Satire at the Expense of Used Car Salesmen
(Among Other Things Just as Unimportant)
“a Stone Age talent-search television program that pre-dated “American Idol” by half a century. It might also be described as a pre-Pleistocene “Gong Show” — though it lacked the gong and snarky host, Chuck Barris.”
“Rocket to Stardom” was a psychotherapist’s dream: a slow-motion train wreck distributed via TV for rubberneckers and the unhinged.
The Los Angeles Times once referred to it as a “freak show,” and in some respects it was. But a number of amateurs who appeared on the show were able to launch successful performing careers. Sitting atop that list is Duane Eddy, a Grammy Award winner who’s been called the greatest rock ‘n’ roll instrumentalist of all time.

And as come to be expected, Word-Depressed will not allow me to edit this as I would like to.
The above is obviously Kris Kristofferson and sorta germane to the subject matter of this post. And thank Y’all once again if you have made it this far. Your time spent here is always appreciated.
The Lenny bit, ‘Religions INC’ is somewhere buried below, but Word-Depressed won’t let me put it where I want to put it.
I want to shove it up their ass.
That is where I wish to put it, but I cannot even do that.
Even that statement is wrong. It presupposes that religious folk do not have a sense of humor, or that they are intolerant of not-religious folk. I know of only one religion which is totally intolerant and not open to sense of humor. I don’t need to name it, but we all know its name (Shhh…. Don’t tell. But it starts with an M and ends with an ‘um’. Yeah! You guessed it: “Methodist-um” )
(Now I know, I have been uncharacteristically silent on the ISIS CRISIS in specific and ‘Religion Poisons Ever’Thing’ in General. I am ‘back-building’, much like that volcano in Iceland. What you may experience here, today, is just a fissure, impotently spewing. ‘Fissuring’, if you will. Don’t worry: The Big Bang is coming folks and it ain’t gonna be nothin’ nice.)
Shhhhh…. don’t tell. Keep yer head, and yer wits, and yer tits, and yer clits about you.
So… Don’t speak. Bad for your health: ‘Speaking.’
Listen / Watch Here Below: And Christopher’s last line (in case you missed it)
So ‘be cool’ and watch it, for it is timely, given our present present.
And just for fun:
Judge Aaron Albamiser & Lenny Bruce:
“Thick Fingers and a Homemade Glass Eye.”
“A Red-Headed Junk-yard Jew.”
“Two Four-Letter Words and a preposition.”
