A pack of candy that tastes very artificial. One wonders if these were snuck into the country bypassing health and food safety regulations.
For some reason, I'm not sure why. It could be the cough syrup I'm taking or maybe just calling up Darryl (and him mentioning the chirpa chirpa song), but all day I've been haunted with old commercial tunes and songs from my childhood. The brainwashing of the 70s has, all of the sudden, risen from the deep dark layers of my psyche and penetrated my awakened consciousness. So in the goodness of sharing here are some of the diddys... at least the parts I remember.
The world looks mighty good to me,
Cause tootsie rolls are all I see
Whatever it is I think I see,
Becomes a tootsie roll to me.
That something special no matter where you are.
Anytime you want delicious chocolate,
There's no need to go looking very far.
Hershey is the great American chocolate bar
When you eat your smarties do you eat the red ones last...
do you suck them very slowly or crunch them really fast.
Eat the candy coated chocolate but tell me when I ask,
When you eat your smarties do you eat the red ones last.
Some times you feel like a nut.
Sometimes you don't.
Almond Joy's got nuts.
Hey Mister Owl. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop.
And here's one that only certain brain washed canadians will get...
Come lift your voice and lend your harmony and we can sing this song together,
From the east and west join the melody that's strong...
Oh Canada... you're just one song...
It's a diddy that came from a board game that we got from the government in around grade one (when I was a kid). The board game was about the size of a 12 inch record cover but thicker. I think it was blue with a green parrot on it. It contained the board game, a comic book of some sort, and a floppy plastic record (something that you may have seen in a MAD magazine), maybe some french english papers of some sort. I seem to remember the characters in the comicbook flying around Canada in a vehicle made out of a bathtub.
Okay I know this sounds pretty crazy but I am sick after all. Maybe it's just part of some vivid dream in my sickened state.
