a big, stiff drink

A few years ago, I heard about a bar in the Yukon that made itself famous for serving something called a Sour Toe, a drink served in a shot glass along with an amputated human toe. I liked the idea a lot and filed it away in the back of head, thinking that one day, if I ever opened a bar, Id find an equally good gimmick.

Well, I think that fate stepped in this evening to tell me that its finally time to open that bar of mine You see, I just now happened upon an interesting little article concerning Rasputins penis. Apparently, it would seem that the cock of the Mad Monk has been preserved! And now its just waiting for the right entrepreneur to come along and build an entertainment empire around it.

So, heres my idea a Mad Monk Martini, or, better yet, a Stiff White Russian… some kind of drink served with Rasputin’s penis instead of something more traditional, like a stalk of celery. What do you think? Would that put Ypsilanti on the map, or what?

According to the research Ive done, theres a saying that accompanies the Sour Toe Do it fast or do it slow, but your lips must touch the toe.

Ive been sitting here just now trying to think of an equally good little saying to accompany my drink Here, I think, is my best idea so far: It may be shriveled and it may be dead, but you’re not done until you suck the booze from the head.

OK, I know thats not great, but its a start.

Oh, this has absolutely noting whatsoever to do with Rasputins penis (that I know of), but did you see in the news today that someone uncovered a pre-9/11 quote from Paul Bremer, the current US Administrator in Iraq, on the subject of the Bush administrations handling of terrorism. Right now, hes back-peddling like a mother fucker. Heres a quote from the story:

At a McCormick Tribune Foundation conference on terrorism on Feb. 26, 2001, Bremer said, “The new administration seems to be paying no attention to the problem of terrorism. What they will do is stagger along until there’s a major incident and then suddenly say, ‘Oh, my God, shouldn’t we be organized to deal with this?’

“That’s too bad. They’ve been given a window of opportunity with very little terrorism now, and they’re not taking advantage of it.”

Bremer made the speech after he had chaired the National Commission on Terrorism, a bipartisan body formed by the Clinton administration to examine U.S. counterterrorism policies.
