8 comments


“So, whaddya think?”

            “Whaddya think about what?”

“Whaddya think about ‘whaddya think’.

            “You mean the series of Richard Herr posts?”

“No, the price of bologna in WalMart”.

            “Cute… no, I like it. It’s like one long run-on sentence.”

“Sort of what it was like playing baseball in Savannah.”

            “So, do you think Herr should continue it?”

“Herr? Herr who?”

            “Isn’t that the German word for Mister?”

“Yes, it is.”

            “Does this mean we now have to call him Mister Herr?”

“No, we have to call him Mister Mister.”

            (singing) “Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel.”

“Let’s get back to whaddya think.”

            “You’re starting to sound like Joe Pesce.”

“YOU THINK I’M FUNNY?”

            “Whaddya mean?”

I’M FUNNY HOW, I MEAN, FUNNY LIKE A CLOWN?”

            “Now you got me doing it.”

“We’re going in the wrong direction here.”

            “Actually, I don’t think we aren’t going in any direction.”

“Sort of like the pursuit to fill the Mets pen.”

            “So, how are the Mets doin?”

“Sort of like David Byrne song… ‘same as it ever was’”

            “You mean the Who song… ‘welcome to the new boss, same as the old boss.”

Bruce Springsteen?”  
   
            ‘David Byrne… Joe Pesce… The Boss… I thought this was a baseball blog’?

“It is… so whaddya think?”

            “I’m completely lost now.”

“Sort of like Wilmer Flores is when he comes out of the clubhouse to see if he’s in the starting lineup?

            “So, we’re back to baseball again?”

Yeah, so… who’s on first?”

            “Duda’”

“And second?”

            “Walker.”

“Okay… short?”

            “Astrubel.”

“And third?”

            “I don’t know.”

“’I don’t know’ is on third?”

            “Yeah.”

“Have I heard this in a different form years ago?”


            “Yeah… same as it ever was.”

Bologna in Walmart for a PTBNL.

I happen to know a few comedians local to LI, but excellent, named Rich Walker and Eric Haft, who do a quite terrific Abbott and Costello Who's on First routine, right down to them looking like that duo when they do the routine. Anyone interested might find them (or it) on You Tube....I did not look myself.

it's a good thing we have 30 men on our 25 man roster, to offset the Who's on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and everywhere else merry go round.

So who actually wrote this, Richard or Mack? My guess is Richard, and Mack posted it, but nothing surprises me anymore.

I cannot tell a lie. Mack did it. I was off killing villains in my latest novel. You know, you guys might consider doing the same thing. Gets it out of your system. Then you don't feel like killing Sandy or Terry.

Whaddya think, that might be a good idea! No, I will leave that style all to you. LOL
