Muhammad Ali


Last week I saw “When We Were Kings”, a 1996 documentary about the fight of fights in Zaïre. I’m not really a boxing fan, so I had no idea Ali was such a skilled taunter. One bit stuck in my mind:

I wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick; I’m so mean I make medicine sick.
