Commenter of the Day: Chuck Bukowski Edition

Illustration for article titled Commenter of the Day: Chuck Bukowski Edition

We're not naming any names, but rumor has it that one Jalop once attended grad school for poetry. This only lasted about three weeks. Still, we're not too macho to admit to digging a little bit of word play every now and again. Even if poetry isn't your bag, it's hard not to like Charles Bukowski. Here's a ditty he penned in one of his last books, Septuagenarian Stew:

The important thing
is the obvious thing
that no one is saying

We mention this because man oh man is it a good lead in to today's all-star, super #1 good best Commenter...


The comment comes from — who else? — Al Navarro and it's in response to Murilee's Top 44 Lemons of the 24 Hours of LeMons post:

Okay, here's a question...if Autoblog can field a car, why can't you guys?

We didn't realize you were such a big Bukowski fan, Al. May we recommend Tales of Ordinary Madness? Especially the story titled, "The Great Zen Wedding." Of note to only me, the book was originally published as, Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions and General Tales of Ordinary Madness. Oh, and as far as a Jalopnik entry in the 24 Hours of LeMons goes, stay tuned to this channel.

You know, the man has a point. While it would be a waste of a perfectly good restorable muscle car, but you could "add lightness" to Murilee's free Torino GT by Ranchero-izing it with a cutting torch, then spend 500 clams getting it running, stencil some Save the Enzos logos on it, and have yourselves an entry that represents all this site stands for.
