Actually, Jimmy James was just covering for Adam West.
 
2014-07-28 09:41:34 AM  
Jimmy James was also Deep Throat

Glad we have someone else who knew the true story.

Leverage put that one to bed for me. D.B. cooper was Remo Williams.

From highjacker to operating an all-news radio station?

Seems unlikely, but it's possible.

The original title of this book was ''Jimmy James, Capitalist Lion Tamer' but I see now that it's... 'Jimmy James, Macho Business Donkey Wrestler'... you know what it is... I had the book translated in to Japanese then back in again into English. Macho Business Donkey Wrestler... well there you go... it's got kind of a ring to it don't it? I wanted to read from chapter three, which is the story of my first rise to financial prominence.

I had a small house of brokerage on Wall Street... many days no business come to my hut... my hut... but Jimmy has fear? A thousand times no. I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey strong bowels were girded with strength like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo... dung. Glorious sunset of my heart was fading. Soon the super karate monkey death car would park in my space. But Jimmy has fancy plans... and pants to match. The monkey clown horrible karate round and yummy like cute small baby chick would beat the donkey."

It seems like every couple years there's someone new who is successfully able to get press for a new book exposing the truth behind DB Cooper, or revealing what happened to Jimmy Hoffa, or who really shot JFK. You'd think after 40 or 50 years every possible angle for these conspiracies would have been covered but nope, someone new always comes our of the woodwork.

"The Citizen Kane of bad movies". Dammit, now I want to see it.

Or someone whose conveniently recently deceased father/uncle was the Zodiac killer.

Watch it in a group.  It is hilariously bad.

I've never seen the movie, but any time someone mentions this guy, I end up having to watch this Dubstep song of the movie.

Not a fan of the movie or Dubstep, but there's something horribly hypnotic about the whole thing.

It's definitely worth a watch. Just get ready; there are three sudden and awkward sex scenes in the first 20 minutes.

Thanks for that

That episode and the WKRP show where Johny Fever is running from the "Phone Cops" are tied for first place in my personal opinion of best TV show ever aired..

Keep thinking it was Jimmy James.  (It was actually one of the well-dressed men in the picture below)

XKCD is how you spell "humorless" in Welsh. I'm certain of it.

I second this. Get drunk and/or stoned too. Adds to the general feeling of wtf.

Yeah... I brought it for a bad movie night, and everybody else thought I was trying to show them porn when that happened.

Actually he's at least part Latino iirc: Mark Cardenas?

Might be wrong...

And now I know that any man with crazy super animal powers is humorless... in English!

News Radio was great until that batshiat insane coontenbaggen killed the wonderful Phil Hartman.

Gazizza, dilznoofuses, Bill McNeal saying get with the crizappy taste of Rocket Fuel Malt Liquor.  Rocket Fuel's got the upstate prison flavor that keeps you ugly all night long! So when you wanna get sick, remember-nothin' makes yo' feet stank like Rocket Fuel Malt Liquor! Damn, it's crizappy!!

Everyone needs a hobby, I guess?

I mean, people are still writing Star Wars fanfiction and publishing it, and pretty much every plot-line that's ever been written had already been covered about 4 times by the 7th licensed one.  Clearly repetition doesn't bother people that just enjoy reading about a central concept.

Heck, people are still coming up with new angles on and writing new books about Jack the Ripper.
