Pen strikes again

(RIP: 12-30-1938 — 6-2-2008)

Never saw him play, mostly know Bo Diddley as a reference in Dylan's "From a Buick 6," but you have to hand it to a guy who came up with this rendition of Woody Guthrie's "Some men will rob you with a six-gun and some with a fountain pen" line:

"I am owed. I've never got paid. A dude with a pencil is worse than a cat with a machine gun."

Daisy, a new cultural hero for you and the UFU.

While we certainly agree that humans with pencils are far more dangerous, it should be noted that felis silvestris catus with any kind of automatic weapon is nothing to sneeze at. As a charter member of UFU I feel brazen enough to end the preceding sentence with a preposition.
