MMMSnap!

Rediscovered today this old bit from Jon Stewart's Naked Pictures of Famous People, "A Very Hanson Christmas." Those of you who remember those teeny-bopping twerps-- like Vietnam and that time Father Shaughnessy asked you into the rectory-- will relish the volta with which the third letter begins.

If you inexplicably managed to miss the phenomenon of that over-tressed trio in the late nineties, count yourself blessed. You can Google them yourselves should you wish, but I, for one, don't want that term anywhere in my search history.

haha, yes I (unfortunately) remember Hanson. I think I was in grade 11-12 when they were really big, c. 1998-99

On a similar note, I heard a rumour last night that the Spice Girls may be getting back together. Don't ask how or why, but i was one of about twelve people in the world who had the misfortune of seeing "Spice World" the movie.

Alas, I too was subjected to Spice World. The torture one endures when one is in [Ed: Offensive four-letter word deleted]....

pious labours; you think 1998-99 was ancient, think NKOTB , were you in existence then?

dr j - oh c'mon, spice world wasn't so bad, you probably lived through the abba period(expletives deleted) then again, remember those spice parties and the revival of '70s fads in the late 90s?! arrrggghhh!

p.s. were you accosted by shaugnessy dr j? guessing you're not catholic by that quip

Dr J said...

No, j, not Catholic-- and so no experiences with Father Shaughnessy. Was baptized Anglican, which taught me only one thing: the virtues of divorce. ;-)
