On a Monday John

Regular Monday visitors may be scratching their head, but you are in the right place, on the right day, and will receive your entertainment nugget.

On one hand, john is slang for toilet, bathroom, and prostitute patron. Other times, we think about famous people named John as John Kennedy, John Adams, 25 different popes, John Wayne, John the Baptist, and countless others.

At this blog and others hosted by distinguished people as Al, Mckenzie, Melissa, Nonnie, Padre Steve, and others, we too know John. This Ohioan with Illinois roots is a regular visitor and commenter – yes, philosophical legend. Through his use of military history, science fiction, satire, humor, and experience with interpreting goat speak, John frequently graces our presence with his ______. (you can fill in the blank)

It’s a toast to John! If Rossini would have only had the foresight to title this famous work as the John Tells Overture. Have a good week everyone. Oops, I almost forgot – and you too John. Make sure to tell Blackjack (the goat) about this post.

On Hands Monday Music

With a title like this, you may be expecting Handel. Although that may be a good idea for the future, Handel isn’t today’s theme.

Since football season is underway, today is the perfect time to introduce hands into the Monday Morning Music feature. After all, we hear broadcasters use terms as good hands, bad hands, hands team, and hands of stone to describe various abilities.

Opinion in the Shorts Vol. 35 brought you One-String Willy playing Flight of the Bumble B-String on a one-string guitar. Well today, it another rendition of the same song, but this time with hands – thus renamed Fart of the Bumble Bee. I’m sure Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov is ever so proud of these guys.
