    Oh man you just open the doors for lots of other nasty and funny ideas as far as I'm concerned... :lol:

    Very funny indeed and very good impersonation :lol:

    OMG, I am very late to this. Between this, and Denis' busting it out with Hono (can't remember where, but it was hilarious), I am officially on the floor.

    Sandra Jayat has a reputation that I don't know, but she is supposed to be a Gypsy poet.
    She did a version of Minor Swing with Lyrics.
    Instead of singing "Minor Swing, Minor Swing" (that kinda makes me think of "Spiderman, Spiderman"), she says "C'est le Jour de Noel" = "It's Christmas day".

    But I still don't think she tops Denis version.

    Wow! Awesome, Dennis!

    Back in the day I used to go hear a great guitar player in Toronto named David Wilcox, former lead guitarist with Ian and Sylvia. At a coffeehouse on Eglinton Ave called "Fiddler's Green" he once sang a version of "Nuages" which, as I recall went, something like this:

    "I love to sit on my garage, and watch the nuages go by.
    A virtual colour-filled collage, those nuages in the sky.
    And then I put on a corsage... and then I take out my garbage..."

    Sorry, GJ vocals fans, that's all I can remember...

    Will

    (Trust me, after a few doobies, it was HILARIOUS! Well, OK, maybe you had to be there...)
    Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."

    Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."

    Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
