A Christmas Song

The topic from the folks at Theme Thursday this week is "snow". Now perhaps the most common take on this theme is Jingle Bells because of the line "Dashing through the snow". Well, we're about as far as you can get from common at nonamedufus. So here's an uncommon take...

GOING ROGUE

Dashing through the states
In a Gulfstream private jet
O'er the bookstores we go
Laughing at the stupid gets
Bucks them Billy-Bobs bring
To buy my silly book
What fun it is to laugh and sing
"Gotchya media's mistook"


The button-down mind of Sarah Palin

Going Rogue, Going Rogue
Going to grab power
Oh, what fun it is to ride
Going Rogue, Going Rogue
They think I'm travelling by bus
Oh, what fun it is to fool
The people of the continental US


It's a bus, plane and simple

A month or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Todd was outta here
And the governership I'd let slide
My book is a best seller
People gush - gosh, darn, heck
McCain can hoot and holler
But I love that slick Glenn Beck


Todd, can you see Russia from here? Bye!

Going Rogue, Going Rogue
Going to grab power
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a Gulfstream at $14k an hour
Going Rogue, Going Rogue
They think I'm travelling by bus
Oh, what fun it is to fool
The people of the continental US, yeah!*

Are Canadians allowed to pick on Sarah?

LOL. Just remember: You're between Alaska and the Lower 48... You're surrounded!
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog: Laughing all the way.
nonamedufus said…
John: Of course. I do it about once a week.
Quirkyloon said…
Ha! Terrific rendition of the old popular Christmas song!

Loved it!

Where's the moose chili?


word veri: recalfs
Don said…
I'd do her even if her book sucked. As long as she did too! I'm with moooooog on this one.
JeffScape said…
I'm in Russia. I'm staring back at her.
Wings said…
Fun piece, but can we retire any and all mention of this chick with the end of 2009?
Me-Me King said…
Dufus, you wrote a clever song
Can American all be wrong?
To buy her book and take a look
Hey, moooooog she's wearing a thong!

Ohhhhhhh.....
Brian Miller said…
tee hee. love it...happy tt!
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Thanks. I had fun with it. I think she left it in Alaska, thank goodness.
nonamedufus said…
Don: I wonder if Tiger Woods beat you to it?
nonamedufus said…
JeffScape: Wave, man.
nonamedufus said…
Wings: I'm with you. Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to happen.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Don't encourage him!
nonamedufus said…
Brian: Thanks, man. Happy TT.
Ronda Laveen said…
Oh, going rogue! I thought it was getting rouge.
Chris Wolf said…
Dang-didn't think this angle at all! Bravo!
nonamedufus said…
Ronda: Yeah, I could have gone in that direction too.
nonamedufus said…
Stephanie: Thanks!
nonamedufus said…
Chris: Sometimes the mind works in mysterious ways.
Tom said…
who said she's hot?! Ok, compared to Howard Taft, for sure.
nonamedufus said…
Tom: Not me. I never said she was hot. Afraid I've got some misguided friends.
AngelMay said…
If her book is written anything like she speaks, I'd rather be stranded in a snowstorm - forever.
Dot-Com said…
Ha ha, great new version of an old song! Me likes!
nonamedufus said…
Angel May: You know when asked she said she couldn't comment on the Kyoto Accord as she'd only ever seen the Honda.
nonamedufus said…
Dot-Com: I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Palin's hot? I think Moooog needs a new fantasy. Speaking of poems, my captcha word is "valinga." That sounds dirty, like most of what Palin and Glenn Beck have to say.

Nice poem, NoName.
nonamedufus said…
Mike" Valinga all the way, hey!
TheWordWire said…
The thing I like best about Christmas music is that it's only popular for a month before people get SO SICK of it they can't stand to hear anymore. With luck, any mention of Going Rogue will be crammed in the proverbial attic come January.
nonamedufus said…
WordWire: With any luck, indeed! But I think, unfortunately, this is just a practice run for 2012 and we'll have to put up with her for some time yet - sigh.
Dreamhaven said…
Very original take on snow, lol. Happy TT
nonamedufus said…
Dreamhaven: Thanks a lot. Glad you liked it.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
