YGtG 1: A Pimp Named...
According to Blogger, I drafted this on 7/11/06. It's a post that I never quite finished. Who knows why? Whether you think it was going in a good direction or not, I felt pretty good about it at the time! Enjoy.

A while back, I mentioned that I was reading The Art of War by Sun Tzu, and that I'd be sharing my thoughts and such on the book.

I'm still going to do that, but before I do that, I'm going to start my own tome, The Art of Pimping, by Iceberg Slim.

I read Iceberg Slim's Pimp a few years ago. Chock full of sage words, I must say. I'll go back to that one and see what there is to learn from it. Right now I'm on The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim. I will most probably renumber the rules in The Art of Pimping later, but for now, here you go:

1. Suffering is inevitable and necessary for an aspiring pimp, pickpocket or con man...
2. Sympathy is a counterfeit emotion for suckers which is usually offered with a crooked con grin of amused contempt and rejected with a spittled snarl.
3. All of the countless whores I have known and those I have controlled revealed a hunger for notoriety and for punishment, psychic or physical or both. The phony glamour and cruelty of the pimp fill these needs and are the magnets tht attract and hold the whore to the pimp.

You get the gist!
