A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

"When you ain't got no money, you gotta get an attitude."

Ah well, 65 years is a good long run, I'll be pleased if I even get near it.
Richard Pryor comes between Lenny Bruce and Eddy Murphy in the history of American Comedy. I think he got to a mass audience through the arrival of the domestic VCR, as we could watch material not accepted by mainstream TV. I remember he was one of the first I saw when I got a video player in 1983 - I thought his pieces on drugs and sex were cryingly funny and avant-garde.
Wasn't it Richard Pryor who said "If shit was worth money, niggers would be born with no arses"?
