The Hot Club

K Man O’Fire says he could call his own cell phone and leave the message “I found a hot chick with a nice ass at the Hot Club.” Chuck D jibed, “Your phone would call you back and say “No you didn’t’.”

Citizen Caroline was complaining about her foot hurting her. She’s a runner. So Fleet Feet Pete asked her if she’d seen a doctor. Caroline said no, that it would interfere with her running. Said Pete, “Sounds like a runner.”

The soup sign fell over. “A Sign Fall episode”, said the Wise Man.

November 9th there’ll be a tribute for Thom Enright at the Hi Hat Club from 3-11. According to Fleet Feet Pete, Beaver Brown, Roomful of Blues, Duke Robillard and other great bands will raise money for Enright who is seriously ill. $20 cover to get in.

Jokin’ Joe said that the bulge in the back of a man’s pants is more important than the bulge in front.

Told Foot Joy about the RIC 40 year reunion that I had organized. FJ said when his father went to his 55th high school reunion, they asked him how the other people looked. FJ’s Dad said, “I looked better than any of them except one person and she had 3 face lifts.”

The Silencer said that at her reunion the men didn’t fare as well as the women. They were bald and fat. The women were a little chubby but that was because they all had children.

The Wise Man wants to note that the Silencer wears glasses.

Contraire had a birthday last week and we hear he’s around the old speed limit. Pucky calls Mr. Contraire Mr. Annoyance.

We were talking about someone going for a job interview at WBRU. Some of us didn’t realize that Brown University no longer owns WBRU. This according to Deep Source (he wears glasses and a hat).

Foot Joy noted (before IT’s bout with medicine) that it must have killed Larry Bird to have Isiah Thomas replace him.

The Hot Club

Errata – Foot Joy pointed out that last week I wrote ‘father of the daughter’ instead of ‘father of the bride’ (free drink from bartender). Oh well, you knew what I meant, right?

Bob (Marafino) told me to use your cell phone to light your way – up the stairs, down the stairs, in the dark…Marafino means clear water.

Foot Joy noted that golfer Lee Trevino once said: “You’re Mexican until you make money and then you’re Spanish.”

The Silencer told me about Hpnotiq – premium vodka, fine cognac and natural tropical fruit juices. Not your low class vodka.

Kirk Feather said that William Ayers should be the next President of the United States.

Alexander the Grate and I were discussing celebrities who have not aged well. Alex asked rhetorically, “When did Farrah Fawcett become David Lee Roth?” The Grate One added that some of the faces of the stars “implode like a pumpkin after Halloween.”

We were talking about Edie Adams passing away. The Cisco Kid e-mailed Mr. D. about it and said of Edie, “It’s too late now.” Mr. D. responded, “No it isn’t. Find out what funeral home she’s at.”

Turns out Fleet Feet Pete used to be a cancer merchant. He filled his grandfather’s vending machines with cigarettes.

Citizen Caroline’s friend John says that all men are dogs. Woof!

The Warden walked in and wanted to know “Where’s the Mess?”

Foot Joy says if you Google NESN’s Heidi Watney that Jason Varitek’s name comes up.
Sure enough if you Google those two, you get blogs that ’Tek is getting divorced and part of the reason may be Watney. If Watney loses her job, we’ll know. Where’s Hazel Mae?

Contraire asked me if I knew who Julia Adams was. I told him that a Julie Adams was in Creature from the Black Lagoon. He showed me a NY tabloid with a picture of Adams in the arms of the creature but they had her name as Julia.

The Hot Club

Contraire wants to get rid of the ‘deadbeats’. Who are the ‘deadbeats’? Why the regulars, of course. But isn’t Contraire one of the regulars? So he wants to get rid of himself.

Mountain of Love was playing on the jukebox. 5 Angels only knew the Johnny Rivers’ version. I pointed out that it was originally done by Harold Dorman, who reached #21 with it in 1960. Johnny Rivers (born John Ramistella) took it to #9 in 1964.

We were talking about the new western Appaloosa, so classic western movies came up. Eric mentioned Shane and Red River. I recalled The Magnificent Seven. Marty liked Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The Skipper brought up The Searchers. The conversation ended when Three Amigos and Blazing Saddles were mentioned.

The Skipper also liked The Cowboys and noted that it’s the only John Wayne movie in which he dies. I pointed out that John Wayne also gets killed in The Fightin’ Seabees, so it’s the only western in which he dies.

The Silencer had some wasabi peas which were spicy hot. She suggested that we not rub our eyes after eating them. Jokin’ Joe added “Don’t scratch your nuts.” To which Wise added, “Flame on.”

A man and a woman came in together and engaged in a bantering back and forth about whether he was date material for her. A few regulars offered support for the guy, one suggesting that the Everyday Joe was ‘a diamond in the rough’. Said the woman: “He needs more cutting.”

A woman wore a black patent leather raincoat and had a black patent leather bag. The Silencer observed that she was missing black patent leather shoes.

Contraire came in with his nephew who revealed that Contraire is his godfather. Foot Joy said, “His parents didn’t really care about him!” Wise repeated FJ’s line to the nephew who said, “No, they didn’t.” He agreed!

Contraire said he wouldn’t take a girl to Latitudes where 5 Angels plays. Pucky said, “Contraire doesn’t have a girl to take to Latitudes.” Contraire said “I wouldn’t take a horse there.”

Sunday night Soup to Nuts walked over and asked me if Manny hit his homerun off of Derek Lowe. I told him that would be hard as they’re both on the same team.
