WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?

I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

A little rant...

Things irritate me these days that probably shouldn't so I figure it's simply evidence that I'm getting old. For instance, what's up with all these preacher/youth minister guys triyng to look "relevant" and/or "manly?" Is there a youth minister somewhere out there without a goatee? Google "youth minister" or "youth pastor" and see for yourself. I predict that soon dreadlocks will replace the now omnipresent goatee among those trying to be "relevant" in order to reach "this generation." (Remember you read it here first at WTBW!) Of course clothes from the local thrift store will still be in vogue for years to come. But, it's not just the young guys either. How about theses mid-life crisis preacher dudes trying to look manly on their Harleys? You might as well paint Richard Simmons green and try to pass him off as the Incredible Hulk! It's false bravado and I don't get it. Maybe I'm wrong but I don't see tough guys pouring into church buildings manned with such "leaders." "Hey, I hear the preacher plays poker so I'm taking my entire family to that church this Sunday." And don't even get me started on earrings and those disc things stuck in their earlobes! Oh the irony of copying the masses while claiming eccentricity! I feel better now. Thanks.

Everyone needs to rant every now and then. Glad you got it off your chest. So do I need to shave my gotee now and sell my Harley? Oh and I am canceling my appt. at the ear piercing place after I finish this post. :)

Have a good one brother!

Amen brother! We're not gonna win men with a bunch of limp-wristed, effeminate sissies!

I do have a motorcycle though. It's a 1982 Honda, so I guess I won't be accused of trying to be cool.

When fat and balding come into vogue, I'll be ahead of the curve!
