To all of you and yours.

I am pretty sure this man was a bad guy in the Swedish version of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.’ Wait, every man in that story was a bad guy, so if you can confirm that Jussi had a penis, then yes, he’s probably a bad guy.
Murder and rape aside, happy holidays to you and yours.
How do you get to Carnage Hall?
Why do you get to Carnage Hall?
To avoid being entangled in weird rape/murder/blackmail doings in Sweden.
Don’t fix that typo. Turn it into a graphic novel instead.
Do you mean Carnegie Hall?? At least that’s what Google says. I guess you could read it either way.
Damn you auto correct…
Auto correct is like the Folger’s Crystals of technology:
“While you were away, we secretly switched your word with our word, making your statement irrelevant/incorrect/horrifying/a ‘coming out’ announcement.”
I could have used a ***SPOILER ALERT*** on that comment. I haven’t seen the movie yet and I would have liked to have been surprised that someone with a penis was the bad guy.
(Of course, the extended trailer seemed to indicate that several of the possible bad guys had penises, especially that ONE GUY. [You know the one I’m talking about.])
**Spoiler Alert** Swedish penis equals Carnage Hall.
This comment is Swedish penis free…it’s just here to augment your comment count.
“Augmented Swedish Penis – FREE!”
Drop that “Carnage Hall” bullshit and turn this into a graphic novel/email subject line.
Hahaha, I have a thing for odd subject lines these days. My current two are ‘I pooped in your bathroom’ and ‘I think my whore died.’
BTW “Carnage Hall” went straight to video, it starred the much under-appreciated Rafter Man from ‘Full Metal Jacket’ and that big-boobed hispanic space marine from ‘Aliens 4’ (or whatever). Riveting stuff.
I love Rafter Man! Now I know two movies he’s been in!
I am also stealing your subject lines. I may even combine them if it seems right. (I’m thinking ‘Letter to the Editor’ or ‘Stalker-esque email to C. or D. Cussler.)
I never thought a one-off about one of the greatest tenors ever would end up like this…
Hooray, the Internet!
I am not sure where you are going with this, but I do know a thing or two about that murdering, raping, and singing Nordic tenor of yours. Ask yourself if you’ve ever seen Jussi Bjorling and the head coach of the Bulgarian Women’s Weightlifting team in the same room at the same time…uummm…methinks not.
Also, would playing something by Robin Trower or Steely Dan or David Bowie ruin your street cred??
What street cred?
Speaking of Steely Dan, my father was a disc jockey at a radio station while in college (not the college radio station, just happened to be a disc jockey at a top forty station back when he was a college student).
He told me once that after playing Steely Dan’s Deacon Blues he received an irate phone call from an elderly woman. She demanded to know what Steely Dan and the radio station had against widows, and was very upset. My father, in between bouts of laughter tried to explain to the woman that they lyric she’d misheard was actually, “They got a name for the winners in the world.”
