3.  this morning about 3:30, i was working out at ANYTIME FITNESS, and i was watching the movie “BOWFINGER” starring EDDIE MURPHY and STEVE MARTIN…pretty funny movie…didn’t do much at the box office….however, actor BARRY NEWMAN was in the movie, and i hadn’t seen him in quite some time…i used to love his tv show “PETROCELLI.”

a cowboy walks into a church and asks the church secretary if he could speak to the “head pig of the trough.”  the secretary was shocked and told the guy that they have nothing but respect for their pastor, and they don’t talk to him like that.  the cowboy told her, “well, that’s too bad…i was just going to drop off a donation of $650,000 dollars to the church.”  the secretary paused and said, “HANG ON, I THINK I SEE THE OLD SOW COMING DOWN THE HALL RIGHT NOW.”
