A Black And White Woody


I doubt any young man would want to be saddled with the nickname of Woody in this day and age. But in days of yore, it was not uncommon. Most of you remember Woody Woodpecker.


Or this naive, young bartender, Huckleberry Woodrow Tiberius “Woody” Boyd, from Cheers, played by a man named Woody in real life.


Other famous Woodies include folk singer Woody “This Land Is My Land” Guthrie, and Woody Allen, the director/screenwriter who destroyed any of his cred by marrying his stepdaughter (yes, she was, for all practical purposes) Soon-Yi, who is 37 years his junior. Gross, Woody. You disgust me. And I never liked Annie Hall. But I do like this picture. Or half of it, at least.


I wonder if folks called former president, Woodrow Wilson, by his full name? Can you name one fact about this president?


He was actually one of the four presidents who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He received his in 1919 for founding the League of Nations, the predecessor to the United Nations. You probably know Obama somehow nabbed one as well, but so did Theodore Roosevelt and Jimmy Carter. But I want to leave you with a more upbeat woody–this one from Toy Story.


“What chance does a toy like me have against a Buzz Lightyear action figure?”

    1. I did have a pic of one on the post and the Beach Boys’ reference “loading up our woody” but then decided against it, since it wasn’t a name per se. There should be a post about how there seem to be a lot more terms for the male part as opposed to the female.


    1. Soft raspberries and bananas in cereal, like I’m a toddler. No cake yet. Very sensitive to hot and cold in that molar today, so I’m super grumpy! Thanks for asking. 🙂
