2001-10-03 07:45:59 PM  
hehehe indeed.
a legend in his own mind.

I didn't need to hear that..its tarnished my Chubby image.

You know.. when animals start to act like Chubby Checker, we do the humane thing and euthanize them.

"When your dancing to Britney Spears and michael Jackson and all the other singers your not dancing your doing the chubby checker."

Ok, after hearing that, I agree with having a statue made of him. No not in his likeness, made of him.
"I am the wheel rock rolls on"
What a maroon.

Yeah, he deserves a spot in the hall of fame because of the great COVER of a song he did. Yeesh, gimme a break.

now, just relax...

Next thing you know, the Beatles are going to want to be statues at the corner you turn to before you enter the courtyard :)
2001-10-03 08:43:53 PM  
nah..think/hope they'd have more taste..

Bongo Fury: I thought it was Dancing Apart to The Beat.

But only the exalted Mr. Checker could say for sure.
2001-10-03 09:14:47 PM  
Bongo: It's his 60th birthday today actually.

What a pompous jack ass. Could he be a bigger blow-hard, I dont think so. I was embarrased to listen to it. I didn't know that anybody could think that highly of themselves.

I think ole chubby is mentally ill : de·lu·sion
Psychiatry. A false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence, especially as a symptom of mental illness: delusions of persecution.

There's a followup interview too:
2001-10-03 09:40:19 PM  
Chubby talks about he invented "dancing apart from the beat"... now, he says that he _INVENTED_ this? so, what hes saying is that NO ONE before him danced alone..? what about american indians that danced around the fire to the beat? or tribes in africa, or australia? CC is full of shiat...

2001-10-03 09:44:59 PM  

Let me make sure I am CRYSTAL CLEAR on this point, a'ight?

Chubby Checker wants the truth told about him? Alright, fine... YOU MADE AMERICA PAY ATTENTION TO A COVER! Methinks someone doth needs a little psych help. But hey, I won't argue... he IS one of the biggest figures in Rock and Roll, but probably not in the way he wants to be known. WAKE THE FARK UP AND SMELL THE MAPLE NUT CRUNCH!

::scratches off "Chubby Checker Jerky" from his food list::

But please... whatever you wanna say, please leave Hayseed Dixie out of it. ^_^

Chubby Checker... you ARE the Dumbest Ass... good-bye!

My fav part was "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame doesn't know how to deal with me because I'm such a giant. They need to [induct me] without ruining the integrity of the other artists."
2001-10-03 10:22:19 PM  
Chubby Checker sounds like Gene Simmons in this interview...he also seems to be taking on the whole "...Gene Simmons from Kiss" persona.

Of all the gin joints and Fark topics in the world,
the Chubby Checker issue becomes the controversial Fark
thread du jour. Who woulda thunk it?

Little Richard says this kind of stuff a lot, but people
generally don't mind because he does it in such an
entertaining and humourously grandiose way. I still cast my
statue vote for Archie Bell and the Drells, from Houston TX
(which he manages to namecheck in almost every song, in
response to a radio jock's comment post-JFK shooting that
"nothing good ever came out of Texas". What, he never
heard "96 Tears" or the 13th Floor Elevators?)...

Oh, and Otis Redding. *Two* statues of Otis, please.
And maybe one of Too $hort, as well.
2001-10-03 10:50:36 PM  
Wow, the formatting. Think of my above post as a poem,
to be read out loud from within a cubicle.

Oh, and also: I believe Major Lance should get a
statue for "The Monkey Time" (if not for his more
subliminable hit "Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm", not to be
confused with "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by the Crash Test

Buy Chubby Checker Beef Jerky!!!! I loved when he was like "VH1 called and said they wanted me to be part of their special.... he said he'ld call back, they never did" yeah cuz you're farking Nuts!

That interview is "SLAP NUTS" funny!
2001-10-04 12:55:44 AM  
His argument is flawed.. The Chubby Checker and all modern dance isn't dance, nor anything resembling it. It's people either embarrassing themselves or not willing to just say "Let's fark."
2001-10-04 11:47:42 AM  
Wow he is looney... "I created dancing" "No one was dancing before me" "You bought underware because of the chubby checker."

what a freak
