Although a few experts believe his mash notes to LadyBird have certain lasting qualities, there is absolutely no justification for his "They all call me Tommy, or Why I fear the Prophet." Upon being arrested for indecent exposure (he appeared fully clothed at a beach party), through the generosity of Brother Stan he was allowed to roam on the grounds of our home town... etc. He held frequent soliloquies on his great failure in life: Why is there not a Tommy in every home? Early last year his body was discovered, wrapped tightly around a water polo ball. The attending coroner explained it was probably the shock of stopping something that killed him.

|Dr. Albert Ellis:||He used techniques discarded in the bronze age; like a rabbit he loved a lot but not too well|
|Stanley Mohammed:||He was a man of too many X.S. who we let imagine he actually did stop a water polo ball (I can't explain his plans for fear of tipping of S.M.E.R.S.H., T.H.R.U.S.H. and all them dirty white racists)|
|Dr. Max Rafferty:||I think I made it clear to Mr. Savic that filthy (Supt. of Public Educ. of Calif.) speech movements are out!|
