•••••••••••••••••••••ft* SOME BONE DOCTOR came out with the statement there is no physical reason why a girl going south should wiggle so on the north. The doc may know all about bones but he isn't too good on, the one connected to the neck bone. That one houses what a woman uses for brains which is mostly intuition and just "because" as the main ingredient. Sure, the Old Goat is aware a woman has brains but they sure don't use them much particularly when picking out some poor male to harness up with. And the wiggle on the north is part of tne bait. The Chinese used to bind the feet of little girls to warp them so they couldn't walk without a wiggle that was more of a wobble. High heels do the same thing except not so painfully, though maybe pretty painful at that the way women slip them off every tune they get a chance. Oh, well, for the Old Goat it's an academic question, which in plain language means "So what?" GLIMPSED IN Bill Maurer's column in the Laurens Sun is an interesting item. To wit and viz as the lawyers say when they charge by the word: "We've heard of some ridiculous items, but Tuesday Weld and her hubby take the cake this week. Seems they are borrowing movies from the! Walt Disney library .to run off at their home. Watching Pinocchicio and the like, Tuesday explains, results in vibrations which are good for an expectant mother. So is riding on a motorcycle down a railroad track." ,,;. * *'•*••' THE EMMY AWARDS were a repeat of last year's awful show of watching the recipients Wander up to the podium to get their statues. Why is it they can't have them lined up back stage and get it over with? Some of them were tearjerkerS —the man who had been blacklisted for ten years but finally won out, and a couple of the girls getting all broken up including Mary Tyler Moore who didn't look a thing like in her show. Probably had a wig—no hair could be that awful. Bill Cosby scorned a bit overwhelmed by it all, and Danny Kaye tried to be cute but missed as usual. Carol Burnett gave the only interesting moment to the whole show. » tf * YUCCCK! Some darn fool joker wants a photo of the culprit put on his drivers license. Phooey to such a silly business. It's tough enough getting the durn thing if a person forgets and has to take the exam. But standing a follow up and shooting his pix to come on the license just about tears it all the way. The Old Goat hasn't a face to launch a rowboat let alone a thousands ships (Remember Helen of Troy?) unless the fellow in the boat gets scared which well he might. The Old Goat can just imagine the line-up while a woman fixes her hair a bit before going before the camera) Golly gee! * * * SUNDAY'S SPORTS page showed the bloody torso of the guy Cassius Mohamed or something like that Clay whopped in a so-called boxing exhibition in England the other night. The fight game is a lousy business and the picture was enough to prove it. And frankly the guys bopping each other around get little moolah for their trouble. The promoters and taxes take the money and the fighter gets the lumps. Maybe once upon a time it was the so-called "gentleman's sport" but it isn't now. The racket boys seems to run the deal. * * * MAYBE THE WAY to a man's heart is through his stomach, but a bit of study of the word "heart" may indicate it's the sweet nothings that get the job done. The first part of heart is "he", in the middle is "ear" the last part is "art." So the Old Goat would interpret it as being something in the male ear that is an art. And bub, if you don't think it is try to remember how you got hooked. So there-!
