In 2006, Gelly mailed me an autographed copy of Wayne Greenhaw's MY HEART IS IN THE EARTH: True Stories of Alabama and Mexico. That book really warmed my heart because it included Greenhaw's reminiscences of Kerouac, Cassady & Ginzberg in San Miguel de Allende. Wayne Greenhaw passed away today @ UAB from complications from heart surgery. He was 71.http://www.waynegreenhaw.com/index.php?page_id=259
Seeking information about WATTS & WASHINGTON
BLACKSMITH SHOP formerly located @ 811 23rd Avenue. According to the '57 Tuscaloosa City Directory, that address was occupied by Mitchell's Awning & Shade Co. along with Albert P. Lee (A.P. Lee) Real Estate. Now that block is a law office on the north corner & the Regions Bank parking lot on the south.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGdWjc5aiT0
I been meaning to finish this story about the letter to Queen from Tuscaloosa, Ala dated July 17, 1939.
This letter was written on WATTS & WASHINGTON BLACKSMITH SHOP stationary but
The BIG REASON this letter is SO important is because it contains a list of 11 dirty jokes(plus one I added which makes an even dozen) that were popular in the Tuskeeloossee Ghetto in '39.
So here we go~
I ) Isn't it a blessing,
A woman can shit without undressing.
Poor men, you, Son of a Bitches,
If you don't undress,
YOU'LL SHIT IN YOUR BRITCHES!
II ) Here's to the honorable Son of a Bitch!
His nuts rots off with the 7 year itch.
His dick hangs down like a 10 lb. hammer
Until his GOT DAM ass sings
THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER!
III )I don't give a FUCK if I never FUCK!
I don't give a FUCK if I do
Cause I'll give a FUCK and I'll take a FUCK
Cause I like FUCKING,
IV ) There was a woman from Savannah.
She FUCK herself with a BANANNA.
The BANANNA broke & she got choke.
I hope it kill her, GOT DAM HO!
V )Anybody know COCK worth $31.00.
It worth $10 to hang like it does without falling off.
It worth $10 to stretch like it does without bursting.
It worth $10 to smell like it does without spoiling.
& anybody know it got a $1.00 worth of hair!
(O.K. I just so happen to know the alternative version of that joke:
Anybody know PUSSY worth $3.00.
It worth a dollar cause you can feed it & it don't shit.
It worth a dollar cause it smell but it don't rot.
& it worth a dollar cause IT BLEED BUT IT DON'T DIE! )
VI ) Tall grows the willow.
Green grows the grass.
The better you treat a Son of a Bitch,
The more he shows his ass!
VII ) Your ass is like a church house.
Your dick is like a steeple.
Your nuts hang down like charming bells
& THE CRABS walk in like people.
VIII ) Birds do it and fly.
Dogs do it and die.
Now why can't you and I?
IX ) Pussy ain't nothing but a damn trick.
Can't nothing stand it but a dam dick.
Dick can't stand it but a few damn licks
Before it be puking like a Son of a Bitch!
X ) There was a little "ninja" (ed. note)
I asked her to let me FRIG her.
She said, "I will, won't til I get a little bigger."
She got a little bigger and I sure did frig her and
Nine months time, she had a little "ninja". (ed. note)
XI ) There was a little cracker.
I asked her to let me jack her.
She said, " I will if you give me a chew tobacco."
I gave her a chew tobacco and certainly did jack her
And nine months time she had a little cracker.
