The Penis Metaphor is Strong with This One

Deanna Murray is back with an awesome conservative list of songs about guns!

Song: Happiness Is A Warm Gun
Artist: The Beatles

John Lennon got the idea for this tune from a magazine cover he saw. Writing* about this particular song, Lennon said he thought the headline of the article “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” was so fantastic he had to write about it. But one has to wonder if the “Imagine”-singing peacenik realized at the time that a warm gun usually means someone’s fired it.* Still, the concept was a hit* in the making as Lennon took three songs he’d been working on previously and formed them into this now-classic Beatles tune (for the record, I do know it’s not about firearms and is a sexual metaphor).

That is very exciting, but not as exciting as the ass gun.

*PUHLEASE if you are going to source everything from the Wikipedia READ THE GODDAMNED WIKIPEDIA, GODDAMN IT! And what the fuck is that shit about Lynyrd Skynyrd's top charting hit?

I have already ordered the Gate-of-Hell Penis Plug, & will be camping out next to the mail-box until it arrives.

Style suggestion: READ THE GODDAMNED WIKIPEDIA, GODDAMN IT!

READ THE GODDAMNED WIKIPEDIA!

That would have required reading three sentences into Lennon's quoted words. Be reasonable.

Style suggestion taken literally, thanks.

Also remembering and such.
She thinks that it's all about that one line doesn't she. Any other meanings or interpretations go go root themselves "Jon Lennon sed Warme Gunn, Yehaw!"

I, um, wow. I guess she blacked out at the word "insane" as some sort of psychological self-preservation method.

Peacenik.

Luv it. No, I do.

Take a human's innate preference for not being killed or made refugee by armed conflict and turn it into a vague pejorative.

'Cause, y'know, after all, nobody would really actually truly WANT to live in peace.

Would they?

I'm kind of sad that "hippienik" never came into play.

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

I'm surprised she didn't write that John Lennon, like Martin Luther King, Jr, would be a teabagger if he were alive today because SHUT UP!

We have always been at war with Hippiestan.

So the Breitbart crew nutures a secret admiration for closet Republicans?

Who knew?
