Giid Morning, Everyone! 🏍 DAREDEVIL EXTRAORDINAIRE 🏍
🎶 The Ballad of Evel Kneivel🎶 – John Culliton Mahoney 1974
I couldn’t find the lyrics for this on line….
🏍 The man was known for wild stunts, done with IMPALA speed,
Spectators loved the VISUAL image, and lined up to see his deeds…
His BOUNTY grew from SHRIMP-like stats to ones of great success,
Was he UNSURE or MODEST it was anybody’s guess.
I’m thinking tho the “K” sound, is it always more or less…?
Or did he pronounce it like that to RAMP UP HIS BUSINESS? 🏍
With no new words, yet all new anagrams, SHRIMP comes in as our oldest entry going back to 2014, and also as our newest, having last been seen just this past January 2nd, where it appeared as MHISPR. And except for a very slight tic at VISUAL, we DROVE right through our words on the way to today’s cartoon…
Today’s cartoon brings us back to the mid 1960’s, where we see the famous hair-raising stuntman, EVEL KNIEVEL https://tinyurl.com/yxamoxn2 Known for using a RAMP to catapult himself into the air and jump over objects, rumors started abounding about Evel jumping the Grand Canyon…but the rumors were spread by non other than Evel himself. He was definitely a HYPEractive guy! A very colorful character, we see him here, dressed in his signature white clothing, excited about his burgeoning BUSINESS, and his Manager is definitely going along for the RIDE. Determined to be a big success, Evel was able to…RAMP UP HIS BUSINESS…Good one, David! WHEELIE good one!
Ok…Eye candy…The entire panel is shaded beige. We see five gray cars in the background, to the left of Evel’s ramp. The Manager, is dressed in period bell-bottomed jeans with a white shirt and a black vest that has the initials “EK” embroidered at upper right. The same “EK” logo is shown on the large gold belt buckle Evel’s wearing and it can also be seen on his gold pinkie ring. Great detail, Jeff. His name and the Number “1” are engraved on his Motorcycle, as well as on the helmet he’s holding in his left hand, while his right bejeweled hand holds a walking stick. But the eye candy this morning? With both men wearing open V-necked shirts, Jeff’s drawn each of them with CHEST HAIR peeking through their collars…Now how’s that for a little HAIR Raising! So, There you have it, Folks…Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…Today’s National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day! Now thst makes me JUMP for joy! 🏍🙋🏻
