Best wishes to all our half-dead friends on this special holiday!
Be careful what you wish for this Halloween!
"Is that a hank of hair falling out of your head?"
"Do you always walk with a double-legged limp?"
"What's that goop in the corner of your eye?"
These and other similar questions are directed to fogies every day of the week. And now, we have another a top-flight television program that depicts characters such as these in action, folks who wander the streets and plains of America struggling to just get by.
At last, heroes we can identify with: people who battle skin problems, challenges to ambulation, difficulty being understood, and violent rejection by a well-armed reactionary populace.
Viva la Fogies!!
What? You say these aren't old folks? They're dead bodies, ravenous for human flesh? They're dangerous?
We don't buy it. We know our peers when we see 'em.
Does social media really bring us all together?
When is one of these pop superstars honestly going to admit their greatest musical influence was nursery rhymes?
If you didn't know it already, Hollywood doesn't have exclusive rights to horror.
Don't forget to check out the "Merchandise" link to visit the Fogies Shop at Cafe Press.
Products for daily living, special occasions, and offbeat uses we just can't quite imagine...those are up to you!
The Halloween Section offers some seasonal goodies--get 'em while they're hot!
The Fogies are so happy when their peers in Hollywood are able to let their hair down and have a good time. Clearly, this is the case for Billy Crystal, who plays an old codger who falls in love with a saucy old coot at the nursing home in "Grampires". His paramour, played by Helen Mirren, has a strange appetite for blood and a strong desire to have a long-lasting (read: eternal) relationship.
This "Funny or Die" short ranks among the most clever and hilarious of the many features that have appeared at the comedy site since its inception.
"Grampires" is quick and silly and bloody as hell. Sharpen up your fangs (or dentures) and check it out at:
When we watched all those Westerns on TV in the '50s and '60s we were greatly relieved we no longer lived in a society where everyone had to carry a gun. In those shows, people were getting shot all the time. Who needed that?
A lot can go wrong in one generation.
