Fun-Filled Friday: Soupy Sales, Waterbed, Fruit Song, NFL Pigeon, Obama Song, And Pipe Dream
Posted Oct 23 2009 10:03pm
It’s “Fun-Filled Friday” time again and we’re gonna dive right into this week’s post with some sad news for comedy fans today. The lovable rubber-faced jokester Soupy Sales died at the age of 83 today. Best known for his “pie in the face” routine, here’s a great song and video collection of one of the all-time greats:
Something tells me Soupy would have LOVED this practical joke:
HA! That was too funny…poor ladies at the end couldn’t get out of the bed. I wonder how I would react if I saw something like THIS happen in my local grocery store:
“Let’s squish our fruits together!” Hee hee! Wicked. The look on the boy’s face at 1:13 says it all. And did you catch who the star player in the Oakland Raiders/Philadelphia Eagles NFL football game was last Sunday? A PIGEON!
That’s just amazing! Maybe the Raiders should sign that bird for special teams. Remember when I told you a few weeks back about that video with elementary school children extolling “Mmm mmm mmm, Barack Hussein Obama” in song? Well, there’s another video called “The Obama Song (Proud American)”:
Here are the lyrics to the song:
Obama is the President! First African-American in history 44th President of the United States The ground has shifted The world has changed!
CHORUS: Oooo I’m a proud American Oooo yes yes yes yes YES WE CAN!
I’m going to study really hard just like Barack Learning never ever stops Gonna set my goals HIGH and graduate You might be looking at the President of 2048!
We are a nation of a thousand colors, look at me Our strength is our diversity Walking hand in hand we sing Each a day a little closer to the dream of Dr. King
(Excerpt from MLK’s “I Have a Dream, 1963)
Together we walk Me and you So so much work Left to do.
It’s interesting to see all the fawning over President Obama by young people in America. As I stated previously, I don’t remember this kind of thing being done with the great President Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton or Bush 43. It just seems strange.
And finally, this was a pretty cool video of a CGI interpretation of a song known as “Pipe Dream”:
