"I have a tattoo of a bassoon -- not a buffoon or a baboon -- which is a woodwind instrument -- the bassoon not the buffoon or baboon -- on my right bicep; and on my left this motto: Recycle. 'One fist is iron, the other is stee-ell, if the right one don’t a-get ya, the leff one wee-elll' -- though Merle Travis probably didn’t mean that a tough guy could be kayoed by a woodwind instrument or responsible recycling intentions." (edited on 12/11: Merle Travis wrote "One fist is iron...," which is a part of his song, "16 Tons" -- "I owe my soul to the company store" )
