Closed Captioned For The Sane And Sober

This video of a spasmodic Joe Cocker singing "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends" at Woodstock has been modified so that the rest of us who didn't hit the same mushroom themed party before the big event can understand what the lyrics are all about.

It's easily the funniest thing I've watched on YouTube all year. Personal favorite moment happens around 2:25. Who knew that Joe Cocker envisioned Jesus as needing a fashion accessory like a turban to accent his long, flowing robes?

Okay, I have to pant a picture here....

I am trying to catch up on some reading and commenting and clicked on this post. But before I clicked, I realized I had to go to the bathroom pretty badly. But I just wanted to get one more blog in before I went.

Bad, BAD decision.

At first I thought the captioning was sort of ridiculous. And then Turbine showed up. Then probiotics.

Then someone's dad.

And I don't even have a kid here right now to blame this on.

Thanks for the laugh.

I just showed this to Kris Face, and after we laughed hysterically together, I asked him if he had a comment for you. Yes, he did!

Kris Face says...WOW!

You know, my father was a hippie and he always talked about that performance as being "epic, man, epic". Now I know why. My father must have had the same mushrooms when he was there!
That was so funny. I've always wondered why he flopped around like that. It always kind of freaked me out.
He reminds me of Forrest Gump dancing.

I believe he was trippin' about shopping he kept singing about getting wonder bread and leather.
Funny stuff!
