It just hit me all of a sudden… •••• is the same age I was when I first discovered the glory of Howard Stern. Somewhere there are photographs of me wearing sunglasses and a long, curly black wig, my little fist clenching the neck of a rubber chicken. ••••’s grandfather took those pictures to show to people at work. At the time, I didn’t understand the significance of the rubber chicken.
And to think, last night I was giving the kid a hard time about liking Super Samarai Power Rangers. I told him that crap is one of the leading causes of brain damage in children under the age of ten. I don’t think he believed me, though it’s probably the truth.
