Bored on a Saturday night, Mitch and Logan decided to cruise the town to see what kind of trouble they could get into.
“What’s the line all about over there,” Logan asked.
“Haven’t you heard? That’s Ziggy. He says he’s been in three motion pictures now.”
“Seriously? Wonder why I haven’t heard of him. Were they movies we would’ve seen?”
“That’s where it gets a little dicey. He swears he’s been in Apocalypse Now. Should have had second billing right under Brando. In fact, says he’s in the same scene as he was, you remember that dark dark scene where Brandon’s character was philosophizing?”
“Ziggy says he was there right next to Marlo Boy as he calls him. He says you have to really look hard but he’s there. Says he made the scene what it is.”
“And they’re all lined up for autographs?”
“Yeah, strange isn’t it?”
“What about that line over there?”
“That there’s a con artist if I’ve ever seen one. Says he was photographed on the lips of the President and 10 years later on the head of the Vice President.”
“Yeah, I’ll call con artist with you. Everyone knows that flies only live for three days, but that one over there, the gnat – what’d you call him?
“Right, Ziggy. I gotta believe him. We gnats live forever, Baby.”
“Ain’t that the truth.”
