Welcome to the Blog of controversial author and humorist Cindy Cruciger.

This is a moderated blog. First comments are screened and subsequent comments are monitored. Posts not tagged with GCC, Q & A, Pictures and Music may expire after seven days. It depends on how often I house clean this blog. You are free to use any content from this site. Credit would be appreciated, but links back to posts not tagged in the above exceptions will probably 404 eventually so you may want to pull the quote you like and link to the main page for reference. I do this because:

  • A. Content gets old and stale.
  • B. People commenting here and the subject of topics have lives, occasionally change jobs and do not need to live forever via search engines here.
  • C. The fewer reasons people have to sue me, the happier I am.
  • D. It’s just my way.
  • Thank you for visiting.

    ~ Ferfe LaBat aka Cindy Cruciger

    Origins of the nick name Ferfe LaBat which I have used for decades …
    From an article written for Rolling Stone Magazine by Michael O’Donoghue aka Mr. Mike of SNL fame. He spoofed Sally Struthers charity calls with one of his own for a house of prostitution in Paris in a Rolling Stone article. His poster girl for the sexually deprived was Ferfe LaBat. There are very few writers that I consider geniuses of dark humor and beautiful despair, Mr. Mike was one. Christopher Hitchens is another. Hunter S. Thompson was the master. Mr. Mike died in 1994.

    Ferfe is in memory of him.

    Bill Murray’s eulogy of O’Donoghue: “He hated the horrible things in life, and the horrible people in life. And he hated them so good.”
