My name is Cecil, I play the ukulele…

April 5, 2010

Hey there, Gorgeous! You come to this bar often?

CHINA/I myself make this scene a couple times a week. Gotta spread myself around where the hot chicks are, am I right?

Yo Joey! My usual! Double Crème de Menthe on the rocks!

Anyhoo, my name’s Cecil. I’m a Leo, I play the ukulele, and I’ve been to ALL five of the the Great Lakes.

I sell homemade lunch meat door-to-door. It’s a good living, Cutie-Pie.

Oh, this outfit? It’s IMPORTED. From China, like everything I wear. You can’t get stuff like this anyplace else, unless you’re in a “Star Trek” movie.

I’ll tell you one thing, Honey, when I ring a doorbell dressed like this, that lunch meat practically sells itself!

You probably won’t believe this, Blondie, but this suit didn’t even set me back that much.

Of course, it does cost me $4,200 to get the trousers pressed….

The good thing about those pants Unca is they act as a heat sink to dissipate the knee to knee friction.
