Saturday 9: Ain't That a Kick in the Head?

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Ain't That a Kick in the Head?

Unfamiliar with this week's featured song? Hear it here.

1) In the song, Dean sings, "Ain't That a Kick in the Head?" to express how delighted he is to discover the girl loves him. When was the last time you were pleasantly surprised?
A year ago August; hopefully, lightning will strike again.

2) Martin was born Dino Paul Crochetti, and his family only spoke Italian at home. Do you speak any language other than English?
I only know “mangia” and a few other choice words that I can’t repeat here.

3) Before he became an entertainer, Martin fought under the name "Kid Crochett." Do you watch boxing? What about wrestling?
Nope and nope. The only sports that I watched lately was…

4) This song appeared in the original Ocean's 11 (1960). That film was remade in 2001, with basically the same plot -- a group of suave criminals knock over the casinos on the Vegas Strip. Why do you think so many movies feature crooks and con men as heroes?
Because many people think of the casinos as the crooks and there is also the Robin Hood effect.

5) Crazy Sam's college sweetheart took over his family's wholesale liquor business, married a woman named Helene and has two sons. How does she know this? She checked his Facebook page on the sly. Have you ever used the internet to look up an ex?
No, but I was friends on Facebook with an ex.

6) As she writes this week's meme, Sam is sipping from a Big Bang Theory cup that features  Sheldon's face and the word, "Bazinga!" Tell us about your favorite mug or water bottle.
It is a mug from my former employer, when they shut down the factory I grabbed a handful of cups.

7) Are you a good judge of character?
Nope, not that good a judge, I tend to believe what I am told.

8) Do you know how to turn a somersault?
No, I like to keep my head attached to my neck.

9) Which one do you use -- roll-on, stick or spray deodorant?
OK, let’s hear the gasps… I don’t use a deodorant. I don’t perspire and also wear clean clothes and take a shower daily and you won’t need any.

I thought of the Robin Hood effect, too.

"You won't need any." Not true. I shower and change my clothes daily and still need deodorant. On days when I go to the health club I shower again before returning to the office. I'm sure my coworkers are grateful.

I think it's nice that you rescued those cups.

I am Harriet said...

ha ha ha- You are right about that Robin Hood thing.

I once knew a guy who didn't use deodorant. He didn't brush his teeth either. He pretty much stunk, head-to-toe. LOL! No offense, just saying it doesn't work for everyone... ;)
