The gourd man.

Does anyone care about the gourd man?

What of his ailments and tribulations? There is no pink here to get your attention. There is nothing to be aware of.

Tonight Mrs. Bissage and I will watch "The Killing of a Chinese Bookie" by John Cassavetes.

I know precious little about it and yet I fully expect that I'll be seeing more of that gentleman.

What a curiously odd thought . . .

Ann Althouse said...

Oh, lord that movie bored me. Saw it when it came out. We adored Cassavetes. (And Ben Gazzara.)

Bissage said...

STOP!!!

Stop right there, Professor!

I am putting my fingers in my ears and . . .

I . . .

AM . . .

NOT . . .

LISTENING . . .

I bet the Gourd Woman cares about the Gourd Man.

What do you do with a gourd?

That gourd guy looks sort of crazed.

Doesn't anybody care about how the Gourd Man came into posession of that pretzel-gourd in the background? Did it just grow like that? Or did he torture it into growing like that? Troubling either way.

I'm with Knox and Freddy Hill in having doubts and concerns about the well-being of the gourd man. I'd be worried about doing anything that might gourd him on, that's for sure.

wv: dollemi 1). the name of the gourd daughter's favorite doll 2). one of the songs in a foreign production of "The Sound of Music."

I'm wondering about his coat. It looks like he's wearing some kind of Gourd Camo-cloth.

I may seem to be unsympathetic but I too am sick of seeing the color pink high jacked by breast cancer awareness. However, perhaps being male, I am just jealous that prostate cancer awareness has not been able to high jack the color brown.

Bissage said...

Yep, oddly enough, the gourd man was in the movie, but he was wearing a brown checked sport coat.

No gourds, either, so maybe it wasn’t him, after all.

Maybe it was his brother.

The gourd awareness ribbon is Black Watch tartan, since it is the only color left.

Wouldn't it be yellow?

Wouldn't it be yellow?

Not from the direction that my doctor examines!
