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...

If I could...

I'd have...
  • the theological mind of Jack Cottrell
  • the understanding of Revelation of Robert Lowery
  • the Bible knowledge of George L. Faull
  • the preaching passion of Ray Bennett
  • the political mind of Pat Buchanan
  • the vocabulary of William F. Buckley
  • the missional thinking of Reggie McNeal
  • the historical knowledge of Roger Chambers
  • the heart of Mrs. WTBW?

Pat Buchanan? Don't know that I'd wanna go there. Good with the rest of them, tho.

...but then you wouldn't be Willis.

Pat's been my man since back in the CNN Crossfire days of old. I'm just not down with the neocon hijacking of the conservative movement.

Oh, there are SOO many reasons why I could never be Willis! He's MUCH too much for me to dream of being! Always was. Willis IS The Man! Us mere mortals have to settle for the scraps of the shadows of greatness he condescends to leave behind.

I used to like Buchanan. I had to drop him from my hit list some time back. ("Hit list" in this case being old AM radio deejay talk, rather than mob-related.)

HOW in THEEEEEE HECK could you leave off the "Wit & Wisdom & Charisma of Neal Alligood"

I am sooooo disappointed! ha ha ha ha

I should've added the voice of Sam (the voice of RBC). Great pipes.

And yes Neal is quite witty.

Sam,

Aaron didn't mean you. He meant that I wouldn't be me. Just a slight clarification. With comment moderation enabled he did't even see your comment before he posted. I approved them simultaneously.

SammyBoy said...

Well, I could still never be you. And Mrs. Willis probably wouldn't want me to be.

I love Barry, but I'd have to go Lance Armstrong.

Personally, I think Dave Willis just as he is is pretty amazing! God blessed you with exactly what you need to be the person He wants you to be. You are a very gifted man!
