Comments on: Then when I was six, we went to a zoo… http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2010/08/10/then-when-i-was-six-we-went-to-a-zoo/ News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DoctorDoll http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2010/08/10/then-when-i-was-six-we-went-to-a-zoo/comment-page-1/#comment-397656 Sun, 15 Aug 2010 12:26:42 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/?p=49542#comment-397656 Mrs. A-V: In my humble opinion, having to choose between George W. Bush and Obama, and having to choose between a Republican and a Democrat, is like having to choose between a urinary infection and a sexually transmitted disease.

They both hurt when you pee. (I’m told.)

Now, why don’t you go pee in your hands and play with it?

His name was Leo. Leo could not do ONE pushup, not one. Obviously, he was a no-go.

No 2 is Paul Anka’s “You’re Having My Baby,” which at least has the redeeming quality of being used to belt out “You’re having my maggot!” during the move “The Fly.”

One caveat: I haven’t listened to all of Justin Bieber’s songs, so there could be a worse one.

I kid you not. And the metaphors are fresh, not trite at all: his heart “skips a beat.” I mean, like, wow, like that’s so, totally, like, Baby, wow. Image that sung to an upbeat rythm and blues (like, totally, like Disco) beat.

Try to remember me the way I used to be.

Now, I only have one thought: The tragedy of life is not that one dies or grows old or even grows mean and withered with age. The tragedy of life is having a Justin Bieber song running through your head like an earworm. I will not let that happen to me. Farewell, cruel world!

I believe he’s Canadian. He might have actually become something had it not been for a steady diet of poutine and bumbleberry….

Leaving aside the appalling grammatical errors and the excessive use of my least favourite contraction (“I’ma” for “I am going to”), I must admit to a level of admiration for the sheer arrogance of “Many have called but the chosen is you”.

I’m a bit confused though, by
“She makes me happy
I know where I’ll be
Right by your side
‘Cause she is the one”
Who what now ?
