    “and then … the Evil Skip-Monster….”


  2. - Spliff - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:06 am:

    And there I was in this dark alley, cornered by the Evil Skip Saviano …. and who should appear to vanquish him … my savior … Speaker Madigan. But don’t think I don’t keep one eye looking over my shoulder at all times!

    “So, I slowly went towards the Apple Pie …”


  4. - Just saying - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:08 am:

    We’re going inside of ‘em, we’re going outside of ‘em - inside of ‘em outside of ‘em -
    and when we get ‘em on the run once, we’re going to keep ‘em on the run.

    And we’re not going to pass unless their secondary comes up too close.

    But, don’t forget, men - when we get ‘em on the run, we’re going to go, go, go, go!

    And we aren’t going to stop until we go over that goal line!

    And don’t forget, men - today is the day, we’re going to win.

    They can’t lick us, and the best time to go.

    The first who’s gonna, men, go in there and FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!
    What do you say, men!

    “And believe it or not, there was a time when I could have sent all of you to college for free, and all you had to do was agree ‘to live’ (wink, wink) in a house on the 4500 block of South Avers Avenue — but enough about ‘Jaws’ Giorango and me . . .”


  10. - Ray del Camino - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:11 am:

    - Ray del Camino -,

    Usually people may say “Great minds”, but I will spare you the burden to being linked to my Dopiness! I am sure yours was better.

    So, kids, this is how we do it on the west side: Gangnam Style.


  16. - WRC - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:21 am:

    Only for that lawsuit Avila filed, I would have been a water reclamation commissioner and a state senator, two jobs, two pensions, darn him.


  17. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:21 am:

    “I know, I never have seen him laugh either! So, I went right behind Speaker Madigan …”


  18. - OneMan - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:23 am:

    Ok I can’t give out scholarships anymore, but who wants to wrestle for a patronage job?


  19. - OneMan - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:24 am:

    Kids what I do if I don’t like an assembly is clap my hands loudly and begin yelling… That has worked for me.

    “What I’m trying to tell you school children is that what you read in school about how-a-bill-becomes law isn’t exactly how things work in Springfield … you see, there’s a special table at Saputo’s that you need to stop by to shake the Speaker’s hand …”


  22. - Siriusly - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:29 am:

    So I said to Dan. “Maybe you should drop the hyphen.” You kids know what a hyphen is right ?


  23. - Anonimo - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:32 am:

    “Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re probably gonna find out, as you go out there, that you’re not gonna amount to Juan Squat!!” You’re gonna end up eating a steady diet of Cicero government cheese, and living in a van down by the river! Now, young man, what do you want to do with your life?”


  24. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:37 am:

    No, I’m not the one that took a bribe, carried a gun on an airplane, or had some shady real estate deals. These are small, minor league offenses - let me show you how we do it in Cicero.

(Translation: Listen if all of you can stay on Mike Madigan’s good side- you too can score a contract of $68k/year to translate the fanfare for the whites!)


  29. - Todd - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 9:51 am:

    No really, the chupacabra was this big. . . with fangs a nashing and claws . . .


  30. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Dec 11, 12 @ 10:09 am:

    “Then … one foggy …Christmas Eve …Santa …Santa!… He came to say … He said, Marty, that me … ‘Marty, with your voice so bold, … won’t you come in from the cold?’ …”

    Rich has put me in “Time-Out” before…I then slept in the garage for a week and only ate cold food for Penance. It was a tough week.
