Shim Sham Shimmy by Champion Jack Dupree

I remember Ma had the 78 rpm of this one...I believe its still here somewhere... although I doubt we have anything that PLAYS 78s at this point...

Anyway, hope y'all are doing well this weekend...

...Perpetual Nonsense Post...

...Now, THIS feature hopefully won't scare any of is nothing more than 'random thoughts' which are 'pun-like', witty, and/or just downright strange... as all other 'pages' I guess it's OK if you wish to contribute to this feature, but, I honestly don't expect y'all to operate at the same level of freakishness which I do from time to time... and, as always, no potty-mouth entries, please... 

The one thing to remember is, these 'thoughts' are all 'independent' of each other, thus there's no real continuity could throw all these in a hat and mix them up, and the order would be most likely just as effective as the presentation here...

OK, SO...don't say I didn't warn y'all...

The lower the billboard, the shorter the clientele.

Breaking toes by the dozen.

He eats a gallon of oysters a day…that’s why we call him “Oysterman”.

Nightmare Dinner Host.

Her kinfolk have infested our house…hm? What’s that, honey? …Oh, pardon me, they are ‘just visiting’, according to her… I’ve called the Orkin dude, just in case…

I’m not internationally known, but I’m known to rock the microphone…

Whales wail in Wales.

She bellows out cryptic Polynesian war chants.

Cheetos without orange fingers.

Your Patronage, While Not Fully Understood, Is Nevertheless Appreciated.

You know, there was a time when all this hand-waving, toe-tapping, and inaudible warbling under one’s breath just wasn’t allowed in a pinochle tournament…it’s truly a sad day for the game… 

Department of Redundancy Department.

Brain surgery for people who don’t have any brains to start with…

Some dude just called from the Stubbed Toe Society.

…The concept of “time” is little more than a mundane numerical system contrived by alleged “intellectuals”, which may as well be based upon the number of raindrops that fall upon one’s outstretched palm before it obtains a prune-like texture…

Sweaty polish women with undulating breasts appear, asking me for claw hammers and pick axes!

Rap groups without YO.

I guess I love you too much to talk to you. So I’ll just write passionate words on the kitchen wall, where you roll up your burritos.

Yo-yos with strings attached.

Food vendors overheard working the stands at the recent Moroccan Camel Derby: “COOS-COOS…TABOOLI… COOS-COOS…TABOOLI…”

Is ogling a woman illegal in this state?

…Stunned by the sudden shifting of Teutonic plates, the morbidly obese seismologist laboriously turns and mumbles some technical jargon towards the camera, in a vain attempt to save face; but in the final analysis, he only accomplishes spraying stale cruller crumbs forth from his cavernous craw…

He once had a nosebleed. She solved the problem by shoving mass quantities of cotton up his snoot. However, it was so compacted, that he could not remove it, hence he developed laryngitis and died, as was to be expected with a snoot full of cotton. She didn’t show at his funeral. After all, she killed him, why should she bury him?

…Oh, by the way, how’s your mother? Yes, your MUTHA…. I know she’s there, because I can hear her BARKING in the background…

...Thomas Alva Edison suddenly appears in a vision, apparently disgruntled about something…

The lady at the haberdashery asked me if I needed some help; I said “no thanks, just looking”… then she said “Well, if you need help, my name is Carol…” …weird – she was the first person I’ve ever met that had a conditional identity… what if I DIDN’T need help? What would her name be then? Huh?

...Post Time...

...well, I have barraged you with numerous posts... but, actually, I am just 'revamping' this thing to make it a bit easier to deal with... these posts just posted will be 'perpetual', in that I'll just add more stuff...and y'all feel free to add comments at will...

I did away with the 'pages' section, as it just...wasn't working, y'all...

And hopefully, I can start somewhat 'regular posting', for current events, and get y'all's take on it...

As a result, I'll just put a 'LINK' to these posts somewhere up tiop, so ya can always link to it...cause I KNOW y'all want to catch up on huey's fav music lyrics... and so forth...

Hope y'all are well...and tell all your friends about the nutty crunch that IS NBABOH... We're open for business...AGAIN!!!!


...Perpetual Music Lyrics Post...

OK...this will be a 'perpetual' feature here, of cool, clever, and/or poignant song lyrics from ANY genre (although Rock will be the dominant one here...). I'll keep adding to the list over time, but Y'ALL please feel free to add ones you like as well - I'll note your contribution when added to the list (please notice you CAN comment on the 'page' feature). You can have one line, two, or even more, but typically the briefer the better... hopefully the ones I start out with will give you the 'gist' of the exercise.
The only other rule, as alluded to in the 'Hi-Y'all' post, is - no profanity, please. or, at least please use proper '***' for the offending word... Thanks, y'all.

...Perpetual Movie Quotes Post...

THIS feature will also be a 'running deal', listing memorable movie lines, most likely from the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood, which to me is 1930-1945-ish... although I'm sure a lot of 'newer' films will find their way into the proceedings... the lines may be pretty familiar, but we are REALLY looking for those 'hidden gems' that aren't generally part of the lexicon of pop culture... but, hey, if you dig one of those, feel free to post it!
AND, any contributions by YOU will be greatly appreciated as well! Just post a comment to this page...the only rule, as aforementioned in various locations, is to 'minimize' questionable language (i.e., would you feel comfortable saying it front of your preacher, teacher, and/or mama) - and if a line DOES contain one of these, please just use the ol' "*****" technique... thanks in advance for your efforts concerning this matter.

SO...Here We Go!!!
