    Default Louie Izzard

    "I'm an executive transvestite. That means that I can wear high heels and run around and not fall down. Cuz you know that if a woman wears high heels and falls over, that's embarassing. But if you're a bloke wearing high heels and you fall down, well... you have to kill yourself..."

    Not sure if anyone will actually get this one. Eddie Izzard is a British Transvestite Stand-up comedian. Yes, the person in the original picture is actually a man. He's hysterical!! Though perhaps a little odd.

    Well, I think in this case, although it's a great picture, eddie looks better as eddie than Lou does.... I mean, I just can't imagine Lou having a coat like that!! LOL!!

    So true!! There are many, many pictures of him and I thought the same thing... so not fair that a man gets such a nice set of legs. And like you, in the great "Cake or Death" debate, I got console myself in a big piece of chocolate!

    Lol. It does take a special kind of person to wear something like that. Especially with the boots and all.

    While better known for his more recent work in the horror genre, writer Louis J. Aszod was schooled in the classical tradition. This influence can be best seen in earlier works.

    In this passage, protagonist Yoda wavers between his admiration for the grace and beauty of orchids and his own disillusionment upon the death of his prized Blc. Mem. Helen Brown 'Sweet Afton' AM/AOS.

    "What a piece of work is orchid! How noble in elegance! How infinite in variety! In form and growth, how express and admirable! In fragrance, how like a perfume. In flower, how like a jewel! The beauty of the world! The paragon of angiosperms! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of chlorophyll? Crown rot delights not me; no, nor broken spikes neither, though by your compost heap you seem to say so."
