My friend and I created a dance for it in 5th grade. It was stupid, and so is that song. As for that friend, she grew up to be a giant whore. Who knew.

I was going to make a stupid comment about this song but when I read that Beckeye had a giant whore friend my imagination is reeling. How much would a giant whore charge? And how tall is she anyway? I've got to admit giant whores intrigue me.

"You've got to be this tall to ride that whore..."

But does she have "Spartan Spirit"?

Splotchy said...

If I could just use this rare post about "Mickey" to refer to my own post about Mickey.

Thank you, and God Bless.

I loved Weird Al's "I Love Lucy"-themed spoof, "Hey Ricky."

I play this song in the locker room all the time and the chicks dig it. Even the youngsters know all the words.

kristilove, it is iconic isn't it? Did you know a copy of the video is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art?

Johnny, I was just thinking about that earlier. Strangely enough, I've never posted a Weird Al Yankovic video on this blog.

Splotchy, I remember that! Your "heavy Mickey" is a great cadence to run to.

Skylersdad, she's got something, I'll tell you that.

Kirby, Dr MVM and Beckeye...thank you. Now I can't go in our downstairs bathroom and look at our daughter's "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" movie poster any more.

I was going to mention Splotchy's heavy Micky. I think of it every time Micky gets referenced.
