That would not be worse - that would be better.

But weep that they bin too small to sin to the height of their desire,

Me and my sister were singing "Put on your sunday clothes" (from Hello Dolly, though we know it from Wall-e) for quite some time today. Not the words, just dodo dodo do do-do do-do doooo dodoooooo. We started singing it just to establish a rhythm while assembleing campaign signs for some upcoming election that's not even in our district. By the end of the trip we had linked arms and were singing while doing some kind of dancy-walk through the aisles of Cosco. We got some entertaining looks.

I've got the theme song from Invader Zim stuck in my head.

Earlier I had "When you're a Jet you're a Jet all the way" (just the one line, Tank!, by The Seatbelts, and some flogging molly stuck in my head. At the same time. :paranoid:

On my way home from work today I heard an ad for Bumblebee tuna, and now the damned jingle is playing endlessly in my skull.

I've already posted this in the Person Below Me thread but I think it deserves repeating here - The Llama Song.

"here's a llama, there's a llama, and another little llama, fuzzy llama, funny llama, llama llama, duck"
That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

The great thing about Beaker is his ability to provoke while still being decorous, or at least within acceptable rules of conduct - Qwertyuiopasd

Polkamon by Weird Al. It is a weird song. It most likely is the song bobbleheads are listening to when their oversized heads begin to furiously move from side to side. In fact this is what i am doing.

I have Maxwell's Silver Hammer playing on a loop in my head. As earworms go though, it's not bad.

Daft Punk's Interstellar 5555. That's because it's playing through my headphones.

Wrong thread, Detective.

I've got Nrrrd Grrrl stuck in my head, since it was playing, but now the skit after it is playing, so the music in my head is still Nrrrd Grrrl.
