Please do it agaaaaaaain
And agaaaaaaain. How appropriate, especially given we are about to head into the rainy season and then another hot and wet Japanese summer.
Not that I use the phrase "hot and wet" on a regular basis, but when I do, it always brings to mind a snippet of dialogue from Good Morning Vietnam, the soundtrack to which I had memorized well before seeing the actual movie. I didn't even know what the Vietnam war was but I could recite things like "It's gonna be hot and wet! That's nice if you're with a lady, but ain't no good if you're in the jungle." I could tell you it was "Time to rock it from the Delta to the D.M.Z.!" for years and the DMZ could have been the name of a mall for all I knew. My parents had a cassette tape of the soundtrack and used to play it over and over on road trips. I must have been 7 or 8 at the time but I can still sing all the songs and mouth along to the snippets of dialogue between them, the only difference being now I actually know what a poontang is.
I suppose I should give some commentary on this month's poster instead of detailing the history of my filthy mouth. The good Samaritan this month has a striking resemblance to a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, perhaps even more so in the second box where he appears to be accosting Creepy Sweepy. He even looks a bit hot in the third box, but maybe that is just in contrast to Creepy's meek facial expression. Guy just can't catch a break. Bon weekend gentle readers!
