See now, this is something i'd be more willing to believe... music89 wasn't all like LOOK! LOOK! LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!111...Just stating the facts. I also would assume that if they were making it up, they would have included more information, not just the polka title. But that's just my opinion :P

This once in a lifetime "Polkarama" medly includes Al's polka versions of...sorry...top secret.

That sounds more like an advertising ploy than a song title. But who knows.
I hadn't thought about that. I suppose that's a possibility. But then why would it be in quotes? If it's not the song title, why not just say "This once in a lifetime polka medly includes Al's polka versions of...sorry...top secret."?

And for anyone who doubts it, you don't have to believe it, but unless you can come up with some proof, don't go around calling people liars.

That's a great point. "Polkarama" could just be a description, not the name.

After all, the description of a polka medley, what it's called, or who's in it isn't important to the label...just that there is one.
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?

Think advertising. Let's say you're advertising a new burger place. You wouldn't say "This is a new burger place." You would probably say something like "It's rollicking good burgeriffic time"

Not saying that's the case, but it does sound a bit advertising to me. The fact that it's in quotations doesn't mean anything because we are reading a re-type of the article by someone else. Who's to say it was in quotations in the original. I'm not calling anyone a liar. But the way that sentence is worded. eh.

Well, I would tend to think that "Polkarama" is the title of the medley because of the fact that the "P" is capitalized and the word is in quotes. I would think that if it was meant to just be a description, the word would be lowercase and it wouldn't be in quotes. Even if it is just a description, it's great to hear that we will be getting a polka!

And for the record, I don't think a member's post count has anything to do with their credibility. Heck, even Bermuda had a low post count at one point. It makes no difference.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

Well at least we now have confirmation that we DO have a full polka medley, meaning the R. Kelly parody is a PARODY and we can stop all this "Trapped in the Polka" nonsense...

I don't have a comment on whether that's the title of the polka or not... it might be, it might not be.

Did you read what I just wrote Kev?

Is there anyway we can get a scan of the article to see how its really worded?

:S Now I did. You could very well be right. We do need to see how the sentence was worded in the original scan, especially since when music89 re-typed it, he spelled "medley" wrong.

And Bermuda still has a low post count compared to the more recognizable members here. WHiZZi too.
