Merry Christmas everyone! I love Christmas (and Xmas!), but I do get sick of all of the holiday TV specials. So, while flipping the channels last night, I caught the end of VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s. During the show, someone opined that Sir Mix A Lot’s “Baby Got Back” had the best opening lyric ever: “I like big butts and I cannot lie”. While that is fantastic, it’s not really the best opener ever, is it? What about The Outfield’s “Josie’s on a vacation far away” or Vanilla Ice’s “Stop! Collaborate and listen.”? Personally, I’d choose the opening lyrics from “Nothing Compares 2 U”:
It’s been 7 hours and 15 days
since you took your love away
Oh that Prince…
I’m sure I’m missing some other fantastic opening lyrics, so please use the Christmas lull to help me think of them.

|Since I'm in a cynical mood, allow me to offer these 2 gems off my ipod...
Bloodhound Gang's Bad Touch: "You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals so let's do it like they do on the discovery channel"
Or Offspring's Why Don't You Get A Job:
"My friend's got a girlfriend
Man he hates that b***h, he tells me every day"
By the way, I hear Tennessee suspended a handful of players including their top receiver. That should help some.
On that posative note, allow me to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a great new year. It's been a great year at the water cooler known as Dummocrats.com and I'll be seeing y'all in 2008 and beyond unless you finally get sick of me and ban me.
Take care and God Bless.
