...and it's turing out all wrong
  • Description

    Alright, pay close attention because I’m only going to explain this once (well, I guess you could always reread it). Melanie Skofka, better known as simply Melanie, is a singer and song writer who came on the scene in the late 1960s. She wrote and performed a song called Look What They’ve Done To My Song, wherein you can find the lyrics “wish I could find good book to live in”. Okay, now pay close attention, here comes the tie in: Gumby is a claymation character (claymation: those were the 3D cartoons they had before everything was done with computers) who could walk into any book with his pony pal Pokey. There, now you know everything I know about it; now there’s no way you can say you don’t get it. So, why aren’t you laughing? Well, it could be you just don’t find it that funny; that’s always a possibility. But it could also be because I just explained the thing to death; there’s no timing, there’s no epiphany, there’s no whimsy. Admit it, you’d be better off not getting the joke.



    Wish I could find a good book- to live in...

    I know Gumby & fact I have a small bendable Gumby figure. Anyway, I didn't know about Melanie & her song--now I do, but you are right, I don't get it--the title, so I'm writing so you have to read a lot too just like you made me do. :-)

    I got it, but then I get most of your stuff, strange minds think alike! Very clever tie in!
