Kids, If You Want Some Fun

I haven't done an open thread in a long time – maybe ever. Here's your chance to spout off, be clever, whatever. But there is one rule — your post must include a random lyric from a Steely Dan song. Have at it!

I believe this is your first open thread, Mark. Call it your big debut, it's like a dream come true.

Hey, Mr. D, that's Aretha Franklin at the inauguration! You don't remember the Queen of Soul?

They all think I'm crazy, but I'm just growing old.

Mr. Obama: You've got to walk it like you talk it or you'll lose that beat!

Night Writer said...

Mr. Ayers, you can fire(bomb) until he's done-in, but they catch you at the border!

NW is playing! Break out the hats and hooters!

Night Writer said...

Yeah, don't make me do all your dirty work!

Brad Carlson said...

Limited government, low taxes and fewer Democrats. Those are the things I miss most

Mark Heuring said...

Yep. I miss 'em too.

Did you see the spat between John Cornyn and Hillary yesterday? I did not think the girl could be so cruel.

I'm hoping Gino shows up, because that will give someone a chance to say "here come those Santa Ana winds again."

Brad Carlson said...

With the Super Bowl coming up, it's a bettors' paradise. But don't you place any bets, Mark, because you've said that you're not a gamblin' man.

Night Writer said...

Do you think Hiillary would make us do it without the fez on?

(Hey, I've got a case of dynamite, I can hold out here all night.)

Mark Heuring said...

If I take that bet, Brad, you'll be on your knees tomorrow.


Don't make me do it without the Fez on, NW.

I'm actually quite concerned about the market these days. I'm afraid to catch the gray men as they dive from the 14th floor. Now clean this mess up or we'll all end up in jail.

Gino said...

i'm here.
but i do not do steely dan.

they are on my list of 'banned from my life' bands.
they actually rank higher on that list than santana.

Night Writer said...

Aw, Gino, any major dude with half a heart will tell you that sometimes you just gotta throw out your gold teeth and see how they roll.

This, clearly, is the time of the expanding open thread.

Mark Heuring said...

Kick off your high-heeled sneakers, Gino: you can play a different band. How about Cheap Trick? I know you like them. They just seem a little weird.

Gino said...

i wont give myself away, but if you make it about cheap trick i'm gonna raise hell.

W.B. Picklesworth said...

Uhh, wow. Ricky don't lose that number?

Health insurance coverage is a blessing or a curse. It really isn't clear.

That is all.

I think Gino needs a little something to help him play nicer; he needs to add a little Glenfiddich into his eating tube, then he can 'drink Scotch whiskey all night long.'

Gino said...

talk is cheap ,KD, and those rumors aint nice.

Mike said...

Take this message to my brother...you will find him everywhere.

Mike said...

Oh shoot, I did the Doobie Brothers. I guess I'll have to go back, Sting(er), do it again.

Mike said...

California tumbles into the sea...that'll be the day Gino goes back to Steely Dan.

This is fun!

Brad Carlson said...

Sadly, this thread will be done soon.

Are you gatherin' up the tears?

Night Writer said...

Well, no Brad, but I cried when I wrote this comment, and I think I'm just a victim of laughing chance.

Night Writer said...

Who is Picklesworth, and why is he standing in your spangled leather poncho?

Mark Heuring said...

Looks like you guys are having fun. Was out running errands. Is there gas in the car? Yes, there's gas in the car.

Night Writer said...

Are you crazy, are you high
Or just an ordinary guy?
