On the nutritional benefits of fish: “The tail is good for you can run fast. The head is good for your brain. The eyes are good for you eyes. Your eyes are getting bad so you should eat eyes.” – Akemi, August 20 2011.
I had a song stuck in my head all day today.
I suppose it’s only fitting given that, in the episode, Spongebob is infected by an earworm that burrows into his brain and “addicts” him to this catchy tune. Well, the song, Musical Doodle by The Sonars, IS catchy. So catchy, in fact, that I feared I’D been infected by the earworm. I found myself humming it all day – until I finally looked the lyrics up online and actually started singing:
“Round and round the record spins all day.
Listen again it takes you far away.
Trying to stop it is futile.
So just listen now to my musical doodle!
Sadly, the song is unavailable for download on iTunes. What’s with that?!
Anyway, if you were foolish enough to listen to the tune, you’ve no doubt become infected by now as well. Sorry about that. There’s nothing you can do now but spread the joy. Indoctrinate your friends and family to the Musical Doodle masses!
So I was driving to work the other day and noticed I was driving behind this truck –
Note the plate! Mere coincidence? I don’t think so!
Tomorrow, Akemi, Carl, Karen (and possibly Alexander and Sarah) and I will be going to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibit) NOT to check out the shows or the concerts, the rides or events – but to sample some of the weirdest culinary treats this side of the southern U.S. Among the items I’m looking forward to trying tomorrow: deep fried vanilla fudge on a stick, deep fried mac and cheese, whipped sweet butter deep fried in funnel cake batter, and something called The Luthor – a cheeseburger with two glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts in place of the mundane traditional bun. Kind of reminds me of the time I sampled “the triple down”: https://josephmallozzi.com/2010/10/22/october-22nd-the-return-of-the-weird-food-purchase-of-the-day-a-little-something-i-like-to-call-the-triple-down-and-another-au-revoir/
Yep, The Weird Food Purchase of the Day returns in fine fashion. And, to whet your appetite check out the links to some previous Weird Food Purchase of the Day Installments:
