Benny Jay: Milo’s Back!

June 16th, 2016

In the annals of history there have been several momentous returns. For example…

In 1995, Michael Jordan ended his first retirement from basketball with a simple two-word message: “I’m back.”

Ten days later, he dropped 55 on the Knicks.

In 1942, General Douglas MacArthur had to flee the Philippines, under Japanese attack, announcing: “I shall return.”

Two and a half years later, he did just that, declaring: “I have returned.”

And, of course, there was Napoleon, who returned to France from exile on the Mediterranean island of Elba.

“Here I am,” he told French soldiers. “Kill your emperor, if you wish.”

To that, we have a new return that’s every bit as spectacular: Milo’s back!

I got the call this morning.

“Benny,” he said. “It’s time to get your sorry ass back to work.”

At which point, I fell to the ground and proclaimed: “Vive L’Empereur!”

Just like those French soldiers did to Napoleon.

If you recall, Milo took a nasty fall about six weeks ago. To fix him up, the docs at the V.A. hospital inserted a piece of titanium into his skull.

To say he was out of sorts is an understatement. He could barely speak.

Now he’s barking out orders. Just like in the old days.

MacArthurReturnsMilo–in his shades–returns to TTC…


Explanation time…

See those sidebars–thought of the day, sleazy ad, dumbass of the week, etc–just to the right?

They’re largely Milo’s creations. Mostly, I type as he dictates.

Why doesn’t Milo just type it himself?

Cause after eight years of blogging, he still doesn’t know how to insert a photo into a post.

Apparently, they didn’t teach blogging at Horace Mann High School in Gary, Indiana, where Milo was a straight-C student in the `60s.

They did teach him how to spell. So his job is to proofread what I type.

As a test, I made a mistake or two just to see if he’d truly recovered.

Instead of writing “wholly owned subsidiary”, I wrote “wholly subsidiary.”

Okay, maybe, it wasn’t really a test. Maybe I’m just incapable of writing a sentence without making a mistake or two.

Either way–he caught it!

Thanks to all the teachers in the Gary public schools for making Milo the world-champion proof reader he is.

“Will you be writing a new post on Monday?” I asked him.

“I don’t think I’m ready for that,” he said. “Just doing this wore me out. I need to take a nap.”

Funny, I feel the same way–and I don’t have the titanium excuse.

Good to have you back, Milo.
