Tell me about the rabbits again, George.

or…Large men and the persistence of the Lennie Small stereotype.

I’m a big man, and a strong one as well, so why do people who don’t know me refer to me as a gentle giant?  I’m just a regular guy.  It seems that every few weeks I get called a gentle giant; it really annoys me.

John Steinbeck, I hate you.

I once had a job where I was paired up with a man 18 inches shorter than I am.  We were called Mutt and Jeff by coworkers; thankfully it wasn’t Len and George.

    Congratulations on the new blog. Awesome writing! I have to say that you’re the best writer I know. Hey, did you know that blog owners can edit comments?

    Yes, but it’s considered very poor etiquette… But no, really, you ARE an amazing writer. Really very very good…

      Ahhhh, an Ego massage….or would it be a Superego massage?

      Other than my shameless editing of the comment left by my wife, Janet, I think I would only edit comments I found offensive; I would certainly mention that the comment was censored.

      The bad joke I made by editing Janet’s comment is a stolen idea. I once had a textbook whose dedication went something along the lines of this:

      This work is dedicated to my dear, beautiful wife. She gives everything and asks for nothing…and writes my dedications.

      By the way: Never accept Id massages from strangers 😉
