Subject: BS: Chimps, Shatner, Cubs......(?)
From: Little Hawk
Date: 02 Jun 05 - 04:32 PM

A species of primate, an icon of stage and screen, and a baseball team...

What is the link, the commonality, the connective significance of these three apparently separate, yet highly fascinating subjects? What could it be? And how does it impinge on the viability of post-modern society?

Amos? Sir jOhn from Hull? Martin? Bobert? Anyone?

Discuss in 75 words or less.

(And thanks to GUEST for the inspiration!)

I can't help you on that one, LH, but I must tell you something that will make you happy. Last night on the Tonight Show, Jay Leno was quizzing three finalist contestants on the 'Jaywalking AllStars'.

One question was 'Who is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court?' A further clue was "William...?"

One bright woman answered 'Shatner'?

I've played opposite a chimp in one or two minor films. I have to say it was less of a chore than playing opposite De Forest Kelly. Don't get me wrong, I loved Dee. He was a great guy. His acting style...that was a little...offbeat. You had to pace yourself in rythm with his chaotic eyebrow twitches. Leonard Nimoy also has an eyebrow twich that can pin a Nile crocodile right to the ground, but with Nimoy you know when it's coming. With Dee, it was hard to tell. His eyebrows were out of control. It took years for me to get used to it. Years. You have to be ready to roll with the punches when you go to Hollywood.

As for the Cubs...not a bad team. I like them. But not as much as I like racehorses and the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. Not half as much, in fact.

Got my new CD yet? If you don't, you're seriously missing out.

Cubs:   A lifelong love affair in the family down through the generations since about 1905. From father to son to son to son. an amazing slice of Americana.

chimps:   smelly, vicious, liberals

shatner: loved him best when he fought the lizard head on an alien landscape.

I really think chimps are very over rated.

Does any one remember a program years ago called The Hathaways. It starred Jack Weston and Peggy Cass.

Anyone remember this show?

chimps: smelly yes, vicious yes, but they are INTELLIGENT primates. I am sure they have varied opinions, and to tar all of them with the brush of "liberal" seems unfair.

Perhaps, but they are neither moderate or conservative, either.

Go, BeardedBruce, Go! 'Liberal' is one thing that chimps are NOT. They are very focused and intent on their own welfare and indeed, survival. Not too many altruistic ones among them. Not to mention, they swear a lot. Yep. They are definitely Conservative.

Martin, you are going to get yours one of these days when I find you, you jerk.

I agree with your assessment of the Cubs, though. A tremendously great baseball team. I can't claim to have family ties goin' back generations as Cubs fans, cos I came over on the boat from Africa in the 20's, but I am as hardcore a Cubs fan as you will find anywhere.

Are chimps liberal? Some are, some ain't. Some chimps are real conservative, lemme tell ya. They won't touch a banana or a babe that don't pass the "sniff" test. I sure as hell won't. I am liberal in some ways and conservative in others.

As for Shatner, the guy is a rich, fat toad with a bloated ego. He's a laugh and a half. He can't act to save his life. He has nothing in common with either chimps or the Cubs. He is a friggin' aberration, a mistake that Mother Nature shoulda forgot by now. Little Hawk is nuts on the subject of Shatner. There ain't no use discussin' it with him.

The Howard Dean yell was impressive. It sounded like a big freakin' chief gorilla gettin' his coconuts lopped off by a guillotine. If they were makin' Tarzan movies these days (I wish) they would for sure pay Dean royalties so they could use that yell on the soundtrack for the Apeman's victory cry. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYAAAAAUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

Fan-friggin-tastic!

I'd rather live - and die - happily and in harmony with likeminded others than in a sourfaced and meanspirited insistence on survival with barred doors and an arsenal of shotguns. After it's all over, what have you got? Answer: A bunch of people who cannot trust ANYONE and who are not interested in - and do not believe in - love and cooperation.

"Ebbie, you can make all of the excuses for why life sucks for you all you like." -M.G.
Martin, if you actually think that has anything to do with what Ebbie just said, you are, in fact, out there lost in space. If you DO know it has no validity, you're showing the maturity of as toddler screaming and tugging at an adult who is too busy to give him undivided attention for a couple of minutes. My, what a constructive way to "combat liberalism"...

From that wonderful, definitely-Chicago, song "South Side Irish:"

...And when it comes to baseball, we've got to favorite clubs:
The go-go White Sox...and whoever plays the Cubs.


which could be modified to

...And when we want to party, we've got our favorite pimps:
The guys who drive the Caddies...and Chongo's brother chimps.


Nothing, however, rhymes with "Shatner."
