The Real World ... Blogger Style: Brickbats

Thursday, September 22, 2005


Yesterday I unexpectedly received a 2 CD set of Boz's Brickbats: A Compilation of Humorous, Satirical, and Novelty Songs, Vols. I&II in the mail:

Shaving Cream - Be Nice and Clean...

The gift was unexpected because it was given out as a prize for the winner of Boz's recent "Boz's Choice" contest. I actually achieved the lowest score on that quiz, correctly answering 4 out of 15 questions. My more observant half, Sandralein, won the contest however and secretly arranged to have the CDs sent to me instead of all the way to Germany.

So thank you, Liebling; and thank you, Boz!!

I'm still absorbing the impact of the 55 track collection, but I think the immortal "Shaving Cream" is my favorite. That and Screamin' Jay Hawkin's outstanding "Constipation Blues".
