Handsome Dick Manitoba shares an anecdote about an interview he did about Bob Arihood with a "writer" (quotes his) on his Tumblr:

Told the writer, that Bob worked at the Fillmore East when he was young. “What’s that?”, she asked. At the end of the interview, she asked me to spell my name. “Manito, ah, ya’ know what, just say Handsome Dick Manitoba”… She starts giggling. “Uh, I don’t think my editor will let me print that”. “Why not?” I ask, “that’s my well known punk rock singer name”..’Oh really, you’re a singer?”…Yes, I sang for a band called the Dictators, and I own the bar Manitoba’s ,and I do a national radio program for Little Steven on Sirius-XM radio…and”…”Little Steven, really?…YOU KNOW HIM?…Tell him I love his work”…

He's just napping Glamma! At first, I thought it was kind of cute, Aww, look at the puppy sleeping on a makeshift bed ... then I noticed he or she was on a short lease — imprisoned on a laundry bag ... I liked the photo for the range of emotions that it brought out. Or something.

He is a she, Cookie by name.

She belongs to Stuttering Dave, he of the inappropriate t-shirts...and jokes...and gag gifts.
