Musical Musings… Someone Else’s Mixup

Every once in a while, it’s nice to scoff at someone else’s misery mixup.  I’m not free of confusion in this situation, but it involves my boss/friend Paul, and the group Supertramp.

First off, I was unaware they made The Logical Song

…and, well I’ll get to the other song in a little bit.

One day, Paul burst into the office, convinced that the Goo Goo Dolls had ripped off one of Supertramp’s songs.  He swore the end of one of their songs directly stole the ending, but he couldn’t remember which of either.

As I mentioned, I was only familiar with the above tune, so we scoured Goo Goo Dolls’ catalog on YouTube, skipping to just the end of almost all their hits.  When we finally hit upon Give a Little Bit, Paul was elated that this was the song.  Now we only needed to figure out the Supertramp song.

And voila…

I Am Thankful For… Short Weeks!

You gotta hand it to this guy:

Hi five!

Here is the logical reason why:

  • If not for turkeys, we would not have Thanksgiving dinners.
  • Without Thanksgiving dinners, we would not have Thanksgiving day parades and football games to kill time waiting for the food to be ready.
  • Without Thanksgiving day parades and football games, people would not have to skip work.
  • Since so many people would skip work anyway, it became a national holiday so everybody could not work!

Huzzah for having the fourth Thursday of every November off!

We also have to celebrate these idiots:

Overheard by someone in line - "I heard they're selling Ramen noodles for a quarter!"

For anyone not working in retail, these freaks make Friday an easy day to take off as well.

Long weekend, here I come!
