Weird Lyrics and Other Shits

Murphy's Law, movies and exams all combine to produce the following apothegm - "The best movies will be shown on TV the night before your exam!" So far this maxim has proved to be true on numerous occasions, as far as I am concerned. Luckily, since I am not that great a movie fan it's not too bad.

The other day one of my friends was asked, "What physical abnormality would have distinguished Adam from the rest of mankind?"

His answer was, "He was born naked!"

How exactly were you born, mister? In a three piece suit? No? I didn't think so!

The actual answer was supposed to be that Adam didn't have a navel.

I was watching a show on VH1 called The Most Awesomely Bad #1's Ever, and I realized that some really famous songs have the stupidest of lyrics. For example, The Look by Roxette -

Walking like a man, hitting like a hammer
She's a juvenile scam, never was a quitter
Tasty like a raindrop, she's got the look
Heavenly bound cos heaven's got a number
When she's spinning me around, kissing is a colour
Her loving is a wild dog, she's got the look

I'm sorry, but what in the world is half of that supposed to mean? 'Tasty like a raindrop'? 'Kissing is a colour'? And don't even get me started on the other phrases!

Fire in the ice, naked to the T-bone
Is a lover's disguise, banging on the head drum
Shaking like a mad bull, she's got the look
Swaying to the band, moving like a hammer
She's a miracle man, loving is the ocean
Kissing is the wet sand, she's got the look

Yeah, here's some more from the same song. Now kissing is the wet sand? How could it ever have been a #1?

I've been to Rajneesh's Osho Ashram quite a few times and it never fails to fascinate me each time. It's also inspired me to think of starting something like that myself. Look at the plus points - I get to make all the rules (if I say free sex for everyone, then free sex it is), everyone will have to worship me as a Bhagwan (God), and I'll become rich! All I need is some capital and I can be on my way! Anyone interested in joining me in this *ahem cough* holy endeavor?

Yesterday apparently was World Expression's Day. So if you had to come up with one word/expression to describe me what would it be? I've already got two answers - sarcastic and witty! (I think the second person was referring to some one else here!)

Being a guru and having an ashram where you get to make up all the rules is almost every teenager's dream. One feature of my adolescent hypothetical ashram was that I was the only guy in the whole place. The other rules are somewhat unmentionable, but you can guess, can't you?

i like the "only guy" thought... but u prob wudnt be able to satisfy all the women.. n they might get pissed bcoz of tht n leave... i think hving a few guys might be the wiser option.. tht's the way i'll go ...

but not too many guys... say ratio of 1:8 guy/gal!!!
