Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

So Immaculately Frightful

Would you walk a mile for a Camel?

“Would? I have! Rather take my bike, though.”

Did any of the other guys have a motorcycle?

“Motorcycle!? Half that bunch can barely walk! Wouldn’t trust none of ’em on no motorbike!”

Any of them even try?

“Phil did once. Fell off!”

Phil fell off the bike?

“No! He fell off the sidewalk walkin’ to the damn thing!”


“The ol’ Pig never seen the like. Man just toppled right over. Looked like an ostrich on a newly-polished floor!”

Anybody else?

“Billy figured out to work the bike, but then he drove into a high school cafeteria.”

He did that on purpose.

“You think the Pig don’t know that!?”

Y’know, you really shouldn’t smoke.

“Why? I might die young?”


“The Pig don’t tell no lies.”

No, he doesn’t.


  1. Pig’s hats, man.

    I would pay to go to a museum dedicated to them.

      It took Ron a while to figure out his head gear. Nothing really worked. He finally settled on that corduroy cowboy hat, in which he looked good. That hat seemed to go really well with his facial features.

    That is one (of a series) of photos for an advertising campaign that never made it. Camel eventually came out with the “Joe Camel” ads, but, by that time, it was way too many years past the psychedelic days for that approach to be successful.

  3. Well done. He always was immaculately frightful, especiallly as he bummed a cigarette.
