A few weeks back, I posted about a YouTube series called The Wonderful World of Wally Wipeouts, featuring prank callers to a talk show hosted by the late west-coast conservative-talk also-ran Wally George. There are something like thirteen entries in the series, and I've been just clicking on a random one here and there when I've needed a good laugh. Today, I landed on Volume 8, which proved to have that little something that elevates the great to the sublime. Things like this occur in life: it can be a perfectly prepared meal, or a subway that pulls in exactly as you approach the platform, any little thing like that. In this case, it's the following bit of dialogue from the second caller in the video: "First off, let me introduce myself to you. My name is, um, B.J. Gooberslobber the second." Trust me, reading it here before watching has not ruined the joke; hearing is believing.
I think I've finally found me a pen name.
