    2. Reminds me of the Kinky Friedman story about the rich Texan and poor Mexican praying side by side in church. The Texan listens to the Mexican enumerating his problems for a while then takes a hundred dollar bill from his wallet and stuffs it in the poor man's breast pocket. "Don't you go botherin' Jesus with any of that shit, now."

    1. Oh well, wrong again. On the bright side the actual baton is better than my other thought .. a salmon with Big Ecks face on it.

    2. It should have been a polisman's baton for cunning stunts.

    2. I can see why you like them - more than a nod to their Uncle Tom.

    3. Strangely hadn't thought of that, but now you mention it.. They are really good live.

      Mick, if I hadn't Google to hand I'd be asking who's Estelle Getty? Thanks for the disclaimer though; far gone maybe, but not ready for re-incarnation just yet. :0)
