I think you people are looking a little too far into the Bob song. It's just a song made of palindromes.





...Right?

Haha, ok, I'll start looking into that song, then.



That 27 probably belongs in the 27 list...

That's often what I thought about They Might be Giants interpretations, but they DO make sense.....atleast.... some of them.

These were great! Very funny stuff.

Your explanations for 'do geese see God' and 'warsaw was raw' are my favorites, as well as 'ah, satan sees Natasha', since I used to love Rocky and Bullwinkle. :biggrin:

Well, yeah. That's why I included the (genuine) quotes from Al (from the Archive and from the KABC interview) to try to make it clear that I was just having a little off-the-deep-end fannish fun. And it was a great opportunity to use lots of really big words, too. 8)

"Never odd or even" must refer to the number 27. 27 is composed of a 2, an even number, and 7, an odd number. Al is never only odd nor only even, but is represented by a number that combines both.


Of course! A truly brilliant insight! Thank you! :D
