The Poetry of the Macho Man

"I've been in the Danger Zone east of the Pacific Ocean, west of London, England, south of Mars, and north of Hell."



That's a shout-out to all my homeys. You know who you are.

Feel free to nominate your favorite Randy Savage moments.

Maybe it's this Onion story on Macho Man:

ccording to Helen Blashock, Macho Man, who arrived wearing dark sunglasses and matching leather hat and vest, burst into Tyler’s hospital room and shouted, "Hey there little dude, I’m here to make you feel gooooood!"

"You could just see the confusion in Tyler’s eyes—he didn’t understand why this was happening to him," Mrs. Blashock said. "He’s been so brave."

Savage, who told Tyler his sickness reminded him of the time he wrestled Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat and "crushed that pip-squeak’s larynx," said that he enjoys helping less-fortunate fans.

"I do what I can to pump the kids up," Savage said. "I’m still on their team even though they can’t tag me in for this fight."

Savage also brought old Wrestlemania videos to watch with Tyler.

"My eyes and my bones and everything aches," Tyler said. "I just want to sleep."

So you put this up, and totally ignore the YouTube of Federline getting dropped like a sack of dead kittens. Even though your BlogCrush [tm] has posted it, like, 6.022*10^23 times. Some priorities, Last.

I'm not going to give you the all caps this time. You have to earn the all caps.

PS: Not that you care, but Kevin Federline shares a birthday with Jonah Goldberg. I'm just saying.

Quintessential Macho Man moment: His (one-sided) rap war with Hulk Hogan: "Be a Man".

It included such lyrical gems as:

"Come on that phony fight the Rock spanked you fast / But when I challenged Hogan to a real fight he passed"

"Be a man Hogan Boy you's a chump / Cuz Hulk Hogan is a real big punk"

"They call you Hollywood (hugh hugh) don't make me laugh / Cuz your movies and your actin' skills are both trash / Your movies straight to video the box office can't stand / While I got myself a feature role in Spider Man"

"I smell a coward mmmm is that you Hogan / Macho's gonna kick ya butt is the slogan"

Take that, Terry.
