I'm no early bird. I need all the beauty sleep I can get. But at the crack of dawn today, my phone was blaring like a fog horn.
I stumbled to the phone, stubbing my toe in the process, and finally got there in writhing agony. The lady at the other end, a woman I work with, was "cackling maniacally."
"Bernie, have you checked out Bill White's column today. Bernie K is a pirate, trying to pick up the ladies in a bar."
"Arrrghhh." (Not a pirate sound, it's my damn toe).
I've checked out Bill's column, and it's one of his funniest. It was worth the early call. Even the stubbed toe.
There are more parodies at LV Poliblog and LV Road Rage.
Shiver me timbers!
