Mary, DID YOU KNOW....or did that whole angel appearing to you leave you sticken?

Oh manonmanomanoman, I'm trying very, very hard not to make fun of people.  It's so mean spirited and totally defeats any chance of me marketing the WWJD merchandise here on my blog.  Instead I'll just pose this question.


Do you find yourself biting your cheeks, wincing, rolling your eyes, furrowing your brow, pressing your lips tightly together or expressing concern topped off with guffaws of airy laughter when you hear Kenny Rogers and Wynonna singing Mary Did You Know?  

I know, I know most of you probably love that song.  It is very sweet.  But, all I can think of when I hear it is Mary looking at Kenny and Wynonna quizzically saying, "Hail NO!"

April - I think it would be wise for you to take that vacation from blogging that you were talking about. You seem to be unravelling like a HUGE MASSIVE GIGANTIC ENORMOUS COIN SLOT BUTT BALL OF TWINKLE TWINE. Now go lay your little heady down and go nigh nigh.

My my... you are a bit onery! First Harry Potter and now disparaging remarks about a religious song... Be sure to let us know if on your next bathroom blogging adventure you feel you've emitted anything that resembles anything we should alert the authorities about.

Did I just write that? Going... to repent.

I agree. The song is pathetic. And it makes me nauseated. But then, so does every country music song, so I am not sure how creditable I am on this one.

Hey-don't go bashing country...right, April?

Country Music sucks! The other day I had a friend of one of my boys in the car with me and my OTHER boys. This sweet child asked me - Um - can we turn the radio to some country music. And I said...Uh...no...We...can't.

At least when country singers use the name of our Lord it is 99% of the time used in the right way and motive. April, where are you, o fellow country music concert goer-pal of mine?

april said...

Yes, Yes, Yes,
I am all about the country. I do love country music. I love Kenny and Wynnona. I love Dolly and Johnny Cash and Keith and Tim and Faith. (don't let my sister throw you, she loves Dolly too) she used to sing one of her songs all the time.

But, that song Mary Did You Know was not the right song for Kenny and Wynnona no, no, no. Just waaaaaay to corny.

Has anyone clicked on the WWJD link? It's very clever.

I am another country music (and many other genres of music as well) fan, and I agree that this song is all wrong. I kinda sensed it before and have always quickly switched stations when it came on, but I listened to all of it after reading this post (well, as much as I could stand) and I have to say that I think I threw up a little in my mouth. At least it isn't the Christmas shoes song.

While I detest (nay, loath!)country music (its so freakin hokey, and all they sing about is getting drunk in a bar, 'cause somebody left them), I do rather like the song. I think it's quite pretty. To each his own!

Side Note: I wish someone would give Shania Twain a bone to naw on so she WON'T SING!!!

I like the song or rather the lyrics but I don't think their version was the best!!

I just clicked on the WWJD link! Yes, very clever. Very very clever.

And what is wrong with country music Rechelle?!?!?! I LOVE IT!!! Tim McGraw makes me swoon!

And, I like the song you dissed. Only I like it when Mark Lawry sings it (I believe he wrote it).

Are you still feeling onery today?
