Lenten Levity


Tom Jones reportedly insured his chest hair for $7 million.

Neil Diamond had no comment. Alec Baldwin threatened (promised?) to leave the U.S.-again.

I'm starting a blogdom rumor that a certain blogger, I'm not going to mention names, but her initials are ATD, personally prepared the binder for Mr. Jones' policy.

Where in the world is Engelbert Humperdinck?

I once used Rogain on my legs hoping my leg hair would come back.

(When guys get older, it sometimes wears off in the calves region.)

Well, although my initials match, it wasn't me...I'm too young AND I didn't sell insurance.

Although if I did sell insurance, I think insuring chest hair would be about as good a risk as insuring Cuban cigars.

Cathy, didn't you say once you smoke cigars? Hmm....

Praise of hairy men...ewwww.

But there's Tom Selleck and he's kind of hairy and still has his calf hair as far as I can tell.

Swissmiss: I forgot about Tom Selleck! *sigh* Thanks for reminding me.

ATD: What does your youth have to do with it? I like your attempt at changing the subject. LOL!

Michael: My Mom had a huge crush on Engelbert and Tom Jones.

Terry: I think that is an "off-label" use on Rogaine. LOL!

Vin: Thanks for the photos!

I can't say I praise hairy men, regardless of how much chest hair I might have. LOL!

But Engelbert. Where is Engelbert?

I heard once that he was riding "Les Bicyclettes De Belsize" or dancing "The Last Waltz" with some gorgeous female somewhere in Europe:0)

Well, in the order of reason and logic, age has a LOT to do with it in the process of elimination of the meaning of the initials "ADT". For example, you said that someone with the initials ADT was rumored to have sold the policy on the chest hair.

Thus, I offer that the undisclosed person of the dubious ID of "ADT" cannot be me, for a couple of reasons:

* I'm too young to have been able to sell rumored policy, as such an act requires a particular age in order to be present when it occurred. I believe the sale of rumored policy would have had to take place prior to my birth.

* My second objection, ergo, proof, that "ADT" cannot stand for me is due to the fact that I never sold insurance, but rather, worked as an adjuster and investigator in relation to autos and the occasional boat or mobile home.

* Third objection: I would argue that only an idiot would sell an insurance policy on chest hair, no matter to whom it belongs. And as I am not an idiot (a point you may choose to argue), I would not have sold the policy.

* Even if I were an idiot, I still would not have been allowed to sell such a policy by my superiors whose main concern is the bottom line, and they would see a razor, or nair, or a drunken night of carousing by said party with the chest hair as being a strong possiblity, thus a very poor risk for the company.

There...does that help?

By the way, how are your cigars? Did you insure them?

ATD: Er, no.

Anyway, this post contains neither reason NOR logic. Honey, that's the whole point! :-)

Reason nor logic--good name for a band.

I should have insured my leg hair. It is so bad I can't wear shorts any more.
