Desiccated mummy meat

Doesn’t matter if you heat

It mostly, mainly tastes like feet

Never ever will it meet …

My expectations

***

note ~ this poem comes about because of a microwave dinner (stir fried chicken & rice). I’ve tried it a few times, as it looks good, but the little chunks of chicken are really bad & dried out even though I follow the directions. So I call it desiccated mummy meat. Oh, and I don’t buy it any more!

First song with a musical instrument I thought of. I guess I’m in the mood for being silly today for some reason.

This is actually the first time I’d seen the video, but remember the song well from way back then. This video is so funny, yet so bizarre!  I’ve liked Ray Stevens novelty songs for years, and he has a bunch of them.

***

From a Wiki article:

“Gitarzan” is a novelty song released by Ray Stevens in 1969 about a character who lives in a jungle and forms a musical band with his female partner, Jane, and their pet monkey. The song features Tarzan‘s jungle calls, scat singing, and a funky boogie-woogie, as well as a quote from the song “Swinging on a Star“, with the line “Carrying moonbeams home in a jar” superimposed over an insistent G Major ostinato. The song reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 on 31 May 1969 and #10 in Canada in May 1969. It did best in New Zealand, where it reached #2.[1] The music and lyrics were written by Stevens with a title supplied by Bill Justis. Justis is officially credited as Bill Everette.

“Guitarzan”, by Ray Stevens, can be found on his 1969 album of the same name. It was written by Ray Stevens and Bill Everette, and is on the Monument label.

He’s free as the breeze
He’s always at ease
He lives in the jungle and hangs by his knees
As he swings through the trees
With a trapeze in his B.V.D.s

He’s got a union card and he’s practicing hard
To play, the guitar, gonna be a big star
Yeah, he’s gonna go far
And carry moonbeams home in a jar
He ordered Chet’s guitar course C.O.D.
Makes A and E and he’s working on B
Dig C & W and R & B and even the chimpanzees agree
That one day soon he’ll be a celebrity
Get it, get it, get it, get it

Gitarzan, he’s a guitar man
He’s all you can stand
Give him a hand, Gitarzan

He’s got a girl named Jane
With no last name
Kinda homely and plain
But he loves her just the same
‘Cause she kindles the flame
And it drives him insane
When he hears her say
She really does her thing
It’s her claim to fame
Come on sing one Jane
Baby, baby, oh baby

Baby, oh baby
(How about that, that’s it from Jane, yeah
(Thank you, folks)

They’ve got a pet monkey
He likes to get drunky and sing boogie woogie
And it sounds real funky
Come on, your turn boy
Sing one monkey, you go

(Let’s hear it for the monkey)

On Saturday night they need some excitement
Jane gets right and the monkey gets tight
And their voices unite
In the pale moonlight
And it sounds all right

Yeah, it’s dynamite, it’s out of sight
Let’s hear it right now
Baby, baby oh baby, baby
Shut up baby, I’m trying to sing
Baby
Get it, get it, get it, get it

Gitarzan, and his jungle band
They’re all you can stand
Give him a hand, Gitarzan (hey baby)

Gitarzan, and his jungle band
They’re all you can stand
Give him a hand, Gitarzan Writer/s: Bill Everette, Ray Stevens

Bloganuary # 7 – What Makes You Laugh

Bloganuary # 7 – What Makes You Laugh

***

What always makes me laugh is bloopers, especially printed in headlines, newsletters, signs, advertisements, etc. Also the mistakes made in movies or TV shows makes me laugh.

I’m pretty sure I make a lot myself when talking, by getting my words all mixed up. Talking to some business on the phone is one of the worst for me, and even if I try to order some fast food. It never fails that I mess it up so bad no one even knows what I’m talking about.

Then I get tickled at my own mess ups, and can’t stop laughing. Sometimes I read something wrong or the wrong way, and can’t make sense of what I’m seeing, but then figure it out and laugh about the mistake.

Oh, and those phone automatic word thing when you’re texting … with the word totally different from what you meant to type. Those are so funny most times.

Here’s an example of me seeing something wrong.

What the What? – Random Thoughts & Pics

One day I was unloading stuff from the grocery sack, and for some reason before I took this item out, I thought it was some kind of chocolate layered sponge cake dessert.

Then I looked closer and … it is a package of kitchen sponges! This got me laughing for a long time. hahaha

~

Here’s another blooper mistake I made that totally cracked me up!

We were at the store one day, waiting to check out at the counter. You know how they have all the tempting candies stacked up by the register? Well, I kept looking at one, and it spelled SpunoW. I couldn’t figure out what kind of candy it was. Then, I got a little tingle of excitement, because I was thinking, yay, a new kind to try. Maybe it is made of marshmallow fluff or something. I finally picked it up to see. To my surprise, the package was turned upside down.  When I turned it right side up, it spelled the name of a regular candy I’ve seen many times. (it was in a different, larger package though).

So, turn the word SpunoW around and you get Mounds! haha I couldn’t stop giggling. 🙂
