Introduction In my head there are people and animals and buses and things so I take a pencil and draw them out. Sometimes my cat Edsel makes this face like he knows something I don't and I lock him in the closet for a few days 'til he stops it. If I can't find a pencil and paper, I'll go knocking on neighbors doors and ask if I can borrow some, and last week when I went outside there was a big stack of paper and pencils and it wasn't even Christmas! I once drew a picture of a horse's butt so real that a friend said it smelled just like a real one (that is if I had one, a friend that is). When I get a drawing job I like to put on my lucky blue cap and drink six big glasses of whiskey and punch, and then I stare at the paper so hard my eyes hurt. This is how I get all my great ideas- once I had three great ideas in a row and passed out. Thank you for your consideration.
Interests 1. I can write but I can not read, 2. I served three (teevee dinner) tours of duty in the armed forces. WWII, Vietnam and Salisbury Steak, 3. I learned Roman Greco wrestling from our 19th president Rutherford "smoke 'em if you got 'em" Hayes, 4. I have never ONCE eaten a bicycle, 5. I have personally "checked off" 27 animals from the endangered species list, including the dodo, the passenger pigeon, the missing link and the Mexican painted zeburro, 6. I have a life-size statue of Oprah's long-time fiance, Stedman Graham, molded entirely of bleu cheese, wax peppers and licorice wheels, 7. I once sat through an entire motion picture... twice!, 8. I have never been declared dead. Well, never LEGALLY dead, 9. I was one of the founding members of the Beatles, but was asked to leave the group upon suggesting we move to Branson, change our name to the Boon Johnny's and get more "with it", 10. I once worked as a street sign for 11 years, 11. I am "deathly" allergic to poison, 12. My birth name is Bill Cosby and I once had a hit Saturday morning cartoon series wherein my best friend was a rotund chap with an eating disorder and we played rousing skiffle music in piles of rubbish, 13. I often enjoy a light snack in between meals. Believe It or DON'T!, 14. I've never been to outer space, although I have eaten a Moon Pie. It's most likely the same experience, 15. My only means of transportation is a chauffeured wheelbarrow, 16. I was raised in a log cabin by a family of goats and I first learned to speak "human" when I was rescued by an over zealous door-to-door Oreck salesman, 17. I once killed a man, simply for snoring too loud. Wait, that wasn't me (but don't think I won't!), 18. I am now able to dress myself MOST every time!, 19. I have a rare collection of junk emails from around the world, 20. I invented and own a patent on the word "screwy, " the smell of "tires burning" and the sound of "no one laughing"
