A THOUGHT FOR THESE TROUBLED TIMES

Well Long Tall Sally

She's built for speed

She's got everything

That Uncle John need

Ball headed?

Maybe Sally is a ball python.

Hmm, this is from the current 'classic' Dave Barry column. Coincidence?

I saw Uncle John with a ball headed Sally

Jack (in-the-box)'s sister?

oooh baby, oh, oooh baaaa-bby.......... gonna have some fun at work, oooh yeah...

anyone else remember the Beatles cartoon series?

For 'Long Tall Sally' two of the Fab Four were possessed by suits of armor and started fighting each other.

I guess that was better to show kids than anything related to the song.

This song just hasn't been the same since it appeared in the Russian-sub-in-alert-mode-Red-lighted Helicopter ride in the movie Predator. Where else can you see two really huge, muscular guys interracting in one scene where one is a former wrestler-turned actor-later turned governor and the other is a former bodybuilder-turned actor-later turned governor?

Long live Jesse "the Body" and AH-nold!

I am the Walrus
I am the Walrus
I am the Eggman!
Coo Coo CaChoo

Little Richard - king of not so subtle innuendo

Why did I expect that song to morph into Everybody Have Fun Tonight (Gonna Wang Chung Tonight).

r.e.:

Little Richard - king of not so subtle innuendo.

Not to argue - I agree, in principle at least - but whenever I think of Mr. Penneman, in the next moment I'm thinking of Dave's brother (cousin?) Chuck ...

His only #1 (pop chart) song was "My Ding-a-Ling" and I still smile every time I hear it ... as I do with some if Richard's best.

WTF!?!?!?!?

... trouble is, I know what I did wrong ...

Uncle O - we know it too
*winks*

We must sing our alma mater... We must always sing our alma mater:

When I was a little bitty boy
My grandmother bought me a cute little toy.
Silver bells hanging on a string,
She told me it was my ding a ling a ling.
Oh, my ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
My ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
And then mama took me took me to grammar school,
But I stopped off in the vestibue.
Every time that bell would ring,
Catch me playing with my ding a ling a ling.
Oh, my ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
My ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
Once I was climbing the garden wall.
I slipped and had a terrible fall.
I fell so hard I heard bells ring,
But held on to my ding a ling.
Oh, my ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
My ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
Once I was swimming across turtle creek,
Man, them snappers all around my feet.
Sure was hard swimming across that thing
With both hands holding my ding a ling.
Oh, my ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
My ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
This here so song, it ain't so sad.
The cutest little song you ever had.
Those of you who will not sing,
You must be playing with your own ding a ling.
Oh, my ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
My ding a ling, my ding a ling,
I want you to play with my ding a ling.
Your ding a ling, your ding a ling,
We saw you playing with your ding a ling.
My ding a ling, everybody sing,
I want to play with my ding,
Everybody,
my ding a ling,
Oh my ding a ling,
I want to play with my ding a ling.
