Foot in the Mouth Moment #3,011

I was at a holiday party recently in which the music was terrible.  This wouldn't usually bother me that much (okay, it always bothers me), but I know the host had good music but was not allowed to play his own music - his wife's music was dominating.  Then he was told to play music in the kitchen, and I'm thinking, "Yes!  My boy's music will be in the kitchen, so I'll just hang out in there.  That's where the booze is anyway."  Nope.  She came in there later and switched that to her music too.

Just when I was settling in with some decent scotch and starting to get a warm buzz on a cold evening, and just when I'm buzzed up enough not to care too much about the music, I suddenly hear this weird whimsical techno crappola stuff kick in that just couldn't be ignored.  An instant record-scratcher track where everyone stops and says, "Huh???"

That's when I blurted out the following:
What in the hell is this shit?  It sounds like what the Teletubbies play at one of their cocaine parties.  

Then ladyfriend came over by my side to whisper to me that the song was something that a guest at the party made with his DJ'ing, and he was three feet away from me when I loudly delivered that comment.  Oops.

In my defense, if you heard the song and my description, you would have congratulated me on instantaneously deducing exactly what it sounded like.

How about you, seven readers?  Put a foot in your mouth lately?

That must have been awkward, maybe a little bit painful, but you did everyone a favor including the DJ. And it got us the picture of the teletubbies. I'm still laughing about it.

Making music suitable for a Teletubby cocaine party might have been taken as a compliment if you hadn't also called it shit. I don't have any sympathy for the composer. He should have got his music evaluated by people he didn't know before inflicting it on his friends.

Also in your defense... teletubbie party cocaine is the best cocaine around... pure as the driven snow.

David: I don't have any regrets about it. He needed to hear that. Why would we all want to listen to his crappy DJ stuff, right? La-La is a coke head.

Gorilla: Quite true. I would mean that as a compliment if I asked him to make music that sounded like the Teletubbies high on coke and that's what he came up with. You're a boss, Gorilla. Have I ever told you that?

Jimmy: Thanks so much for the picture! I have taken out the one I had and used yours. Makes it so much funnier! Don't they look like they're having a blast?

I blame the wife who was unnecessarily controlling. Not even allowing an escape in the kitchen? Is there even a man cave in this house?!

Danger: Afraid not. There was no escape. Only choice was to join in on a Teletubby Coke Jam.
