Did Ernie K-Doe talk like that to his mother-in-law?

Nor do not ask what happened to my childhood friend Susan:
"..Shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday, police said a motorist abandoned a car mid-span on the Staten Island-bound side of the bridge's upper level, and a witness saw a female climb over the bridge railing."

I’ve been drinking vodka all morning.

Avatar 2:19pm

Rex you modern rocker

My son put his water glass near my wine glass and I accidently drank some of his water and thought of a great WC Fields story: " He was famous for drinking white liquor???? and famous for organizing parties and picnics - etc... At a picnic, someone exchanged his drink bottle with a similar bottle of water .. he took a long swig of the water .... gagged and sputtered "I'VE BEEN POISONED !!!!"
