There goes my plan to get an HR job using the name "Drew Carey"

Andy Griffith has sued a Wisconsin man who changed his name to Andrew Jackson Griffith for an unsuccessful sheriff campaign.

Sure, he may seem all grandfatherly, but Matlock is a ruthless man who'll take you, your family, and anyone you know down. In fact, when asked what he thought was best in life, his response was "to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

when broached about the subject, griffith tersely replied, "why should i change my name? he's the no-talent a##-monkey!"

Griffith did play the ruthless bad guy in that horrible Leslie Nielsen flick.

Also, he was really the muscle behind Mayor Bob Terwilliger's scheme to build the Matlock Expressway.

jasdye - Here I went with a totally unrelated and cryptic Conan the Barbarian reference and you pull out an on-spot Office Space quote. I should just hand the keys of this blog over to you.

spydrz - Project: Kill?

dubin - You sure that wasn't Cousin Merle?

Here's a quote from Griffith's character:

General Rancor: Dick Steele couldn't stop me fifteen years ago, and all the Dicks you got won't stop me now!

that's all this will be, though. a flippin' tribute to Office Space.

and Napoleon Dynamite.

you may not care for that so much.

On second thought, I'll just keep control of my blog myself.
