    Me, I've got the good sense and dignity to never drink and post and remember it.

    You are right beside @janitor as the greatest classic poster of all time.

    If only we could combine his abundance of knowledge with my militant lack of knowledge and certainty of strangely fluid opinions, together we'd make a pretty mediocre poster. Maybe even a better poster.

    The only thing more impressive than Norton's body punching in that clip is Ali's insane endurance. Norton said punching Ali was like hitting a tire or something to that effect. Ali easily had top 5 one of the most resilient bodies in HW history against punches to the mid section.

    As for Norton, I would say he's very underrated and a superb body puncher but I wouldn't say the best.

    Hitting Ali in the body or on the arms was like hitting a piece of cement.

    I’ve said this MANY times and I’ll say it again - for better or worse you and @Rumsfeld are to blame for me being here. Ive been reading your posts since I was 14-15? I believe.

    To be fair, you have had your hiccups but I do enjoy your posts.

    They’re not to be sneezed at - even the ones I don’t understand - (Pssst, that’s a secret, I always pretend that I understand ALL of your posts - I don’t ever want to be accused of not being jiggly with it - no amount of abstract is beyond me).

    In fact, if anyone accuses me of not being conversant with the abstract, I’ll cut off my left ear to prove them wrong. Excuse me? What’s that? Oh, okay, Vincent was an Impressionist. Thanks for the heads up - that was a close one. Phew.

    Anyway, if Gary Larson posted to this forum, he would be YOU - unless he is YOU or YOU are him. You may well be Boxed Larson, or Gary Ears, if you prefer.

    Well the ‘shrooms are beginning to wear off - so best I exit, stage left.

    Oh, one last thing, I’m not a superficial attention seeking ***** whatsoever but please don’t forget to leave a like. Donations are also welcome.

    They say that van Gogh and Rich Little were separated at birth. Quasimodo predicted all this.

    Quasimodo? That name rings a bell.

    Sorry to correct you but it was Quasi’s “Kuato”hump that made all the predictions.

    Quasi shamelessly took all credit for same.

    Behind every 1/2 man, there’s a 1/16th man calling all the shots.

    Some people noticed Quasi’s lovely manly hump change its position on Quasi’s back from time to time - but they were simply too afraid to question him on it.
