(Thanks to The Perts)

You older blog people can explain "Shave and a haircut" to the younger blog people, if there are any.

Probably just that RKO signal.

For you, maybe one, younger blog people. I have never.

Do NOT Google what the Shave And A Haircut melody means in Mexico.

" Stop broadcasting reruns of McHale's Navy ", or we'll attack. "

This could be great! The Roswell space aliens tell us the signal translates to:"We are coming to earth to serve man."
What could possibly go wrong?

Two bits!

If Earth sends a signal back, it should be sung by Barry White.

Untold billions to find aliens, and when they answer, it's in hip-hop because that's what they've picked up and think we speak?

The instrumental bridge from "Copacabana"?

wanderer2575--Be very, very careful here. Broadcasting "Copacabana" into space could cause the destruction of our planet. At least that is what the Roswell space aliens told me.

Louie Louie?

If it's the drunken Kingsmen version, I'm all for it.

Ooga-chaka, ooga-ooga
Ooga-chaka, ooga-ooga
Ooga-chaka, ooga-ooga
Ooga-chaka, ooga-ooga

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da

Maybe it would help if they fiddle with the antenna a little, put some aluminum foil on it.

According to scientists there are galaxies that are moving away from use at the speed of light. That proves that there are intelligent life out there that have heard our broadcasts and are getting out of town. The message they sent is "Don't follow us and keep off our lawn".

*knock knock*

"C'mon man, it's Dave. Let me in."

"Dave's not here."

On a related note - during Oscars last Sunday one of movie channels decided to show "Plan 9 From Outer Space". So my choice was obvious and I watched this amazing masterpiece. It is not just very bad special effects, but acting was even worse. It was great.

Qaz--I also liked Plan 9 From Outer Space. Bela Lugosi being dead before making this movie, did a good acting job. The movie was such a stinker I have always wondered what went wrong with Plan 8, or 7---etc.

Shave and a haircut is refetenced in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," for the youngsters


And I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know.

-- Bill Withers
