KillgoreTrout On December - 1 - 2012

This week’s music thread is about songs that make you smile, chuckle or laugh out loud. They say laughter is the best medicine, but after the election, we don’t really need the medicine. Now that business is back to usual in DC, a laugh or two certainly wouldn’t hurt.

So, pick the songs that make you smile, songs about anything that gives you a laugh. Songs about happiness. Songs with the words smile, or laugh or laughter in the title or lyrics, or just songs that make you feel good.

      …and on mine! Just to think -- I lived in Seattle for a decade, and I have never once heard that ditty. BTW: The “spermterpator” was absolutely hysterical!

    • At the Movies in the White House WH Screening Room

      With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

    • The 100 Foot Journey 220px-The_Hundred_Foot_Journey_(film)_poster

      The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
