James Basore and David Olsen collaborated to make this promotional display for a sale of Newmans Own salad dressing at Thoms Natural Foods, 5843 Geary Blvd in San Francisco,
in June of 1991...

Paul Newman is foremost-ly Cool Hand Luke, and he's always saying

- Still shakin Boss...

I used to own a rotary pipe cutter and still think about decapitating parking meters,

just like Luke was doing at the beginning of the film...

Newman was just a lucky sight for eyes to lay on...

I hope he's being cryogenicly stored; but I imagine him too modest for that...

I Have Always Thought Alli Warren Is Famous?

since 2003, back in the freewheelin bob dylan era Ali

How long did Archie last against the young Cassius, in Los Angeles

Moore had been her trainer till Aly became dissatisfied and left

after Archie's attempts to change her name, and his insistence she

do dishes and erase marks from large slate chalk boards

In the days before, the young Ali's rhyming skills predicted

"Archie Moore / Must fall in four."

Archie replied he had a new punch for the match: The Lip-Buttoner

However, as Ally predicted, her rhymes were "calm as a day old glass of water"

and Moore was stopped after four lines / Still, Archie is the only man to have

faced both Ali and Reynolds Price
