(“Spirit in the Sky” by Norman Greenbaum)
So today is One-Hit Wonder Day, at least according to the increasingly-bored news cycle that would clearly not like to talk about the conflict in Syria or the sordid detalis about Marc Leder, the private equity executive who hosted the $50,000-a-plate dinner (no, I did not type too many zeros) at which Mitt Romney dismissed nearly half the country as hopeless.

Since I assume this “holiday” was cooked up just to sell more cards to the friends of I suggest we find our own gifts instead, just to stick it to Hallmark. What to get, what to get…
Right Said Fred – A shirt (not to sexy, though)
Los Del Rio – Condoms, at least two.
Dexy’s Midnight Runners – A new pretty red dress.
Bobby McFerrin – A book of Meher Baba’s teachings.
Europe – Tang.
And no, Vanilla Ice was NOT a one-hit wonder. Don’t you remember his sweet song from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?! What’s wrong with you people?
