Hit it, Dweez!

We didn’t talk about sports much, though he did like a game of badminton,” says Zappa. “But I don’t think he’d be upset that I play golf. For my dad, the ultimate disgraceful pursuit would be becoming an A&R man at a record company, and the second-worst would have been a lawyer. Golf is harmless by comparison.”

Hehe – I’ve just pictured FZ playing badminton…

    of Frank playing ping-pong ?

    “…a firebrand six-string virtuoso whose best-known album is entitled My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama…”

    The trope of the late great composer, lunging boldly forward, valiantly questing after the illusive Shuttlecock w/ his skinny little racket-thing, has truly Gormed me … that’s one Very Unusual Meme there …
    & i somehow get this corollary image of him using the aforementioned racket-thing 2 play Air-Guitar, 2 …
    - yow, i guess truth still out-weirds fiction, eh?
