Crazy Mother Killer

My Mom called me today. I think she's getting giddy with pre-christmas excitement.

"Can I ask you a very important question, Bab?" She said.

I was a little worried. Very Important Questions tend to involve me having to do something that I don't want to do. At best I usually end up being dragged into some madcap, harebrained scheme à la cancer tree.

"OK Mom. Ask away", I said. I was dreading the question.

"Well, it's very important. I've been thinking about it for a while now and I really do need to know".

"What is it Mom?"

"It's like this, Bab. I really need to find out.....are you human or are you dancer?"

Jesus wept.

She really needs to stop listening to the radio.

Did you ever watch American Bandstand? Well, that has a nice beat, you can dance to it ... Damn I love your mother

A Lewis a dit…

It's always scary when moms, or others, grab hold of some piece of technology or a song or movie or whatever....and they sort of get it, but not really.... Like owning a cell phone but not knowing how to use it. Or hearing the words to a song but knowing nothing about what they mean. Shake it, baby!

wontletlifedefineme a dit…

Oh no... I'd opt for dancer by the way. Much more fun.

Anthony a dit…

Jesus wept? Or Jesus cried in pain?

Mike a dit…

priceless! you have the best mom! :-)

D, she's a star, I'll admit to that...

Lewis, too scary, j'agree. And she absolutely doesn't know how her cell phone works....

Marjolein, me too. Dancer all the way.

LaTanya, he certainly let out quite the squeal. Whether it was excitement or pain I couldn't say. It's the mystery of our lord.

Mike - sure you don't wanna swap? For, like, a car or something?

Stew a dit…

I had never heard this sobg before.

The benefits of living in a trou de cul.

explanation for strange lyrics here

My mother (years ago) went around singing "I believe in Milko" (you sexy thing) She thought it was a promo for chocolates.

I see on the Times and telegraph websites that Hallelujah sung by some reality tv person is No. 1 in UK charts.

Thank god for my home in La France profonde. I may never hear it. I bet half the people think it's a 'religious' song too.

Stew, the trou de cul can be a good place to hide from X-Factor winners. And we all need somewhere to hide from them - I'm currently under the stairs, ignoring the whole thing.

The fact that the song has been covered amazingly well by KD Lang, Jeff Buckley and Lord Rufus Himself says that she is very brave to take it on...and is leaving herself wide open to derision and ridicule.

She does sing it well, but then the faux church choir kick in....

cb a dit…

I'm thinking Blitzen-- or Vixen.

Brett a dit…

Mad, that your inheritance she drinking

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Hey CB - I had you down as a dasher. Or a flamer, one of the two. he he x

Brett - the worrying thing is that she's teatotal. I know, she can't be my mother, right?

12ontheinside a dit…

Your mum's a teatotaller? Maybe there was a mix up in the hospital.

Victor a dit…

I'm too old for some of this :-)

I had to view the video to gain any idea of what your Mum was talking about.

travelling, but not in love a dit…

12oti - it's a question I've asked many times, trust me....

Victor - too old? Never!

CawfeeGuy a dit…

can somebody PLEASE explain to me what, the flaming hell, this song is about. anybody? anyone at all?

Louise a dit…

Is that question from listening to the radio or watching the video. All I got from the video (besides the breathtaking scenery and cool animals) was that the lead singer is cute, and she who doesn't dance (moi) would be willing to dance as much as that human/dancer.

Maybe I SHOULD listen to the radio!
