Hello Surf Reporters!
I need your help with something: a questionable new project I’m starting today. Or re-starting, to be more precise, since I made a stab at it once before and didn’t follow-through… Go figure.
Anyway, over the next couple of months, or so, I’d like for us to come up with names for a whole bunch o’ fictional blues singers, based on items and activities associated with each room of an average house.
For instance, the kitchen. That’s where we’ll start today. Then, at some random point in the future (possibly a day when I’m pressed for time – ahem) I’ll ask for another room. And eventually we’ll have a whole houseful of fake blues singers! Pretty cool, huh?
When we’re finished, I’d like to have a page showing the architectural plans for a house, with a link in each room leading to the corresponding list of Surf Reporter suggestions. See where I’m going with this? I think it could be great.
And when we’re done with blues singers, maybe we can do baseball players in the workplace, or something? But let’s not get ahead of ourselves… Today we’re dealing with blues singers in the kitchen. Just blues singers… and just the kitchen. OK?
I’ve listed a few of my own suggestions below, and you talented folks can take it from there.
- Walter “Salad Spinner” Jones
- John “Big Whisk” Anderson
- The Slotted Spoon
- James “Bisquik” Jefferson
- Little Bundt Pan Willie
- Larry “Egg Cups” Watson
- Easy Cheese McGee
- Hydrox Joe Hunter
- Lucille “Melon Balls” Wheatstraw
- Dishrag Sam
- Bastin’ Thomas
- Poultry Seasoning Taylor
- Al “Cutting Board” Perkins
- Wanda “Toaster Strudel” Musselwhite
Thanks, as always, for your participation and ridiculousness. I’ll be back tomorrow with a real update.
See ya then!
