...louie, louie

Today is International "Louie, Louie" day! Everyone uses this annual opportunity to celebrate the song that has been called the greatest party song of all time. It has been recorded more times than any other rock song in history and was very nearly declared the official state song of Washington. J.Edgar Hoover had this song analyzed, fearing that it had sinister content. He and many others missed, however, someone screaming the F word at :53. on the original recording. Work hard today, listen to the music, and try not to use the F word if you are laying down tracks for a song that will stand the test of time. This day in 1954 is considered to be the most boring day since 1900 according to the True Knowledge Answer Engine. Perhaps they weren't partying to "Louie, Louie!" Hold on a sec! Mother Goose is at my front door. BRB. I'm back. She gave me a post it and asked me to blog for her:

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,

Home again, home again, jiggety- jig;

To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;

Home again, home again, jiggety-jog;

To market, to market, to choose Home Decor,

We'll take these, we'll take that, of this we'll take four!

To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,

Home again, home again, market is done.
