How To
Think Like
A Millionaire

Do we really want to think like a millionaire? If so, which one:
  • J. P. Morgan?
  • John D. Rockefeller?
  • Henry Ford?
  • Donald Trump?
  • H. Ross Perot?
  • The nit-wits running Pacific Lumber, chopping down all our redwoods?
  • The creeps who just built those repulsive townhouses up on the hill where I used to run and play and lie under the stars in the fields at night?
  • The guys who own Cox Cable and jack up the fees, what the traffic will bear, every two or three months?
  • The guys who own Fox Television, giving our children (and our children's children) between fifty and sixty bloody, graphic, in full-color murders a week?
  • Snoop Doggy Dogg?
Which millionaire do you want to think like?

Speaking of Snoop Doggy Dogg, our friend Charles Krafft once showed his Disasterware® --- Delftware plates with portrayals of the likes of the Hurricane of 1928, the explosion of the Hindenburg, the sinking of the Andrea Doria --- at Slovenia's Ministry of Defense, Department of Protocol in Ljubljana. It was entitled "The Porcelain War Museum Project."

They provided an army band. Charlie was to select the music. He wanted someone to transcribe Mr. Dogg's music for coronet, trumpet, trombone, and tuba. One song he's especially fond of goes,

    Snoop Doggy, Do-owww-ohhhh-oggg (the bomb)
    Snoop Doggy, Do-owww-ohhhh-oggg
    Do-do-do-do, doo-doo-doo-da-dahhh! (the bomb)...
    bowwowwowyippyyo (the bomb)
    Doggy Dogg, Doggy Dogg, Doggy Dogg
    Yeah yeah (Dog) I know his name
    C'mon Snoopy, c'mon Snoopy (the bomb)
    And the Dogg Pound
    Snoopy Dogg (the bomb) Snoopy Dogg
    Snoopy Dogg (Dog)
    (Dog, nasty dog, doggy dog)

Can you imagine that in the style of John Philip Sousa?
