Comments on: Buy, buy Miss American Pie… http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/11/14/buy-buy-miss-american-pie/ News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: GeorgiaPeach http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/11/14/buy-buy-miss-american-pie/comment-page-1/#comment-417593 Tue, 15 Nov 2011 01:36:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/?p=71048#comment-417593 reminds me of my favorite song from Sweeny Todd:

LOVETT: Here we are, now! Hot out of the oven!
TODD: What is that?
LOVETT: It’s priest. Have a little priest.
TODD: Is it really good?
LOVETT: Sir, it’s too good, at least! Then again, they don’t commit sins of the flesh, So it’s pretty fresh.
TODD: Awful lot of fat.
LOVETT: Only where it sat.
TODD: Haven’t you got poet, or something like that?
LOVETT: No, y’see, the trouble with poet is ‘Ow do you know it’s deceased? Try the priest!
TODD: (spoken) Heavenly! Not as hearty as bishop, perhaps, but then again, not as bland as curate, either!
LOVETT: And good for business, too — always leaves you wantin’ more! Trouble is, we only get it on Sundays!
Lawyer’s rather nice.
TODD: If it’s for a price.
LOVETT: Order something else, though, to follow, Since no one should swallow it twice!
TODD: Anything that’s lean.
LOVETT: Well, then, if you’re British and loyal, You might enjoy Royal Marine! Anyway, it’s clean.
Though of course, it tastes of wherever it’s been!
TODD: Is that squire, on the fire?
LOVETT: Mercy no, sir, look closer, You’ll notice it’s grocer!
TODD: Looks thicker, More like vicar!
LOVETT: No, it has to be grocer — It’s green!

BG – I know you were expecting this from me, and I wouldn’t want to disappoint you 😉

Kick the Salmon habit with the OE Blog Network!

They have a link called “Blog” but with no links to the Oddly Enough blog. Because you include a link to their site, seems like they should return the favor. I demand that they include a link to the Oddly Enough blog on their blog — or give freshly baked pies to you and all your regular commenters.

Which is hardly pie.

This is why your blog is the best BG! You have your reader’s interests at heart. I bet that Felix Salmon guy never thinks to give his readers baked goods!

Trust me, I’m a pie baking farm hand…
