The Tao of Al

The Tao of Al

by WeirdDana27 » Sun Jun 21, 2015 6:32 am

So in thinking recently that I aim to live my life with a philosophy akin to Al's standard of living as evidenced by his humor, his outward appearance, and overall pleasant and upbeat nature, this sparked the idea of a possible book about the Tao of Al! Ideally Al should write this book, but I'm sure there are plenty of fans out there who have input as to how they live their lives with this understanding. Every chapter would be named after one of Al's songs (or albums, possibly), so if you have any input, I will be compiling the Tao of Al via this thread!

Ideas for chapter names that I have thus far:
Eat It
Dare to Be Stupid
Smells Like Nirvana
Perform This Way
Why Does This Always Happen To Me?
Everything You Know Is Wrong (or IS it?)
If That Isn't Love

I think this one is quite obvious:
Thou shalt not taint your speech with bad grammar

MW is that YOU?? Because your avatar is COOL. But you need the Ponys or some poodles or whatnot flying over your head in a flank.
Commandment # -98: Woof! (Pause.) Woof. ["Guess what city I'm in and I'll give you a twinkie-weiner sandwich."]

Al is so laid back, if you went to his house he probably has NO Thou-Shalt Nots! Except for Don't Throw That Poodle In The Pool. Then I Have To Remove The oodle from the ool. Because Now There Is P In It.
