He was a little "off" I think is the term ... One day he said to me, "I'm
gonna fly." I said, "I believe ya can, Maynard, I've seen ya do a lot of
wild things. I think you can fly." We went up to Willard's Bluff ...
He Scotch-taped a hundred forty-six pigeons to his arms.
He said, "I know I can do it ... I know I can." I said, "Don't repeat
yourself, just do it." He was airborne for a good twenty seconds. Then some
kid came from outta nowhere, threw a bag of popcorn in the stone quarry,
and he bashed his brains out.
