we were full of testosterone and just wanted to suggest that folks call radio talk shows and say words that offend the FCC.   We didn't want to actually say those words and incur a big fine.   We were immediately disconnected and the 10 second delay must have consigned our attempt to oblivion via the "memory hole."   Guess they don't have a sense of humor (at least we got a good item for the column from the effort).   Do conservative talk show hosts have an irony allergy?   Would Lenny Bruce approve our attempt to criticize big government?   Would Father Devine approve our attempt at wordification? 

Speaking of increasing testosterone levels for feeling young, virile, and sexy, after we noted that this year will be the Chinese year of the Snake, we thought immediately of our quest to drive (or at least get a ride in) a Cobra and so we fired off an e-mail to the Los Angeles Shelby American Automobile Club (LASAAC), which includes a goodly number of examples of the famed car made by Carol Shelby, asking if they were planning any special Cobra events other than their annual car show, which is usually held in September on the Santa Monica Pier.  

A club spokesman replied that there were no current plans for adding an extra Cobra event to their schedule to celebrate the year of the Snake.   Our expert authority concluded his reply with a quote that we will use for the column ending wisdom quote.   We were informed:   "Confucius say: Man who run in front of car get tired... man who run behind car get exhausted... and man who get hit by car get that run down feeling!" 

Now the disk jockey will play the "Logical Song," Joan Baez's "Diamonds and Rust" (because of the line about "you were so good with words") and Mama Cass' "Words of Love."   We have to go look up the meaning of omphaloskepsis.   Have a "senescence" type week.

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
