T. S. Elliot; Comprende, Dickstain?


“We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar”

T. S. Elliot might as well have been describing the members of the

Legion

    While I generally seek to elevate any discussion in which I participate, sometimes there’s nowhere to go but down. Although I briefly considered the Beatles’ “Nowhere Man” to be relevant here, it occurred to me that Weird Al’s ‘Dare to Be Stupid’ is even more apropos:

    Put down your chainsaw and listen to me
    It’s time for us to join in the fight
    It’s time to let your babies grow up to be cowboys
    It’s time to let the bedbugs bite

    You better put all your eggs in one basket
    You better count your chickens before they hatch
    You better sell some wine before its time
    You better find yourself an itch to scratch

    You better squeeze all the Charmin you can while Mr. Wimpole’s not around
    Stick your head in the microwave and get yourself a tan

    Talk with your mouth full
    Bite the hand that feeds you
    Bite off more than you chew
    What can you do
    Dare to be stupid

    Take some wooden nickles
    Look for Mr. Goodbar
    Get your mojo working now
    I’ll show you how
    You can dare to be stupid

    You can turn the other cheek
    You can just give up the ship
    You can eat a bunch of sushi and forget to leave a tip

    Dare to be stupid
    Come on and dare to be stupid
    It’s so easy to do
    Dare to be stupid
    We’re all waiting for you
    Let’s go

    It’s time to make a mountain out of a molehill
    So can I have a volunteer
    There’s no more time for crying over spilled milk
    Now it’s time for crying in your beer

    Settle down, raise a family, join the PTA
    Buy some sensible shoes and a Chevyrolet
    And party ’till you’re broke and they drive you away
    It’s OK, you can dare to be stupid

    It’s like spitting on a fish
    It’s like barking up a tree
    It’s like I said you gotta buy one if you wanna get one free

    Dare to be stupid (yes)
    Why don’t you dare to be stupid
    It’s so easy to do
    Dare to be stupid
    We’re all waiting for you
    Dare to be stupid

    Burn your candle at both ends
    Look a gift horse in the mouth
    Mashed potatoes can be your friends

    You can be a coffee achiever
    You can sit around the house and watch Leave It To Beaver
    The future’s up to you
    So what you gonna do

    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    What did I say
    Dare to be stupid
    Tell me, what did I say
    Dare to be stupid
    It’s alright
    Dare to be stupid
    We can be stupid all night
    Dare to be stupid
    Come on, join the crowd
    Dare to be stupid
    Shout it out loud
    Dare to be stupid
    I can’t hear you
    Dare to be stupid
    OK, I can hear you now
    Dare to be stupid
    Let’s go, Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
