    Ernst “I Like Men in Uniform” Röhm would approve!

    Don’t be a Schicklgruber….

    “It’s not who you know, it’s who…” takes it up the ass.
    Nasty diseased vermin.

    I always suspected that beneath that grumpy exterior lived a sweetie pie waiting—butterfly-like—to emerge.
    “Revlon brings out the real you, honey.”

    “It’s not who you know, it’s who…
    let the dogs out.”
    would fardels bear, To groan and sweat under a weary life?”
    wants some o’ dis right here one time?”
    is always in love with Amy?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCuUVpXfb84

    With Lori Lightfoot as associate marshal– wearing her “Rona Destroyer” costume, of course.

    I finally got out of the back yard, and rode my bike uptown to see the show at the art gallery. Reasonably sure, I was, that there wouldn’t be no joonteenin’ on this side of town, and there wasn’t. There were no troglodytes, but there was a great big rainbow pride car caravan rolling down the boulevard. Imagine an endless line of Priuses very hastily decked out in rainbow anything. The cars were decorated with all the forethought that goes into putting Kleenex carnations on the cars in a wedding procession. Rainbow, rainbow, rainbow. Ribbons, bunting, plastic chinese party trash, copy machine signs taped to the doors.
    I couldn’t see anything that looked like that stereotypical gay sense of style. Nothing creative or funny. Not even a drag queen, or a guy in a dog collar. Just a bunch of fat, pasty, and very unattractive people in sad little cars. When they passed, there was rainbow litter all over the street.

    But I didn’t have to wear a mask to get in the gallery. My stone took second place. I knew that before going in, but when I saw the quality of the rest of the show, my stomach dropped a little. There was some very, very good work on display. I’d have felt honored just to display with this group.
    June, June, howl at the moon.
    Today I even got rhymes.

    Hey, “Anonymous” … Anonymous here suggesting that your offering of a more fab “Adolph” should be a panel (or homogenization (don’t get excited”)) of such based on “skin-tone”, “ethnicity”, “physical characteristics”, age, … etc. … (damn, how to name, categorize those “alt-normal”, biological “males” of the “world” based only on primary and secondary, historical traits, disregarding (but necessarily including all) diverse … ?) … May be an impossible task; something analogous to “forms” in Plato’s “Republic”. … Who can I pray to and ask for help from … if there is no god ?

    CONGRATS John!
    Now get started on the next one!

    Thanks, Ghost. The gallery has the last project. I’m a little over two months into the big rock, and nowhere near the end. It’s kickin’ my butt, and makin’ my fingers ache. (but in a good way) Progress is up every week on the blog.

    John: I’m toasting your win with champagne!

    I’m looking for the irony in the GayHitlar meme. Can’t find any. Gayze are as intolerant as the actual fascists, if a bit less well armed.

    It’s Grand Marshal, with one L.

    Marshall with two Ls is a proper name. Examples include George C. Marshall and Marshall McLuhan.

    PA Cat–
    I had not seen that picture of not my! Mayor Lightfoot. Not sure whether to thank you or curse you!
