The "Other" Real Sam Johnson Show

Out of sheer bordom oday and not wanting to write about Briteny and Kevin breaking up, Or Elton John in a commitment ceremony to his long time love, I decided to finally write about my alleged namesake. The first one of you who says, "You're gonna write about jackasses" gets a poke in the snoot.

I knew that the man has a brilliant writer, but I never knew he suffered for his work. The man was penniless for a long time and had Tourette's Syndrome. It's interesting that aalong withtheh name, we also have a few things in common, which is kinda cool. He also had the best quotes as well...
"No man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money."
On second marriages: "The triumph of hope over experience."
"Sir, I have found you an argument; but I am not obliged to find you an understanding."

Okay, they aren't "Caddyshack" quoteable, but back then they meant something to alot of folks. I don't think any of my writing is gonna make you go off and repeat it to anyone else, but I do the best that I can. Here's hoping that I can at least live up to the man's name and do well putting down these words. I know today ain't a great post, but at least I put something down for you to read.
