On Stuff From Simpler Times - Part 1

A white person speaking jive, if done well and if done sincerely, is one of the most reliable ways to get laughs. Consider Barbara Billingsley with her "just hang loose, blood" from Airplane. Solid.

That is humor that stands the test of time (i.e., it's still funny, twenty-five years later).

Well, back in more recent simpler times, when everybody having email in their offices was relatively new and institutions had not yet erected the firewalls and enacted the policies and generally otherwise become reasonably successful at disrupting their employees' efforts to fritter away their work day, somebody made this Delta "Jive" Commercial. (Click to enjoy/listen.)

For your enjoyment, the preceding paragraph presented by Gizoogle:
  • W-to-tha-izzell, back in mizzy recent bitch times, wizzy everybody mobbin' email in they offices was relatively new n institutions had not yet erected tha firewalls n enacted tha policies n generally otherwise become reasonably successful at doggy stylin' they employees' efforts ta gangsta away they wiznork day, somebody made this Delta "Jive" Commercial .

Now back to our regular programming ...

Peep Delta.

CONCLUSION:

Yes, those were the dayzazzles.

Tis true Flamingo 1. I am blogless. While I have had martinis with the idea of a blog, those who know and love be will also tell you that I am a lunatic.

A weblog of my inner-psyche would be a cross between the movie The Cell, and reading the journals kept by Kevin Spacey's character in the move Seven. Eventually it would liquify your bowels.

Besides, I don't think anyone wants to read the day to day drudgery of a man who's favorite article of clothing is an orange jumpsuit.

Those jumpsuits help a brotha put the hammer down on the stationary bike in motel exercise rooms.
