I realized during this process that I would make a really shitty teacher. Kids would never get their papers back because I am far to lazy to grade them.
Hmmm, where was I going with this. Oh yeah, we have a winner in my Faux Name That Tune Game. What was interesting with the results was that I was expecting most people to get blocks of answers right. In other words, you may know all the songs of the 60s and 70s but not the most recent. Not really the case which was quite impressive.
1. And we’re in trouble deep. 2. Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Good. 3. Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet. 4. They knock me out when I’m down there. 5. I’ll pop a cap in your ass. 6. And it’s time for a pay raise. 7. We’ll drink a Corona and lick a lime. 8. Yet your body is so sweaty you’re hard to hold. 9. So come on fellow, get out of those jeans. 10. So pay up bitch. 11. Then up, then down, then up, then down, then… 12. And that’s as it should be. 13. You’re making my ears sore. 14. Because I still like to suck tits. 15. Then pisses in the sick. 16. For a man-hole cover.
A solid four correct and the rest how the song really SHOULD have been so he gets honorable mention for that.
Second Place goes to Libby who didn't even want to PLAY but got 7 correct and beat the next runner up by 2. I knew she would do well. I can spot a fellow music aficionado a mile away...... or several thousand miles away as the case may be.
And the winner is.......
BO who got TWELVE correct. Let me tell you that impressed the HELL out of me. She got these lines freakin' word for word. Too bad they don't have the real Name The Tune anymore because girlfriend would make a fortune!
Now if you three multitalented players would email me your addresses I will send your priceless awards to you as soon as possible. (Which means as soon as I get around to it.)
Congratulations and thanks to everyone else who participated.
You're all winners in my book..wink.
