Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Delancey Street?

Seen at Althouse as an argument against makeup.  However, that would be the logical error of generalizing from one instance.

The only reason I’m posting this for our amusement is that it also reminded me of another redhead and Delancey St.:

Lucy comes in at about 1:15.  Lucy, I love you.  I saw this on television when I was seven years old and never forgot it.

I feel great, just because I can.

  1. Those were the good shows on TV.

  2. Holy moley NV…

    I just luv it when a guye is confident enough in his manhood to allow others to appreciate and understand his feminine side…
    My thought is… she’s, ethnic Irish and Ricki and Lucy, look just like I remember them…

    JD…pay attention, here; just because Roger has high cheek bones, fine features, wavy hair and a handsome flair…
    He certainly, doesn’t deserve yer, more than unprecedented, snide remark on [He’s baaaack]…

    That song, by the Beatles…”Where have all the flowers gone…?” must have been played and sung a million times in the bars of Vietnam…
    Despite what some “arse hole, gung ho’s” might tell yah, it was one of the Troop’s favorites…!

  3. Gramps, I don’t know what loving redheads has to do with the feminine side or whatnot, but the threads in my post, while seemingly disconnected, artfully come together to make a beautiful tapestry, while you comment, in my opinion, does not.

    Also, tweren’t the Beatles that recorded the song, you’re probably thinking of the Kingston Trio version

  4. Ya gotta ‘scuse Gramps…in his Wodka befuddled brain, all folk and rock groups sound like the Beatles.

  7. Gramps,

    From Wikipedia: in 1936, at the age of 17, Pete Seeger joined the Young Communist League (YCL), then at the height of its popularity and influence. In 1942 he became a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) itself.

    And since I used the line as a post title I am a secret Commie Symp! It all fits together!

  8. So Pete Seeger, was a member of the CPUSA at the age of 23…?

    If memory serves that was just about, Rand Paul’s age when he forced some young women to kneel and salute the Aqua Buddha
    Did Rand ever come clean on that ridicules charge of sexual harassment, some twenty years ago…?

    We know how his campaign is treating women today…consider one head stomped and groped Ms Valle…just last week…!

  9. If Rand Paul is guilty for how “his campaign” treats women, then I’m guilty of mistreating Gramps’ liver daily.

  10. Hey JD…I’m curious; just what the hell is a damn, Aqua Buddha…?

    Could it be a fat, wet, erection as compared to another, Baylor, undergrads, skinny, dry, one

    Any ideas, in yer erstwhile author’s fertile, imaginative, nether parts…?

  11. Aqua Buddha means one of two things. It’s either a water pipe,( bong), which is used to smoke reefer or hash-hish in, or it means kneeling in front of the “porcelain God” while you puke yer guts out because you imbibed in too much alcohol. I go with the first one.

    Mike

  12. Thanks fer that Mike…!
    I was in total ignorance of the Southern Baptist rituals at Baylor…
    “Smokin’ the bong” or “pukin yer guts”…

    I thought us… sorry, anti-war activists, at the UW Madison were the exceptional, examples, of complete, sorry, arseholes…

    Hey Mike…
    I know where yer comin’… from…
    Thanks fer the …
    HOOAAH…!

  13. Hey Mike…
    Are you a Baylor alum…?

  14. Baylor???…never heard of it. Now, Western Carolina U, I’ve heard of…top five in the nation of partying colleges back in the day when they kept track of such things.😉

  15. Mon apologies…tmg…!
    I’m one sorry, olde, dumbe, arsehole…

    If we ever have the chance, to “shake hand’s…”
    It’ll be my pleasure…
    Thank you sir…!
