  1. Mel: I love it… you have completely redeemed yourself, brother, with this spoof… it looks damned good… why aren’t Danny Glover and I in it along with you…finger lickin’ good! AB

    • I posted it back in 2009, but I thought it deserved to be re-aired. It’s a classic.

  2. I have read the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter book. Ridiculous, of course, but kind of fun as long as you understand and acknowledge the ridiculousness. It’s a quick read. You can get through it in a day.

    • I loved how it seemed to match up with the history in every aspect so much that it made sense. It was such a fun leisure read.

  3. It’s hysterical! Thanks, Kevin. As for the Abraham Lincoln book, while I’m still not sure if I want to read it, I don’t have problems with books that are clear that they are not pretending to be historically accurate.

  4. Somewhere, Ron Maxwell looks up from a stupor and wonders the possibilities….Gone With The Wiener.
