We are taking a break from reading the first-rate Buffer Zone Contest entries that are starting to come in by catching some of the Sochi Winter Olympics.
I have always found Olympic spirit, dedication and talent of the athletes awe-inspiring, so this performance of “Get Lucky” by the Russian Police choir at the opening ceremony seems kind of out of place.
Out of place and hilarious. First, the song choice is questionable at best. Second, could the choir members, other than a few singers, look more uncomfortable?
Watch the NBC video in all of it’s fantasticalness here:
Do these Ringling Clowns look like Lord Grantham’s family when compared to your extended family? Or at least certain members of your clan?
I thought so.
You know who these people are. You grew up with them. Or perhaps they came later, as in-laws or evil nieces and nephews. Then one day it occurred to you that most of them are idiots, addicts, or just plain deranged. The Buffer Zone is for that frightening epiphany. And every day thereafter.
Hopefully, you have enjoyed our 12-day dysfunctional celebration song. Clear your throat, do some vocal warm-up scales and join with me now:
(Loudly) On the twelfth day of Christmas hope Santa brought to me dysfunction-free kin, better selective hearing, no brawls or food fights, a new alias, no surprise house guests, an unlisted number, a superb retort, (milk this line) one mooorre stiff drrrinnnkkkk……., (big breath) no bail-requests, comfort food, drama-free days, (bring it home) AND A BUFFER ZONE DMZ!
Hope Santa brought to me a new alias, no surprise house guests, an unlisted number, a superb retort, one moorre stiff drrinnkkk……, no bail requests, comfort food, drama-free days, and a Buffer Zone DMZ.
PS. Santa, it would be fine if the new alias was Jennifer Garner.
