A BURNING PASSION

Key quote: "I asked him what the movement was about, and he said for what he believes in," he said. "I asked him what he believes in, and he said Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Toby Keith."

Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I wanted to burn a pile of junk in the middle of the street....

Hmm? Oh, never mind.

"He also appeared to not be medicated."
It appears that he needs to be medicated.

Thanks, Cat, I needed that. My picnic table is still cold this morning.

awk - bad sync on the last one, sorry - try this version.
Mas cafe ayudara'!

I do too love this blog. Not like my night stand, but the blog is way up there in my devotion.

iggy - one night stand? Is that all you can 'stand'?

Great link, Annie!

If he had called it 'art' instead of a 'movement' he probably could have gotten NEA funding.

Also, the line about "he also appeared not to be medicated" made me laugh out loud. Gee, ya think?

cowhand - me, too! Subtle hilrious journalism.
Thanks, Cat. I helped close that place Friday night. Toby wasn't there, however. Sigh.

*kicks 'a' up to 'hilarious.'*

Why is it that these types always have such terrible looking hair?

Seems a little drastic. I just use Benefiber™ when I wanna start a movement.

I have burning passions too. I can minimize this by using a lubricant.


*check please*

{Triplett added that Cox allegedly admitted to having one glass of wine and an energy drink, but was not intoxicated. He also appeared to not be medicated}

Or able to think, for that matter.

St. George, Utah. Who's tracking the state scores on the Weirdness March Magnet Madness?

That last link is hillarious.

He resembles one of the Olsen twins, can't rightly recall whcih one though. It's his eyes....

snork @ Annie's link

Ya s'pose Toby Keith is a typical Dave Barry guy's guy?

OTOH, the guy in the link didn't look like anybody's typical anything...but he thought he was.

Oy!

Off to shop for daughter's bday! You all have a wonderful day!!

***great links, MKJ & Annie!***

Have fun shopping, Siouxie.

More mundane shopping for me today, I am afraid. Groceries, etc.

Yesterday was
fun
hell
an exercise in tongue-biting
an opportunity to let them make their own choices
who the hell am I kidding they CAN'T be growing up that fast

"interesting",

to say the least, when I spent the day bathing suit and clothes shopping with my 12 and 13-year old daughters.

(Siouxie, my eldest has your love of shoes. God help us all.)

After yesterday, cauliflower and laundry detergent shopping sounds absolutely peaceful.

Later, Blogits! Happy Sunday!

*Slinks out®*

I Love This Blog
(Please feel free to add/alter lyrics as you see fit.)

We got cowboys, we got rednecks
No one's playin' with a full deck
And we got movers, we got shakers
We got jewbans and quakers
Makin' daily life seem like less of a slog

Hmm, hmm, hmmm, I love this blog

We got geezers, we got teasers
We got ladies of leisure
And we got lurkers and blurkers,
Our bosses thinks we're all shirkers
And we'll post instead of sleeping like a log

Hmm, hmm, hmmm, I love this blog

I love this blog
It's my kind of place
Just opening that old homepage
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too hard on which to log
Hmm, hmm, hmmm, I love this blog

Officer Rich Triplett, with the St. George Police Department, said he got a call about a man, Cody Alan Cox, who was allegedly burning things near 2160 W. 1710 North. "I arrested him for reckless burning," he said.

Let's hear it for the Cox sacker. There's never one around when you really need one.

Annie, I was going to post that same thing, one of Toby's best, along with
this one, which IMO is great!

Thanks, El. Toby's great. Although I wouldn't burn stuff in the streets for him. Maybe at my ex's place.
Darn near burned lunch just now, watching the video, I forgot I was cooking.

Thanks, El. I've never heard Toby Keith (or heard of him) before today. Are all of his songs about bar fights?

Just the mention of T*** K****'s name makes me want to puke. And I live in Nashville and have a fondness for country music. He's an enormous *ss.

No daisy, some of his songs are about wanting to be a cowboy and trying to bury his girlfriend behind a concrete wall. And he's from Oklahoma if that helps.

No daisy. He's a county singer so they mostly tell stories. He has one music video with Heather Locklear that makes me want to barf it's so sappy. But a lot of them are about drinking.

Here's a couple more about different subjects. :)
shopping
Honey, I'm home.


Funny you should mention the concrete wall, Doc. ;)

He's also the guy who took on The Dixie Chicks a few years ago after their remark about Dubya, so I don't like his politics, but I like some of his music.

He definitely knows how to strike a nerve. I like him. Of course, I'm just visiting. I don't have to live with him.

It's amazing how some people seem to just have that natural "high" about them, without drugs.

And I meant the guy in the article, not Toby Keith.

He's just a hunka hunka burning couch.

Snork @ Steve! A little less conversation and a lot more lamp burning action.

*channelling Carole King*
So-fa away,
Doesn't anybody stay on their meds anymore?
I would burn the couch and see the cops at my door.
Doesn't help to know you're so-fa away.

Lairbo ... I posted this a long time ago ... so when you said OK ... I looked it up ... and here it is ... again ...

I sorta cleaned up the scansion a bit on a couple of lines ... and covered a couple of missed points ...

I LOVE THIS BLOG
(With apologies, and thanks, to T.K., so as to CMA ...)

We got wheezers, we got geezers
Walkin' five-cent thievers
We got Vikings fans, we got Dodgers
We got Maineiacs and lodgers
And the girls next door just ain't no dogs
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog

We got cows, we got squids
toilet seats without any lids
We got punsters, we got gunsters
Rocker fans and Munsters
Cat lovers and funsters
And the smokers talk about their frogs
Hmm, Hmm, hmm, I love this blog
[Chorus:]
I love this blog
It's my kind of space
Just logging on to the page
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far, come in your everyday togs
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
We've heard short jokes, bad ones,
in-between and sad puns
And we got lovers, adventures
and folks just clacking their dentures
and we don't drink beer from an old peat bog
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
Yes I do
I like my truck (when it starts, I'm in luck)
I like my girlfriend (and her family)
I like to take her out to dinner
I like a movie now and then
[Second chorus:]
But I LOVE this blog
It's my kind of space
Just surfing thru the posts
Puts a big smile on my face
No cover charge, come in out of the fog,
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
We got divorcees and a cool Dave - the man
but no jukebox, we're all a bunch of fans
We got railers, we got emailers
Lots of smart-asses and we're none of us failers
If you get too drunk, just sleep out with the hogs
Reason number 672 why
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
If you can stay awake,
there just ain't no quittin' time
take it on the road, or do it at home
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
I just love it

OtU: I'd figured somebody'd beat me to it, just not by three years. I'm glad I didn't try for more verses.


It's all good, Lairbo. The statute of lamentations ran out ages ago.

*snork* at Omar via O the U, and the "statue of lamentations."

I just don't have enough time to blog lately, an' I shorely do miss it.

whoa...OtheU...that's awesome!

snork @ "statute of lamentations" & "hunk-a-hunk-a burning couch" Oouuuch!!

*yawn*

Nah, y'all done good, Lairbo ... in fact, yours reminded me of a couple of variations in verses that might werk ... but I'll leave that fer others to wrassle with ...

A "Statue of Lamentations" figurine for dashboards could be a big seller. Or maybe not.

Try to stay awake there, Eleanor.

"We got weiners, we got losers...."
zzzzzz...
