A post inspired by Ubie's blog

An anonymous commenter on my friend Ubermilf's blog suggested her next post be about how "pencils are good to write with."

First of all, ouch. Mr. or Ms. Anonymous is going to poke out an eye with that rapier wit. Also, since Ubie responded by calling him/her a pussy, I surmised it would be up to me to answer the call for a pencil post.

Yes, I concur, "pencils are good to write with"; even when ending a sentence in a preposition. They come in especially handy when writing the obituary of anonymous negative commenters. With the pencil's convenient built-in eraser, you can make sure the obit is easy to read with nice small words so his/her semi-retarded and wholly retarded friends and family don't accidentally pay their respects at the wrong pauper's grave.

Then Ubie did a post about horrid Country and Western clothes and I immediately thought about country music legend and leisure suit enthusiast Conway Twitty.

Okay, quick poll: Which Conway Twitty do you prefer?

Young Hair Helmet Conway...


Older Man-Perm Conway?

You decide. It's too close to call as far as I'm concerned.

I'm feeling the blog love!

Is pompadour Twitty the helmet hair one?


I pick leather Twitty.

Pompadour Helmet Hair with the rhinestoned suit Twitty!

I'm a Twitty Twister!!

Blogger Jessica said...

Anonymous must be quite happy that a throwaway comment inspired such angst. Hecklers are rarely so successful.

Blogger Flounder said...

Even though the man-perm makes him look a little like Rodge from What's Happenin, I'll have to go with the helmet head.

The chops put him over the top.

Blogger Flounder said...

Leather Twitty looks too much the Hoff, Ubes.

Yes, I concur, "pencils are good to write with"; even when ending a sentence in a preposition.

i love you.

everything inspires such angst in Todd, Jessica.

Young and Older is giving me the problem, not the hair.

He looks the same age!

Blogger Princess Pointful said...

So hard to choose... helmet hair has the sideburns and the suave turtleneck, whereas perm, has, well, a man-perm and a few buttons too many undone.
I'm swooning either way.

Blogger Liv said...

I'll never be able to pick up a pencil again without thinking of this post and you. Way to go.

I'm with you, it's so hard to choose but I'll go with the helmet head.

Blogger The Stormin Mormon said...

I don't know. That perm is pretty B.A.

Blogger yellowdart said...

Ugh...i actually saw a music infomercial featuring Conrad Twitty's music in a boxed set. Creepiest. infomercial. ever.

Helmet hair w/ chops Twitty all the way.

Blogger Crackah Nonsense said...

Because a pencil would stay in the permed version of Conway's hair better, I'm going with that.

Blogger Johnny Yen said...

Oh man-- sideburns vs. seventies hair... I can't decide.

Blogger Melissa said...

with nice small words so his/her semi-retarded and wholly retarded friends

It's so wrong that I work with some very educated and intelligent people and feel this way when I have to send an email to my entire floor.

Also, I prefer neither Conway, as they both look like they spend more time doing their hair than I do.

Blogger yournamehere said...

leather Twitty looks like a castoff from the Hillbillage People.

actually, "Twitty Twisters" was the unofficial name of his groupies.

no angst this time. Ubie actually insulted him pretty good. I just didn't have anything to write about. Again.

I honestly thing that hairdo is bulletproof.

thank you for the public display of bloggy affection. If you prefer the old man perm, I'll soon be getting one.

mind your p's and q's, mister.

I think Conway looked the same every day of his adult life, but chronologically the helmet hair predates the perm.

Conway did for the turtleneck what Hitler did for the little square moustache.

please remember me as much more charming and handsome than I actually am.

he must use some honky version of Soul Glo.

I like a few of his songs, but Conway is creepy in an "uncle who touched me in a naughty place" kind of way.

that's the best answer yet, from a logical perspective.

it's still a coin flip for me.

neither Conway is as attractive as you, so you have that going for you.

Blogger Nick said...

Hey T-Diddy, did you see the link I left for you in the comments of your previous post?

Blogger The Stormin Mormon said...


Honky Soul Glo...

Blogger Tits McGee said...

Twitty rhymes with titty.

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

Pens, too, are good. WITH WHICH to write.

Just so you know.

I hate anonymous commenters!!!

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

p.s. The word "Twitty" makes me giggle uncontrollably.
