10 Things I Have In Common with Redd Foxx

19 Feb 2008


To make this more fun (and, frankly, because I don't actually have that much in common with Redd Foxx), I'll warn you that FOUR of these aren't true. See if you can pick out the lies. Careful: They're tricky!

1. Both from St. Louis.

2. Redd was born in 1922. So was my grandfather.

3. We were both well-known associates of Malcolm X's.

4. Both appreciate raunchy humor.

5. Both dedicated significant portions of our lives to Sanford & Son.

6. Both have family members named Esther, Lamont, and Grady.

7. Both alive during the period from January 11, 1969 through October 10, 1991.

8. Both have stars on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

9. Both known to have enjoyed a cold Colt 45 in the past.

10. Both released CDs entitled: "You Gotta Wash Your Ass [LIVE]."

This morning, I saw such a great photo of Redd Foxx on Bumwine.com that it inspired me to go out and buy some champipple to augment the celebration of tonight’s lunar eclipse. Thus, this is the first time I have ever commented on a quality blog under the influence of an eclipse, while fortified with champagne-ripple.
