They never learn!
I received a Facebook message from the wife of one of my friends. I don’t normally talk with this person but are Facebook friends. I figured she was giving me an update on her husband who has been sick.
It it didn’t take long to realize that she had been hacked.
”Got a good news?”
RED FLAG ALERT!!
There’s more of this conversation but let’s bring in Agent John Larry! I texted right away. Don’t wanna lose my $50,000!!
I have no idea who Tony is...
I had a gift card laying around without any money on it so I sent him pictures of that.
Tom Petty- Christmas all over again
I'll admit, I'm a huge Tom Petty fan so it's kind of a surprise that I had forgotten this song even existed. Doesn't take itself too seriously but is still upbeat and peppy.
Another one gone too soon . RIP.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra- Carol of the bells
The first time I heard this song it was from a YouTube video where people timed the lights to the music. Though that video was just one house. Check this one out. It's an entire street!
Have you ever heard of the Mandela-effect?
No? Well let me take you on a roller coaster acid trip where everything you thought you knew is completely wrong.
The Mandela-effect all started, simply enough when Nelson Mandela more or less began making the rounds on TV shows like Oprah and CNN. People watching the shows were dumbfounded. Why? Because according to them, Nelson Mandela had died in prison in the 1980’s. This wasn’t one or two people either. Entire communities sprang from this, all of whom legitimately had a memory of him dying. How could so many people be wrong? The Mandela-effect was born.
Queen- We are the Champions
Who doesn’t love Queen. Well do you remember the song “We Are The Champions”?
I used to sing that song at the top of my longs. The very end of the song was my favorite part… “We are the champions… of the wooooooorllllddd”
Yeah! Sorry. That never happened.
The song just ends. There is no “of the world” How the hell is this even possible. I’ve sung the song. This isn’t a misheard lyric like how when I thought Elton John was singing "Hold me closer Tony Danza" when it’s really Tiny Dancer, the name of the goddamn song. This here's an entire lyric completely missing that I had for years sung out loud.
The Monopoly Man
Let me tell you something. I think I have played exactly 1 game of Monopoly to completion. What I have done though is setup about half a million games of Monopoly then immediately got bored. It was just never my thing.
Now one thing I can tell you I have seen millions of times is the Monopoly man and his monocle.
You might have seen where this is headed. Uncle Pennybags (which is his real name) never had a monocle. Jesus Christ. Here is what he really looks like.
My god! I feel like my entire life has just been one long fever dream.
Shawn McGovern grew up on a farm 15 miles from Toledo OH. His life long dream is to one day visit that magical city and tell all of his friends about it.
