Well, you should see, my little sis

Oddball Comics is already great, but I especially loved this entry, highlighting a comic book all about "The Twist." But instead of featuring Chubby Checker, they've made up a white guy named Skinny Becker. Uh-huh.

I always thought the lyrics were "we're gonna twisty, twisty, twisty, till we BURN the house down." But this entry reprints them as "TURN the house down."

Perhaps dance-induced arson was just too much for 1960. Imagine what they would make of "Golddigger."

Hee. I always thought it was "TEAR the house down." Learn something new every day, I guess! :D

I get a call every three weeks or so from a probation officer in Tucson that refuses to believe that the area code in Phoenix is different. I've told her at least 10 times to quit calling and she still thinks that I am the probate she is looking for.
