From "The boxer"


Does anyone else think that Mike Tyson being 38 million in debt is side-splitting hilarious?


I mean, really!

geesh....thanks a million wranx!
Now I'll have that old tune in my head all day....lol.
As for Mike? He needs therapy ... lots and lots of therapy. I don't think he has one tiny blink of an idea as to how ridiculous he comes off.   Chris

was that Art Garfunkel's real hair or a perm?

Hilarious?  No.  He'll soon claim bankruptcy, which will just compound the problems of the ordinary citizen...

and Chris, now really.  Why would anyone do that on purpose?

My absolute favorite S&G song... though it saddens me to see it in conjunction with that farce of a "man"?

I have a hard time developing sympathy for anyone who can squander a relative fortune. I don't have millions, yet somehow I have managed to avoid bankruptcy.

Well, it fits in with Wayne Newton declaring bankruptcy while raising his Arabian stallions on his zillion acre estate...or O.J. pleading poverty while living the lifestyle he is "forced" to live. It seems that somewhere in time, bankruptcy meant broke...but I can't remember when.

I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles.....
