This evening, while checking out new posts on Facebook, I came across this gem.
Well, Lori and I thought it was hysterical, since we both fell right into the trap. Megan, who is 10, didn’t get it.
So, after Lori and I did a poorly-performed duet of the song verses in question, I went to YouTube and found a video of Queen performing Bohemian Rhapsody and had Megan listen to it. She gave me lots of weird "What the heck is THIS?" looks while the song was playing, but she then understood (as much as a 10-year-old can understand her parents’ ancient memories).
The kicker to this little story comes from one of the commenters on the YouTube video. An hour later and I’m still chuckling over it.
I hate it when people compare Freddie Mercury to God. He is good but for fuck’s sake, he is not Freddie Mercury.
Thanks, speslqueen, for that wonderful bit of cleverness!
