Brought to you by the class of '92

John, as I said, enjoys teaching Jack weird things to say...the latest has been the lyrics to "We Are the Champions". So, I had to look up the video for the kids on You Tube. And then I had to look at a bunch of other videos too. I love Queen. Love. Queen. Anyway, Maria stuck around to make fun of the guy in the leotard and to ask every 20 seconds, "WHY is he wearing a leotard anyway?" Because. Because he's Freddie Mercury, that's why. Because, when you are that freakin' talented you can walk around in a tent and nobody cares. Because, it's the 70's, and spangled, too-tight clothing was all the rage and considered hot on anyone, even way too skinny British guys with overbites.

So, of course at some point we were watching Bohemian Rhapsody. And, of course, if you were a teenager anywhere during the time that *I* was a teenager....



...you know what happened. At the appropriate moment, I whipped out my scrunchie and proceeded headbanging, in the finest pit style. Maria pronounced me "not cool", repeatedly, but what does she know? She thinks Hannah Montana is the height of coolness after all. Anyone that can't recognize the coolness of such a maneuver is too young, too old, or just a nerd. Because everyone else knows that thrashing during Bohemian Rhapsody is very cool indeed. But not recommended. My neck still hurts.

This was very funny. Of course it's cool. I thrashed my head at many wedding receptions.

Who in our generation wouldn't thrash around to Bohemian Rhapsody? Thanks for bringing back some fun memories!

You so aren't supposed to head bang to Queen. ; ) You can shake and thrash yes. Head banging belongs to a later era. Now you're making me feel old. What's worse is when they play Queen on the OLDIES channel. Like, what is that supposed to mean exactly?
