::Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road::

Onesome: "Goodbye,–Norma Jean"? Hmmm…. Best song ever? …or did he top himself when he adapted it for Princess Diana?

Neither. I thought the rewrite — I mean, just the very idea of rewriting an existing song for a new subject — to be irredeemably schmaltzy. Far from being the Best Song Ever, it isn’t even Elton John’s Best Song Ever.

Twosome: Yellow–lights: run ’em or slam on the brakes? …or do you plan your speed so you never hit them yellow? …or maybe, "What yellow light, Officer?" <g>!

Depends on the context in which I encounter it, but generally I try to stop.

Threesome: Brick Road–s and flying monkeys? Okay, did those things just creep you out? …or were you one of those people who really, really, really wanted one for a pet? Just askin’…

A pet? You’re kidding. You just know those things crapped all over the witch’s castle. There’s a reason she was in an awful mood all the time.
