Feet Taste Better with A-1 Steak Sauce

For what it is worth, I'm not the only one whose eyes have rolled at the latest comments by Enloe.

Steve Hays --- the Dean Martin to my Jerry Lewis --- excepting those 60's hair vests, please --- brings up and briefly discusses more Enloevian comments at his latest Triablogue post. This could mean that I have company in my padded cell, or it could also mean that others have the same sensibilities about needing to point out the flawed nature of his comments.

Hays is to Dino as PP is to Lewis. Now that's a comparison with a lot of potential. That makes me the straight man to his comic genius. It also makes me a member of the rat pack, though not, unfortunately, the chairman of the board. But, hey, if I can't be Sinatra, it's better to be Dino than Peter Lawford.

Yes, Dino--crooner, hard-drinker, womanizer. Well, the last one does have its fringe benefits, right?! :-)

Perhaps I'm not a good Lewis, since, after all, I don't think the French consider this PP blog a work of genius!

If you want to be Sinatra, be my guest.

But you can roast people well, and I was thinking of those Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts DVD sets making the rounds on late-night tv ads!

Okay, how 'bout I'm Alec Guinness to your Peter Sellers?

That would make me bumbling and stumbling and generally incomptent. Non-pedantic Protestants might thus say the imagery fits! For myself, though, there is no logical contradiction if I bow to your Guinessesque aspirations while simultaneously demurring being compared to The Inspector!

But Clouseau always got his man!

Actually, Sellers and Guinness were both very talented actors, so the comparision was not intended to be the least bit invidious.

Okay, try this one out for size: the PP is to Cary Grant as Hays is to Clint Eastwood. Is that a better fit?

At this juncture, Frank Turk might have a very different comparison in mind, something along the lines of: you are to Luke Skywalker as I am to Darth Vader! :-)

While Clouseau got his man, he didn't do it according to my sort of idiom. I'd rather be right for the right reasons than to happily luck into being right.

The decisive argument, btw, is that I don't want to be attacked by an overzealous martial artist doubling as my manservant.

If you want to be Clint Eastwood, that would be fine, provided that you're more Dirty Harry or a spaghetti-western drifter. I can't picture you singing in a muscial such as Hitch Your Wagons.

I could see you standing over a Romanist stating "Single source of tradition or two sources of tradition? Vatican I or Vatican II? You know in all this excitement, I kinda forgot myself. So, I guess you have to ask yourself the following question. Do I feel lucky? Well.......do you, punk?"

Ah, yes, the great tradition of singing cowboys like Gene Autrey and Roy Rogers. Who needs Mozart with material like that? :-)

On the other hand, given your libertarian politics, you might like to have first crack at Clint Eastwood or Chas Bronson. So maybe I should settle for Sean Connery.

***Who needs Mozart with material like that? :-)***

That's what I think when I heard the accordion guy on the Lawrence Welk show, and the bubbles only added to the experience.

About Chas Bronson: you're talking to a guy who ate up every minute of Death Wish III. Who *doesn't* fantasize about taking out gangbangers with a bazooka?!

You're a thinking man's Clint Eastwood!
