Would you eat Evander's ear?
Would you Mikey? Tell me clear.
I would not like that ear to eat
I do not think it would taste sweet.
Ears are flavored bitter, friend,
and they've been known careers to end.
Could you eat that fleshy thing?
would you eat it in the ring?
Would you bite it on a dare
and store it in the Frigidaire?
I could not store it in the fridge.
It is mostly cartilage.
I will not bite Evander's flesh
whether frozen, fried, or fresh.
You could be tempted, this i know
If things do not the right way go.
Your tiny brain will start to shout,
"this is a way to get me out!"
I will not eat it on a dare,
i will not eat it hanging there.
even if the fight I lose
that's not a mouthful i would chewz.
Would you eat it in the ring?
Would you eat it for Don King?
Don King can ask, and ask, ask he
won't goad me "sause that is nasty.
but what of head butts from Evander?
He'll knock your noodle, you know he can, sir.
he can butt me all he likes.
That does not mean his ear I bites.
Oh no! He butted Mikey's head!
He butted it just like I said!
Bite his ear! For vengeance sake!
Nibble on it like a snake.
i would not, could not bite his ear!
it would cost me my career.
bite it, Mikey! Bite it off!
Are you starting to get soft?
OK!OK! I'll bite that thing!
I will bite it in the ring.
Hey... Tastes just like chicken from Colonel Sanders!
I like this chunk of ear Evander's.
Now I would like a second bite.
A guy gets hungry in the fight.
You bit it! Geez! You bit his ear!
Our lust for blood ain't that severe.
You need control inside the ring.
Now there's two Mikeys who'll eat anything!
One bite is fine, but two's too much.
You make us want to toss up lunch.
we shelled out big for Pay-per-view
To watch a fight, not have to spew.
You'll be fined three million smackers.
and have to refund all your backers.
They paid to see you beat him bloody.
not bite his ears that's yuchy, buddy.
Why did you bite him? What's the scoop?
Why to gnawing did you stoop?
it was anger! I saw red!
When he butted on my head!
Things just happen in the ring
When boxers snap, they do weird things.
we don't buy it. You're a pro!
The whole damn story! We must know!
OK,OK. you've earned the right.
you paid fifty bucks to watch the fight.
Why did i bite him? here's the tale---
I got a taste for it in jail.
Wow! what a story. Now tell us Mike,
What your future plans are like.
I think I'll sell off all the rights
To market various merchandise.
We'll sell action figures! What a trip!
Like "Iron Mike" with "Kung Chew" grip.
So you bite him on the ear.
That's all we'll hear about, I fear,
until some other news breaks clear
And pushes biting to the rear.
I guess we like it when we see
People biting on TV.
We only have ourselves to blame
for watching such a bloody game.
Would you decline his ear to bite
If you got paid 10 mill per fight?
Let me ! I'd bite it in the ring!
I'd bite it off! I'd eat the thing!
I'd swallow it with Gatorade--
For a tenth of what Mike got paid.
Q: Could you please explain the recent historic tobacco settlement?
A: Sure! Basically, the tobacco industry has admitted that it is killing people by the millions, and has agreed that from now on it will do this under the strict supervision of the federal government.
Q: Will there be monetary damages assessed?
A: Yes. To compensate for the immense suffering caused by its products, the tobacco industry will pay huge sums of money to the group most directly affected.
Q: Will the federal government also receive large quantities of money?
A: Of course.
Q: How will the tobacco industry obtain this money?
A: By selling more tobacco products.
Q: What if consumers stop buying tobacco products?
A: That would be very bad. That would mess up the economics of the whole thing. The government would probably have to set up an emergency task force to figure out ways to get people smoking again in order to finance the historic tobacco settlement.
Q: If the government really wants people to stop smoking, how come it doesn't just make cigarettes illegal?
A: Because people would smoke them anyway.
Q: Then how come the government makes crack cocaine illegal?
A: That is an unfair comparison. The tobacco industry is merely selling a deadly product; the crack cocaine industry is guilty of something far far worse.
Q: Failure to make large political donations??
Q: Many people started smoking because they watched classic movies in which glamorous Hollywood stars were always inhaling and exhaling vast clouds of smoke and looking totally cool. What will be done to correct this under the historic tobacco settlement?
A: By 1998, all classic movies will be digitally reprocessed by special Food and Drug Administration computers so that - to cite one example - in Casablanca, when Humphrey Bogart makes his dramatic final speech to Ingrid Bergman, he will have the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel.
Q: Whose voice will the late John Wayne have?
A: The late Lucille Ball's.
Q: What will happen to all the tobacco institute scientists, who, despite decades of dedicated research, were never able to find a single shred of evidence proving that cigarettes cause cancer?
A: At the request of the White House, they will be reassigned to the Whitewater investigation.
Q: Speaking of administration scandals, if President Clinton actually winds up in court over this Paula Jones thing, what steps will be taken to prevent the trial from turning into a grotesque and demeaning pubic spectacle?
A: Mr. Clinton's face will be covered at all times by an electronically superimposed dark blob, underneath which will be an electronic label identifying him only as "A United States President."
Q: How will the historic tobacco settlement affect the aliens whose spaceship crashed near Roswell, N.M. in 1947, and whose bodies are now being kept in top-secret government freezers?
A: Millions of dollars will be paid to their lawyers.
Q: I guess that covers it! Thanks! Smoke?
A: No, thank you. I have my own.
Farmer Joe decided his injuries from the accident were serious enough to take the trucking company (responsible for the accident) to court.
In court the trucking company's fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.
"Didn't you say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine,'" said the lawyer.
Farmer Joe responded, "Well I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the......."
"I didn't ask for any details," the lawyer interrupted, "just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'"
Farmer Joe said, "Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down the road..."
The lawyer interrupted again and said, "Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question."
By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe's answer and said to the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule Bessie."
Joe thanked the Judge and proceeded, "Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side.
I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn't want to move. However, I could hear ole Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene.
He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her then he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.
Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked at me.
He said, "Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?"
Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine
if, we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tommorow" I say "I will call on Jim"
"Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tommorow comes and tommorow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner!- yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir, Jim died today."
And thats what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
Remember to always say what you mean. If you love someone, tell them. Don't be afraid to express yourself. Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you. Beause when you decide that it is the right time, it might be too late. Seize the day. Never have regrets. And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they have helped make you the person that you are today. Pass this along to your friends. It could make a difference. The difference between doing all that you can or having regrets which may stay with you forever.
