Ouch, Padre! This caused major pain. I'll never forgive you.

Boo! Hiss!

What the hell is a toke? And if it's what I think it is, why was it on Lawrence Welk?

Padre Mickey said...

It's exactly what you think it is, Susan S., and it's on Lawrence Welk because they had no idea what it is.

Sweet Jesus, indeed!

Not sure if these tears are from laughter or benumbed sorrow. A modern spiritual! Even I, in my sheltered Baptist world, knew what that song was about. This is just amazing. And, sweet Mary, a godawful rendition. It is to weep. Except I was shaking with laughter.

I don't know what a toke is. Don't tell me! I'll Google. It was an awful performance and terrible material, the worst. I didn't catch teh dirty. I am an innocent.

It's not a dirty reference Mimi, it's just illegal even today. But the fact that Lawrence Welk was that unaware of the culture of the day is what makes it funny.

Maybe the the guy with the squeeze box knew, and that was why he was having a hard time getting the introduction out.

Justr as long as no one bogarts that toke we be okey-dokey. Growing up in the 60's I 'memeber watching in horror Easy Rider. Anyone remember Hoyt Axton? His signature song? (Don't confuse it with Lloyd Thaxton)

Now we know what's in that incense pot Padre likes to swing and make lots of smoke - no wonder they call it HIGH Church

I See You!
