Talking back to 80s music, 33

So.  Buy yourself some chaps and a hat and get to it, then.  Just keep your spurs off my couch.

“I Wanna Be A Cowboy,” Boys Don’t Cry

…you’re welcome, Ash

  1. T-t-t-t-t-trigger

  2. The horror, the horror.

    Made much much worse by the kid up the street who went into urban cowboy mode contemporaneously. Couldn’t drive to the friggin’ store without spotting him and subsequently hearing that damned song in my head.

  3. “Just me and the pygmy pony…” Oh wait, you said 80’s.

  4. Ted, oh Ted, fighting off danger.

    Presumeably he was dry, sober and nowhere near Chappaquiddick.

    [Ted gets so dirty.]

  5. You rock, Jeff. Now my favorite example of 1980’s wackiness is forever enshrined.

  6. Answer, please?

    If I only knew where I was during the 80s…

  7. Perhaps—I say perhaps—the answer is hidden in the white space under the clue. 

    You might—I say you might—try mousing over it…

  8. My Google 8 ball says: “All signs point to Garth.” Right??

  9. Too bad none of your little smilies have a cowboy hat on—wait—better—Wayfarers!

    cool smile

  10. Was it Garth Brooks?  Anyone?  Tormented mind wants to know…

  11. Hi ScottP!

    If you go here you can play this clip.

    You will then be able to see why Jeff tells him to well, get to it already.

  12. Thanks, SarahW!  That one drove me crazier than most for some reason… I do remember it now, spent too much time traveling during the 80s, I guess.

    Have a great weekend, I’d like to think I’ll sleep better now but of course that stupid song is looping in my head…

    And Jeff.  Mousing over the white area.  That was cold, man.  Cold

  13. Oops. 

    I guess I should have said, “highlight the white space like you would if you were highlighting or selecting text.”

    Then you’ll see.

  14. Wow.  How do you do that?  Lemon juice and a tooth pick, I’ll wager…

    Have a great weekend.
