I will have to try that sometime.

Show me the way to go home / I'm tired and I want to go to bed... I had a little drink about an hour ago and it got right to my head... Wherever I may roam... by land or sea or foam...

manicpuzzler

If you watch 'Jaws' backwards it's a movie about a shark that keeps throwing up people until they have to open a beach.

msbonne

Smile, you son of a bitch!

manicpuzzler

You put your left rope in, ...

msbonne

Little brown eel comes out of the cave... Swims into the hole... Comes out of the hole... Goes back into the cave again... It's not too good is it Chief?

manicpuzzler

It was a great film, I think it should be re-released. Same film but tweaked with modern shark special effects. I think the (bad) chemistry between the actors actually made the film better. A complete remake would not be good.

Mariposamia

That's 2 out of 3 for me, today. Pretty good! Thanks, Bonnie.

msbonne

I need to have something in the foreground to give it some scale!


Foreground my ass!

Max_Tooney

"Stop playing with yourself" was a great throwaway line, considering he was playing solitaire at the time.

nanab

Not drinking buddies in real life then, you're raining on my parade Max.

msbonne

Shaw was not a well behaved actor on set. Often coming in after drinking.


Stop playing with yourself, Hooper. Slow ahead, if you please.

Max_Tooney

One other thing I remember from the movie (trivia):

Dreyfuss and Shaw (Hooper and Quint) did NOT get along in real life. It was easy for their acting to be viewed as testy towards each other.

nanab

NO

Max_Tooney

In the book, Mr. Hooper ("Mistah Hoopah") perishes.

nanab

There have been over 150 shark sightings off of Cape Cod this summer. Too close to the beaches!

msbonne

No it did not, (at all really). Still, a remarkable and lasting classic that still has a grip on oceanside communities.

Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity.

manicpuzzler

Yes a scary film BB. Didn't follow the book very well.

msbonne

Show me the way to go home / I'm tired and I want to go to bed...Hooper, Quint, Brody: I had a little drink about an hour ago and it got right to my head... Wherever I may roam... by land or sea or foam...

nanab

Please stop before you get to the scary part.

msbonne

Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many captains on this island. $10,000 for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing.

Max_Tooney

(True fact trivia: The actor who portrayed the 'Kintner boy' in adulthood opened a seafood restaurant.)

msbonne

This was no boating accident.

Max_Tooney

“Now look fellas, let’s be reasonable, huh? This is not the time or the place to perform some sort of half ass autopsy on a fish. And I am not going to stand here and see that thing cut open, and see that little Kintner boy spill out all over the dock!”

msbonne

Farewell and adieu to you, Spanish ladies.

Max_Tooney

"Pippet...here, Pippet!"

manicpuzzler

Duh Duh, duh duh ……………….

msbonne

We're gonna need a bigger boat.

Max_Tooney

Well. Quint could track if down for three thousand. But to kill it, it will cost you ten!

manicpuzzler

The eels are 'currently ' protesting about being used in such a manner. Shocking I know!

Max_Tooney

Maybe use an eel to shock it out?

msbonne

Trying to lure it back to its natural environment will not work. Most likely, you will lure out others and create an epidemic.

manicpuzzler

꒰•‿•꒱꒰•‿•꒱꒰•‿•꒱LOL꒰•‿•꒱꒰•‿•꒱꒰•‿•꒱

I am going to have to put the radio on!

msbonne

No, spearworming is illegal in many areas of the world.

nanab

Yes! Me too Bonnie, I had an earworm all day yesterday.

Max_Tooney

I'd not recommend trying to spear it out.

msbonne

Another method. I find that getting the catfish to bite can sometimes be a bit tricky, but if you can, that method works as well.

Max_Tooney

You could try fishing it out? Hold a catfish up to your ear.

msbonne

You really have to shove something in there really hard. You may lose your hearing for a bit, but small price to pay.

manicpuzzler

LOL :)) Off to try it now :))

msbonne

A little pesticide applied directly inside ear canal should fix that......

manicpuzzler

I have a 'king of the road' earworm!!! :((

msbonne

Yup, that be the one.

Stillmanic

And the answer is................'King of the Road'

"King of the Road" is a song written and originally recorded in November 1964 by country singer Roger Miller. The lyrics tell of the day-to-day life of a vagabond hobo who, despite being poor (a "man of means by no means"), revels in his freedom, describing himself humorously as the "king of the road". It was Miller's fifth single for Smash Records.
The popular crossover record hit No. 1 on the US Country chart, No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 1 on the Easy Listening surveys. It was also No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart, and in Norway. Miller recalled that the song was inspired when he was driving and saw a sign on the side of a barn that read, "Trailers for sale or rent". This would become the opening line of the song.
The song has been covered by many other artists, including George Jones, Dean Martin, Val Doonican, Jack Jones, James Booker, The Fabulous Echoes, Boney M., R.E.M., Johnny Paycheck, Glen Campbell, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Boxcar Willie, Randy Travis, Rangers, James Kilbane, John Stevens, the Statler Brothers, Rufus Wainwright & Teddy Thompson, Giant Sand, Peligro, The Proclaimers, Ray Conniff Singers, The Reverend Horton Heat, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Jim White. James "The King" Brown (an Elvis impersonator) performed the song for a 2001 Audi commercial on German TV. Of R.E.M.'s version, a shambolic, drunken, offhand rendering, guitarist Peter Buck would later comment, "If there was any justice in the world, Roger Miller should be able to sue for what we did to this song."

msbonne

Well, he wanted to live on those islands in the stream.

Max_Tooney

What! But I asked him to be my neighbor!

msbonne

They did when then changed him into Fred Rogers.

Max_Tooney

I hate it when they do that! They never did that to Kenny Rogers!

wjl1015

I still sing this song!! :))

msbonne

You were not wrong Max, they simply changed his location after you had correctly posted it.

Max_Tooney

Yes. And I was wrong--he's from Texas. The same 'four things to do' plus one (discuss the 'Horns) applied to Fort Worth during Roger's childhood.

msbonne

I do my best. Roger Miller was Merican!!

Max_Tooney

I missed it, too, at first, lol. msbonne slipped that one in the very cleverly.

nanab

I scrolled up and down, up and down, and up and down trying to find zebra, duh.
Laughing like crazy at my stupidity and your comments.

Max_Tooney

lol @ zebra...I didn't catch that at first...

Max_Tooney

(What would Roger Miller think of all this?)

Max_Tooney

You're dangerously close to the Serengeti, my friend. I hope you've been vaccinated fro Ebola...

msbonne

I sea a lion, a referee, a long necked horse, a large hog with a tusk, and some sort of Giant pig (or something), has a really ling nose that moves around.

I love a safari.

Max_Tooney

Then keep it up! Safari, so good.

msbonne

Of course we did. We needed someplace to go on safaris.

Max_Tooney

(My closest relatives are so very clever!)

Max_Tooney

So if humans first evolved in Africa...you're saying we invented Africa, too? Neato!

msbonne

Well, as I am Merican, I KNOW that the only proper numbers come from here. I believe we invented maths. Everybody knows Merica invented nearly everything - Fire, the wheel, walking upright, the Euro, etc.. The list goes on and on. Therefore, the only proper billion is 1,000,000,000.

Max_Tooney

(Good! The more re-directs, the less likely it is for someone to solve this!)

msbonne: When you say "Comments with msbonne and Max commenting with a song involved, 65.32 billion", do you mean the small American billion (1 000 000 000), or the proper French billion (1 000 000 000 000)?

Way easy

msbonne

Yup, that would be the four.

Max_Tooney

Well, Roger was from Oklahoma. At the time, there were only four things to do there:

1) Talk about the Dust Bowl days
2) Smoke
4) Make profit

msbonne

Hard to believe, that these celebrity chain smokers all died early. Do you suppose it was the stress of fame?

Max_Tooney

Yep. Yet another chain smoker that died way too young (56).

PutterDutt

I think he had a rowdy version of "King of the Road", too, but don't remember the lyrics. He was very funny and not at all stuck on himself.

Max_Tooney

I was going to say that I hope Roger got permission to cover Kenny Rogers' song ("Ruby...") -- but then I remembered that K.R. didn't write it. (Mel Tillis did.)

manicpuzzler

Yes he did seem to be a lovely man :))

Lucky you Ellen :))

Max_Tooney

PD, that is a great story. He always seemed to be a nice guy.

Bubble

Ellen - that's a wonderful memory you carry around with you. Millions of us wish we'd had the opportunity to meet Elvis - I bet he remembered you as well !! (❀ᴗ❀)

Max_Tooney

Bubble, be sure and drain it properly, lol.

nanab

WOW - GREAT story!!!

PutterDutt

Ran into him at the Exit Inn, which was a famous night spot in Nashville. He invited 5 or 6 of us to his motel room as he was wound up and wanted to relax. He sang HIS version of several of his songs which tended to be a bit rowdy. For example, HIS version of "Ruby" went, "She painted up her hips and rolled and curled her pubic hair". After a while, he said that he really needed to get some sleep as he was playing at the Grand Old Opry the next day, but was too keyed up to sleep. I told him that I could put him out in no time. I gave really great back rubs back then. :o)

Bubble

Will try that Max, but oo is very strong tasting ? (❀ᴗ❀)

nanab

More details please PD!

PutterDutt

I know! I know!! And I actually put him to sleep with a back rub many years ago!

manicpuzzler

Well done, in advance :))

 ⁰⁀⁰*ʕ๑‿๑ʔ*⁰⁀⁰*ʕ๑‿๑ʔ*⁰⁀⁰ 

nanab

I know this one.

Max_Tooney

Slather it in extra virgin olive oil. And DON'T undercook it.

Bubble

Got this one Bonnie, a favourite of mine.

If anyone can find turkey bacon that tastes like BACON and not synthetic protein, please let me know. (❀ᴗ❀)

Max_Tooney

Mavis Bacon is considerably less removed from Kevin Bacon than six steps. Now Turkey Bacon, on the other hand, is seven steps removed.

manicpuzzler

LOL the 'song' writers for Eminem? :))

msbonne

That is because Max types fast, and I read fast. Individually, not impressive, but together...…..

manicpuzzler

You two are a touch too speedy with your type of puns!

msbonne

I have tried typing that name into my computer, and just get pictures of bacon (and the odd selfies of Kevin Bacon).

Max_Tooney

She's not my type. Mavis Bacon is.

(Let's see who is old school enough to figure that one out.)

msbonne

Evelyn Wood would be proud of you Max.

Max_Tooney

(Drat--I shouldn't have told them about the speed-reading function!)

msbonne

I think you may have given it away.

Oops.

Max_Tooney

Good point, especially if they go to the 'tools function' and increase the reading speed by a factor of 1.5X...

msbonne

Oh, I don't think it would be all that difficult. 17 gazillion puzzles, those with comments 8.75 gazillion. Comments with Max in them, 2 gazillion. Comment with msbonne and Max, 1.25gazillion. Comments with msbonne and Max commenting with a song involved, 65.32 billion.

They should be able to get there before the answer is given tomorrow.

Max_Tooney

(It would take an entire week to read through them)

Max_Tooney

Oops...

msbonne

Oh Max, now they just have to find the conversation. How hard could it be?

Max_Tooney

I've mentioned this song as recently as two weeks ago in one of my dialogues with msbonne...

msbonne

Another easy one.

Come On Eileen.

manicpuzzler

Another Darwin award….
A 23-year-old man who dropped his keys down a lift shaft was killed when he tried to retrieve them. The man was entering a lift with two work mates when he accidentally dropped his key ring. He asked his mates to hold the lift while he climbed out to retrieve it. He exited via the ceiling trapdoor, and was scrambling down the side of the lift when an adjacent car began to move. It wedged him so firmly against the lift wall that it took police rescuers 3 hours to extract the crushed man, and additional two minutes to retrieve his keys.
