A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.
A typo in a Cathay Pacific inflight entertainment list. A song… never got to listen to it…. but I figured I’d write it myself
Am I Wasting My Tie On You Baby?
I haven’t written the tune yet, but it’s country song, so it’ll be E,D & A probably……
The date was for eight but you were late
You didn’t want fish, you didn’t want steak
You dressed right down but it’s a fancy place
Could you have been my big mistake?
Am I wasting my tie on you baby?
It cost ten bucks from a fancy store
I wanted a yes, you gave me a maybe
Now I aint so sure I should have asked for more
And so on, a singalong piece of jukebox misery. Suitable for sad cowboys and men who’ve been on the road for far too long.
A selection of my fanciest ties.

Thanks. I do also own a cowboy string tie, but no one lets me wear it 😉

JD owns a few of those! I’d let him wear them but he doesn’t like having his collar buttoned. Which begs the question why does he have them then? (scratches head)

It’s a man thing Miss Kitty, don’t worry your purdy lil head about that. For me in Sydney, Australia too much ‘Maverick’ or ‘Gunsmoke’…. 😉

Why thank you ma’am 😉

Witty and quite brilliant! I agree that typos and odd translations can be incredibly funny
