My strange sense of humor

The Monkey

A guy walks in to a bar with his pet monkey. He orders a
drink and while he's drinking the monkey jumps all around
the place. The monkey grabs some olives off the bar and
eats them. Then he grabs some sliced limes and eats them.
Then he jumps on to the pool table, grabs one of the
billiard balls, sticks it in his mouth, and to everyone's
amazement, somehow swallows it whole.

The bartender screams at the guy, "Did you see what your
monkey did?"

The guy says, "No, what?"

"He just ate the cue ball off my pool table -- whole!"

"Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replied the guy. "He eats
everything in sight, the little idiot. Sorry. I'll pay for
everything." The man finishes his drink, pays his bill,
pays for the stuff the monkey ate and leaves.

Two weeks later, he's in the bar again, and his pet monkey
is with him. He orders a drink and the monkey starts
running around the bar again. While the man is finishing
his drink, the monkey finds a maraschino cherry on the
bar. He grabs it, sticks it up his butt, pulls it out and
eats it.

The bartender is disgusted. "Did you see what your
monkey did now?" he asks.

"No, what?" replied the guy.

"Well, he stuck a maraschino cherry up his butt, pulled it
out and ate it!" said the bartender.

"Yeah, that doesn't surprise me," replied the guy. He still
eats everything in sight but, ever since he swallowed that
cue ball, he measures everything first."

Quincy Verdun Show

various behinds - raspootin should try for more flattering candid shots... oh well good thing she had control of the camera

Picture of the artist and his culinary chef friend; raspootin needs to write peoples names down to remember.

Another extremely flattering shot taken by raspootin. Raspootin is hoping round about this time that no one else had a camera...

The artists friends and family - oh no raspootin sees that guy back there with the camera; hope there are no retaliation shots...

back gallery Quincy with his sister (make note again to write down names) with mr sutton in the back ground hard at work selling his stuff at the other guy's show; all is fair in love, war and the art business.

Group shot!!!
Leon(quincy's brother - youngest) "______" oldest brother Quincy "______" middle brother and "_____" sister. Dont ask raspootin why she remembered Leon's name. She must just have a selective memory when it comes to good looking dark haired men! By the by Leon's Wife "_____" damn can't remember her name was one of the best ladies rapsootin has met in a long time :)

Galerie Royale did not sell anything but we went through a case of wine so I know that at the very least everyone had a splendid time.

Take a look at Quincy's work and if ya tell me you saw it here I will give you the raspootin special friend price :) hahaha

yes life is full of unpleasant little surprises...

I was told that I should write a little something with this post. Why the picture? Because the look on that little boy's face reminds me of my how my Dad would look at me or my brother and sister whenever our hands got even near our noses. We would be "daddy we're not picking we're itching" and he would just give us "the look" the same one that boy is giving his sister. Then he would mutter something about kids being really gross.

Just made me laugh. I was having this very conversation on Sunday with a friend of mine and it made me laugh then too.

boogers and children; got a love it all... then to just keep the 'grossness going" why I said unpleasant little surprises; well that is what my mom called any errant boogies found hiding under furniture, on the wall etc. Of course that was not me; that would be the doing of Raspootin's siblings. At least to the best of my memory none of us did the truely disgusting; which would be the slight of hand; booger from nose to mouth :)
