Recipe for The Doug Fairbanks Comment:

No booze, just vitriol.

Sorry. I thought I'd try to speak for DF.

Takes practice, I suppose.

Sounded like you nailed it to me.

I happen to know Douglas Fairbanks was at a baseball game today so he probably hasn't seen today's blog entry ...

sheer happenstance delayed my inevitable response.

thank you, old boy, for posting this marvelous recipe. shortsightedly, I lost the sheet of paper on which I'd first recorded it.

you see, I've never had one. a shame, really, as it sounds like quite a bit of fun.

and thingy, you brought a smile to my face with your witty interjection. i was delighted to see that you'd embraced mytongue-in-cheek persona.

you couldn't possibly believe I'm really that way, could you?

well, thanks, chums; I hope that the remaineder of this beautiful week treats you well.

toodle-ooo !

My word verification: bullishe.

I love it.

So jealous that DF was able to take in a game. Games here in Boston are so very expensive.

The recipe forgot several ounces of charisma and a pint of athletic ability.

DF could bound about on screen like none before him and few after him.

by the way, you Mythical Monkey you, you've posted a photograph of yours truly attending a Sausage Fest.

I had to smile to get some War Bands sold, but damned if I want to stand in front of that many ment again.

A careful examination revelas that there weren't many women allowed out in the street that day. . . .
