How about a quarter for each dent.
I’m a bad boy.
There is a feral colony of cats in my neighborhood that a certain group of people “take care of”. However they refuse to spay/neuter the cats. I’ve tried talking to animal control, but those people sabotage the traps (have a heart) by setting them off or stealing them. This spring I started sprinkling catnip seeds in those people’s yards in the attempt to get the cats to stay near their houses once it grows.
Too bad they couldn’t play a recording of the song with the appropriate lyrics, to reclaim the song. I’ve always liked the song and only felt wholesome thoughts when I hear it.
Turkey in the straw wasn’t racist. Racist parodies were attached to the song about 30-50 yrs. afterwards.
you’d be surprised how many songs have had parodies created around them. Yeah, some are really nasty too.
For subtle ones, just look up Spike Jones, or Weird Al.
Around here the trucks drive from park to park. They seldom stop on the road or go into residential areas any more.
I read the article and while there are multiple lyrics based on the same music, you can’t say the song “Turkey In The Straw” is racist in itself. Through history there have been many songs that have parody versions using the same tune, some of which are racist.
Anything from “Yankee Doodle” (based on the music of “All the way to Galway”), “Star Spangled Banner” (Based on “To Anacreon in Heaven”) right on up to Spike Jones, and Weird Al recording parodies of contemporary songs have had “shameful” lyrics attached to them. They don’t necessarily reflect on the initial songs.
Would you ban Pagliacci because Spike Jones sang a parody, or Michael Jackson’s “Bad” because Weird Al sang “Fat” just to name a couple of songs?
Andy still believes “A pint is a pound, all the world round.” refers to the price of ale.
I got JD last month. There was 1 case that was brought to the jury. A woman was accused of DUI and reckless driving, and requested a Jury Trial using 8 jurors (6 + 2 alternates). We had 24 jurors available to start. They had a few questions such as Do you know anyone involved, 2 people were bumped. The next question was “Were you or any immediate family members arrested for DUI?”. I was Juror #2, but they couldn’t fill the panel after that question. We ended with 5 or 6 qualified jurors.
