The Name Game

Honestly, I’ve got nothing today. My head is empty. I don’t have two thoughts to rub together. It was either this, or posting a re-run. What never fails to put a smile on my face though is The Name Game. I was deprived as a child and never learned The Name Game until I was a college student working in a day care center. When I’m elected President or Sexiest Man Alive, whichever comes first, I intend to make The Name Game our national anthem. When the flag is raised everyone will stand up and sing The Name Game with their own name. Pledge allegiance to me is what we will be saying. As President I will start each nationally televised State of The Union address by leading Congress and the congressional pages in singing The Name Game. That’s the kind of country I want to live in. Singing The Name Game together will show the world that we are a country of individuals united. Take that North Korea! Let’s see your citizens try to sing the name game in together! No one would dare bomb a country that can sing The Name Game in unison! I’m going to put my name in The Name Game here and I want everyone who reads this to do the same with their name in the comments.

Philly philly bo billy, banana fana fo filly, me my mo milly… Philly!

Ok, now it’s your turn. And don’t chicken out, because I’ve got Statcounter so I’ll know if you visted my blog and didn’t leave a comment.
