"The car has broke down. The chicks have buttoned up their shirts and put their guns away. The midget has gone home."

It's Aaron Spelling Tribute Day over at Faster Than the World.
Next time you make a reference to Tattoo yelling at some plane, think of this man. For he was the one who put that reference in your mind. Hats off to Aaron Spelling today and flags at half mast. Our leader of campy TV and cleavage has died. No more car chases. No more gun toting chicks with their tits hanging out. No more midget asking if he was doing "ok" to his boss.

I own the wrong guns.

Yeah, I noticed that too after I posted. Fussing over the writing is not a FTTW thing, it seems.

Hey, we write either real early in the morning or very late at night. These things pass us by sometimes.

Thanks for the link, Ann.

Hey, we enjoyed the stray image!

Quote now corrected at the link and here. You'll just have to imagine it now.

Just think how much Tori Spelling et al stand to inherit.

Nice life, that.

Here's hoping they misfire like your comments.

That's a great eulogy--I bet Spelling would have approved.

His would have been a life of great achievement had he done nothing more than give us Tori Spelling. One cannot ever think of her the same after having seen her in “Scary Movie 2” enjoying vigorous, . . ., er, . . ., carnal relations with a poltergeist.

“Kick it like you own it!” Indeed.
