I was going to write a song about Frankie Four-Fingaz and Tommy Two Times (Two Times).

Then I changed my mind.

I ain' know, but "Put Him In The Bathroom" coulda been, like, a hit.

Depending, of course, on the situation.

There's a local guy who's a bit off, named Tommy, who tends to repeat himself. Very loudly, followed by a whisper (a whisper). So naturally, he became known as Tommy Two-times. I, being unaware of the reference for whatever reason (I'd seen Goodfellas, apparently that bit didn't stick), eventually incorporated him into a short story, which I then brought to a craft of fiction class for critique. Much confusion and accusations of hack-iness ensued.

Point of Order-- The movie I was riffing off of was called "A Bronx Tale."

But, your story is very funny. You should go back to the group with a copped Hemingway story featuring a mackinaw jacket, like Danny Bonaduci did in that episode of "Partridge Family" where Susan Dey is the student teacher giving Danny bad grades for no reason...

I amember when David the C wrote a song and Danny the Douchey heard it in his sleep thru the heat ducts, and the episode was kinda a cop on the "He's So Fine" case, what I think George lost.

For just a little while I dreamed of Shirley Jones, but usually dug the big sis more, BTW. :twisted:

Oh wow, now I'm really confused. Does it count as copping if you can't even remember from where you were unaware you'd copped it?

I'm certain I probably ain't know.
