And I guess I should mention that Fred Funk is playing golf just about 45 minutes away from me.  If the wekend weren't already jam-packed, I'd dress the hubby in my best pink flowered skirt and away we'd go to follow Mr. Funk from hole to hole, confronting him with the shame that is his misogyny.  Okay, so we'd be thrown out by the second tee -- but we've been bounced from better places than River Highlands, so it would be an honorable sacrifice in the name of women everywhere.

If you haven't been kicked out of 50% of the bars in the city you lived in when you were 25, you haven't really discovered the purpose of tequila.   It would be better if everytime Funk got to the tee box, you said "Knock it out of the park, Shecky...," he would never be able to forget that.

Whoever does that is officially my hero.  You could also just start singing "The Wheels On The Bus" as he's walking up to the tee box.

It doesn't necessarily have to be "Knock it out of the park, Shecky" or "The Wheels On The Bus" - pick whatever you want.  Just be sure that, if it's just a spoken line, then it needs to give the guy a deep and lasting sense of WTF?, and if it's a song, it needs to be something that will stay in his head all day.

And don't do it while he's addressing the ball or during his backswing or anything.  The whole point of it is that you're not being rude or otherwise doing anything to get thrown out or yelled at.  When the marshal raises the "Hush Y'all" sign, you just hush.  But when the player is walking up to the box (and everyone is saying boring words of encouragement) or after the player hits the ball (and everyone is saying boring things like "Yeah!" or "Nice Shot!"), just be sure to say or sing something that's going to get into the guy's head and rattle around, because it's so weird or whatever.

Do that, and you're my hero.

As a matter of fact, this is a picture of Oprah's (orpah's) sex slave from "The Color Purple 2".

Saw American Splendor last night.  Never knew comics were such a big thing for (some) adults...   
Thanks to WP.  Would have missed out on this engaging indie otherwise.

I recall seeing this one afternoon with a spare couple of hours when  it first appeared on cable.  I can see how it would be appealing--especially if you were a comic buff, but it wasn't really quite for me...  I think because the charachter reminded me too much of people that I struggle with in my own life...   I guess I would rather escape that unpleasantness than re-live it needlessly

It looks like the guy from "Orgasmo," with suitable attire, but I don't remember that outfit.
