Hey, hey, hey, it’s Fat Albert

fatalbertWhen the snow melted a few days ago, Linette made a startling discovery in our front yard. There, among the now visible beer cans, candy wrappers and thawing piles of dog poop, were a pair of adult-sized jeans with Fat Albert’s face across the ass. My advice to Linette, who called me at work, was to call the police lab. Instead, she posted something about it on Facebook. And, within minutes, someone – probably one of our hipster doofus friends – had come along and snatched them up. So, don’t be surprised if

As for how they got there in the first place, I suppose it’s possible that someone inadvertently dropped them from a laundry basket while loading it in or out of their car, but I can’t help but let me mind wonder and explore other scenarios, most of which involve people making love atop our front yard mulch pile during a snow storm. So, that’s pretty much how I’m spending my evening tonight.

    People in Ypsi are like snakes. They grow until forced to shed their skins.

    Hey, hey, hey, stop unbuttoning my pants.

    (Please note, this in now way is meant to make light of sex crimes, which are serious enough to warrant an entire SVU franchise of their own.)

    From Wikipedia- “The Platinum FUBU collection also includes the M.Ali, Fat Albert and Harlem Globetrotters clothing lines.”

    I can’t tell if the clothing line still exists.
