Dear Dr. Stupid
« on: November 25, 2008, 12:25:55 PM »
Dear Dr. Stupid,

While having a conversation last night about a well known children's television show host... There came to be two stories about this host's background. The one version of the story was he had been an ordained minister. My version goes that he was a vietnam era marine sniper and the sweaters he would wear covered full arm tatoos. The children's show host in question is Mr. Rodgers... Dr. Stupid i ask of you; Please shed some light on the debate.

Sincerely,

Guy who wants to believe in a bad ass legend!
It's not the size of the tool that counts, it's the size of the box you put it in.

Dr. Stupid

Fred Rogers passing on February 27th 2003 was a very sad day in the neighborhood. He was not always the soft spoken mild mannered “neighbor” you came to know and love. Fred Rogers aka “Mr. Rogers” aka Sgt. Rogers was one bad-ass mofo.
During his war years, Sgt. Rogers was a crack shot, able to shoot down several German fighter planes with a single submachine gun, and able to throw hand grenades with amazing accuracy.
Sgt. Rogers was a highly effective close combat fighter, mostly using a style of streetfighting mixed with boxing.
Sgt. Rogers seemed to have close to superhuman endurance and strength, surviving large number of gunshot wounds, fragments from hand grenades, exposure to freezing water and other hazards.
 Sgt. Rogers was usually dressed in olive drab fatigues, with a .45 calibre Thompson submachine gun and .45 calibre Colt M1911A1 automatic pistol as his armament. Oddly, classic artwork almost always depicts Sgt. Rogers with an M-1 Garand cartridge belt which would be useless to him, as well as two belts of .50 calibre ammunition, which Sgt. Rogers considers lucky charms. Sgt. Rogers was always shown with a number of hand grenades secured to his equipment.

While battling a handful of German soldiers holed up in an abandoned schoolhouse, Sgt. Rogers threw one of his signature grenades through a small opening with deadly accuracy killing all inside…including 24 school children the kraut bastards were holding hostage. This drove him into a deep dark depression. From that day on Rogers always wore a long sleeved shirt to cover the “Death Before Dishonor” tattoo on his right forearm. Rogers spent the next few years in and out of every bottle he could find trying to drink away the memories. It didn’t work. The pain was unbearable. It was at that point he pulled himself out of the gutter and decided to dedicate the remainder of his life to the memory of the 24 children whose lives he cut short.

The dawning of the sweater was the symbolic metamorphosis from Sgt. Rogers to Mr. Rogers.
Mr. Rogers wore 24 different cardigans over the course of his television career, one of which was knitted by his mother and now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History.

A few more facts:
Mr. Rogers was red-green colorblind.
1963 made a gay porn with Chuck “the Rifleman” Connors.
“Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” was in production from 1968–2001.
In 2003 the asteroid 26858 Misterrogers was named after him.

Won’t you be my neighbor,
Dr. Stupid
