I want a shoplifter, just like the shoplifter...

... that married my old man.

ADDED: Just noticing I got the lyrics wrong. Based on Meade singing it in response to the linked story. I should have written: that married dear old dad. In case you don't get the allusion. (Skip ahead to 1:18 if you lack patience for this kind of old-timey nonsense.)



AND: If the girl that married dear old dad was Ozzie's Harriet, you'd sing it like this:

Mommy Dearest shoplifted from Lord & Taylor. Was probably spotted on the CCTV.

Lord & Taylor cameras also caught Dumbshits: The Next Generation.

Thank you Lord & Taylor CCTV!

Hmmm, I thought all these Moslems followed God and submitted to His teachings.

PS and a bit OT: 2 things that can be described as weird

The cops think they found the guy who was thought to be the Baaston Bomber. His body, anyway.

The Saudi who was supposed to be deported turns out to be a visitor to the O White House.

Several times.

That young woman has a pretty face but a really funked up mind.

Yet.

Those long flowing robes probably come in handy for shoplifting.

Saying that or thinking that is automatically qualifies you for coming the re-education camps. The bus will pick you up.

Try to get yourself a bargain, son, don't be sold on the very first one. My mama told me, you better shop around.

There is a new pic of suspect number 1 shirtless in the linky winky.

Amazing.

thanks.

Heh. I know someone who claims that a group of nuns in long flowing robs once took her shoplifting.

Only in San Francisco. And the mustaches were the cherry on the icing. Btw, "nuns" are cloistered, and you wouldn't see them in public. As far as believing that a group of Roman Catholic "nuns" would shoplift? Not bloody likely.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Kind of reminds me of Corrie Rachel and her family.
Naive multi-culti's.

In case it matters, my grandfather would, on occasion sing it the way Meade sang it. He'd sing it the more normal way too.

My grandfather was a musical encyclopedia.

I recognize the slim lady, it's Joan Davis of I married Joan a TV show in the fifties. The second TV show after Dragnet that we ever watched on TV. We visited our neighbor's home and watched it along with My Little Margie.

She died young at age 48 from heart disease.

Joan Davis died age 53.

"On May 22, 1961, Davis died of a heart attack at the age of 53 at her home in Palm Springs, California.[2][3] She was interred in the Holy Cross Cemetery mausoleum in Culver City, California.

On October 24, 1963, Davis' mother, daughter Beverly Wills, and two grandchildren were all killed in a house fire in Palm Springs, California.[4]"

Thanks for the David Nelson clip. Like him, I was the elder of two sons, and I identified with him more than with Ricky. David had a pretty good singing voice, although not Ricky's charisma.

David showing why Ricky was the rock star.

Meade must be free of Oedipal urges if he couldn't get the song right.
I guess that's a good thing.

Shoplifters of the world, unite and take over.

Mom-of-the-Year was arrested for stealing $1600 worth of merchandise, which in Mass. is felony larceny, punishable by a $1000 fine and/or 2 1/2 years in jail. She failed to appear at the first court hearing last year, which triggered an arrest warrant for her. Yet, apparently, one can depart for overseas from a US airport without an outstanding felony warrant showing up against one's passport.

Thanks, TSA!
