    How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

    Re: Ask Pete Rose Anything

    What was Joe Friday's badge number?

    Seriously, I used to ask three questions just messing with people and I couldn't use them because Rich Red used one of them when he said he would ask "how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?" I used to ask
    1. What's Joe Friday's badge number?
    2. What was the dog's name on Petticoat Junction and
    3. How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of Tootsie Pop?
    But, Rich Red, Justincredible and Chip R - thanks for the laugh....literally, out loud!

    Do you ever regret having that rediculous over-zealous mullet?

You wouldn't believe him if he told you the truth and provided indisputable evidence that he was telling the truth. Short of going back in time and stopping himself from betting on baseball, a lot of people will never be satisfied by anything he says or does. You can't change the past, why do you expect him to? Besides those are the least creative questions that you can possibly ask. Why not ask him something like who the player is that he feels best represents his hustle and will to win in today's game.

    Sorry for the rant, and I already know a lot of you are probably going to say, "why does a post like this appear whenever we talk about Pete?" But hey, this post is no more common than the ones that want Pete to "tell the truth." If you're going to allow one, you have to allow the other. I'm just giving the other.

    Outstanding post! If I cared about rep points or knew how to give them, I would give them to you.

    Too easy, same as Babe Ruth's home run record. I've forgotten his partner's badge number, though (hint: it wasn't 4152)

    According to Ask Morty, "Although he later played "Benji" and his real real name was "Higgins, the dog on "Petticoat Junction" was called "dog." Uncle Joe did call him "boy" as well, but his name, was dog.
    That question used to drive me crazy What did we ever do without the internet at our fingertips?

    Well he just may have finally told us the "truth".

    The damn shame is we had to pay him $25.95 to read about the "truth" in his book.

    The man was an amazing ball player but a complete ***** as a person.

    Re: Ask Pete Rose Anything

    This sounds like an advice column The Onion would run...

    "Dear Pete,

    My lawn just doesn't seem to be doing so well. The summer was pretty dry and now that it's fall, I've noticed bare patches where the grass has died. Is there anything I can do?

    - Patches in Perrysburg"

    "Dear Patches,

    Fall is a good time to overseed your lawn to fill in some of those dead patches. Throw down some Kentucky Bluegrass seeds on your lawn. The Bluegrass will sprout and grow some before the snow hits, as it does better in colder weather than other varieties. Then in the spring, it will really take off and fill in those bare spots. Just remember to throw down some straw so that the birds don't eat all the seeds. If you do that, I put the odds at 2 to 1 that you'll have a better lawn.

    - Pete"

    "Dear Pete,

    I will be starting school at UC next year, but my long-term boyfriend has a scholarship to play baseball at Ohio State. I really love him, but I don't know how we're going to be able to handle living apart for most of the school year. I really love him and I think he's the one. What should I do?

    - Sleepless in Cincinnati"

    "Dear Sleepless,

    Listen babe, your boyfriend is a ballplayer. He's going to be travelling a lot and he's going to have certain needs. If you really love him, you'll take good care of him when he's home. But just don't ask questions or hassle him about what's going on at school or on the road. What happens on the road, stays on the road. Got that, toots?

    - Pete"
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
