’21 A To Z Challenge – G

One day, when my Dad was in the retirement home, the nurses took him down to the common room, and put him in a big chair, so that he could watch television.  Just as they were walking out, he started to lean over to his left side.  One of them rushed back in, propped him up, and put a large pillow on his left side.

Just as she was leaving again, he started listing over to his right side.  She rushed back, straightened him up, and jammed a cushion on his right side.  When I arrived to visit him, I asked how he liked the place.  “Not very!” he said.  “They won’t even let me fart.”

I just had baked beans for supper, so I decided for the G Challenge, I would do a piece about The Rolling Stones song Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  I see some of you are looking more confused than usual.  Don’t you remember??!  It’s a


I hope you had a chance to watch the 1987 movie of the same name, starring Whoopi Goldberg.  It makes about as much sense as any of the Pink Panther films, but is just as zany and funny.

I just watched a YouTube video of an old Dave Allen comedy sketch.  He said that he didn’t really like having to fly anywhere.  Medical studies indicate that the average person farts about 14 times in 8 hours.  Put 500 people in an enclosed jumbo jet, for an eight hour flight, and you get a total of 7000 farts by the time you arrive.

And people wonder why I drove all the way to Key West.  At least I can crack a window open a bit…. when the wife starts leaning to one side or another.

Posts that are a little more intellectual will be published later this month.  😉

    There’s a series of memes. A man and woman are in bed with backs toward each other. The woman’s thought begins with, “He’s probably thinking about other women.” The man is thinking other thoughts, some deep and others not so much. Example:

    Her: He’s probably thinking about other women.
    Him: Where does a fart go if you don’t let it out?


  3. The story of how the song Jumpin’ Jack Flash was written is interesting. Mick and Keith woke up at Keith’s country estate as someone walked by their window. Mick inquired on what the noise was and Keith replied it was the gardener Jack, whom he called Jumpin’ Jack, for no apparent reason. The rest is music history, and luckily I saw them in concert in 1981.
