Father's Day for Terry

I told Reba not to let the kids get me anything too expensive this year, because I was wanting us to save money for getting my car repainted at the vocational school paint shop in September. Of course, this was before I got rear-ended and so whatever I was going to save up for might get exhausted just getting the car out of the shop it the other person's insurance doesn't pay but $12.79, BUT BE THAT AS IT MAY, every dad still wants a little something to remind him of just how hot and manly he is.

So, in that vein, I would like to put in a request for some of these:

Yeah, but does it come is Husky Boy sizes? If so then sign me up. Having pants bind your legs when you're trying to kick someone in the teeth can be real annoying.

And just what kind of "action" can you expect when you're wearing action jeans?!

Finally, martial arts supply out of Oklahoma? There's only two things that come out of Oklahoma ... (etc.) I didn't know the O-K state was a hotbed of martial arts. Maybe it's a tax thing.

Once more your secrets come out. I had no idea you did any stunt fighting in Action Movies.

"Kung-fu Possum?" "Return of the Possum Dragon?"

How soon before we see you in a buddy cop movie with a brash, street-smart cop who can't play by the rules but solves all the crimes?

It has a place for waist and inseam on the order form, Marc, so I assume the legion of skilled Chinese sewing/kung-fu artisans would be able to whip some together with no trouble. If they can suspend themselves in midair doing kicks and twirls, adding a little bit of breathing room in the seat shouldn't be a problem.

As for expected action--I always expect the unexpected! So, you know, it could be picking up a penny someone dropped at the store, or a roundhouse kick to the face of a person who looks like he might be up to mischief.

As for Oklahoma, it is the birthplace of Chuck Norris. Doesn't everyone know that!?

AS FOR PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT, Skinnydan, you will be glad to know that my newest action/adventure movie Crouching Moron, Hidden Possum is set for release Christmas '07.

Pity. I would have liked to see it. But as a non-Christmas celebrant, I guess I will have to skip it.

I don't suppose they could release a Chanukah version?

Do they offer an alternative version that binds legs for those who know people too adept at kicking teeth out?

Come on now, Dan--just because it's released during Christmas doesn't mean we're gonna stuff you in a peddler's sack and fling you down the chimney! Crouching Moron, Hidden Possum is appropriate for people of all faiths and religions who like roundhouse head kicks and cool whirling nunchuck action, and may be enjoyed not only during Festivus and Saturnalia AND Chanukah, but at all times of the year.

And Jordana, I'm sure your daughter would love a pair--all you have to do is make sure you stuff her down into one pants leg, and she'll not be nearly so likely to knock out her brother's teeth.

My Father can't even lift his leg. XD

I am, as every one knows a "Action" Chef. I wonder if I could get these with say, chili peppers or better yet dark navy blue with red & white pin strips? Man oh man! I'd be the "hippoest" chef, just laying "waist" all around me.

I must let Jackie Chan know about these. He could have been twice the actor. Maybe three times.

I don't think I could handle that, KH. Three times the pathos, emotiveness, and savoir-faire of Rumble in the Bronx? Be still my beating heart.
