Earl or Fast Larry?

Earl or Fast Larry?

Post by Scott Davi » Thu, 30 Mar 2006 12:35:03


Willie Mosconi, Johnny Archer and Earl Strickland are standing at the throne
of heaven.  God looks at them and says, "Before granting you a place at my
side, I must ask you what you believe.

God looks at Willie and asks: "What do you believe?"

Willie thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, "I believe in
hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I
was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my fans."

God can't help but see the essential goodness of Mosconi, and offers him a
seat on His left.

Then God turns to Archer and says, "What do you believe?"

Johnny says, "Win or lose, I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor
are the fundamentals of life. Like Willie, I believe in hard work.   I've
been lucky, too, but I've always tried to be a true sportsman, both on and
off the table."

God is greatly moved by Johnny's modest southern eloquence and offers him a
seat on his right and a piece of pie.

Finally, God turns to Strickland: "And you, Earl, what do you believe?"

Earl replies, "I believe you're in my seat."

Funny, but how come Willie didn't get any pie?

Huh! Did you pay pltrgyst to play straight man, or did he blunder into that
one on his own? If the latter, he must have been drinking even more wine
than Bill O, as that doesn't happen very often.

 I probably should have said "Earl only knows". Or that Willie didn't finish
his broccoli ...

By the way, did you mean to imply that pltrgyst is only PLAYING straight?
How could you, sir!  Shades of Fast Larry's mis-spelled slurs!

Guess I'll have to get me a piece of jwp at Valley Forge next year.

anyone else...)
