I assumed you were referring to my calling Slim "the man." However, I
used your remark as a jumping off point for a possible discussion about
contemporary "G-dom." After all, how much do we need to beat old Ray
Chandler into the ground?

As for Tosh's intro -- I assumed he was just getting into "the spirit"
of Slim, conveying Slim's persona and capturing some of the tenor of his
material. (Very well, too.)

Not protesting too much, I hope. Can't say I find Slim too much of a
role model. But certainly amusing and impressive to read ...
