I stole this from this guy, a song from 'back in the day.' Pretty much sums it up I would think, today Jethro Tull speaks for me....



That one sounds better but here is a live version....



You dont care to listen or watch, then here are the lyrics....

Dont want to be a fat man,
People would think that I was
Just good fun.
Would rather be a thin man,
I am so glad to go on being one.
Too much to carry around with you,
No chance of finding a woman who
Will love you in the morning and all the night time too.
Dont want to be a fat man,
Have not the patience to ignore all that.
Hate to admit to myself half of my problems
Came from being fat.
Wont waste my time feeling sorry for him,
I seen the other side to being thin.
Roll us both down a mountain
And Im sure the fat man would win.


Its Friday! What can I say?

I've never heard that song before. I don't get it. Why do you have karma issues?

snugs said...

are you already drinking beer at lunch time? You silly man. Where is the food? Show me the beef!

Chef E said...

Karma...yes one reason I came to St Louis for two weeks, to get off my lazy arse and walk...just got back from walking two miles to shop for my son's apartment...

Chef E said...

BTW I enjoyed the video, I need to pull out those old CD's and Jam while I clean and purge...myself

doggybloggy said...

micky-t: it is worth it isnt it?

stacey: you too but no tequila for me!

TBD: Oh its a long short story...I'll get over it soon...

snugs: nope! I gotta wait till the sun goes down - I got nothing on the menu and no one needing anything either...

chef e: purge away - how is St. Louis - is it warmer or colder over there?

snugs said...

well OJ's bad karma caught up with him, he might appreciate some cookies, or a meal fit for a wolf or something since you have free time :)

Anndi said...

I feel like I should give you a hug.

Bina said...

I have never heard this song before, but how funny! And Good Lord! That IS a big 'ole fat man!

Chef E said...

Colder than there...27 degrees and holding with some snow on the groud...was a brisk walk today for sure!

AP said...

Karma is the unfolding of some future equinox that you yourself fuel. It is clear and uncomplicated - a simple 9 mile jaunt every morning liberates the soul.

doggybloggy said...

snugs: my karma is fine its being trapped in an elevator with someone whos karma isnt so fine - wait that would be karma wouldnt it?

anndi: thanks and a big hug right back...

bina: its from the 70s

chef e: that is a 'brisk walk'

ap: that would do a lot with out a doubt...

Very cool blog...

Disturbing fat guy picture. I had an uncle who always married fat women - the skinny one admitted to 4 bills - and they disturbed me too. I think there were 3 or 4 such wives, but don't really care...I don't like to be disturbed. We all have issues!

As for the beer drinking, Ben Franklin said that beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. I hate the stuff anyway, but go enjoy one in honor of old Ben, would'ya?

doggybloggy said...

jds223: well thank you - and glad you came by!

marjie: Ben did say something like that didnt he...and as for 'admitting to 4 bills' what does that mean? We do all have issues thats for sure....

Micky-T said...

Me and the misses stopped back for the live version.....spectacular.

The Tull!

doggybloggy said...

buffalodick said...

A good day to roll down a hill, listening to Oldies..

Phfrankie Bondo said...

Nancy said...

Jethro Tull...how many amazing memories come back to me at the many times I was either at his concerts or listening to his music..Also used to do his music with a few bands....You take me back...Like you said..."Back in the day"....

Biscuit said...

I must say, your food looks delicious. If only I had the time.

You know, I think there are worse things than being fat. Like, say, being a hypocrite. Or lacking integrity. Being petty. Or a gossip. Perseverative. Predictable.

Oh, and you know what else I find sad? People who make fake profiles for the purpose of commenting rudely without accountability. Or, *LOL*, even more pathetic, to back themselves up when they comment on others' blogs, or post on their own.

See? Worse things than being fat.
