Fray Pascual 4

Unheard Musical Notes:

Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture was originally written by a local garage band called "The Smudge Pots."

Schubert's Unfinished Symphony stayed that way, because he forgot to pay the rent and got evicted by his landlord.

The rock group 'Steppenwolf' got the idea for "Born to be Wild" while they were walking by an organ grinder and his monkey.

Unlikely Theme Songs:

The Internal Revenue Service - "You've Got A Friend"

Worst Slogans:

Ma Barker's Gunpowder Cookies - "These babies will blow your ear wax out."

Zeke's Funeral Parlor: "You ain't died till we bury you."

Melvin's Used Masking Tape Museum: "Let the nations fall silent before the beauty."

It's all bridges under the water now.

He'd give you the shirt off your back.

It's a 9 to 5 job 24 hours a day.

Any storm in a port.

It was a shotput wedding.

They had us over a barrel of monkeys.

He's like a bad penny - always turning up a dollar short.

A stitch in time is worth two in the bush.

If you can't get there on time, then get there early.

All clocks will be set back so we'll have time to be late.

They were on sale at three for a dozen.

Sometimes life closes one door, but shuts another.
