Show me "Angry Men!"
Not "Ocean's" or "Days of Christmas" song.
Unless it's John Denver & The Muppets.
A baker's dozen, of course.
Nope. Only the Mackenzie brothers redeem that horrible song. And Eddie Izzard and his "Five golden rings" bit.

Smackdown: apostles vs. tribes of IsraelSmackdown: Bradshaw vs. BradyBut I'm with Randy on the Monkeys. WE DID IT.
I'm taking Brady, purely because I saw "Failure to Launch" and have been exposed to Bradshaw's naked ass. That which has been seen blahblah...
Cylons. And "Twelfth Night."
I am a big fan of Cheaper by the Dozen, the original book. Some stuff brushed over, you find out later, and the sequels weren't that great. The Steve Martin movies were almost completely unrelated to the book, so one needn't even discuss them.
Walter + Skyler + Walt Jr. + Holly + Jesse + Hank + Gus + Mike + Saul + Hector + Badger + Skinny Pete = 12. Sorry, Marie, you don't make the cut.
And it's golden, goddamnit, not gold. They're bands on birds necks, not gold rings.
There's 13 apostles.
Like the daughter who just disappears halfway through (Mary?)
I like my dozen "Dirty". "Doesn't give me anything. But along with these other results, it gives *you* just about the most twisted, anti-social bunch of psychopathic deformities I have ever run into! And the worst, the most dangerous of the bunch, is Maggott. You've got one religious maniac, one malignant dwarf, two near-idiots... and the rest I don't even wanna think about!""Well, I can't think of a better way to fight a war."
It's got to be a dozen doughnuts, right?
Wait, really? Who knew. (Not me, obviously).
Officially recognized districts of Panem?
And apparently, the cousins don't, either.
I've always been a fan of the measurement of a Great Gross (being a dozen dozen dozen or 1,728).
I was quoting Donald Sutherland saying "Never heard of it" for years before I saw the Dirty Dozen, because my dad always said it that way.
Yep, on pheasants. Also, it's four Colly Birds (blackbirds).
Not "calling birds"? Am I the only one who's been singing/imagining it wrong all these years?
I just discovered that it wasn't "Calling Birds" -- but Collie Birds -- about a week ago.
Only in the sense that Van Halen was a sextet
Some substantial controversy at last night's Big Quiz Thing when the question was fill in the blank with the appropriate gift: 12 _______ers _______ing. We got it, but a couple of teams insisted alternate answers should be accepted.
Right. http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/cheaper-by-eleven/Content?oid=914196 is a great article about the whole thing.
Me! I am my favorite dozen dozen. And no, that is not weird. ;)
Oh yes, I rememebr that article when it was published.
I'm with JF: it's not Christmas until Miss Piggy starts howling: "Five! GOOOOOOOOOLD! Rings!!!!!!"
Ideal number of tracks in an album?
What were the alternate answers?
I don't think any were accepted ultimately, once he clarified that it was the "traditional" answer.
Van Halen is arguably a septet, by that definition--Eddie, Alex, Wolfgang, Michael Anthony, Diamond Dave, Sammy Hagar, and Gary Cherone--but I think everyone agrees that Cherone doesn't count.
Uhhh... 2201 is 188 years away, not 88.
Oops. Should have said 2101.
I was PETRIFIED of that clip when I was a kid. The song still makes me twitch a little.
Interesting. Do you know what it was that made you scared of it?
I have no idea. It really doesn't make any sense. It might have been the emphasized syncopation - the FOUR-five and NINE-ten still sound to me like someone in the middle of a fight.
Cool thought about the syncopation. For me, because it had pinball, it was the awesomest.
Didn't know you were a pinball fan. We'll have to play sometime. I suck, but I love it. The Cyclone machine in the basement of my college's Student Union got too much of both my money and time.
HUGE pinball fan, even though I too am terrible at it.
Crappy pinball tourney next time you're in Chicago. Check.
What does it say about us that we have these conversations in public?
