Just ’cause he brought this up:
It reminded me of the old Lone Ranger joke…
The Lone Ranger and Tonto are looking down the side of the mountain into the valley, which is teeming with ten thousand pissed off Apache. Lone Ranger looks over to Tonto and says “Looks like we’re in a tight spot old friend!”
To which Tonto looks at him and says “What’s this “we” shit Paleface?”
Heh. A pretty decent oldie-but-moldie that reminded me of this, from 1974…when I was all of, erm, uhhhhh…fourteen years old?!?
DAMN, but I’m old.
Yeppers, that little ditty was a solid AM radio hit in my youth, among many other off-the-wall and inexplicable novelty offerings. No need to thank me, Expat. Probably no reason to, either.
That actually happened to me. I was on the way to visit a customer with a Mexican co-worker and we stopped at a Mexican place in the hood for lunch. Afterwards we blundered around trying to get to where we were going.
I said “We’re gonna have a problem if we don’t make it outta here” to which my buddy said “What do you mean we? I blend in. You’re the guy with the problem”
Heh. Pretty funny, although I’m sure it didn’t seem like it at the time.
Wow! I never heard that one! Toooooooooooo funny bro! Thanks! (Memories jarred re: A.M. radio in the 69 Pontiac bombing down to the beach with the Parental Units)
I vaguely remember that song and I’m slightly younger than you. Peaked well outside the Top 40 but probably got decent airplay regionally in places like NYC.
