1. Michael - November 21, 2010

That was awesome. Best flash mob I have seen.

2. daveintexas - November 21, 2010

I feel gay now.

Make it stop.

3. Cathy - November 21, 2010

Thanks, Brew.

*sang along with the sopranos*

4. pajama momma - November 21, 2010

I got teary eyed.

Must be PMS.

5. pajama momma - November 21, 2010

oh and sang with the contraltos

6. Dave in Texas - November 22, 2010

>> Must be PMS.

*hides the kitchen knives

7. wamk - November 22, 2010

What would really be awesome is if they did the same thing with a Justin Bieber song.

8. Robert - November 22, 2010

Nefesh B’Nefesh has these flash mobs all the time:

9. daveintexas - November 22, 2010

A Justin Beiber song?

I would pay them a lot of money not to do that.

10. Cathy - November 22, 2010

I would pay them a lot of money not to do that.

But would you sing along? Tenor? Bass? Falsetto?

11. The Mayor - November 22, 2010

Simply amazing.

Thanks a ton for posting that.

12. Cathy - November 22, 2010

Btw, all biopsies came back negative.

A Major Thanksgiving!

13. lauraw - November 22, 2010

Awesome Cathy!

14. Cathy - November 22, 2010

Yay! Thanks, Lauraw.

15. daveintexas - November 22, 2010

GOOD NEWS!

That’s a good test to flunk!

16. pajama momma - November 22, 2010

Very good news Cathy.

I’m here to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. We’re leaving for Utah tomorrow.

It’s going to be minus 1 when we arrive on Wednesday. I think I will die.

Anyhoo, I lurves you all. Happy Thankgiving! Ya’ll are truly a blessing in my life.

17. Cathy - November 22, 2010

Happy driving to Utah and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, PJM.

18. BrewFan - November 22, 2010

Cathy, great news!

19. Cathy - November 22, 2010

Thanks Brew, for the thoughts, prayers, and joining in the celebration.

20. daveintexas - November 22, 2010

Safe travels PJ

21. Lipstick - November 22, 2010

Cathy, I’m glad to hear the good news.

22. Cathy - November 22, 2010

Thanks Lipstick, and Dave.

Good week to be thankful for good health.

23. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

You try that sort of thing at Turtle Creek mall in Hattiesburg, MS and you’ll get about 70-100 extra flash-mobbers just because of all the Southern Miss Master’s grads who are working there.

But am I bitter? Naw. Love my degree.

grumblegrumble

24. The Lovely Janis - November 22, 2010

1) WOW that was awesome– I would be sing soprano along with them.

2) Cathy great news — hugs, kisses, knuckles and hi-fives from Moses!!!

3) Safe travels to all this Thanksgiving week. We are just headed to the farm — 5 miles outside of town — got to watch out for the deer though!

4) Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

25. Michael - November 22, 2010

Love my degree.

Meet a stripper with a $70K degree in Art, acquired with gubmint dollars at a for-profit college funded by Goldman Sachs.

My secretary has an MBA from a similar institution.

26. Michael - November 22, 2010

We are just headed to the farm — 5 miles outside of town

That’s too easy, Janis. An hour before you leave, tell Russ you want the “aggressive TSA pat-down” just to make the trip worthwhile.

27. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

Hey now, don’t let market conditions get in the way of sound judgment. I have awesome degree, it’s just unless this “Internet” stops working it rather served its usefulness. But the l33t skeelz I obtained with the degree help immensely in the stuff I use to make money now. Which, in fact, helps people like the lady in that video keep her job. At least I don’t edit Wikipedia all day.

It’s like the circle of life. With strippers. Well-educated strippers. The circle of life that has stripper poles in there somewhere. That circle.

28. Michael - November 22, 2010

It’s like the circle of life.

D3ft, where you live the “circle of life” is supposed to be making moonshine and banging your cousin, not compooter skilz.

29. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

Yeah, and said stripper video is the nucleus for my latest rant on the TSA.

Well, ranting on the ranting on the TSA mess.

And you’re confusing southern Georgia for Kentucky. And wherever Dave is from in Texas.

30. Michael - November 22, 2010

I think the only states I have not been to in the continental U.S. are Mississippi, Alabama, and North Dakota.

I have no intention of doing anything about that.

31. Michael - November 22, 2010

And wherever Dave is from in Texas.

True. You could skip that part of Texas and not feel like you missed anything. It’s just — there, stuck between Austin and Dallas with some truck stops.

Now, you don’t want to miss West Texas. Midland and Lubbock, and all the run-down little towns in the Permian Basin, and the bleakest landscape you can imagine without even the severe beauty of a desert, are so jaw-dropping ugly and vacant that they are worth seeing. When you see the towns, you wonder why they are inhabited. You can only imagine that their grandparents ran out of gas on the way to California 80 years ago.

32. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

Oh, yeah, I’m farmiliayar with West Texas. I pick up all my mules down there near Ft. Bliss. Around the Burger King up on the hill.

33. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

And by mules I don’t mean the Mexicans I’m using to smuggle drugs up from Mexico

I mean something else

34. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

And I mean that I won’t be going over there anytime this week ESPECIALLY not Tuesday at 9 am

35. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

So don’t even bother looking for me then.

Because I won’t be there. In my large van.

36. d3ft punk - November 22, 2010

Say, wasn’t there some good, medically-happening news in there here thread that is really heart-warming and not at all admissible in court?

37. Michael - November 22, 2010

You should do more comedy at Wizbang. That site needs some levity.

38. TXMarko - November 22, 2010

Thank You so much for sharing this !!

Teary-eyed here as well. Handel’s Messiah is deeply rooted in my Maternal side of the Family.

Every Easter, it is performed in tiny Lindsborg, Kansas (Pop. 3224) by the Bethany Oratorio Society.

Easter 2011 will be, God willing, the 130th Consecutive concert.

39. TXMarko - November 22, 2010

…And Yes, Michael, Bethany is a Lutheran College.

http://www.bethanylb.edu/about.html

40. Michael - November 22, 2010

And Yes, Michael, Bethany is a Lutheran College.

Of course. Swedish Lutheran (my mother’s side of the family). Used to be the old Augustana Lutheran Synod.

A normal college would not do something that cool.

41. Michael - November 22, 2010

Handel’s Messiah is deeply rooted in my Maternal side of the Family.

One of my favorite memories of Cathy is watching her sing The Messiah as part of the Michigan Choral Union. This was before we were married. It’s an annual Christmas tradition in Ann Arbor. That year, the conductor was Leonard Bernstein, a real coup for this production. They do it with a full orchestra. It was awesome.

Also in that chorus was a guy I had known since I was a kid. I had attended Vacation Bible School with him, and our families were friends.

At the time of this concert, he was back from Vietnam, where he had been involved in some dirty work. He looked so angelic in his choir robe, with his long blond hair, but I remembered a late-night conversation when he talked about cutting off ears as trophies.

Just sayin’. Redemption is never impossible against the will of God.

42. Michael - November 22, 2010

In case you are wondering — ears make a good kill trophy because the tissue is mostly cartilage. They will dry up and harden without rotting, better than scalps.

Michaels Law:
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Lutherans approaches 1.

44. Lipstick - November 22, 2010

I was at a dinner party and some leftist called Vietnam “Nixon’s War”. I reminded him that Kennedy got us in there. He hemmed and hawed and then shushed up.

45. Michael - November 22, 2010

The “tipping point” is about 37 comments.

46. Michael - November 22, 2010

I actually got to see Malcolm Gladwell in person, by the way. He was pretty impressive. For a motivational speaker, he had way more science (as opposed to moving anecdotes) behind his presentation than you normally expect.

None of which really mattered to me. I don’t believe in the perfectibility or advancement of our species. I think we just get more technologically sophisticated about our savagery.

47. Retired Geezer - November 23, 2010

My Seventh Grade music teacher had us sing this at our Christmas Concert.

Along with other Secular and Faith Based carols.

Can’t do that now.

I’m a better person for having done it.

Just sayin’

48. Cathy - November 23, 2010

Wore a full burka for a Girl Scout International Day festival our area council had back when I was in junior high in the 60s. Even the eye opening was covered with white lace. No one else would put it on so I did.

I’m a better person for having that experience too, just sayin’

49. lauraw - November 23, 2010

I ate a bug once.

No change.

50. The Bug - November 23, 2010

^ … Maybe for YOU

Pretty much sucked for me.

51. nicedeb - November 23, 2010

Awesome. PJ, for some reason it made me teary eyed, too. And I’m post-ms. TMI?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

52. Michael - November 23, 2010

Same to you, Deb.

53. North Dakota - November 23, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Except Michael. You can choke on a turkey leg for all I care.

54. Cathy - November 23, 2010

Except Michael. You can choke on a turkey leg for all I care.

*studies up on Heimlich maneuver*

*practices on over-sized teddy bear*

*ready for Thursday*

55. Cathy - November 24, 2010

Another one.

It sent tingles through me.

*God will be praised.*
