Biscuits and Turkey Tea

Marcus:  *singing softly* folks eatin in their private dining cars...   prolly chompin biscuits and drinkin turkey tea...

Percy:  Hey, I recognize that tune.  Isn't that from "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash?

Marcus:  Sort of.  I'm just sitting here in my private dining car waiting for Jan to allow me my one hour in the exercise yard with the other inmates.

Percy:  Marcus, you just ate breakfast and you're waiting for Jan to finish taking pictures of Buddy and Merci for the dog food review next week.

Marcus:  Oh, what a relief!  My sentence has been commuted.

Percy:  Your sentence is way off track.  There is no such line as "prolly chompin biscuits and drinkin turkey tea" in the song.

Marcus:  There isn't?  Are you sure?

Percy:  Positive.  Here's Johnny Cash himself.  Listen and learn.

  5. I love Johnny Cash :) Nice video.

  6. That was a short sentence, Marcus. Whew!

  7. Well, I LOVE Johnny Cash but I did NOT hear 'turkey tea' or anything like what YOU heard, Marcus.
    I think you were wishful thinkin'...
    Maybe you could make up some new lines for the song and sell them. And I hope they finally let eat something fancy in your private dining car.

  8. We do like your private dining car!!!

  9. I'm a huge fan of the Man in Black. ♥ Have you heard A Boy Named Sue? It is so funny to me.
