Cheers!

I was driving with my lovely girlfriend, LSD, and the "Cheers" theme came on my iPod. We were both very much caught off guard by the lyric at around 1:20 where he says "and your husband wants to be a girl."

It was a wise move to not use that verse for the show because it could really throw off the viewers, seeing as transvestites and/or transsexuals didn't play a significant role in the story lines of "Cheers;" at least not in any of the episodes I have ever seen.

Also, I think it's funny to sing it like this: "You wanna' go where everyone knows you're gay." That would be a killer sing-a-long at a gay bar, don't you think? "And they're always glad you came" is a lyric that kind of works for that version too . . .

Making up new lyrics for songs is one of my favorite things to do.

Radio: Screwed up, right? I guess the point of the song is that screwed up things happen in your life, and it's good to go to the bar and get loaded at times like that. Right? JEBUS! A song by Yob just came on the music player and it's terrible. I have to take it off the list for sure.

Sybil: Happy Halloween to you too! It's a good day out of the year for a boy to want to be a girl.
