Here We Go Again ….

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016


Two or three times a week, President-elect Asswipe babbles some bullshit – or tweets something stupid – and then his TV Twits spend hours trying to explain what he really meant or how the left-wing media is twisting his words or that Hilly Clinton said something much worse in 1998. It’s happened dozens of times since Rump started to run for President.

How come this guy can’t think before he speaks?  A better question: how come this guy can’t think?

Trump: More nukes!

“Be My Baby” (1963) The Ronettes

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016


In the early 1960’s, the Ronettes were a BLACK girl group  from Spanish Harlem, New York City.  They were lightened up to appeal to predominately white, young record buyers and once opened for the Beatles.

‘Aloutte’ Pluck You

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016


Target had a trippy, colorful commercial with a guaranteed earworm*.  We used to sing the song in kindergarten – in French – having no idea of the meaning.  It’s pretty bizarre.  The commercial’s theme is how Target can change your drab world of dull clothes into bright, exciting colors.

A hot air balloon floats down into brown-town filled with colorful, high energy acrobats. They race through the town whipping off the dull clothes of amazed people and replacing them with flashy apparel.

The song is OK – until you learn what it really says.  Alloute is a small, pretty bird we call a “lark.”  The song goes,

 Little skylark, lovely little skylark
 Little lark, I’ll pluck your feathers off
 I’ll pluck the feathers off your head
 Off your beak
 Off your neck
 Off your wings
 Off your head – off your head
 Little lark, little lark
 O-o-o-o-oh, alloute….

“Alloute” could be the theme song for potential serial killers who start by torturing animals.  I know a lot of fairy tales are pretty grisly too – so hey, I may be making too much of kids being exposed to happy violence.  We saw it when we were kids…

… and look how well we turned out.
