From The Grand Bibliotheque in the Latin Quarter in Montreal.
In honor of the late great Johnny Carson, the royal we feature an occasional bit on our TV show called Vaillancarnak in which, having never before seen the questions, I divine answers in a rather mystical manner.
The turban is firmly in place.
The envelopes please.
Having never before seen the question, Vaillancarnak divines the answer to be--
"Open a Chick-Fil-A in Mt. Vernon."
This is where an Ed McMahon lookalike would repeat the answer.
"Open a Chick-Fil-A in Mt. Vernon" and I would proceed to rip open the evelope.
The question, of course, is, "What is Bill O`Brien planning to do with his spare time after voters toss him out this fall?"
You say one is not nearly enough...
The envelope please...
The answer is, "In the mirror."
The question, of course is, "Where should Bill O`Brien look if he really wants to find nepotism in state government?"
If you have to explain `em, any good comedian will tell you that you shouldn`t do `em, but then I`ve never claimed to be a good comedian.
The mirror reference is in regard to O`Brien`s refusal to comment on his $45,000 a year staffer Shannon Bettencourt, wife of the disgraced Republican majority leader. O`Brien couldn`t find nepotism in executive departments which are beyond his control, but he could find it right under his nose if he really wanted to root in out.
Check the mirror, Mr. Speaker.
I for one just can`t wait to to to that Chick-Fil-A in Mt. Vernon. I`ll be right in line behind Ray and Kathy.
The Chick-Fil-A controversy was all over the radio as I drove to Montreal last night (it`s rather difficult locating keys like the apostrope on this French computer--after all they have to make room for the accent marks).
This one is a no brainer. No matter what you think of the owner`s homophobic remarks, he certainly has a right to run his business. Chicago and Boson mayors have no right trying to block him from locating hin their fair cities. If you don`t like what he says, don`t patronize the establishmen. I`d never heard of the pace before, and now I just can`t wait to chow down on the first Chicken burger when it opens in Mt. Vernon.
The fact that Vaillancarnak has resurfaced does NOT mean that I`m smoking any of the funny stuff up here, although dealer are quite active right at the metro stop just outside the library...hmmm...
Maybe the jokes would be better if I tried, but that would be wrong...not to mention illegal.
