How dare you. Bjorn and Frida only shop at Ikea.
Years ago, we knew a student from Sweden. She referred to Ikea as "the welfare system," meaning North Americans were funding Sweden's safety net.
Particle board safety net!
Ikea is just a front for the Allen wrench industry.
They would flatly deny that!
They're clearly not being straight with us.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

Not knowing the title of the song from Smokey and the Bandit, I'd always misheard the first line as, "He's bound to die..."
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

"We got a short way to go and a long time to get there. Wait. Scratch that. Reverse it." Smokey Wonka.

Aimee Mann would be one of my top 5 artists/groups.

Lost in Space in my favourite Aimee Mann album

High on Sunday 51 is one of my favourite songs on Lost in Space

Yesterday I found out that she is singing:
Do I fall through what I might have been?

and not
To rifle through what I might have been

I've listened to this song hundreds of times over 19 years.

<mind blown>
Putting a little stick about. Putting the frighteners on flash little twerps

Yep - I wonder how many other lyrics I'm certain I know but am wrong about. My proud record of catching them before 20 years is still intact for now.
