Chocolate Rain

It’s been awhile since my last post. Not that nothings been happening; quite the opposite. Too much to talk about.

But I had to stop a minute to talk about Chocolate Rain. I don’t get the popularity of the youtube video, actually. It’s a love it or hate it kind of thing, and I’m stuck right in the middle. I think it’s a terrible song, and an unspired video, but I think it takes a lot of guts to do your own thing and put it out there for public critique.

There are a couple of parodies, however, that are priceless. Like:

When I first heard about the song, but hadn’t seen the video yet, I thought chocolate rain was about raining, you know…chocolates. Imagine my disappointment. I guess, because of that, the first parody is my favorite.

Things that amuse me

I know you’ve seen it before. Look again. Still funny, huh?

These Songs:

2 High 4 The Supermarket by the Uninvited

Suicide by Bobby Gaylor

Trigger Happy by Weird Al
and You Don’t Love Me Anymore, and just about everything he’s ever recorded

And just about anything weird, strange, unusual and goofy or out of place.

Like what? you ask.

I saw a bobble-head Edgar Allen Poe on eBay today. That’s amusing.

Someone tried unsuccessfully to sell some cow poop he said he picked up at Area 51. Slightly amusing. He said many unusual things happened at the time he was there, but picking up cow poop wasn’t unusual. That’s amusing.

Nothing on the above list is laugh-out-loud funny. That stuff doesn’t happen all the time. But amusing, well it’s all around us. I figure if you cram a whole bunch of amusing things together, you can get a pretty darned good chuckle. Maybe even a great big belly laugh every now and then.
