- 30/08/2016Today's obscure contribution to the Name That Tune Hive. https://www.bebee.com/group/name-that-tune-music It's a simple game, From the lyrics, name the song and artist, no looking it up. Arbitrary points offered to winners.
I'm as old as the King of Sweden
I can drink in Connecticut
You're a year older than the Princess Anne
I don't mean it as an unkind cut
I'll never catch King Hailie Selassie
And you'll never catch Princess Grace
Comments09/09/2016 #4 Robert BacalOK, no takers. Here's the answer: Louden Wainwright III wrote "Rufus is a tit man" about his son, and now artist on his own, Rufus Wainwright.. Louden was married to one of the McGarrigle sisters, and his family includes Martha Wainright, yet another musician in the family.31/08/2016 #3 Robert BacalOK. Here's a hint. The same artist, performer, song writer wrote the following lyrics in another song: Marco Polo craved the spice and silk
And Rufus craves the mamma's milk
No moo-cow no billy-goat
Is gonna get the baby's vote.
Come on mamma,
Come on and open up your shirt
Yeah you've got the goods mamma
Give the little boy a squirt.
- 30/08/2016Seems one of my previous challenges got lost so here's a new one. The game: Identify the name of the song, and the artist without looking it up. Imaginary points are given to the winner.

Today's challenge lyrics: I hitched up my pony to a post on the right
Went in to a laundry to wash my clothes down
- OK. Here' a slightly different task. Name a song that either contains the work "monkey" in its title, or includes the word "monkey" in Its lyrics. Again, no fair looking it up.
A point will be awarded for each answer that offers up the song name, artist, and optionally, the lyric line.

PS. Obviously the picture isn't of a monkey, its of one of our "god dogs".
- Well, The Lion Sleeps Tonight got solved in about 5 minutes, so here's something just a little more obscure. The piano is a clue. Name the song name, AND the artist:
In America you'll get food to eat
Won't have to run through the jungle
And scuff up your feet

Comments14/08/2016 #4 Brian McKenzieNearly every shadow is either out right missing, or out of perspective with the rest of the shot: shading indicztes at least three different aspect sources. And I am still trying to figure out the fancy foot work for such a large guy that he seemingly floats on air, his athleticism in dance far shield by his large belly.....or maybe it is a she and is near term ~ Damn my CIS-Gender assumptions

Ontario, Canada - McGraw-Hill Author, trainer, puzzle man, pain in butt, speaker - McGraw-Hill ~~So, I give up on the other guy but I'm curious about the 'pain in the butt' part. Would that be the gluteus maximus, or the gluteus minimus🎀? lol

The team that plays in A Daytime Nukes is unlikely to make the playoffs this year, but then again they didn't really make it last year.
Comments08/08/2016 #5 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD@Robert Bacal (#2 Love your Profile Pic!) I'm just stuck at the word 'playoffs.' Hmm. What season IS it? I know....basketball - March Madness... Football Superbowl - the best day to go to Disneyland...Baseball - isn't that year-round, counting the Majors and the Minors? I think it's just my 'Brain Fog' that literally won't let me go there. But I wish I knew more about anagrams!

Comments11/08/2016 #34 Peter van Doorn#33 Well, I gained something here. @@Mamen Delgado. The art of honesty, of openness.The art of not living in the past. The art of letting go. The art of moving on. The art of believe. The art to have faith. No matter what. Easy words. But that was not the topic of mr. Bacal. The answer is fourteen with adorable smuacksss,11/08/2016 #33 Mamen Delgado#30 Hahahaha!!!! You are so adorable @Peter van Doorn!! "Smuacksss" means the sound of a kiss in English. Or at least that's what I pretended... ;) Sorry about my answer in Spanish, if you follow my buzzes you can see I write always in English and Spanish, but I answer in the same language I have been asked (otherwise it would be exhausted). So nice your story with Pilar, to say she was " the love of your life" is a lot to say... ;) Thanks for sharing!! Kiss kiss from Spain (to make it clear!)!! ;)11/08/2016 #30 Peter van Doorn#29 @Mamen Delgado I had to google the word Smuackssss. Not sure if it even was a word. It turned out to be a word in the spanish world. I am not able to learn your language in a day. I assume you are spanish. I used to know some people in Spain, a long time ago........ I do not know how you or me did it. I am thinking, wondering for many hours. A long time ago, in Spain I met the love of my life. Pilar. She was so much open in contradiction to what I was back then. We met on my first day in Benidorm. And we met again on her last day there.I was young an very stupid, she was young and so much wiser. I will not tell how I managed to mess up the rest of our story. Somehow, that strange expression of you triggered me.10/08/2016 #28 Peter van Doorn#20 @ Mamen Delgado. I will have to learn spanish, don't I? Thanks.. :) I will try. Het zal niet gemakkelijk zijn, net zomin als mjn taal makkelijk voor jou zal zijn. Iedere appel verbeeld tien. Iedere afzonderlijke banaan verbeeld 1.. Vier bananen minus twee cocusnoten= twee. Wat een enkele cocusnoot 1 laat zijn. Het antwoord laat op zich wachten..... I expect Google translate make a total mess of what I just said. And yet I seem to understand your spanish10/08/2016 #20 Mamen Delgado#17 @Hugo Chinchilla, cada coco tiene un valor de 1 y las bananas tienen valor de 1 cada una. En el último supuesto solo hay 1 coco, 1 manzana y ¡3 bananas! Fíjate en el dibujo. Yo sumo 10 por el valor de la manzana, 1 por el valor de 1 coco y 3 por el valor de 3 bananas = 14.

Comments06/07/2016 #73 Mamen Delgado#70 Exacto @Juani Sánchez Serrano-Sánchez!! Esa era la cuestión que yo quería plantear con el artículo, cuál es el impulso interno que nos lleva a participar en este tipo de planteamientos y que tantísimos comentarios y recomendaciones tienen en otras redes. Me gusta lo que dices, que es tentador y casi narcisista. Es como una necesidad de afianzarnos y de conseguir reconocimiento en el grupo, entiéndase por "grupo" en este caso la visibilidad que da la pantalla, como bien explicas. Interesante...06/07/2016 #68 Anonymous#66 es verdad que hacer lo que dice la ciencia. Después de leer tu mensaje, he intentado hacerlo de otra forma como dices primero dividír y multiplicar.

Comments24/06/2016 #2 Robert Bacal#1 @Deb Helfrich Just 101. I had to count them, and I promised myself I'd leave out the more obvious swearing type phrases which are truly infinite in number. It's actually pretty surprising how many of the 101 phrases most of use, not realizing we're stoking the anger of other people. I doubt there's a person anywhere that hasn't used at least 10 fire starting phrases included in the book. So, have you got your own favorites? You know, the ones that just drive you to semi-rage?
