Nineveh (485)

The Book of Nahum, chapter 3 (New International Version)

1Woe to the city of blood,
full of lies,
full of plunder,

3Charging cavalry,
flashing swords
and glittering spears!
Many casualties,

I Don’t Monkey Around (303/415/485)

Before I can start on you,

you have to be shaved clean and close.
I perfected my own special technique
before I was kicked out
of the Medical Association.
My method is based
partly on calling a spade a spade.
I don't monkey around.
-Have you got the money?
-Yeah, you want it now?
Sam said you could afford $200.
Put it on the table there.
Ever see any botched plastic jobs?
If a man like me didn't like a fellow...
he could surely fix him up for life.
Make him look like a bulldog or a monkey.
I'll make you look older, but good.
-I'll make you look as if you've lived.
-I have, Doc.
I hope I'm not a coward when you start in.
We're all cowards.
