Poppin’ Fresh!

November 27, 2018

I think it was back in 1986. Me and my man Orville Redenbacher were hanging out at Knott’s Berry Farm (Camp Snoopy, if I remember correctly) and these punks tried to cut in line for the Timberline Twister. Turns out it was Bartles & Jaymes. Of course, O-Red (as I called him) was about to bust a gasket, since he and B&J had been nemeses ever since the trio had had a falling out over Betty Grable at a USO dance in ’42. So we set about to rumble, right there and then. Orville pulled out his switchblade and I got my crossbow but the wine cooler boys were packin’ some serious heat and so Orville and I cut our losses and made a beeline for the safety of Fiesta Village, where we ate sno-cones and corn dogs until our tummies hurt.

We kinda lost touch after that, he and I. But to this day I can never enjoy a bag of Orville Redenbacher SmartPop! Butter without smelling his old man aftershave mingled with the aroma of cotton candy and fear sweat.

Today would have been his 100th birthday. I still miss you, old friend.

Generation Gape

November 24, 2018

I think, as you get older, the predisposition to find the younger generations so bloody annoying is so that when they leave you out on that ice floe to die it’ll feel like a damn blessing!

Oh. My. God. I want to Fandango this sumbitch so badly right now. Seriously, I’m burning vacation days to see this one as soon as it opens. I may start camping out now.

Wurst Week

November 10, 2018

When I was seven, my birthday party was held at a restaurant called the Wiener King. They roped off an area for us kids and had hot dog shaped balloons and a hot dog shaped cake and banana splits with red bananas to make them look like hot dogs. We got hot dogs for lunch and even played “pin the wiener on the bun.”

Man, that was some seriously messed up Freudian shit.
