Feel Better Now, Gummer?

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Being stupid has its costs. If your lover was a dentist and you dumped her for another lady, would you still make an appointment with her for a toothache?

Marek Olszewski, 45, of London somehow thought that was a good idea.  So he booked a time with his ex-lover, 34-year-old Dentist Anna Mackowia.  Dr. Macowia thought she could remain “professional and detached” for the examination. Wrong!

She put Marek under anesthesia and then proceeded to pull out every one of his 32-teeth! She then bandaged up the dolt and sent him home.  We can only imagine Mr. Olszewski’s surprise when he took off the bandages and saw just a  mouthful of gums!

Dr. Mackowia, D.D.S. is now facing three years in prison for medical malpractice.  And Olszewski?  Sadly, he was dropped by his new girlfriend because she “couldn’t go out with a bloke who had no teeth.”

Word of the Day: Dolt (doelt); noun.  A person who is stupid and has no sense of reality.

Ali’s “Father” – Gorgeous George

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Except for me, just about everyone I knew hated Muhammad Ali. He was loud, conceited, and obnoxious.  While the good “colored” boxers like Floyd Patterson spoke quietly and acted like gentlemen, Ali was jumping around the ring screaming “I AM the GREATEST!” I figured he was just acting.

He learned the act from wrestler George Wagner.

George was a mediocre wrestler in the dull 1950’s.  Although fixed even then, wrestling matches basically consisted  of two heavy guys in black briefs sweating from rolling around on the mat.  Arenas were half empty.  Then along came “Gorgeous George” to brighten things up.  He became a “cheating, dirty villain.”

People started coming through the turnstiles just to see him get his ass kicked.  And if he did lose (rarely) he’d cry, complain, and say the other guy cheated and should be disqualified! The “perfect” sore loser.

George was an anathema to wrestling fans,  He dyed his hair blond, wore a glitzy-elegant robe, had his own valet, and told referees to “keep your filthy hands off me.” George started acting effeminate in an age when gay people were officially deemed “sexual psychopaths.”

Thousands of fans filled the auditoriums with their hatred – and their money – just to see him get beaten.  And Gorgeous George (like Liberace) cried all the way to the bank.

Word of the day: Anathema (a-NATH-e-ma) noun. A person or thing hated or loathed.
