Yeah so the Jaws story was a fake but aside from bringing back memories of one of my favorite movies it also reminded me of a little ditty I used to hear occasionally in my youth called “Mr. Jaws”. What’s that you say? You’ve never heard Mr. Jaws? Well my friend it’s your lucky day! Thanks to the wonders of YouTube I found a copy of this song. Now that I think about it, I think I used to have the 45 of this song. For you young ‘uns out there a 45 was a small record, records were what we used to listen to back in the days before CD’s and MP3’s. 😉 And now that you’ve had your history lesson for today I give you the classic that is Mr. Jaws!
While we’re on the subject of Jaws though, did you know that the mechanical shark they used in the first movie was named Bruce? No? Well with that in mind I bring you one of the greatest ELO songs ever made.
And for bonus points it also ties into “The Dark Knight”! Don’t bring me down! (Bruce!) Bruce Wayne! Get it! Ok so that was lame. I’m sorry. To make up for it I bring you another parody from my childhood and surprisingly it’s not Weird Al!
At the end of the song when he’s referring to buying prizes, that’s because back in the day you didn’t get to keep the money you won on Wheel of Fortune, you had to “buy” crappy over priced stuff from the studio. There are old clips of it on YouTube if your interested. I’d post one here but…well I’m lazy and if I do all the work for you how will you ever learn to do things on your own?
You know I just realized how freaking random this post is, I didn’t intend for it to be so all over the place but it’s been a helluva time for me lately so you take what you can get I suppose. If you want to leave I’ll understand, I just want to leave you with this before you go.
P.S. I truly am sorry, this was a bad post, I knew it was a bad post and I subjected you to it anyway. So again, I’m sorry, I’ll be better next time. I promise. I was gonna put some Robot Chicken stuff up for you to make up for how bad this blog is but evidently Adult Swim and WordPress don’t get along that well and it wouldn’t let me post them. 😦
