Chapter 13, Page 9 A Song, Or Not

...bottles of beer on the wall...

I have gotten through the entire song once. And that was only because my co-workers wanted to see if I would actually finish it. Otherwise I have always been stopped, abruptly and sometimes violently, before reaching the end of the first verse.

Also, so sorry for the lack of updates. I could give all sorts of reasons for the delay but you've probably heard it all before. T.T One more strip in this chapter and then I have to figure out something else!

Aww.

It's good to see another MQC. :)

I was about to say it was better than "Small World", but I don't know.

Also, I've never heard of anyone even singing "99 Bottles..." outside of a long road trip, let alone on a dare at work. So you may have a first on your hands. :)

@Dad: Here's hoping I can keep it up!

@Dan: Actually, what might be worse is 'The Song That Does Not End.' lol And it wasn't exactly a dare. One of my co-workers was complaining that it was too quiet and that we should all sing something. Everyone else was ignoring her (because she's like that a lot, I guess) but I decided to start singing the most annoying song I could think of at the moment figuring that she'd interrupt with a 'never mind' or something like that. She started laughing instead. And no one stopped me! They wanted to see if I'd finish. Only they didn't tell me that until after I finished and I commented that it was odd that no one stepped in.

True, true, "The Song That Never Ends" (or possibly "I'm Henery the Eighth, I Am") would probably be worse; by their very nature, they just feeds the fire with every verse; the number of verses in any rendition of "99 Bottles..." is gonna be limited by the starting number of "bottles".

@Dan: What makes those two even worse is that they have very catchy tunes. You got me humming Henery the Eighth!

@Brigid:

Me: I've got a song that gets on everybody's nerves...

Ruth: NO! One more verse, and you will suffer the wrath of the Ruth!!

Me: Bum kings

Wow, congrats on making it all the way to the end! It would be even worse if it was 9,999 Bottles of Beer.

And good thing that no one interrupted you while you were singing. Then...it would have taken forever. XD

@Journo: I know that one! Gaaa! Now it's stuck in my head! Sic him, Ruth!

hehehe It is something of an accomplishment to get all the way through that song. Man, was my throat dry at the end.

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: I can only imagine.

Ahh!! Nice Ruth...don't kill me! XD

@Brigid: Wasn't sure where else to say, so I'll post it here.

Merry Christmas to you and your family from your fan. Have a wonderful day and best wishes to you and your loved ones this season.

Thanks for MQC. Lifting spirits since 2007. ^_^

@Journo: Aw. Thanks! And Merry Christmas to you, too! Hopefully with the insanity over, I'll be able to get the next strip out.

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: That would be great. And maybe it could be a chance to try out the Comicpress link, give it a test run.

Brigid said...

@Journo: Yeah. Maybe. ^_^
