    I guess Billy and Dusty didn’t want to ruin their image. Alfred Yankovic changed his image by going from glasses and a mustache to LASIK surgery and no mustache.

    I was listening to ZZ Top back when their beards were short.

    I had a teacher who came in one day with his beard shaved off. We thought it was a substitute.

    He took opium (known as laudanum) as a pain killer which was quite common in his era.

    If he became addicted at all, there is some dispute, he was in the category of what we would call addicted-to-prescription-drugs.

    As a side note, Sherlock Holmes was searching for Lascar, the owner of the opium den, in “The Man With The Twisted Lip.”

    I can’t post the video, because it “isn’t available at your location,” but here is a quote from that sketch.

    Nick DiPaolo: For $6 Million

    The Gillette company offered ZZ Top, the rock group, $6 million bucks to shave their beards on a national TV commercial, and they turned it down. Hey folks, for $6 million bucks, I’d let some guy with a nervous condition shave my ass with a bolo knife. Give Katharine Hepburn three cups of black coffee, and let her chase me with a weed whacker for a half hour.

    Actually he wrote about a young girl he knew who had some very serious mental health issues. He made a story about her ramblings and hallucinations.

    @stomps

    Frank Beard has a moustache, though at some point he grew a beard.

    How could they tell that the cat knew it was being X-rayed?

    @ alananda Het was addicted to mathematics.
    Hmm, AIWS must be the reason I keep over eating. I keep thinking my plate is much smaller than it really is…

    I suppose the cat reacted adversely, as by running out of range of the x-ray. Of course, I’m sure the cat didn’t know what exactly was happening.
