Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Tuesday, 16 September 2008

Ben (the once and hopefully future Eclectic Anonymous) thought that the last video I put up was a little on the serious side, so he sent me a link to this:

You know how Mr. Rogers was rumored to be a Green Beret with multiple kills to his name and it turned out not to be true?

Well, here we have a real-life army guy singing on a children's show.

It's the British Army (the Life Guards), of course...and naturally, since he is singing about triangles, several of the commenters on the video make "gay" comments...and since he served as a peacekeeper, there doesn't appear to be much likelyhood of any "multiple kill" stories...

but none of that is either here nor there.

 

Here is James Blunt singing "triangle".  Hopefully it will make you smile.

Just as an aside because you point to James Blunt's military record. They point out that he was sent to the Priština airport.

Funny thing that.

You see, Wesley Clark, I'm sure a favorite former presidential candiate and popular pundit wanted to start World War III when the Russians occupied the airport.

According to General Mike Jackson(http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/671495.stm), who was ordered by Clark to keep the Russians out the airport...'We were [looking at] a possibility....of confrontation with the Russian contingent which seemed to me probably not the right way to start off a relationship with Russians who were going to become part of my command.'

That's one of the reasons I've never really taken to him.

So what does NATO do? They send James Blunt. Hmmm. Maybe we should check to see if either of the current presidential candidates can sing.
