It ain’t easy being cheesy


The food was impossible for me because I’m allergic to so many different things. I took two suitcases with me, one of clothes and the other full of Heinz beans (there’s a plug for you). Then one morning the guys who were dealing with the food said, ‘Would you like some eggs?’ And I said, ‘Oh yeah, sure,’ and the next morning they said it again. I thought, ‘Oh yeah, great – things are looking up.’


And as far as cheesy goes, let’s never forget that Ringo coStarred in The Magic Christian!


Kind of amazing that he seems so healthy now. And his longevity.

“ At the age of six, Starkey developed appendicitis. Following a routine appendectomy he contracted peritonitis, causing him to fall into a coma that lasted days.[16] His recovery spanned twelve months, which he spent away from his family at Liverpool’s Myrtle Street children’s hospital.[17] Upon his discharge in May 1948, his mother allowed him to stay at home, causing him to miss school.[18] At age eight, he remained illiterate, with a poor grasp of mathematics.[18] His lack of education contributed to a feeling of alienation at school, which resulted in his regularly playing truant at Sefton Park.[19] After several years of twice-weekly tutoring from his surrogate sister and neighbour, Marie Maguire Crawford, Starkey had nearly caught up to his peers academically, but in 1953, he contracted tuberculosis and was admitted to a sanatorium, where he remained for two years.”



When I heard “pitched” I thought it was like Keith Moon trashing a hotel room, and they tossed it at a bunch of squares who gave them guff about their long hippy hair.

But then I remembered, “it’s the Monkees we’re talking about here.”


Why would Nesmith be there? The closing gag wouldn’t have worked with all four members present.


Of course.
:musical_note: They were just too busy playin’
To throw any pizza around.
