Don't Rush Me

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. - A pop culture controversy that has simmered for decades came to a head when a middle school marching band was told not to perform "Louie Louie."

"Louie Louie," written by Richard Berry in 1956, is one of the most recorded songs in history. The best-known, most notorious version was a hit in 1963 for the Kingsmen; the FBI spent two years investigating the lyrics before declaring they not only were not obscene but also were "unintelligible at any speed."

The FBI could spend two whole weeks investigating my blog before reaching the same conclusion.

The thing is, Harry, that they know something's happening, but just can't fathom out what it is!

As if anyone at the FBI is intelligent enough to read your blog...

Ah, Harry, I am way ahead of you. Recently I tried playing your blog backwards at quarter speed and I'm afraid I know your secret. Now, are you going to come clean or must I inform the FBI?

Why in the world would the FBI even bother with Louie, Louie? Government amazes me.
