Tasteless Jokes of the Month

Happy Belated Birthdays!
Due to extensive travel (and some recovery time following that
extensive travel), I dropped the ball and was unable to do my update last
month. That, unfortunately caused me to miss a bunch of birthday
wishes, so I will try to make up for it now.
First, a Happy Belated 50th Birthday to the host of "Remo D's Manor of
Mayhem", my good friend Remo D! I had the pleasure of meeting Remo
while I was living in California in 2012. Not only did I have the honor of
having my house used as the "set" for season 18 of The Manor, but I
also got to play a recurring character (who, oddly enough was named
"Brian Lee") on the show as well. Remo was also gracious enough to
MC my first TV taping. I can't thank you enough for all the opportunities
you have afforded me, the countless hours of horror movie talk, and the
invitation to be part of The Manor. Again, Happy Belated Birthday!
It seems that July is a birth month for a bunch of horror movie fans. I
also want to wish a Happy Belated Birthday to my good friend Roy N.
Roy, you and Remo need to meet.....the debate over horror movies
would be classic!
Also, Happy Belated Birthday to Nick G. Nick is the all-time #1 fan of all
80's horror movies. Listen up Hollywood, this guy has some great ideas
for movies...hire him already.
Finally, a very Happy Belated Birthday to Lisa M. (had to save the best for
last). I hope you enjoy the Zuni doll I sent you...just make sure it's
necklace doesn't fall off.
Till next time......drinks are on me,
