The following conversation happened on twitter last night…
Party time, excellent!
And found its way here…
Steph, I love ya, but you gotta work on your delivery! 😉
I love ya too @H50undercover! It wasn’t until after I read your comment did I realize it was right out of the song. Classic.
Alright one of these days we can do a karaoke duet on this one then! 😉
Oh the song from Queen – great song, very fitting and oh soooo very funny!! Hope everyone was okay – so sad to hear that Japan went through another round of earth quakes as if they haven’t been beaten enough…..its just so jolly awful. I think the weather pattern guy’s is changing around the world., its really a sucky miserable year!! Just pray that all of this will soon blow over and we can all enjoy summer and good news for a change.
Well, that female newscaster is a wee bit funny. Cultural familiarity not a prerequisite for TV news media positions.
If you read Steph Lum’s first comment on this post, familiarity struck her after she had read the teleprompter.
She would have had an easier time if the last half of your tweet hadn’t been cut off. One of her crew set her up, ya think? 😉
Way to go, Bob! LOL. “hey, it rhymes.” *snort* 😀
Funny, I just bought that CD. The vinyl is around the house somewhere, but it’s debatable if it’s still playable.
Sorry about that as soon as I wrote it I looked all over for a delete button like they have in F.B. No mo dakine li’dat. I didn’t mean to say cultural intelligence, I meant to say cultural literacy.
In contemporary society, countless rock songs and their lyrics are woven into the fabric of our being. Bohemian Rhapsody numbers among the top 12 or so of these songs with a one hundred percent immediate recognisability quotient.
The lyrics (even those two lines) are a hair trigger for any brain that exists in today’s society, for that song to immediately be played in the mind, if not sung aloud! I am sorry, but incredulity would be the natural reaction to this level of cultural illiteracy.
Instead of a slightly cognizant response (such as “Freddy Mercury sends us his best” or “the rock group Queen would concur” or of course for the talking head to do another line from the song; “mama miaaa mamamiaaa!”) we get a 14 year old’s rejoiner; “oh lookee! it rhymes.” Better late than never, Tv person. Wish I had a teleprompter in life. Hey, wait; I don’t need one! But I keed, I keed. Don’t mean to sound lacking “aloha” but this is just too jokeworthy! Thank you KGMB or whoever, for mentioning H50undercover and for the entertainment.
Storm in Hawaii I hope everything is good over there
Bob please check your email I’ve sent you an email concerning something
Nice job getting a mention! Wahoo I hope we get more visitors
LOL Yeah that’d be great 🙂
