"Cigarettes, whiskey, and wild, wild women"

Well, that's the only reason to live really...

...except for the cigarettes and whiskey parts.

It's very important to mix the three in copious quantity. Because any of the trio alone, even in moderation, will kill you.

I hope those wild women aren't so wild they don't shave their axillas, tho. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Maybe he meant that he gave all that whisky and cigarettes stuff to his wife, and that's the secret of *his* longevity.

singin: "once i was happy & had a good life
i had enough money to last me for life
but i met a gal & we went on a spree
she taught me to smoke & drink whi-i-iskey"

chorus: "oh cigarette's whiskey & wild, wild women
they'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane
cigarette's whiskey & wild, wild women
they'll drive you crazy, they'll
drive

This reminds me of a joke:

One guy sees a doctor, and is told to have a very short life expentance.

- So what can I do to live longer?

- Don't smoke, don't drink, don't eat anything sweet, salty, spicy or with any taste, don't have any sex at all, don't look at women, don't drive fast, don't go partying, don't go shopping, don't go cinema or theater, don't watch TV, don't dance, don't laugh, don't practice any sport, don't play anything, don't listen to music, don't have any fun at all. Just read the Bible, eat boiled vegetables w/o salt, drink water, sit down and stare at the horizon.

-And that'll make me live more years?

-No, but they will seem sooooo long to you...

The point in life is to die making a lot of noise, so we are remembered in an encyclopedia, or something.

Ah, and the stupid perpetuation of species. You know, giving life to other death-bound things.

Like it or not, that's what we have. Play your cards.

I'm not sure who originally wrote it (maybe it's just an old anonymous folk song, or maybe it was hank williams...) but Jim Croce does a great cover of it on his "50th Anniversary Collection". I even think that version is very old, from when he was first starting out...

You can even have a quick listen here:

Track 4, Disc 1...

Thankfully, I kicked that nasty nicotene monkey off of my back some years ago, but I'm up for the rest. I'll just substitute cigarettes with a few left-handed ones.

Also reminds me of a little joke:

Here's to the girl with the little red shoes,
She spent all my money, she drank all my booze.
She has no cherry, but that's no sin,
She still has the box the cherry came in.

ba-doomp-boomp-!crash!

(Catcalls, boos, and finally crickets, heard throughout the forum after that one.)

I learned that song while on WESTPAC in the 70s, only it went:

"Cigareets 'n' saki 'n' wild, wild hosans,

"They'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane..."

Adapt & overcome!
