The Magazine Swap

Since the dawn of Buddy Nights way back in the early 1980s the tradition of the magazine swap formed.

Hoag gives me his magazines....I give him mine.

He usually gives me GQ (it figures), Esquire, Details (it figures), maybe Road and Track, Mens Adventure (it figures), and once in a while some animal related magazine. For the most part pretty good reading.

Over the years I'd give him New York, Stuff, Premiere, Entertainment Weekly, Maxim, National Geographic and so forth. All pretty good stuff.

Last night Hoag gave me something called Male Vogue.

And that will never happen again.

PS
Last night Theresa tried to give me her copy of Newsweek but it gave me the same feeling as eating fried dough while spinning out of control on a Tilt-A-Whirl on a hot humid day.

That's why x-ray vision is the best super-power.

You can always tell a magazine that Hoagy will like....the Table Of Contents is usually on page 70 and the first 69 pages are Cole Hahn shoe ads.

Oh, that dapper Hoagy!

I was gonna say...oh, that fruity Hoagy!

Downtown Hoagy Brown

Lois Lane said...

Wubba wubba Hoagy!

Bemisdown said...

He really is a "fancy lad," isn't he?

I Ain't No Oprah said...

In my life I've bought maybe 100 pair of shoes. Hoagy has probably bought at least 1500 pair.

Fancy lad indeed!

(Downtown Hoagy Brown just might be the funniest comment ever on this blog...nicely done!)

Damn song's stuck in my head now, though.

I'll remember this, Clinky.

I Ain't No Oprah said...

What song?

cake said...

It made me think of a song, which is now stuck in my head.

I'm not telling you which one.

Please go back to making fun of the Fancy Lad...I'll just be over here, singing to myself.

Tough crowd today.

"It made me think of a song, which is now stuck in my head."

Big Bad Leroy Brown? because that's what's stuck in my head now.

cake said...

THANK YOU, Bacon Ace...I think I love you now, too.

My vote for the mystery song is "Earth Girls Are Easy."

-- Lamont Cranston

Lois Lane said...

My guess was "Sweet Georgia Brown."

I Ain't No Oprah said...

I think she just got Downtown Julie Brown confused with Bad Bad Leroy Brown. She's as dumb as Hoag is fancy.

Dumbtown Cakey Brown.

At least I ain't dull.

Hoagy Eye for the No Oprah Guy

Lois Lane said...

I just realized that today this blog has given Downtown Julie Brown more press than she's seen in the last 15 years.

Her agent should really be thankful Hoagy likes shoes so much.

Ah, the power of fine footwear!

I bet if you Google "Downtown Julie Brown" tomorrow, this blog will show up near the top of the results. HA!

::still humming that damn song::

I don't know what's worse:

A) The fact that it isn't

or
B) The fact that I was bored enough to check

*sigh*
