Well, it’s a question. When I was little I used to ask myself what Anne Murray would do…then it became Kate Jackson. Yeah, that’s how old I am!
In any case, men can do a lot worse than to ask themselves: What Would Tom Jones Do? Think about it: rudderless milquetoasts everywhere suddenly become assertive, seductive, sweaty, ice-cool, red hot, and Welsh-American-accented!

“Brazen hormonal lather” is my new favorite term.
What’s new pusssycat?
I can feel smug once again, since I once had a Welsh accent.
Of course I was 5 at the time, but . . . .
“Brazen hormonal lather” would make a pretty good blog name, come to think of it.
Jeremy: were you wearing a black jumpsuit, cut to the waist when you typed that?
FFE, excellent. When I get my Shakespearean company off the ground you can play that guy, whatsisname with the leeks…
Oh, you know who I’m talking about. The one who was married to JR. Flue Ellen!
Yeah, she was stacked, wasn’t she?
I suppose it could have been worse for you, like asking “What Would Gordon Lightfoot Do?”
Jeez. No need to get violent Frontier.
Now I will be in a mild coma until muttering “What would Aragorn do” enough times to lull myself into a sense of zen complacency.
Hey, Rain started the Canadian “what if” bit. Besides, now I’ve found myself pondering “What Would Lorne Greene Do?”
Incidentally, I studied political theory under the great grand-nephew of the author of the original book “What Would Jesus Do?” and he wrote an updated version that kicked off the “WWJD” craze of the mid-1990’s. The few times I’ve talked to him about it, he seemed to expressed extreme bemusement at how popular Christianity managed to trivialize the concept into a mantra easily marketed on bracelets, posters, bumperstickers, t-shirts and other bric-a-brac, knickknacks, wampum, gumball machine trinkets and other stuff I’m sure Jesus really wanted to be made available to the masses.
max: you and me, that’s what he’d do!
Lorne Greene would kick ass and then wind up with a heartwarming story ending in deep belly laughs. Duh.
Damn. I thought he’d tell Hop Sing to quit his weird moon-man yammering and fix up a helping of poutine . . . .
“max: you and me, that’s what he’d do!”
Yay! Yay! Yay!
I’m sad to say that it took me a moment to ‘get’ the “T” & “M” t-shirts…looking for their “O”.
Alas, it took me awhile too. But then, there are plenty of O’s at a Tom Jones concert.
Ooo. OOOoo. ooooooOOOOOOOO!
Gee, it took one eighth of a second to get that “O.”
Either you are bad bad girls or I am a bad bad girl I cannot figure out which.
[yes i can it is all you, you are bad bad girls, wink]
What do you think I’ve been working on ever since I posted this? It takes time to watch all of LOTR, ya know.
BTW I’m working on an article comparing the French Rabbit with the Japanese. I have a LOT of research to do, but I’m not sure I’ll remember it in the morning.
I have an entire thesis comparing the American cow, the French cow, and the Swiss cow. Now I discover I have been usurped by the rabbit. Oh the humanity.
[it is not your fault, you were blogging under the influence of Viggo]
Or maybe she was transfixed by . . . . . the Welsh rarebit?
You obviously are not familiar with the Japanese Rabbit. Excuse me, just stepping out for some long-life batteries.
Clearly this is another kind of rabbit.
The Japanese rabbit
The French rabbit
Well, not intimately familiar, but conversant enough to deploy a cheesy counter-reference . . . . .
and I won’t follow with the obvious “say hello to Kitty” remark either . . . .
Yeah, it is … and now max has me intrigued … how does that work, with a cow, exactly? And do I really want to know?
Guess we’ll have to stay tuned to Rain for the latest buzz . . . .
Hey it took me three posts to even clue in you guys were talking about battery operated rabbits. We do not have that fancy stuff at the convent you know. When we say rabbit — or cow — we mean a mammal. Jeez.
After this thread, I’m calling my broker and buying Duracell stock . . . .
A technical question: whay kind of lubricant do you use with a rabbit? Hare gel?
max, cows are heavy. Doesn’t your arm get tired?
we’re all milking this for all it’s worth
I am not even calling the pun police any more I am just dialing the pun assassin it is the only way to be sure.
I seriously doubt it . . . .
Careful: she’s Nikita. She’ll go all Eastern European pun assassin punishing on your punning ass.
Holy cats. Did FFE just mock me?
Not sure why this popped up again, but the idea of TOM as catnip has become my best way of explaining the phenom. I guess we owe that to your boss? LOVED this cartoon so much the first time I saw it, I’ve saved it all this time.
Mock? No. Merely the deluded yet smug self confidence of someone who enjoys inflicting discomfort via a few overloaded synapses
Besides, I’m Bruce Campbell . . . .
Oh wow. Have you told Anita? Sheesh now I will have to fight her for you. This could get very ugly.
Just be sure and put it on YouTube. I’ll figure out a way to make it pay per view; we’ll all be rich.
Does that cover medical? Anita is wicked, she could maybe take me.
We will stage the fight in Canada. “Rumble in the Rockies” or something. No worries.
Okay you all…we’re talking Bruce Campbell…lets see, how could we make money at this?
Done to death.
Bruce…Me, Max blindfolds and a huge vat of Diet Coke and bungee cords.
Hey, this could WORK.
I’m seeing Campbell chained to the bottom of the Diet Coke vat, the Diet Coke spiked with Bacardi and limes, and you have to drink him free before he drowns. What say you?
I second the motion.
Only Max will win because she’s a world class Diet Coke Drinker.
Still, I’ll take the challange just to see her go for it.
Guess I just made an Ash of myself . . . .
What, no comments about boom stick Frontier Person?
I’m waiting for someone to say it.
“Listen up you primitive screwheads. This. Is my boom stick.”
Hey I cannot suck Coca Cola with bacardi in it, I can do the straight Diet coke with occassional side shots of vodka for courage though.
Okay, how about we do an overproof vodka float on top of the Diet Coke? Got to add some danger to the mix.
Can I bring a pet cat to help?
Oh, absolutely. A lolcat is mandatory at such events.
[Anita you do not mind if Insanity Jones is on my team do you?]
Teams? I thought this was one-on-one? How are we gonna sell a girlfight if you’ve got teams? Unless they’re dressed like rollerderby grlzzzzz.
He is just a little cat. How much trouble could he be?
Ask Dr. Evil. I don’t trust cats…
Wow that is such a coincidence I do not trust doctors.
Trust in Bast, Rain, you can do it.
Also he has these little contact lenses so you cannot see when his eyes glow.
It will be great.
I think cats dressed as rollerderby grlzzzz would sell tickets, but what do I know?
I will watch. You dress him.
No worries. What shall the other side get…a bunny in a clown costume?
We better let Anita pick. I just made off with her cat Insanity Jones who is the only house cat in recorded history to take down full grown firemen. A cat so feared, postmen will hand deliver mail instead of risking the mailbox when Insanity Jones lies by it. I have this so won.
Sounds like ANITA might need the roller grrrrl gear.
Uh, I hope the cat isn’t going to be anywhere near my nether regions . . . .
oh, and I’m old fashioned when it comes to shotgun references. I much prefer the 1917-era term “trench broom”. Kinda catchy, eh?
Got the gear!
Sure Max can double up with Insanity- I mean, as long as Bruce isn’t in firemen gear he’s okay.
Holding my breath, but do you think you could change the mixer to Coke Cherry Zero instead?
For you ” Bruce “…sure …I mean, being you’re a sport about the chains and all.
“do you think you could change the mixer to Coke Cherry Zero”
Well we could do that… how long did you say you could hold your breath again?
I’m holding mine: I just noticed my Google pagerank has gone from 5 to zero. Prepare to attack!

I live in Vancouver, where the hot tub never ices over.

That’s what it’s like, walking into a hen party.
