    Did I hear, “got myself a gun, got myself a gun” at the end of this video? I am over 50% hearing loss and have been thinking I heard words the speaker did not actually speak.

    Maybe I can find the lyrics to this “song” if I do a search.

    Not realistic. Not a single bikini babe to be seen anywhere on the grounds

  • Mr Smith September 13, 2020, 3:35 PM

    excellent

  • Auntie Analogue September 13, 2020, 3:50 PM

    Putin puttin’ on the dog.

    Putin needs the cavalry unit of the Garde Republicaine for the full dramatic effect: The French have better uniforms and brassier music. From this year’s Bastille Day observance:

    Putin has sleek quiet BMW’s for his escort. Trump has Harleys. He ought to order straight pipes for all his Hog Ridin’ Fools.
    (extra points for the obscure allusion)

    Terry,
    The music is the theme song to the Sopranos…..pretty sure, if that helps, and yes,
    “Woke up this morning and got myself a gun.”

    My dear jwm, I got your “obscure” S. Clay Wilson reference.

    ZAP!

    I don’t know Gerard, he didn’t serve anyone radioactive tea, and he didn’t ask for a list of people to kill today.

    He’s gone soft. 😒

  • Fletcher Christian September 14, 2020, 12:28 AM

    Trudat, nmack. The people Trump kills are anonymous, and die fighting for breath.

    It is good to be king. I personally like what he like Trump does as well. Not necessarily that I like the men but everything they do shows they love their countries.

  • theduchessofkitty September 14, 2020, 7:38 AM

    He acts like a boss. The song fits. Autocrats gotta autocrat.

    Now, let’s do Trump. Let’s see if the song fits him as well.

    When you got it, flaunt it
    Step right up and strut your stuff….

    Was Putin on the way to church? As the viewpoint pans around the church-filled plaza, is that an outdoor assembly in the background? Did anyone else see that?

    You heard right. Here you go, Terry.

    Woke Up This Morning
    Alabama 3

    Well, you woke up this morning
    Got yourself a gun
    Your mama always said you’d be the chosen one

    She said, you’re one in a million, you’ve got to burn to shine
    But you were born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes

    And you woke up this morning
    All that love had gone
    Your papa never told you about right and wrong

    But you’re looking good, baby
    I believe you’re feeling fine (shame about it)
    Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes

    Because you woke up this morning
    Got a blue moon in your eyes
    Woke up this morning
    You got a blue moon in your eyes

    Well, you woke up this morning
    The world turned upside down
    Lord above, thing’s ain’t been the same since Howlin’ Wolf walked into your town
    But you’re one in a million, you’ve got that shotgun shine
    Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes
    You woke up this morning
    You got a blue moon in your eyes
    Woke up this morning
    You got a blue moon in your eyes

    When you woke up this morning everything was gone
    By half past ten your head was going ding-dong
    Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes,
    Like a voice trying to tell you there’s something you should know
    Last night you were flying but today you’re so low
    Ain’t it times like these that make you wonder if you’ll ever know
    The meaning of things as they appear to the others
    Wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers
    Don’t you wish you didn’t function, don’t you wish you didn’t think beyond the next paycheck
    And the next little drink?
    Well, you do, so make up your mind to go on ’cause when you woke up this morning
    Everything you had was gone, everything you had was gone

    Woke up this morning
    Woke up this morning
    Woke up this morning, you want to be, you want to be the chosen one tonight
    Yes, you know, because you just get help yourself

    Woke up this morning
    Woke up this morning
    Woke up this morning
    You got yourself a gun, got yourself a gun, got yourself a gun

    Putin’s more sophisticated nowadays, he’s mimicking Don Draper’s walk and mannerisms, including the chin-thumb touch.

    “Putin’ On The Ritz” is his real theme song.

  • Casey Klahn September 15, 2020, 8:26 AM
