Is Prince Freaking Out Right Now?

20 Mar

If you believe that life doesn’t end after this round, then Prince and Chuck Berry could be chatting right now, if Prince hasn’t stopped doing this yet because he’s so excited that Chuck showed up…

From middle-class beginnings to doing reformatory time for armed robbery to working janitor and auto assembly plant jobs to siring rock ‘n’ roll, Chuck Berry did a lot. Stellar run, Chuck. We bow and smile.

My gut was still sore from missing National Grammar Day, then—OOF!—Chuck Berry’s dead. But since I have this new commitment, I’ll also weave this latest gut punch into something blogtastic…

So, if you need any more reasons to love the hell outta Chuck Berry, here are five of them…

1. If you tried to give rock ‘n’ roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry. — John Lennon

2. I never liked blues and I really didn’t like jazz. I liked Chuck Berry. — Johnny Ramone

3. Of all the early breakthrough rock and roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. — Cub Koda

4. There’s only one true king of rock ‘n’ roll. His name is Chuck Berry. — Stevie Wonder

5. [My mama] said, ‘You and Elvis are good, son—but you’re no Chuck Berry. Chuck Berry is rock ‘n’ roll from his head to his toes’. — Jerry Lee Lewis

Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, the current president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is rumored to be a potential option for new pope. 

I’m keeping my fingers tightly crossed that Turkson gets to wear the Mitre. He’d be the Obama of Catholicism. It’s just what the Church needs, I say.

Shake things up, cardinals! Vote Turkson!

And the gayest city in America is…

Yes, I’m serious. 

No, I’m not joking.

News Snippet of the Day

6 Jan

Jackson said she gave the robber all of the money in the register, but he wanted more.

“He was just saying ‘the change too,’ cause he had kids,” she said.

After that, the robber had an even more unusual request — hair extensions.

According to a police reporter, Jackson told officers the man said, “My b**** needs some hair extensions, which are the best ones?”

“I was like, really?” said Jackson. “I wanted to laugh, but something was going on and I was in shock. So I was like why are you asking me about the most expensive hair extensions? So I just grabbed any kind for him.”

Satisfied with the money — and the hair — the robber left.
