Today officially begins my taper.  And as should ever good taper program, it begin with a nice sleep-in until 8:00am.  God I feel so spoiled.

Yes folks, I got more than 6 hours sleep last night.

There is no swimming, cycling or running today but I am going to do a little light stretching on my yoga mat this afternoon in-between calls, partly to keep ‘ol Thunder n’ Lighting alive after this past weekends 220k worth of hot, sweaty suck and, partly to burn off a little of the pecan pie from last night’s BBQ.  My vinyl indulgence while doing so this afternoon is the ‘The Pill:  Administered Orally by…‘ The Brothers-In-Law.


This was a Goodwill Hunting find at the Value Village in St. Catharines, Ontario this past Friday for 50¢.

The Brothers-in-Law was a Canadian satirical musical group that was active in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, recording a number of popular record albums and generating occasional controversy.  The group was established in 1963 by four police officers in Windsor, Ontario (hence the name Brothers-in-Law). The group’s repertoire consisted mainly of musical satire poking fun at the Canadian government, sex and censorship, the law, and consumer issues. They performed and recorded a mixture of original songs and adaptations of folk and stage tunes (particularly based on Gilbert and Sullivan).

This particular album, released in 1967 obviously satirizes the then-topical issue of the birth control pill. The latter song was somewhat controversial for its subject matter and the album liner notes contained a warning to radio stations not to play the song.

But there are other songs on here as well that are just as much a giggle like ‘Lullaby to a Spoiled Brat‘, ‘The K-K-Ku, K-K-Klux, K-K-Klan‘, ‘Canusa the 51st State‘, ‘The Automobile (Hymn to Ralph Nader)‘, and ‘An Inexpensive Funeral‘.

So, yeah, even though ‘ol Thunder n’ Lightning are complaining a bit this morning at least they were in good spirits.


About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
