The Beatles - Norwegian Wood

I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.
She showed me her room, isn't it good, norwegian wood?
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.
I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.
We talked until two and then she said, "It's time for bed".
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.
And when I awoke I was alone, this bird had flown.
So I lit a fire, isn't it good, norwegian wood.
I have no freaking idea how this song got stuck in my head. I haven't heard it in forever! It all started yesterday morning at work. I was sitting at my laptop goofing around (rather procrastinating) and I was singing this song. What's weird is the fact that I didn't even realize I was singing it.

My buddy, Ross, comes in my office and is like, "Hey man, is that Norwegian Wood?"

And I'm thinking to myself, wft! Why the hell am I singing this, and singing out loud at that? I respond, "Um, yeah. That would be the Beatles I'm singing."

He's like, "Wow! I love that song!"

"Of course," I answer, "how could you not love the Beatles. They're like the Beatles!"

I still don't know why that song is stuck in my head, but I can't seem to stop singing it! LOL!

On to another topic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... I just learned today that the UK once banned the word "Ninja" from their name, making them the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles instead. What the hell is up with that?! I thought the United States was the only "free" country allowed to ban stupid shit! Hehe!

Yes that's true! The censors were going through a big anti-ninja thing at the time: They'd leave all sorts of gore, slicings and sex in a film, but cut out a scene on the basis it contained Nun-Chucks!
