LIFE HAS A WAY


















Buncha doped up hippies
beatin' on their drums...
Buncha drunken rednecks
beatin' on their WOMEN

Buncha doped up hippies
dancing in the street...
Buncha drunken rednecks
PEEING in the street

Buncha doped up hippies
hitting you up for spare change...
Buncha drunken rednecks
hitting you UPSIDE THE HEAD

Buncha doped up hippies
having sex like animals...
Buncha drunken up rednecks
having sex WITH animals

Buncha doped up hippies
could greatly benefit from higher consciousness...
Buncha drunken rednecks
could greatly benefit from higher IQ

Buncha doped up hippies
face down in the potato salad...
Buncha drunken rednecks
FACE DOWN IN THE POTATO SALAD!

Life has a way
of ironing out
the little differences
between us

    Hey, it's a more efficient way of infusing food...no utensils needed!

    SIR PERCY,
    Nice to hear it...I was concerned you might be losing your hypersensitivity!

  7. TALON,
    Let he who is without ever being face down in the potato salad cast the first stone!

    KKRIGE,
    Just pull them up by the hair, take a few scoops, and ease them down back in it. ;)

    SHE,
    And I tip my hat to you as well!

  8. Very very good. I literally LOL(ed)at stanzas 4 + 5. Re. the potato salad, us(I mean those) doped up hippies would be licking the bowl proclaiming it was the best potato salad that we (I mean they)had ever tasted.

  11. This sounds like all my relatives when I was growing up. My grandmother was very propoer, of course, and the worst thing she could think of to say to express her opinion of my hair was that I looked like a Beatle. Which I didn't, but she preferred the slicked back Brylcreem look. Good one, sir.

  16. ARLENE,
    I'll be there licking it along with you!

    LORRAINE,
    The worst part of it is trying to pick the hairs and stuff out of the potato salad once they've left. LOL

    DUSTUS,
    Much appreciated!

    GLYNN,
    The "Wet Head" is dead! :)

    BKM,
    Peaceful coexistence, eh? The only way such disparate folks can get along is when they are totally wasted.

    DOUG,
    Funny! We are often drunk with it, are we not?

  21. Thanks for coming by my blog. I found this funny, cool, and really true (I live in TX for goodness sake)..so I read it twice and believe I've seen all these folks in the potato salad at least one. Drunk, stoned and stupid! Cheers. Gay

    Thanks so much...sometimes you just gotta go for the belly laugh!

    BEACHANNY,

    Drunk, Stoned, and Stupid...sounds like a country song...or it should be one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Don't need a song for me to be stupid. A long time since I've been drunk and stoned.

    This write just rolled along like Ole Man River. Kept rolling along, then OVER THE DAM...and into the POTATO SALAD--which must have been laced with something.

    MOST enjoyable reading this post, Sir!

  38. Now I will never be the same on the other side of the picnic table when they serve potato salad. Ugh! The irony is funny yes, but true. Hippies and rednecks, there are a lot of them in pockets in and around Oregon where I reside.

    Cheers,
    Joanny
