How Dare You Offer Me Advice!

Some dude wrote to me to say that I should post a photo on the days I don't post words. Pshaw. Maybe. Then someone else wrote to tell me that I should wear nicer shoes. Again, maybe. But I doubt it. Listen, who are you to tell me to wear nicer shoes? These shoes may look worn, but they used to belong to Rosemary Clooney.

"Don't let the Republicans get their hands on my shoes after I'm gone," she whispered. Then she died in my arms.

Hey, did you replace the laces on those? I just... I just can't see Rosemary with those laces somehow. The shoes, sure. But the laces?

I went-a to Rosemary's house once. She gave-a me some candy. Then she gave-a me figs and dates and grapes and cakes. Then she gave-a me her husband, Jose's, wallet and the clap.

I'll never forget her.

You must have some strong arms. Are you sure that those weren't Marlon Brando's shoes? I always got those two confused in their later years.

Don't give them away for anything Canadian. Only a monkey in a banana hammock would be that gullible. Maybe Bette Midler will buy them from you for a good price. Or Richard Simmons. And I mean maybe Bette Midler will buy Richard Simmons from you for a good price. I'm sweatin'

I do not think that Igmar Fillipé is a real name. What is he hiding?

Is this the way they are displayed in The Smithsonian? I sorta remember they had 'em more splay footed.

Old shoes, new laces. I think that says something about your personality.

What!?! Posting a picture in lieu of words? That is madness. I suggest that you post a few words to let us know that you won't be posting any words. Either that or put a little yellow sticky note on my monitor each morning listing your web posting intentions for the day so I'll know whather or not visit your site that day. I'm quite busy and think all the extra mouse clicking is giving me the rickets.

If you can't write, post a picture of ME. It's all the rage in the DPR of Korea. You should give those shoes back to Debbie Boone, even though she's a Republican. How else am I ever going to get those light-water reactors?
