Covid-19 lock down has given people way to much free time.

What's next,"10 Rammstein songs that make a good lullaby?"

"10 Edie Brickell songs that don't make you want to shove an ice pick in your ears?"

"I Just Called To Say 'I Love You'" should only be sung in the voice of Linda Richman

You'd think Master Blaster (Jammin') would be on that list.

Also, way to go with the stereotypes, subby.

I'm sort of surprised this headline made the cut at nuFark.  But I'm not sweating it unless someone who is actually Jewish is bothered.  Most people are pretty good about finding humor in their own stereotypes, and also, themselves, find them funny.

Just by way of example:  I was born in Kentucky and constantly joke about how many times I've slept with my sister (I mean, we didn't really sleep, but I think you know what I mean) (and you wouldn't look down on me for it if you'd seen my sister).  Nervous laughter is probably my favorite kind.

By the time Wonder had a number-one hit with "You Are the Sunshine in My Life" in 1973, more than a decade into his career, he was still just 23.

*Of*
my life.

Rammstein has at least 2, if not more slower "Power ballads" per album. So if they have 5 out, there's easily 15. Which means you get to drop the obvious good ones so people go "WHERE IS SEEMAN YOU ASSHOLE" and someone in the comments will say "I got your semen right here" and the world goes on.

/and I like making lists. It's fun!

Power ballad |= lullaby.

Sing "Ohne dich" or "Spring" to a child to help it get to sleep, wait a few years and prepare to pay for therapy.

I'm "actually Jewish". Stereotypes do no one any good.

As long as your racism is casual, you are welcome on fark.

Otherwise, you are welcomed to be mocked (which will happen anyway) ;)
