The Hellhole

Thursday, August 12, 2010

There's some backstory to this, as it came up as conversation flowed and not totally out of left field, but I don't think it's particularly germane to the funny bit, so - on our commute home today, Anne was telling me about some people she knows who most emphatically did not enjoy their viewing of the movie Mamma Mia! - but wait, it's probably not for the reasons you think.

"That music! It was just awful! Pound pound pound, banging away, it gave us both a headache!"

Anne attempted to continue with her story but I interrupted.

"Wait a minute. ABBA was too much for them and pounded so hard they got headaches?!? Give me a moment to visualize [these two people] headbanging to Abba..." at which point I made the Secret Satanic Devil Rock Sign™ (see Fig. 1)...








Figure 1

...and started headbanging as I sang, "WAAAA-TER-LOO! WAAAA-TER-LOO!"

Not to be outdone, Anne made the Secret Satanic Devil Rock Sign™ and started headbanging as she sang, "Can you HEAR the DRUMS Fer-NAN-DOH!"

So if you saw two incredibly cute girls driving a Mercedes convertible along Turner Hill Road today and totally rocking out, now you know why: ABBA.

  • That is too funny! I'm old, and even I don't 'rock out' to ABBA!
