(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

..in which a crime busting troupe of male strippers use their formidable powers to rid the streets of scum, while getting their kit off.
Mickey the Fish, May 10 2002


       No billy clubs, please....
phoenix, May 10 2002

       or canadian clubs
reensure, May 10 2002

       where do they carry a badge?
rbl, May 10 2002

       Unfortunately, it will star William Conrad and Buddy Ebsen.
mrthingy, May 10 2002

       If they have no backside, they can do the mobius strip.
FarmerJohn, May 10 2002

       I hope they keep their socks on.
po, May 10 2002

       a cool, suave and disdainful talking car?
yamahito, May 10 2002

       [rbl] "We don't need no stinkin'..."   

       But then there's the handcuffs, mace, etc.. Also note that they're terrible at undercover work.   

       [mrthingy] You forgot Phyllis Diller.   

       [po] I thought you liked yours sans socks.
phoenix, May 10 2002

       depends where they put the socks... (cue for jokes about keeping the trunceon in the socks, etc)
yamahito, May 10 2002

       oui, sans socks - but this lot need some protection when padding the mucky streets. bless 'em.
po, May 10 2002

       I bet thats not all their padding, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more.

       //Unfortunately, it will star William Conrad and Buddy Ebsen//
Ha! Don't forget Orson Welles or Ronald Reagan
thumbwax, May 10 2002

       Or Jason Alexander from Seinfeld fame.
RayfordSteele, May 11 2002

       Wait a minute...William Conrad (Cannon, Jake and the Fat Man) owned a boat in the slip next to mine; Buddy Ebsen (Beverly Hillbillies, Baranaby Jones), once bought a painting from me; And Ronald Reagan (Actor, SAG President, Governor, US President) was a member of my Church Congregation...I almost met Orson Welles once when he was doing voice-overs and I worked for Foote, Cone and Belding, but I called in sick that day.....Did you guys just pick these names out of a hat?
jurist, May 11 2002

       Yes, and where do you think that hat came from? Don't even ask. Heh heh...
snarfyguy, May 11 2002

       Thanks, snarfyguy...For several moments I was sure I was just being paranoid.
jurist, May 11 2002

       Quite simply, Mephista,a "kit" is an appurtenance to a "kaboodle".
jurist, May 11 2002

       kit - clothes
po, May 11 2002

       I was just in Foote's office 2 days ago - They have an incredible amount of awards in Radio Advertising.
thumbwax, May 11 2002

       "Foote, Cone and Belding" that *has* to be the name of an idea surely?
po, May 11 2002

       (They used to be kind of semi-important in print and TV, too, Thumbwax...But that was a long time ago,and as encyclopedic as your memory is, TW, I wouldn't expect you to remember very many of the golden days before Chiat.)
jurist, May 11 2002

       Po...Foote, Cone and Belding was one of the world's major advertising agencies of an age, once upon a time,a long time ago.
jurist, May 11 2002

       you have to admit though, its one hell of a title for an idea.
po, May 11 2002

       Po...I'd post it, but I have no idea what it would be about. Rampant Foote diseases? Flocking Road Cones? or Belding radial-belted Automobile Tires that somehow respond to Pavlovian bell-dings?...Advise me. I'm pretty sure that we covered all three at FCB at one time or the other.
jurist, May 11 2002

       My recollection of them in that sense is on a tangent - I used to manage the distribution of Stock Photography and Illustration books for Tony Stone Images, Blackbook, Scott & Daughters, etc. from between 45,000 to upwards of 75,000 recipients. Some ad agencies got 132 copies, all the way down to some getting 1 or 2 - several times annually, we were the highest volume user of UPS worldwide. Regardless, they even had some shots of overweight strippers.
thumbwax, May 11 2002

       Somewhere around here I have one of your annual Blackbooks, TW., probably from 1974....An exceptionally well-done paean to the power of graphic arts in adverising, advertising illustration , photography, and , oh yeah, the occasional well-turned phrase.
jurist, May 11 2002

       Only Black Book I knew of back in 1974 was my Brothers little phone book - he was a Senior, I was in 8th Grade.
