    So they’ll get to Hollywood, only to learn that the job the movie producer had in mind was to get a piano delivered to his fancy house, which sits up at the top of an extremely long set of stairs?

    Don’t fall for the scam Laurel and Hardy did. Hal Roach staggered their contracts so they could never negotiate as a team.

    Well, with respect to their own situation, Ruthless got it half right.

    Yes! Some some more news about our furry-faced, pipe-smoking hero, the illustrious sage, Joel!!!!!!! Joel, as would be expected, has his “fingers” on the heartbeat of the situation, and aptly assesses Rufus’s meager understanding of the importance in having Joel take Hollywood by storm!

    “A cork short of an empty jug!” …. very alliterative and accurate simultaneously! I would expect nothing less from Joel!

    In the 1970s, Buono released several comedy record albums which poked fun at his large stature, The first of which was Heavy!,5 as well as a book of comic poetry called It Could Be Verse.6 He began to style himself as “the fat man from Batman.” During guest appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, he frequently recited his poetry. The most popular of his poems was Fat Man’s Prayer, a work often erroneously attributed to Dom DeLuise or Jackie Gleason. It included many widely quoted couplets such as:

    We are what we eat, said a wise old man,

    And Lord, if that’s true, I’m a garbage can!

    At oleomargarine I’ll never mutter,

    For the road to hell is spread with butter.

    And cake is cursed, and cream is awful,

    And Satan is hiding in every waffle.

    Give me this day my daily slice—

    But cut it thin and toast it twice.7
