Auntie Adonisette tried to prevent me from showing this still from 'The Ed Sullivan Show' as she doesn't like to brag about her past achievements, but I believe our followers should see just what a talented gal she was.......
The song "My heart I'll throw - To bazooka Joe" caused a sensation when released in October 1965, and Adonisette, along with her back-up group The Adonais (Art, Andy and Anselm Bugosi) were mobbed wherever they went.........
The singing sensation soon tired of the rock n' roll lifestyle and became a shy recluse, sharing her
Beverly Hills mansion with her beloved tadpoles.....and that is why she never married.......till now.......

Promises Promises

The Bearded Dali (or is it Dolly) has been mistaken. The toupeeees don't need to be any bigger, just tilted frontwards would do fine. Or if placed over the camera lens they could be even smallerer. Also. As well.

Adonisette

Surreal-lady-with-half-a-beard........have you looked in a mirror lately?............
Thank you Juneee for the compliment - you are always so nice.....and very poetic in a poetical sort of way........
Hanne-with-pipe....I did tell the boys about the toupees, but they took no notice........they thought they looked trendy.........(mind you, the young girls were falling at their feet!)........

BTW, Lela's been busy lately, on 'tadpole business'........he says he will post a puzzle-thingy tomorrow.......

Elfie

You are SO right Juneee - the toupees too, very important indeed.....

juneshone

don't forget the toupees Hanne, but that's a very demure little dress

Elfie

Now - what's wrong with glasses and no teeth? - that's how we'll all look some day!! .... or do......!!

Surreal_Heidi

Worst quartet of toups It's ever been my misfortune to espy. They need to be MUCH bigger to hide those hideous visages.

Elfie

Ohhh, I'll take good care of it!! Believe me.....!!

lelabugosi

I'm just here, and have now read all the interesting contributions to the wonderful world of socks.......(and blue food)..........I think I will just buy a new pair........
precious-pebble....yes, that cat could have a lot to answer to......
Hanne-with-pipe.......you may as well just keep it........

juneshone

I'll leave it to him then, the wooden mountain is calling me to bed, first I have to do battle with the fearsome bathroom mouse. Have fun all

Tatinha

Let's beat all the superheroes, June, at once.
She threw them on The Avengers - now the whole world is in danger.
Only Uncle Adonis could save us.

juneshone

thanks teamac thank you, not my words though. I'm a dog person too I just love every mangy mutt of them

teamac

Bravo Junee...Loved the little sock song ...very clever :^)

Elfie

Just think I'll wash the sock and give it back to you, Lela!! Do hope you can find the other one!!

patsquire

I think "now the cat's a welcome mat" is my favorite refrain from your silly soliloquy. Since I'm a dog person and all, you see. Except for that mangy mutt Dogdaze.

juneshone

any more odd socks?

juneshone

Adonisette don't wear no socks

she threw em on my bed - now my poor Teddy's dead
She threw them in her bed - now her dog sleeps in the shed
She threw them under the bed - left all the cockroaches dead
She served them up for lunch - but no one wanted much
She put them in the fridge - now we all live under a bridge
She threw them in the sky - now Superman refuses to fly
She threw them in the air - now Superman's on medicare
She threw them over the fence - haven't seen the neighbor since
She threw them on the wall - now Spiderman won't crawl
She threw them on the ceiling - now the paint's all peeling
She threw them in a boat - now that boat can't float
She threw them at the cat - now the cat's a welcome mat
She threw them on the clock - now the clock don't tick or tock
She threw them up towards heaven - brought down a 7-4-7
She threw them in the garbage can - killed 3 rats and the garbage man
She threw them in the washing machine - now all the clothes are green
She threw them at a squirrel - made that poor squirrel hurl
She threw them at a rock - that rock got up and walked
She threw them at a bus - you should have heard it cuss
She threw them at a flower - now it's praying for an April shower
She threw them in the fire - that made the fire expire
She threw them in my Coke ? I took a sip and nearly croaked.
She threw them at the sun ? Made the sun dial 911
She threw them on a telephone wire - Started the Chicago fire
She threw them in a hole - Wouldn't touch 'em with a 10 foot pole
She thew them in outer space - That's the end of the human race
She threw them at King Kong - That's the end of this silly song

juneshone

Fox in socks,
our game is done, sir.
Thank you for
a lot of fun, sir

juneshone

Black socks, they never get dirty,
The longer you wear them the stronger they get.
Sometimes I think I should wash them,
But something inside me says No, no, not yet.
Not yet, not yet, not yet...

david06520

Am I blue (bzz bzz bzzzzzz)
Am I blue (bzz bzz bzzzzzz)
Ain't these tears in my eyes tellin' you
Am I blue (bzz bzz bzzzzzz)
You would be too
If your plans with your man
Done fell through

There was a time
I was the only one
And now I'm the sad and lonely one, lonely, lonely
Was I gay, (bzzz bzzz)
until today (bzzz bzzz)
Now he's gone and we're through

Am I blue (bzzz bzzz bzzzzzz)
Oh, you know I'm blue
Oh, you make me, make me so blue
Ain't these tears in my eyes tellin' you (bzz bz bz bz bzzzzzz)
Oh, you makin' me so blue
You know, you know, know you do

do
do
dooo wah

One time Alfred Hitchcock gave an elegant dinner party at which ALL the food was blue. He was a great practical joker.

A sock culprit!

Sock it to you! Another song from the Adonisette early album.
"Ole Sock, I return you to your owner.
Ole Sock, you went missing and were a gonner.
Then you showed up, in the bottom of a box,
Thinking all would be right,
But I sent you back in the middle of the night
To the one you left behind (or in front or near or on top of)
Cause I don't want you no more, No more
Ole Sock, I don't want you
No. No. No more!"

lelabugosi

I will tell Adonisette to only use plastic cups for the tadpole wine.....
Tatty-from-Brazil......I look forward to the return of my old socks.......and the blue food....Yum-Yum!......

Tatinha

By the way. The photos'task is almost done.

Elfie

gemmeee, I think you are right about the crystal!!

Tatinha

I found a pair of socks wrapped around some photos inside one of your shoeboxes. They're a bit rotten by moths and something blue is growing on them, I don't know what it is but it seems edible to me. I'll sent them to you.

Elfie

Ohhhhh, I'm SORRY!!

gemstone

Either that or crack all the crystal!

monza006

The song recommended by Tatinha will bring the house down!! A most stirring rendition :~))

lelabugosi

Yes, the only foot that had a sock on it..........I now have no socks.......

Elfie

...remaining on your other foot?? David, you might be right about the allergies.......something fishy.......?!!

david06520

For me it's just allergies

lelabugosi

......I'll go and get the mop........

Elfie

- and especially my eyes - I'll forever be thankful, but it was SO beautiful....... oh, no - now it starts again with the mere thought of it!!! "sniff, sniff, sniff"!

lelabugosi

No, pd-whateveritis.......I never did find that sock - this was the one remaining on my other foot......
Tatty-from-Brazil.....ummm....what to say?........A very nice....er....'song'....I will ask.......(not sure about the church).......
Hanne-with-pipe......I hope my sock helped dry your nose.......

Elfie

You just GOT it David, FANTASTIC!! Thanks Lela - so sweet of you!!

Tatinha

Will Adnosite marry in a church? If so. Can I suggest a gospel song?
'For Our Join' - Para a Nossa Alegria

pdevredis

Does that mean you finally found the sock you lost on my puzzle, or is this the lonely mate?............

patsquire

David, the word you're searching for is...............diddy.

lelabugosi

Here. Hanne.....have a sock......
So melodically numberful, Mr.many-numbers......
We are trying to get them together, raincoat-infusion!.......

teamac

Will the boys reunite to sing with Auntie A for the wedding ?
That would be a fun wedding party :^)

Adonisette

"I'm hungry and I'm lonesome.........and.....
I've seen the way you look at me as I eat my lunch........
I ain't prim and I ain't wholesome...........so.......
C'monoveransitbymehoneybunch!"...........
Those were the words that I sang, while the boys chorused "Oh yeah, oh yeah"........

More fun info in the life of AA!!! Thanks Lela!! :)))))))
(time, 1:23)

patsquire

If anybody expects MOI, prim, proper respectable me, to provide the lyrics to a bawdy 'obscene and objectionable' song, well! I say WELL! I don't even know any obscene and objectionable songs!

Keeping in mind the traditional, indeed universal sign of pawn shops everywhere, the three globes suspended on a bracket above the entrance door, I am reminded of an old American ragtime favorite titled "Meet Me Down At The Pawn Shop Baby, And Kiss Me Under The Balls" but that doesn't have a single dirty word or innuendo in it!

Elfie

That's what I've ALWAYS said: they've got TASTE in Outer Mongolia!!!

ThomasCat

Can anyone help with Adonisette's five o'clock shadow before the wedding??

lelabugosi

"C'monoveransitbymehoneybunch"......strangely enough (or maybe not), that was the name of another Adonisette song........It was the one that got her banned by the BBC, as they felt it to be 'obscene and objectionable'.........(It was a great hit in Outer Mongolia).....

Yes, Hanne-with-pipe..........soup (with chopsticks) and cheese - in a liquid form (with a straw).....
Tatty.....Adonisette informs me that she will sing "C'monoveransitbymehoneybunch" for the first time since 1966.......

Tatinha

I read your song yesterday, Partysquare and I've been laughing since then. What song is Adonisette singing at the wedding? Eternal love one, I suppose.
I think it'd be nice if you wear one of that Katish (the princess) hat, June!

Elfie

Dear Adonisette, I've wondered - still about your teeth - you are so beautifully slim and tender, is it so that you just have soup and eat it using chopsticks?

juneshone

I hope to wear one of my dresses, maybe red, and spike heels with a red feathery notion on my head, or in my head or wherever it takes my fancy

david06520

I believe those stylish hair do's are known as "Comovers", so I have heard them called, but I believe the hair style worn by Ms. Adonisettia is known as a "C'monover" or more formally as a "C'monoveransitbymehoneybunch."

patsquire

Thank you for asking, gemmy. I think in keeping with the moldy-lunch-meat motif announced yesterday, I should wear my pink tuxedo with the white piping. Of course, adhering to personal tradition, I will be wearing an Infantry Blue bow tie. No hat for at which to Wicca to take aim at (or something like that).

lelabugosi

And of course the blacky-crow-thingy would be 'dropping by' so to speak.......curtains and flowery hats a speciality!...............poop!........

gemstone

What are you going to wear to the wedding, chapter and verse (bookie-person and psquirt)? I think I would like to have a lovely, flowery hat...but with SLOG flying around, I don't think it would stay on long.

Adonisette

Funnily enough, our follow-up hit (which was a flop) was called "When I look at Chuck, I find myself chuckling"......
"When I look at Chuck,
I find myself chuckling,
chuckling, chuckling......
I find myself chuckling,
chuck-chuck, chuckling"
I wrote the lyrics myself, believe it or not!...........

Adonisette

Oh my.......With all these compliments, it's just like being a star again!
So, Mr.Squirt.....Obviously you were an admirer!....(Though you never got into my dressing room)......
Mr.Tom-cat.......I had a thorough waxing.....by Mr.Sullivan himself!......

patsquire

I remember the song well, and the wonderfully mellifluous hamoniazationing of the Adonais behind the shrill shriek of Adonisette's woefully untrained voice. If ever there should have been a one-hit wonder it was she, and she graciously covered her exit from the music scene by saying, "I'm tired of rock n' roll, and I vant to be alone. I'm shy. I vill become a recluse."

My heart I'll throw to Bazooka Joe,
the hero of Bastogne.
The Captain said, "Go get those tanks!"
And Joe went out alone.

He fired once, he fired twice.
He fired a dozen times!
And if he'd been a better shot,
They might have held the lines.

But Joe was cross-eyed,
(hit by a truck).
He'd fire a shot and shout, "Oh ****!"
The day was saved with grit and pluck,
But not by Joe, curse the luck.

ThomasCat

Did Adonisette shave her moustache too?

lelabugosi

precious-pebble.......how did you know about their barber, Herr Hoffnung?........and the moustaches, which they shaved off for the show?........

lelabugosi

It must have been such an exciting experience for a young girl to see Adonisette and 'the boys' for the first time.........Anselm (playing the guitar), with his boyish good looks, had adoring fans swooning at his feet in those heady, carefree days.......

gemstone

The Adonais should have had a make-over before going public. They look like their barber lives in 1940's Germany. Sure glad they don't have short black moustaches, too!

ThomasCat

My grandmother told me about watching the Ed Sullivan Show on her little black and white TV and she saw Adonisette and The Adonais.....to this day our family, especially the children, have never fully recovered.
