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.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
