Bugs Bunny the Best
Bugs Bunny celebrated his 80th birthday this year.
My favorite cartoon character was introduced in “A Wild Hare.” Elmer Fudd was also featured in this short that lasted approximately eight minutes. After the lisping Fudd lets us know he is hunting “wabbits” we hear for the first time, “What’s up, Doc?”
Bugs is the man. He’s likely the greatest baseball player I’ve seen, too. I’d say he’s 10 to 15 percent better than Mr. Ed and Herman Munster.
“Assclown” has long been a favorite. Thanks to the Urban Dictionary, I have discovered the definition: One, who, through the fault of his parents' conception, is a skid mark in society’s collective underwear.
Always loved Carl Crawford when he played for the Rays. He could do anything on the field, and he could make you smile off it. Take the time Crawford told me about a Cajun restaurant he'd been to. While detailing the jambalaya and Crawfish Étouffée, C.C. drew Delmon Young into the conversation. That led to the following exchange:
Delmon: “So is it all you can eat?”
C.C.: “It is if you pay for it.”
I laughed when I saw a Facebook post titled “What’s In A Hot Dog?”
Underneath came the ingredients:
Carcass trim from cattle and pigs including: cheeks, jowls, tongues, lips, gums, eyelids, hearts, intestines, ears, nostrils, tails, snouts, tendons,
windpipes, livers, kidneys, salt, bones, blood, fat and preservatives.
Sarcastically, the message concluded: “Enjoy!”
My response: “I will.” And… “So that’s where all the flavor of a hot dog comes from.”
Merry Christmas all. See you next week.
