In the Root Hog or Diner, Uncle Sal spilled some coffee onto his Blue Bombers sweater vest as he set the cup down on the National Organization of Calf Ropers saucer.
"Say Giacomo. 'Member a couple months ago when I told ya about that one-man band Hugh Beezus?"
Giacomo dumped three spoons of salsa verde onto his huevos rancheros and said, "Yeah, and how disappointed you were with the guy who wanted to be the next Hugh Beezus."
"Exactly. Well, there's a story inna paper about the grandson of Hugh Beezus." Uncle Sal sipped his extra spicy bloody Mary and said, "At least the guy says he is the grandson of Beezus. He went on two radio shows and a podcast talking about how Hugh Beezus had a one night-stand with the dude's grandma. But for one of the hosts, well, let's just say that this guy's story didn't jibe. He asked some pretty mundane questions, and then he sprung a question on this guy. He asked him about his granddad's Les Paul guitar. Well, Beezus's grandson goes on and on about how glorious the Les Paul was. Only everyone knows that Beezus only played a Stegosaurus. According to this article, the impostor is a tea farmer from Snohomish, Washington. Name of Saul Kite."
Giacomo slid a home fry into his mouth and said, "You don't mean to tell me..."
Uncle Sal said, "'Fraid so. Beezus is just Saul Kite with tea."
