I thought these stories didin't get greenlit without a framer's market reference in the headline.

/didn't rtfa

Who said anything about farmers'?
 
2005-09-17 11:59:19 AM  
Why was he drinking sweet water?

Let em have his 15 minutes of fame!

Heh, I'd love to see any 92 year old rappers in the future release a album.

Big deal. We've all heard of Dr. Dre already.

Will it include lyrics of him coming out of prison, seein' his wife sleep with another man, only to then go to the bar to get slobberin' drunk on beer?

/if not, it wouldn't be a country song

Hehe, when I was a kid we would have our booze bought for us by a guy who was always losing his dentures in the toilet, and he was only about 21!

I seem to remember he had lost his teeth the first time due to a motorcycle accident. All the other times were due to his being a drunk.

Why is this "silly"? So a man who doesn't have a lot of time left in the world wants to leave a few more things behind... I think it's great considering that most old people are just waiting to die and this guy is recording an album.

You need to work in the guy's pickup truck and his dog...

/starting to sound like the intro to a bad joke

It's "silly" because he's old, don't you get it? Sure, it's what most people aspire to be, but c'mon... he's OLD! Old people don't really do stuff for real, they're like elves and the Easter bunny. It's hilarious, right? Right?!?

/already dreading what kids of the day will be like if I make it to be 92...

"The day I lost my dentures in the toilet"? I like his other song "Sweet Neocon" better.

George Burns had a country hit in his later years ("I Wish I Was 18 Again")

As for that joke, it's been done better:

Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
and he told me it was the perfect country and western song
I wrote him back a letter and told him it was NOT the perfect
country and western song because he hadn't said anything about
Momma, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or gettin' drunk.
Well, he sat down and wrote another verse to the song and he sent
it to me and after reading it, I realized that my friend had written
the perfect country and western song. And I felt obliged to include it
on this album. The last verse goes like this here:


Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison.
And I went to pick her up in the rain.
But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by a damned old train.

Or there's always the one about how if you play a country record
backwards, you suddenly sober up, get your wife back, etc. :)

George was in his late seventies when his song came out, so
this guy has a few years on that--props to him

New one hit wonder..
My meat curtains are doing the wave..

When I was in gradeschool we had "grandpa simpson" as a bus driver... the dude didn't like wearing his teeth, so he left them in a tray on the dashboard....

long story short, he slammed on the breaks and his dentures. He insisted to the principle that one of the kids "stole my teeth". And refused to drive until they were returned. He wanted her to search all the kids on the bus.

Another (sane) bus driver searched the asshats bus and found them sitting on the floor next to the heater.

Why he thought some kid would want to touch/steal his teeth... yea, that's what we wondered for the rest of the year. I think he retired in shame as every bus driver in the state knew about that incident, and had a good laugh about it.

Boobies

That is SO weird!! Not just last week my wife found a website with that exact same quote. David Allen Coe, if I'm not mistaken?
 
2005-09-17 04:10:10 PM  
Okay... I'm totally losing it!

That last post of mine of course should be to Boobies

/Paging Dr. Freud...
 
2005-09-17 04:11:17 PM  
Okay... not losing it... something weird in the ol'Fark translation file! ;-)

I find that highly amusing, but that may only be due to the fact that I am listening to that CD right now.

I think the second single should be a good old fashioned love song, like "It All Depends on My Depends".

And Yes, Guy Named Ed, that was from David Allen Coe. Well, DAC sang it, but that friend of his Steve Goodman wrote it.
 
2005-09-17 10:37:06 PM  
Yeah, guy named ed, he got ya.
You can't write ph1rst poaste because the filter, um, filters it.

also, for a more heroic poem style explanation, read his profile.

/nice job, Boobies. I just typed Boobies. I didn't actually type Boobies when I just typed Boobies, I meant to type Boobies, and so I did.
