Famous Author Dances as Daughter Sheds Name, Ties

The Famous Author's female child was married this past weekend, and while most dads reminisce, weep and bemoan the "loss" of a daughter at such events, TFA danced the night away. Watch TFA display his true colors by clicking on the video below. If you don't recognize his dance moves, then you are too young to remember Dee Dee Sharp sing the Mashed Potatoes -- one of those odd ditties created in the studio using the names of other hit records as lyrics, but which caught fire with half the high schoolers in America and became the Great Mashed Potatoes Dance Craze. Figures TFA would fall for the latest in trends, but why fifty two years later? When he showed up at the office this morning, I asked TFA about this emotional inconsistency:

"Sad?" he said. "Are you kidding? Are you nuts? Like everyone else in the room, I am happy for my daughter. Nothing to be sad about."

"Her name is no longer Getze," I reminded him. "Doesn't that bother you?"

"Hardly. Now the U.S. Marshals won't mix us up serving warrants."
