eehh...Good morning...I mean good evening

Ladies & Gentlemen, I wanna tell you about

an experience I had this morning at San Francisco:

You know, I'm staying at the hotel downtown and eh

I had two hours, two hours, 'til I was rendez-vouing with my, eh

my beautiful girlfriend's beautiful girlfriend

So I took a little walk outside the hotel, I walked up a street

With a name that's pretty familar to a lot of people, but not to me

But it had an old name and there was a marquee

It kinda looked like a movie marquee

Or maybe the the type of thing posted outside of a motel

or maybe even casino

But it wasn't any of those things

It was some kind of sign that belonged to an old gas station tire shop

And it was closed 'cause it was a Sunday

And it said: "Americans are slow to hostility" - Winston Churchill

And I thought ISN'T THAT something

A big marquee with the Winston Churchill quote in the middle of San Francisco

And then I went to Walgreens to find my TOM'S OF MAINE ginger-mint

FLUORIDE-FULL toothpaste, but all they had was FLUORIDE-FREE

And there was a women, at the counter, with a parrot, on her shoulder

And she said: "Yeah yeah, my parrot is 44 years old..."

And the people behind the counter at Walgreen's

and next to the register, chatted her up and they said:

"Ohh, we really like the way the red feathers are so deeply red!"

And I was like "Man, 44. NOW that's old for a parrot! Kinda old for a person!"

And the lady said, "Yeah, these types of parrots live to be into their 60's."

And I was like "Good for you," when I noticed a streaaam of parrot shit

crawling down the back of the owner's t-shirt

And I thought to myself: "Either no one noticed the parrot shit on her back

or more likely, she doesn't mind parrot shit on her back..."

And I was like: "Lady don't brush against me !"

"In fact, go home, don't buy anything at Walgreen's

Change your shirt, POTTY train your parrot, or don't go IN public!"

And then I remember how Americans are slow to hostility

and I thought: "Well maybe in a crazy town like this

you pay for the happy-Winston-Churchill-quote with the nasty parrot shit."


NAME THE MC! have fun
