Pete Rose would like to tell you something about Joe DiMaggio

Joe DiMaggio

So, Pete Rose and Joe DiMaggio are in the jungle in Vietnam, and DiMaggio decides he needs to take a shower …

No, that’s not the intro to a joke.  It happened. Pete Rose said it did.  And even though it’s a true story and not a joke, it does have some punchline.  Why Pete Rose felt compelled to share it is another story, but he’s Pete Rose and we love him for that.

BTW: the story and the website are clean enough, but it is basically a locker room story, so if that bugs you, don’t click through.

    All of us are hanging from it in our self-images. So what’s the news? That it wasn’t good enough for Marilyn and she died dreaming of Milton Berle?

      Rumor has it that Uncle Miltie could bring it, too…..

        The Hollywood conventional wisdom was that Uncle Miltie was THE man. I once heard Howard Cosell call him out on it at a Friar’s Luncheon. What followed was maybe the funniest run of dozens I ever heard in my life. My ribs hurt just from thinking about it.

    This finally settles that age-old argument.

    So Monroe really was loose then?

      Then? You mean afterwards?

        Bwahaha!! As a result of, yes.

    I did notice Pete’s collar, anyone else notice what it says???

      Pretty sure it says “Hit King” for what its worth…

    Always wondered what his appeal was…

    Only ten comments as this thread prepares to subduct under the Page 1 plate? It’s now official: people were more interested in Ted William’s head than Joe DiMaggio’s penis. Perhaps America is finally growing up after all.
