Mother and Child Extension Cord?: “…What I did find that I liked a lot was this extremely cute ‘Mother and Child’ extension cord that would go quite well with my fish skeleton extension cord my friend Esther sent me a few years back.

Commentary — When I first saw this headline jump of the pages of today’s NY Post, I laughed at the ridiculousness of wasting time on such an issue. But, then my mind went into backtrack mode and scanned all my memories of Mr. Softee and his, yes, F****N obnoxious song, chime or whatever you want to call in fact. A few years back my office was situated on the second floor of midtown office building and that son of a bitch would slap his truck into park right underneath my windown from early June into September every year. Since faulty AC forced me to keep my window open for relief from the summer heat, i had that damn tune drilled into my skull for two hours a day, five days a week, nearly 4 months of the year. I can think of more lenient forms of tortune.
Besides, the tune is pure evil if you asked me. Stephen King couldn’t have asked for a better set up to story that has evil clowns swooping out of the foundations of the sidewalk and terrorizing the children of his ficticous hamlet.
In retrospect, I am no longer laughing. I stand and applause a long needed move to protect the sanity of our overburdened population. Viva Mike.
As for the dog barking element? I have have two hyperactive dogs, so I feel it improper for me to comment….
Have a wonderful day
