Requiem for a Big Honkey

R.I.P. Franklin Cover, 1928-2006.



As a kid, "The Jeffersons" was one of my favorite shows. With their contrast in size, color, and class, Tom Willis and George Jefferson were great comic foils for each other. Tom's in a deluxe apartment in the sky now.

BTW, Is this not a cool shirt?



(See, it wouldn't be racist if I wore it because I am, in fact, a honkey.)

I just went over to the Amoco to buy some beer, and the clerk had a steel prosthetic hand...and he kept rubbing it on the top of my six-pack carrier...weird.
Just thought I'd share.

Steel? that's awesome! He could put a glove on it and knock people the fcuk out! Kinda like that guy in Enter The Dragon! But he had all sorts of attachments, if I recall correctly.

you're a honkey?

spydrz - Was it bit off by a loose seal?*

THSE - Great movie. Despite the lack of Chuck Norris and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, maybe Bruce Lee's finest.

jasdye - Believe it or not, yes. But I have street smarts. You don't wanna throw down with me.

*I know you don't watch the show; that was an AD reference.

Not sure about the seal thing. However (and this is mean) it did remind me of the scene in one of the Scary Movies where Chris Elliott touches everything with his withered hand.
