In a comment yesterday, my pal LJ wrote this: "Back in the 80's when I smoked pot I LOVED to take a popular song and change the words to it. I cracked myself up."
Little did LJ know that Cousin Shane and I have done that for years, although without the cannabis. (I guess that gives you an idea of how weird we can be, that we act high without being high. Ha!) For whatever reason, we'll get on a subject, and start changing songs by inserting a different word. And little did LJ know that Shane and I had already exchanged some emails. Thanks to my silly entry the other night (the night that I never went to bed) concerning croutons, I present to you...
The Great Crouton Conversation of 2008
Shane started it off with these:
"these are a few of my favorite croutons....."
"croutons are a many splendored thing...."
"the next time you order a salad, don't forget to say.... no croutons, please...." [from the J. Geils Band song "No Anchovies Please"]
I continued with these:
"Cheer up sleepy Jean...oh what can it mean...to a crouton believer and a homecoming queen"
"Sympathy for the Crouton"
"Her name is Crouton and she dances on the sand...." [To the tune of Duran Duran's "Rio"]
I know I was cracking up, and I bet Shane was cracking up, too! I even thought of a couple more this morning:
"...ain't no crouton high enough, ain't no crouton wide enough, to keep me from youuuu..."
"...little ditty 'bout Jack and Crouton..."
"...little pink croutons for you and me...oo yeah!..."
And in honor of The King, how about this one?
"...everybody in the whole cell block was dancin' to the Crouton Rock..."
Visiting hours are from 9 AM to 5 PM. I hope y'all will come visit me when they take me away. Ha ha!
I don't know how or why Shane and I get onto these running jokes, but we sure have fun with it. Nothing wrong with a little harmless fun, right?
How about you guys? Can you come up with a song or two in tribute to croutons? No rules, other than the word should fit fairly well into the flow of the song. Leave a comment with your suggestions, and I hope you have a laugh along the way!
