Seminar in 'Tough'

On all fours, facing the dog, Earl drops.

Grrr, says Earl, grrr grrr!

Pit Bull with bared teeth and ready to lunge

hears Earl (grrr!), and closes its chops, turns tail.

Earl gets up, grabs a close-by beer, gulping it deep

three or four or five, and takes a breath.

Ha ha ha, he fists the can and punches it flat, 

ramming the wall until his hand bleeds.

Now, says Earl, you try.



  1. Oh, this is great. I'm scared of Earl. You're not Earl, are you?

  2. Tess,

    No. I'm the guy who doesn't commit crime expressly to avoid being put into a cell shared by Earl.


  3. Truly, I sent you an email. Hope it didn't land in your spam cache.
