User avatarOde to a Face on a Spoon

Yes! I’ve finally gotten around to uploading my unfinished symphony to follow on the wooden spoon theme from June. If you could call it a theme.

It was mentioned once, and I have mentioned it again, so the theme has been continued.

Anyway, due to phenomenal demand (please, everyone calm down) here is my lovely unfinished song:

I was a little bit lonely
So I drew a face on a spoon
A wood spoon, a happy face,
Whistling a happy tune
I drew some bushy eyebrows
With the littlest of fuss
I also added a scar on his cheek
To look a little dangerous

Face on a spoon (not on a stick)
Face on a spoon (not on a stick)
Face on a spoon (now that’s a trick)
Face on a spoon, and not on a stick

One day I’ll finish it and I will earn a million pounds exactly.

  • This is a serious achievement. It is both moving and thoroughly meaningless.

    Tell me, where do you get your ideas?

    I only deal in serious achievements. That’s why I have three certificates in drama from Newcastle College.

    My ideas come from a committee based in Idaho, possibly somewhere between Nampa and Boise. They throw some words into a bag, jumble them up and then throw them across an electric sandpit. The ideas are then printed off on a printer attached to a BBC Micro and faxed direct to my office.

  • Three certificates? That’s pretty serious. Dame Judi Dench doesn’t have three certificates, that’s for damn sure.

    Sometimes the committee like to listen to the ‘Brooklyn Sound’ when they are deliberating. That’s a little known fact for you there.

    I’m totes hardcore theatre arts through and through. I think I do an act much better than most people.

  • I’ve always thought it’s a good thing that you don’t act more, otherwise you’re so good that you’d just be putting most of Hollywood out of a job.

    It would cause an event that the world could not possibly hope to recover from. I am doing everyone a favour by not acting more.

    I once recited some Shakespeare to a friend on a whim and three species of African birds became extinct as a result.
