    You just can’t keep a good man down!
    That’s what I love about ‘El Chapo’, he’s persistent.
    Hey, El Chapo, reach out to me. I have a “Map of the Stars” brochure that I want to give you.

      Didn’t Sean Penn star in a movie called Dead Man Walking?

      • JoKeR

        I don’t think this is possible.

        I heard that Sean Penn already snorted the kilo of coke El Chapo gave him rather than using it to pay off the prision guards.

    • He’s like a Looney Toons Character.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        He’s like While E. Coyote, but with a penchant for beheadings and executions.

        • I’m of fan of Wile E. Coyote. (I’m quite serious by the way. I haven’t got much going for me but I have a certain native good taste about some things. I remember childhood days at daycare, being herded into rooms to watch cartoons. I always knew Looney Toons was awesome, and I never much liked either Disney or Sesame Street.)

            When I was a kid we used to get up early on Saturday and go down to the community club to watch old cartoons on film.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            No TV?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            At the time we had a black and white TV and no cable or VCRs.
            Most seventies cartoons were shite anyway.
            Remember Hong Kong Phooey or Grape Ape?
            Going down to the community club to watch cartoons was just something we did in order to see stuff like Heckle and Jeckle, Woody Woodpecker and Chilly Willy.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Same thing in my house.
            Out of 12 channels, 8 were watchable.
            The only 70’s cartoons I liked were Scooby Do and maybe Fat Albert.
            Grape Ape was for paste eating ‘tards.
            But stuff like Woody Woodpecker and Chilly Willy just irritated me. I couldn’t watch ’em.
            Heckle and Jeckle was like watching a couple of serial killers plotting murders.
            Odd that, I didn’t like Heckle and Jeckle, but the few times I met the Manson girls, I thought they were really swell. They used to always say what a cute little boy I was when I would drop a quarter in their hat.
            They used to hang out in front of the Safeway grocery store with some guy in a leather floppy cowboy hat playing a guitar (could have been Tex Watson) who would let me sit on his lap and try to teach me guitar chords while mom was inside getting milk and bread.
            She was sure they were OK, because they were always there, and some of the girls wore crosses.
            They didn’t start killing people until later.
            It was a different time.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            A quarter was a lot of money back then.
            You could buy a medium Slurpee with it.
            That was when they had the Slurpee machine behind the counter.
            Remember when Safeway had only ten types of vegetables and five kinds of fruit?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I remember half the grocery store being a pharmacy.
            Not terribly big. Now that you mention it, the selection musty have been abysmal.
            The quarter I always begged from my mom. I was a little too young to be trusted with my own money back then.

          • “Gimme five bees for a quarter!” you’d say.

            12 channels? Livin’ good in Cali even then, eh?

            We had 3 and they all went off shortly after midnight. One showed a drawing of an Indian’s head all night. We called it, “That really boring Indian movie”. Hell, I remember when FM came out.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            We had CTV and CBC.
            And French CBC which we used to watch late on Saturdays to see if we could see a glimpse of nudity.
            Also had KCND which was from North Dakota.
            Izzy Asper bought and moved it to Winnipeg where it became CKND and eventually Global.
            When we finally got cable ABC, NBC, CBS and PBS.as well as the local weather channel and the local access programming channel.

          • Exile1981

            We had cbc and cbc french till I hit junior high.

          • Exile1981

            I hated Chilly Willy. liked the other two and scooby doo.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’ve been looking for original Mighty Mouse cartoons for years.

          • Exile1981

            Years ago when we tossed cable tv, we bought on dvd all the original non-pc loonie toons and some other non-pc cartoons. it’s all the kids watch.

          • What’s a community club?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            In case you’re not kidding it’s that place where you go play hockey and soccer when you’re young.
            Later, it’s where you go to you’re first social for your first underage drinking.
            The fifty year old bartender doesn’t care if you look fourteen.
            Shit, a social is a Manitoba thing.
            See, we have these things called wedding socials put on by the happy couple to raise money for their wedding.
            It’s a way of arm twisting all the people they aren’t inviting to the wedding to help pay for it.
            Basically it’s just a winter party on a Saturday night when there’s nothing else to do.
            The best part of the night is when they bring out the cheese and pickles and kielbasa.

          • I wasn’t kidding. Growing up in a wholesome community must be a nightmare.

          • Xavier

            So, you’re like that Ally Sheedy character in Breakfast Club?

          • Was she the freaky goth chick?

            Eh, probably not. Anyway, I’m going to bed. Good night, sweet dreams etc.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            YES! YES! YES!
            Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were the only things worth watching.
            Disney was crap (never liked any of the “classic” Disney cartoons they were always too scary or too weird but always too long) and Sesame Street was little better than actual school.
            Road Runner Cartoons (but I wasn’t necessarily rooting for the Road Runner) and anything with Daffy Duck in it.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            The only thing I liked about Sesame Street was Grace Slick singing 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.

          • As a Tom Waits fan I love this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5X4N2exOsU

          • Xavier

            Emotional Weather is great. I love TW.

          • It seems to me, looking back on it, and having watched a few old and new bits of it, that Sesame Street was basically made for adults

            For one thing, why did they get celebrities on those shows? Little kids don’t know who the f*ck Alice Cooper or Buffy St Marie or Snoop Dogg are. These programs were clearly not designed for children but rather for their self-involved parents, who apparently couldn’t even handle hanging out with their own offspring for a few hours without being entertained by some quirky celebrity. I can’t be bothered to do the math on this but I really just blame the selfish baby-boomers, because, you know, Occam’s Razor. Those guys always suck.

            And stoners. Let’s not forget that we need to make cartoons to entertain the stoners.

            Bugs Bunny never tried to “educate me”, and I really appreciate that.

            Anyway, don’t watch this, you’ll hate the language. It’ll really offend you. It’s funny, though.
