As Hopefully the Red Baron Won’t you Know What to this No Fenders Post, ack Ack Ack!
“Everybody Knows A Turkey and some Missletoe
Helps to Keep the Season Bright!”
Although neither Snoopy or thou Red Baran will be taking Off today, since Thars actually a very rare arrival of Snow here in Ye Utter’ Florence, which is a rarity due to our proximity to Sea level Ho Ho Ho!
Guess it was just Mwah who initially thought that since Veteran’s Day was on a Thursday this year, that the following day was “Black Friday,” Righto?
As I spent All Day Friday (Nov 12th) thinking this since Cool FM, Eugene’s 99.1FM Radio Station which some of us can pick up sporadically on Ye Oregon Coast via Florence’s Transmitter had begun Thar Holiday Programming early this year…
since they’d begun Thar Gory Eight weeks or is it Thee Number Nine? No. 9 Numeral Nein? Nonstop 24/7 Nothing but Ack Ack Ack Christmas Songs Barrage thru New Years.
Although I sort of enjoy this since it’s the only time ‘O year Yuhs can Hear such Classics as John Lennon’s so this is Christmas, The Beach Boys ‘lil Saint Nick “run run Reindeer” song. Or I want A Hippopotamus for Christmas. Alvin and The Chipmunks, chuck Berry’s run run Rudolf, You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch along with other various Classics like Bing Crosby and David Bowies Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy Duet et Al.
Not to mention I always hear some Vintage Christmas song I haven’t heard before. As last year I spent several weeks trying to figure out that it was The Carpenters singing Sleigh ride from their 1978 Album Christmas Portrait, but I digress.
Since I did get a Smile on my face when hearing for the very first time ever this November The Ballad of Snoopy’s Yuletide Dogfight!
As the song is by The Royal Guardsmen, a Florida Rock Band who later became known as the “Snoopy Band!” As their Snoopy Christmas song was recorded in 1966. With the song reaching No. 2 on the billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold in early ’67.
Funniest bit ‘O trivia is the Band recorded the song without Charles Schulz’s initial permission. So their record label Up North Eh! In Ye Great White North of Oh Kanaduh’ refused to release it due to potential legal issues Stateside with Messer Schulz.
So the Band put out a very blatant re-issue called Squeaky ant The Black Knight Up North Eh! Which also became popular in Ye Frozen Tundra before Schulz gave his permission for the song.
Hence, naturally I got a Wild Hair to “See” if I could find said Squeaky and The Black Knight Great White North “Import” version, for which I was super Surprised that it came up almost immediately, Ja Volt!
As They All lived to Fight Another Gory Day, Ho Ho Ho!
Since after All, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of The Year,” SPEW! Now, does anybody know where I can buy a Turkey? Or how Much this Damn Bird Weighs? Ho Ho Ho…
Happy boxing Day, Yall!
