Hi Everybody.. The G-Man is not feeling very inspired today.
So I hope you don't mind if I have a special guest, do a 55 in my absence.....
"My Mother was a 15 year old French prostitute named Chloe, with webbed feet.
My father would womanize, and he would drink.
He would make outrageous claims, like he invented the 'question mark'.
Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy!!
The sort of general malaise, that only the genius possess...
And the insane lament!!!"
Thank You Dr Evil......
Say, I also have heard that your father was a relentlessly self-improving Boulangerie owner from Belgium, with low-grade narcolepsy, and a penchant for buggery!!
All righty then...Thanks again... Peace!
PS..If you have written a 55, you may go tell Susie..
She has a link on my blog-roll, or you may tell me..
...'and a penchant for buggery'...hehehehehe

I've done some very stupid things in my life, but NOTHING near as stupid as something that I did yesterday. I have a very dear Blogger friend that when presented with a favorite treat, always says.."I eat them by the handfulls"!!
In this spirit, I thought that I would stage a pic of me cramming a handfull of some potato chips in my mouth. Some chips I might add, that came by special delivery in the mail..
Just any chip?...I Think NOT!!!!
Rt. 11 Mama Zuma's Revenge-Habinero!!
That should have tipped me off right there...HABINERO!!!
The River Styx immediately trickled down into my gullet...
At first it wasn't so bad, then literally..All Hell Broke Loose!!!!
My tongue is still numb...

Hi Everybody...Well I promised you all pics from the North American Auto Show going on in Detroit this week, and I do actually have a couple of car pix, but once again one of my obsessions took a hold of me and I got a bit sidetracked..
The car event is being held in a grand old arena called Cobo Hall. It's a huge complex down by the river, and parking is crazy. The best thing to do is to park in a great 'touristy' area called GreekTown. That is also part of the 'casino area' in Mo-Town..
Anyway, in GreekTown there is a huge casino there that is always hopping, and you can catch a mono-rail to Cobo Hall and other down-town attractions.
The sleek silver car in the first pic is that of the all-electric new GM car called the Volt!!
It is still officially in the prototype stage, but the word is that GM is going to produce the vehicle. The yellow Camaro with a shadowy figure blocking part of the view, is the 2009 Chevy Camaro.
This car was also a prototype car, but they are actually going to build it. In May of 2007, the last Monte-Carlo rolled off the line in Oshawa Ontario, not too far from the legendary homes of Tim Horton, and Lisa Caplan. And that is where they are building the Camaro.
OK, enough about cars....In GreekTown, there is by far THE finest pastry shop in the state, the Astoria!!! Feast your eyes on just a small sampling of their fabulous wares!!!
Those curled and rolled deep fried things, are crunchy and decadant. The shredded wheat baklava's are to die for. And those 'Bird-Nests' are stuffed with pistachio's...
Between me and Alex, we spent about 40 bucks on peace offerings to our respective spouses..
It Worked !!!...Hahaha...
The name of that pastry shop reminded me of a famous poem ....
"There once was a nympho named Gloria,
Who married Sir Gerald de Moria...
She screwed him and the best-man..
Then Sir Gerald again...
And the whole staff at the Waldorf Astoria!!!
Ahhh, I love the classics... Peace!

Hi Everybody...Monday Swinefest will be postponed for a week to give all of you a very special treat. Today, My friend Alex and I travelled to Mo-Town for the opening week-end of the North American Auto Show. Being that I sell Chevrolet's for a living, I thought it would be benificial to see what the competition has to offer. ...
I see though that the competition does NOT play fair!!!..Why you say?? Well, even though it was only 11 degree's outside today for a high, there was an over-abundance of Peep-Toed Pumps shamelessly on display...Tsk Tsk Tsk!!!!!
Anyway, I tried to get as many new car pics as I possibly could for your enjoyment....

Mr. Knowitall is taking the night off folks, I hope you are not disappointed...
As many of you know, The G-Man has an ' affection ' toward certain things. Pretty Feet, U of M football, cooking, and of course..Redheads!!
I'm gonna tell a joke regarding Redheads, and I'd like a joke in return, but it doesn't have to be about any particular hair color....Henna color will do...hehehehe
A man is dining in a fancy restaurant, and there is a gorgeous Redhead sitting at the next table. He has been checking her out since he sat down, but lacks the nerve to talk to her...
Suddenly she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out it's socket toward the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it in mid air, and hands it back to her.
"Oh my, I am so sorry", the woman says as she pops it back into place.
"I'm sure that this must have embarrassed you, so please let me buy your dinner to make it up to you" she says.
They enjoy a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they go to the theater followed by drinks. They talk, they laugh, she shares her deepest dreams and he listens, he shares his and she listens. After paying for everything , she asked him up to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast.
They have a wonderful WONDERFUL time!
The next morning she cooks a gourmet breakfast with all the trimmings. The guy is amazed and totally impressed, everything had been soooo incredible.
"You know...You are the perfect woman" he says.." Are you this nice to every guy you meet"?
"No" she replies..."You just happened to catch my eye".
Joke please.... Peace!
(or if you are Hosed...just say Hi..)

Hi Everybody...My good friend and mentor Jenn the Signgurl, has asked me to talk about the dwarf, so may I present to you...Vamana The Dwarf!!
Here we have the 5th Avatar of Vishnu. In the previous 4 incarnations, Vishnu manifested into animals, from now on all of Vishnu's incarnations take on the human form...
Vamana was sent to Earth to restore the balance of power between the spectrum of good and evil. he restores the realm of Heaven back to the Devas away from Bali the King...

In the basic Hindu Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, the Hindu God Vishnu is the Protector and Preserver of Creation. Vishnu is the embodiment of mercy and goodness, the self-existent and all pervading power that preserves the Universe and maintains the Cosmic Order or Dharma!!!
Most of the time, the forces of Good and Evil are evenly matched in the world. But at times the balance is destroyed, and evil demons get the upper hand. Often in response to a request from the other Gods, Vishnu then incarnates to human form, and sets the balance straight again...
9 Vishnu incarnations are generally recognized as Vishnu Avatars...
Here they are...
1)..Matsya the fish
2)..Kurma the turtle
3)..Varaha the Boar
5)..Vamana the dwarf
...But since this is Monday Swinefest, we are only concerned at this time with Varaha.
He killed the Demon Hironyaksha, recovered the stolen Veda's, and released the Earth from the bottom of the ocean!!!! Yay....Varaha!!!!!

Hi Everybody, if it's Wednesday, it must be time for 'Ask Mr. Knowitall'...
Michelle Limestein of Scranton Pennsylvania asks...."Who was the 'Real' Mother Goose?"
Dear Michelle..."Well I knew this chick named Helga that could ram her way...er, Naww, thats another post...OK, No one knows for sure, but many scholars maintain that Mother Goose was actually one Elizabeth Foster Goose of Boston Mass. In 1692 when she was 27, Lizzy married a widower named Isaak Goose and immediately inherited a family of 10 children. One of her step-daughters married a printer several years later, and the printer loved listening to 'Mother Goose' recite old rhymes to the younger children. In 1719 he published a collection called Songs For The Nursery, or Mother Goose Melodies"..
Sharon Crowder-Pea of Botetourt Virginia asks..."I just LOVE high heels, who wore them first?"
Dear Shari..."In the 1600's, Louis XIV of France added a few inches to the heels of his boots, because like all Frogs, he was a shrimpy Mofo!! To his annoyance, he started a fad in the Royal Court. Soon, everyone was wearing elevated heels!! So he made his even higher..but so did everybody else!! This went on until it got ridiculous. Eventually the men's heels got smaller, but the women's heels stayed high. In the 1800's, American women copied the styles of Paris and the high heels...called 'French Heels' at first, they soon became part of American fashion."
Jill Klutz from Rancho Wino California asks..." Are you afraid of anything Mr Knowitall?"
Dear Jilly..." Yes....
Aulophobia..Fear of flutes
Blennophobia..Fear of slime
Catoptophobia...Fear of mirrors
Teratophobia...Fear of monsters
Gymnophobia...Fear of nudity
Ichthyophobia...Fear of fish
Ichycooterphobia...Fear of Britney Spears vagina
Trailotrashophobia...Fear of living next door to Britney Spears
Linonophobia...Fear of string
Xenophobia...Fear of foreigners and unfamiliar things
Awwww, Fuck It..Pantophobia...Fear of everything!!!!"
Mr. Knowitall grows weary....
