    I'm almost certain it's Orangejello and Lemonjello (no lime) because they were pronounced o-RON-gelo and le-MON-gelo. And pretty sure it's spelled Potatus Fry. Someone with a copy of the book on hand needs to check those for me.

    Lemonjello and Orangejello.

    You Gotta Play Hurt is my favorite Jenkins book. Actually worked up the nerve to ask him to autograph my copy a few years ago at a speaking engagement and he was kind enough to do so.

    Hunter Thompson dropped the N-word in his copy on occasion. Never heard anyone rip him for that.

    Nothing will top the TCU backfield of Tonsillitis Johnson and Artis Toothis.

    Congrats to Dan Jenkins on an honor well-deserved.

    Likewise. I hit him up at one of the PGA's I worked. He was very nice about it.

    But I'm almost positive it's Orangejello and Limejello.

    That would be the infamous "NRL, NRR, WBKP." And yes, I know I'm missing a step that eludes me right now.

    From page 199 in your paperback edition, the three rules a senior citizen must live by:
    1. Never pass up an opportunity to take a piss.
    2. Never trust your first hard-on in the morning.
    3. Never trust a fart.

    Also on 199, Orangejello and Limejello.

    "God DAMN that cocksucking motherfucker!" I yelled into the phone as Jeannie sat up in bed with alarm. "The big tamale? The whole enchilada? With my name on it? Are you fucking kidding me?"

    I knocked over a chair. "Charlotte, tell that chinless son of a bitch something for me! I mean it! Tell him when I get back to New York, I'm gonna get a glass-bottom car so I can see the look on his fucking face when I run over him!"

    I forgot about Artis Toothis.

    Should have found my Climpson media guide and looked up Potatus Fry.

    I seriously almost made You Gotta Play Hurt requried reading for my original course a few years back. His two buddies in the book, Furman Bisher and Mike Lupica - right? I can't remember their names. Dub and Richie?
