This Cat Drifts With Passion - Chet Coppock: A Conundrum Wrapped in Bacon

Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite. Kahil Gibran

"Watch the run, watch the screen, watch everything!" - Abe Gibron

 On AM radio in Chicago, one is more than likely to hear an ad delivered by Sports Journalist, wit, boulevardier, gourmand and authority Chet Coppock.

Chet Coppock and the words 'succulent' are synonymous is this our palatable swine and kine town, when the man is pointing hungry bellies in the direction of a fine dining establishment; however, I recently needed to pull the old Malibu onto the shoulder of the Dan Ryan in order to control my giggles upon hearing Chet shill for a plastic surgeon.

I nearly went east and west*on the Ryan when I heard this one! Mr. Coppock's salutation " This cat drifts (or is it drips?) with passion" caused me no end of giggles.

The DNA of language is safe in the hands of Chet Coppock!
