Man, Frankie Yankovic really went for the whole package in Sweden, didn't he?

When a wee lad, I once kicked a guy in the balls who was trying to bully me. Oh, he also played accordian. Anyway, I really shouldn't like the smile, but I do.

Thorlac said...

I bet he wasn't playing his accordian at the time, though, was he? Because then he'd have been wearing his cup--accordian players quickly learn that ball-kicking comes with the territory.

D. Sidhe said...

You people. I like accordions. I also like bagpipes, so maybe it's just me.

I must note that this picture, while delightful, is somehow... *just* missing something.

Ankles. They cropped her ankles!

(What did you think I was going to say?)

Two can play this game.

Woodrowfan said...

Well, I'm certainly aware now!

D. Sidhe said...

That picture makes me feel plenty safe, erobin. I'm reminded of the firemen calendar someone once gave me...

It's also National Great Outdoors Month. Maybe someone could offer us a park ranger. Either gender is fine by me, as it's also Gay and Lesbian Pride Month.

eRobin said...

Mmmm ... park rangers.

KathyR said...

Sorry, Robin, but Plastic Boy just isn't doing it for me.

Doghouse: Aren't "awareness months" generally for diseases? Not that the accordian isn't a disease...

I once happened upon 100 accordians playing that accordian classic "Lady of Spain"(?). I wasn't sure whether I was traumatized or transported. It sure was something. The place was Washington Square, San Francisco on a Sunday when the locals were celebrating Columbus Day. I wouldn't make up something like this.

KathyR: He's not supposed to!! I tried to find the dullest person I could without being cruel. But now that I think of it, a giant yellow suit and a white plastic hat ... depends how you work it.

harry near indy said...

oh ... now i get it! it's a visual pun!

lady of spain i adore you ... with adoration as a euphemism for lust.

Heydave said...

Hey, I have nothing against accordians OR bagpipes, myself. But you whistle off-key and I'm going to kick your ass up your esophagus.

I'd adore her if this picture didn't make me think of Dick Contino in thigh highs and boy shorts pulled up to his armpits.

Hike Your Pants! Hike Your Pants!


There's a band from SF called Those Darn Accordions that do classic rock songs with a full on- three accordion attack.

Stairway to Heaven, won't Get Fooled Again, and Devil Went Down To Georgia with an accordion rather than a violin.

Their version of Pump It Up is priceless.

Thanks for the pic tho Doghouse.
