Burns, baby Burns. Disco inferno!

Dallas' new fire chief was announced this week. The dapper and handsome Eddie Burns of Fort Worth(LOVE the butch moustache) was the man of the hour. Anyone besides me think this is funny and kinda cute? Chief Burns. Like, wouldn't someone named "Dowser" or "Waterman" be a more apt choice for fire chief?

I knew of a Dr Hymen one time. Unfortunately, he was a dentist, not a gynecologist.
And there is a Dr Doctor where I work, true story.

I dunno - it might have been just TOO icky if he'd become a gyno dr. Dr. Doctor is a cute name.

I just hope Chief Burns gets on in his new post like a house on fire.

haha "a house on fire" - I wonder if Chief Burns has ever heard that one before.

This is probably the first time anyone's thought of it. I'm not above the trite observation.

OK. Let's cut to the chase. This was just an opportunity to stretch my legs with a freeware photo-chop program slightly more sophisticated than paint - which, although endearingly amateurish, was sort of the fat kindergarten pencil of illustration thingies. I just wanted a chance to really layer some crap and I'm pleased with the first outing. Woo hoo!

It's beautiful. You totally rule at colouring.

schnoobie said...

Yeah!!
What's with all the fireman having this moustache thing???I see them mostly on TV ...lots of the NYFD guys.... but your rendition totally works. Good job with the new illustration stuff. I aspire....

barbara - woohoo!

schnoobie - I'll tell you why- the moustache thingie is kinda hot! They're FIRE men! Wow, thanks - it was fun.

There was a firm of lawyers in England called 'Swindle and Cheetham'. True.

phlegmfatale said...

Wow- I'm in awe of that. I guess there's something to be said for truth in advertising, and what's in a name, eh tick?

Two REAL plastic surgeons in Halifax:
Dr. Precious and Dr. Pretty

A dental surgeon in the area:
Dr. Usher (As in the Fall of the House of Usher - a very creepy story by Edgar Allan Poe...about a very creepy family.)

He is cute, though. Bet he's heard every joke known to man or woman about this name and career by now, poor S.O.B.

I still love the billboard I saw on 35 years ago...for an attorney:

Richard Cheatum

Ranger Tom said...

There was a Dr. Foote in Philly, and yes, he was a podiatrist.

Wow, your town looks like the place to party!

Perplexio said...

It kind of reminds me of when the pro-wrestler, "Flyin Brian" Pillman died of a drug overdose... sometimes fate is cruelly humorous.

phlegmfatale said...

lj - yeah, it's bound to be annoying

nongirlfriend - lawyer named Cheatum? Sounds like he deserves an award for truth in advertising

rangertom - dr. foote - that's really cute

heather - yeah, we were born to be wild

preplexio - wow- that is sad and twisted. I suppose Flyin Brian was high when he overdosed?
