    Maybe, just maybe, you’re wondering how come you’re so privileged as to receive this communiqué. Well, answer is simple, thanks to and through the search words “blog” and “‘Lenny Bruce'”, I found the u.r.l to your website.

    After perusing your website, I conjectured you’d be interested in my post titled, “sweetest nookie”. In this post, you’ll find some notions about how Lenny, were he around today, might comment about the recent kerfuffle in the Middle East.

    Anyway, you’ll find the hyperlink to the post just below
