The man who shouted 'tequila' in hit song dies

That's what the headline said in the news today.

Not his name. Not his bands name. Not the name of the song.

He is now and forever known as the man who shouted 'tequila' in a hit song.

I never shouted tequila.

Will my obit read:
'Man who never shouted tequila died.'

TEQUILA!!

Not now it won't.

How about the man who vomited Tequila?

Or would that open the flood gates for a mass run of confusion?

[which man who vomited Tequila's funeral are we going to again tonight?]

That would be Lamont's funeral.

He Shouted TEQUILA!

He doesn't actually shout it, he just says it - his voice sounds a little like Wolfman Jack...

At least HIS obit doesn't say "Never Went to Fenway Park."

There's still time for you, Bemis!

She'll end up yelling 'TEQUILA!' at Fenway Park.

Folks in the stands will feel kinda uncomfortable when she does so.

Bemisdown said...

Maybe I could make a sign instead.

It' ll be appropriate, if she yells "Tequila! Yankees Suck!"

Or alternately, "Yankees Suck Tequila!"

Yeah, well... Red Sox fans lick salt!

I know, it's lame, but I'm out of practice. We clinched so early this year that there just hasn't been any need to shout for a while.

Unless I miss my guess, "Tequila" is the only song to reach the top 10 with only one word in its lyrics. An absolutely useless piece of trivia, which is the way trivia ought to be.

Do they sell Tequila at Fenway Park? And how do I get there, by the way?

Bemisdown said...

Oh....

As an aside...We just hired a guy who's a teacher by day and a Fenway Park Groundskeeper by night.

Anyone...Motheragawd...sniff the odor of free tickets here?

Folks at MY workplace love me, by the way. Even the new ones.

On further review...

Our neighbor to the north is correct. "RNRP2" went to # 7 on the U.S. charts, and #2 on the U.K. charts.

"Tequila," however, was the only song with just one word in the lyric to hit #1. That's my (amended) story and I'm stickin' to it.

Anunomess said...

Lamont is correct.

...And really, 'Hey!' is barely a word. Nonetheless, R&RP2 is available in ringtones and still played at most sports arenas, even if Gary Glitter was busted with child pornography. (The song must go on.)

Huh?

TEQUILA! reminds me of my 21st birthday. Had an entire tequila-fueled conversation in Spanish (a language I do not speak) with someone who was responding in French (a language I do not understand). I think vomiting was involved.

Uh, B-down, this guy with the cool second job at Fenway Park - married? You might want to marry him. Just in case.

If I'm dead, do I still have to pay the Ex child support?
