I have a confession.

If the Beach Boys had sung "I wish they all could be Liverpudlian girls," I would be ticked off at them. I would feel like they were cheating on America with the UK. How wrong of me is that?

Unquestionably, Funny Paper deserves all the glory with rewriting Beatles lyrics! (I do like Paper/Alarm or McFunny, though!...hilarious!) However, I must insist that we use my address on future collaborations so Paul can serve me personally with the copyright infringement lawsuit. I'll be happy to give you half or even 2/3 the credit, but I insist he puts the handcuffs on me! (giggle)

There's a coupla old threads devoted to rewriting Beatles classics! (I'm too lazy to look for 'em, sorry...) Great stuff from Zig, the m.i.a. Mr. Sun king, MeanMrs.M and others I can't remember.

Indian music can't be listened to the same way you hear rock and roll. You cannot do 'Yea Yea' and 'Go Man Go' - Ravi Shankar

I heard Paul quit his job at the police department and got himself a steady job -- Bounty Hunter (he moonlights as a rock star).

There remains One That Got Away, however:

Speaking of spewing...could someone enlighten me on the original story of Zig that started the comments I see everywhere on the forum that go like "I Zigged" "I pulled a Zig" "Unless you want to Zig"?

Sadly, this thread explains some of it...

One of our former Mods, skye, is dryly hilarious. I would repeatedly make the mistake of reading her posts while drinking coffee. So, I would kid her that every time I spewed coffee while laughing, she owed me a new shirt, tie, keyboard, whatever. That is when the 'spit take' was defined as 'Zigging'.

It was a different time back then (3 whole years ago) - we were a simple people exhibiting simple humor. two-virgins

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
