As any regular reader of my blog knows, I love to answer questions. My life is an open book, although some may not be suitable for young children (or anyone with morals), but here it is for the world to see. A regular reader, Jazzy J, recently sent me an e-mail with several questions. Thank you for that good Sir. And now, it’s time to give some answers. Let’s do this.

Who is the coolest person you know?

I know so many cool people, it’s not even funny. My coworkers at the liquor store are awesome. My bro-son and his family are the best damn family a person can have and I love them to death. My old pals from the days of the Stoney Crew and of course my Montclair Mafia family, still incredible after all these years and just like a fine wine, better with time. And the Dairy Mart crew. I can’t pick just one person because I know so damn many incredible and awesome folks. The coolest of the coolies? My cat, Mouthie. I have to say that because he’s watching me and looking cute. Damn cat!

Is COVID real?

The virus itself is real, but is it as bad and dangerous as it’s said to be? I have my doubts. My own opinion is that it’s a man-made virus designed to cause fear, chaos, and mayhem and allow those who take advantage to play on the fears they themselves created and expand upon via propaganda and misinformation, and gain power and control. It’s a real virus but is being used as a political tool, a weapon to keep the people in line and keep those in power firmly in place as the elite masters. All of these protocols and mandates are not for our health or well-being. It’s all about control. ‘Nuff said!

What is the strangest rumor you’ve heard lately?

That men who are mentally challenged have larger penises than normal folks. We all know that crazy sex is the best sex, albeit the riskiest with the worst consequences, but a person I know expanded upon that the other day in a conversation that crazy guys have big dicks. It’s like what the brain might be lacking in some manner, the extras went to the genitalia and it’s bigger than the average schlong. I don’t know if this is true or not. I’ve been with some real crazies over the years and while none of them were really lacking, well except for Danny and Wayne, none of the crazies were extra huge either. Maybe I just need some more research? Hey crazy men, give me a shout. Let’s play doctor. And it’s okay if you’re straight. This is for research only and I’ll never tell. Also, I’ll rock your world. Call me.

Aside from cats, dogs, fish, or birds, what’s the most unusual pet you’ve ever had?

I’ve had hamsters (Sonny & Cher), a guinea pig (Googles), and the coolest hermit crab of all time named Tarheel. He was such a crabby little guy, but he absolutely rocked.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In all honesty, either in a wheelchair missing a leg or dead. But I refuse to accept the odds or listen to those damn doctors. I’ll be retired from the world of customer service, pounding out daily blogs and commentary here on my site to my hundreds of thousands of readers, be permanently banned from Facebook and Twitter (just like President Trump), and living in a nice little apartment with several cats and my hot pool-boy, who would also double as my caretaker and keep me happy.

Should “Pride Flags” be allowed in classrooms?

Considering that I’m a gay man, this answer may surprise you, but I would say no. There is a controversy in the news about a classroom in a middle school where the teacher has a gay pride flag displayed in his classroom and some people are upset about it. And you know what? They’re right. A pride flag at your home is cool. On a bumper sticker, it’s cool. On a t-shirt, that’s great. Hell, I have a pride flag tattooed on my leg and I have no regrets. But a school classroom is not the place for political messages of any kind and make no mistakes about it, the pride flag has been politicized to death and it no more belongs in a classroom than a BLM Flag, a Confederate Flag, A Nazi flag, political posters, pro or anti-abortion propaganda, or any of that. If it’s something that directly relates to the subject being taught, then it should be allowed, but anything that reflects the teacher’s opinions, political leanings, religious views, etc, leave it at home. The best teachers I’ve ever had, I couldn’t tell you anything about their politics, sex lives, social status, religion, etc. I was there to learn about the subject and course being taught and that’s what they taught. That’s the way it used to be and the way it should be now. I support equal rights for all regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or anything else, but leave the flags at home where they belong. The classroom, nope, no way, forget it.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Thanks to Jazzy J. for the questions. And if you have any comments, questions, or thoughts to share, just give me a shout, and let’s have a discussion. I guess I’m through here. Have a great one, stay safe, and be good. I’ll see you on the next go-round. Have a great one and never forget, it’s your duty to shake your booty. I love ya!
