Honk if You’re Horny

Ed Solomon was in my Hebrew school car pool in 1973 when I was 8 and he was 11. There were a total of six of us in the car pool. Our mother’s drove.
Ed made a sign that he held to the back window of the station wagon for the other driver’s to see: HONK IF YOU’RE HORNY.
We had no idea what it meant but it sure was funny.
Ed later did stand-up while at UCLA and then wrote “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and “Men In Black”.

Meanwhile. I just posted 6 times at PAW about Mark Zuckerberg giving money to restauarants.

I bought $45 takeout from that same Chef Chu’s and left a $5 tip. As a percentage of my actual cash on hand, this would be equivalent to Zuckerberg giving away $100m.

The Covid-19 could be a deal-breaker for capitalism. Revolution, crime or LLCs to DAF’s and a pledge — your call, RichieRichieRichieRichie Rich.

There could be a dish named for him at the ramen place called Veruca Salt.

You see, there are five types of broth at Dohatsuten: Soy, Salt, Spicy Miso, Tonkotsu, Vegetarian Soy.
Whereas Veruca Salt, before it was an indie band, was a bratty rich girl in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” movie.
So I’m riffing on two or three pop references and calling Zuck a brat, ok?
I have a yolk about Oompa Loompas but it’s too rich for these pages.
Seether.

I heard that one of the PayPaly mafia just gave a bilion dollars to Bird Dog Restaurant, the former Mandarin Gourmet the former El Dorado Mexican although it will be paid out in avocados from a special tree, one avocado per year for 125 million years — it’s an $8 avocado.

You know for that same $800,000 he could have turned Dan Gordon’s into a comedy club and gotten Jo Koy to play his “grand opening”

O Brother Where Arf Thou?
(I’m riffing on my two prevoius jokes, about the ramen place and Bird Dog — “arf” is the sound a dog makes; “broth” is a play on “brother” and also a movie, two movies, one by the Coen Brothers and one by Preston Sturges. Ok?)

Which reminds me: it was five years ago to the day that EK bid adieu to Jacquetta Lannan, who ran an upscale hot dog stand in the site of the former Know Knew Books, which i wanted her to call A Confederacy of Dunces but was actually called Chez Franc.
Coinkydinky, when I was an undergrad at Dartmouth, a wee bit before Jacquetta’s time, we used to have a yearly contest called The Smith College Weiner Queen.

Not only am I calling Zuck a brat, he is the wurst type.

edit to add: I have to admit that I did not just jump from Mark Zuckerberg as a bratwurst to Ed Solomon Honk if You’re Horny, but I stopped at Sean Penn as Jeff Spicoli calling Mr Hand “dick”

andand:
Actually I went to Peet’s for the first time in months, and that was 12 hours ago — -and then on my own blog I was recalling that the guy who wrote Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure was in my Hebrew School Carpool….I actually met Zuckerberg on the night that he commissoned David Choe to paint a mural on his first office space, above Jing Jing. I gave Choe $20 for a calendar of his art work — years later it was revealed that Choe was offered $20K cash for the mural or FB stock options which he took and made him a millonaire but I reckon that if I hadn’t come along with that $20 he might have took the cash from Zuck and shorted himself the stock options.
Meanwhile, when I tried to fact check my own story Choe had posted that the coda of the story is that the City of Palo alto had sent FB a fix-it letter claiming that FB was liable for the damages caused by Choe dripping paint on the sidewalk — so rather than Palo Alto being an incubator of tech somehow, which we sometimes claim to be, we were actually a nuisance to FB.
But I don’t use that social media — don’t want to give the broth the satisfaction of my data — and I know the difference between a 501c3 and a Donor Advised Fund via a LLC. The reason the article says that it was a gift from his personal account and not from his ZCI fund is that that fund is subject to audit, and restricted to 501c3s.
If these billionaires gave away their entire fortunes except their primary residence and tried to get by just on their wits, their contacts and their good name, I’d be impressed. But i’m not impressed with giving away a billion dollar if you got a billion dollar hole card, so to speak. hot dog!
Some one once said “I’d rather be lucky than good” — I say “I’d rather be funny than good lucking”

Try the veal.
