Feeling Down? Get naked and try some Calypso Blues

Have these times got you down? With things like the global economic meltdowns caused by greedy rich assholes. 21st century pirates out to plug the arteries of global commerce and deny Wal-Mart its fully stocked shelves. An insane congresswoman claiming that the president of the United States is one of the horseman of the Apocalypse or the Antichrist. Pandemics and people running to the hospital panicking because some Hispanic kid sneezed on them in line at Wal-Mart, yes I heard that happened today. And the politically undead in Washington moaning "nnnoooooo" at the slightest suggestion of any course of action for the country that doesn't give tax cuts to the above mentioned greedy assholes. With all this going on anyone can get a case of the blues. If this appears to be the situation get naked like me and try some Calypso Blues . Yes, I've embarrassed the kids and my wife is calling the local mental health clinic weighing her options but I'm having fun. If I only had some nice Jamaican ganga now all would be right with the world.

World's always been mad...it's just information availability that makes us realize what a truly mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world it is.

Nice tune...

Ganja? Isn't that for filthy hippies? I once had one of my Senior Enlisted tell me "Sir, the day after I retire I'm going to smoke a joint and suck a dick. And if I like either, I'm suing!"

Chef Cthulhu said...

Oops...one too many "mad"s...like I said I have no idea what this ganja stuff is...

I was about to say no way in hell to your plan, but if it scares the kids away so they won't bother me, and I KNOW it'll scare the wife away, then I might have to, er, roll with it.

Keshi: I think the world has in a sense always been quite mad. Its just we now have an excessive amount of knuckleheads that take themselves far too seriously.

As for what Jamaican ganga is like? I have always been as pure and innocent as a puppy and would have no idea about that stuff......Okay you can stop laughing now.

Chef Cthulhu: I agree fully about the availability of information thing. I use to really enjoy watching the news as a kid but now with twenty-four hour cable channels always needing something to hook the viewer I frankly find that I have to skip the news for several days at a time. Totally ignoring Fox Noise even my favorite, MSNBC, is too much at times. Of course I find myself drawn back in whenever I hear that goddess Alex Witt's voice.

One of my cousins is in the Air Force right now and planning to make it a career, then retire to a small trailer in some dusty part of Mexico and smoke reefer all day. Sounds like a damn good plan because dove tailing back to the point of too much info I have found that I often find my fellow humans very disgusting. Might be best if I do the same as my cousin.

Randal: Blogging naked has the added benefit of making the in-laws want to avoid me when they come over, that is always a plus.

Lime: You know, wine would work as well. Not that I would know about such things but good ganga can really smell up a place. Given the screaming ninnies I live around, all hapless republicans, I know someone would snitch if they smelled anything.

BB ur right...the world has always been mad but right now we've all become a too-much-information-fed-extraparanoid-outrageous-plastic Species that soon I hope wud be EXTINCT!


**I have always been as pure and innocent as a puppy and would have no idea about that stuff..

LOL ok! ;-)

Keshi.

This spring is so crazy, my only refuge is Dodger Baseball. Manny Rocks!

Distributorcap said...

i think i am gonna bundle up and listen to barry manilow --- more sane than the world is today

(and BM sucks)

LOL

Vigilante said...

Barry M sucks big time. major league.

Sara Sue said...

BUT ... let's look at the bright side of things ... soon the rich will be poor too, we're being forced to embrace alternative fuels, the next pandemic will wipe out half of the idiots on Earth and marijuana just keeps getting better and better! ~~~~TOKE~~~~

Beach Bum said...

Keshi: You sound like you doubt me and my fresh driven snow innocence?

Damn, your good!

Vigil: I really need to hit one of the AA minor league games here in Columbia. Haven't done it in years.

DCap and Vigil: Yeah, Barry sucks but I strangely dig the Pina Colada song.

Sara Sue: As long as the pandemic hits recently retired politicians living both in Dallas and various undisclosed locations.

lime said...

lol, just to clarify, in trinidad "wine" does not refer to fermented grapes. it is the pelvic gyrations that accompany calypso music when dancing. ;)

Melvin said...
