She Was Gonna Do What They Said Cain't Be Done


There's a lot we don't know about that runaway bride from Atlanta. More will come out in the next few weeks, and i'll bet you, say $80,000, that her little trip involved a dude in a black Trans-Am. The clue is right there in the song:

The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there's beer in Texarkana.
And we'll bring it back no matter what it takes.
"Atlanta." See? Coincidence? i think not.

She was westbound and down. Seriously, i'm tellin' you there was a dude involved that we haven't heard about yet.

Update: i was right.

snicker... perhaps it had something to do with the next line:

loaded up and truckin'

Does it make me a hick that I didn't even have to look up the lyrics?

Damn you are smart, Annie. I've been saying the same thing for days.

I figure that she went to tell an old beau goodbye and they ended up in Las Vegas, in his car. I'm betting no bus, hell, the station is in the next town over!

When she came to and thought about what she'd done, she beat it out of Vegas and caught a bus to wherever, turned out to be New Mexico or somewhere.

So, I'm with you, Annie. If this guy marries her, he should have his head examined.

And, in any event, he should request that she have a GYN examination immediately and give him the results.

Nah, she's not Sally Field. She's Bunny the porn star in The Big Lebowski:

"I know, I know, they're gonna kill that pooooor woman. You said it yourself dude. The slut kidnapped herself!"

C'mon, where was Bunny spreading it? If only she'd have cut her toe off and mailed it home.

Cue the Squirrel Nut Zippers version of Viva Las Vegas.

"What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" apparently didn't apply to her.

As Louis Prima would sing "Shouldn't a gone to the airport". (or, was that Sam Butera?)

Someday I will tell about my law school days and a weekend in Vegas with Keely, Louis and Sam.

If I could find the old Playboy magazine where they did the photo spread, I'd frame it, since I was in it.

It was sometime in the late 50's or early 60's.

What a wild time. I loved that group.

That's why you need a blog Shelly!

My Dad taught me to love Louis Prima. He has the original LP's of The Wildest and Call of the Wildest. Keely Smith had one of my favorite jazz voices of all. Terrible actress, though. Did you ever see that movie she did with Louis? She was deer in the headlights awful.

"Less than a week after it began, the latest media fad is slowly fading away. The satellite trucks in Duluth, Georgia have long packed up and left, and John Mason and Jennifer Wilbanks' 15 minutes of fame is about to run out. He'll be left to deal with the crazy woman he's about to marry, when he should really just set her things on the porch and run like hell."
