C'mon, everyone loves karaoke, right? Right? Guys?

You should be thankful you didn't have me in the audience. The first, last and only time I ever sang Karaoke was several years ago. After imbibing 3 Long Island Ice Teas (and having no tolerance whatsoever), I decided "My Ding-A_Ling needed to be heard. Right. *cough*

Okay, I shall confess -- I love karaoke. But I will only sing a song that all the drunk people in the bar KNOW and will SING ALONG WITH, thus DROWNING ME OUT (i.e. "Friends In Low Places," "Louie Louie," etc.). Non-fun-loving karaoke-singers who don't accept, nay, EMBRACE their own lack of talent and use it to their advantage ... they just make me want to beat them with an amp. God bless you for not braining that terrible woman.

I had one good experience with karaoke, and it ROCKED. It was at a private karaoke place, where you rent your own room and karaoke machine, thank you very much. Imagine twenty people, ten guys and ten girls, seventeen Chinese and three white, packed into a little karaoke room. When our time was up, we all rushed to the electronic pick-out-your song thingy, and accidentally hit "random." Waited.... "Love Shack". DAMN, did we have a good time!!!

I like watching people sing karoke. As UB has pointed out, the most entertaining ones are the folks that take themselves waaaaay too serioulsy and have crap for talent. It's easy and fun, to laugh at them.

Espicailly if they are elderly.

Hey....nursing home karoke....Big money. Big laughs = Profit!

Aww UB cut her some slack - Rocky Top sounds like a dog being neutered without being knocked out first, regardless of who is singing it.

UB, have you listened to some of these 'punk' or 'emo' bands? >_< Someone tried to kill a cat on their last record, I swear...

The Squeaktress likes to give the worst karaoke "artists" enthusiastic standing ovations and will have me send them a drink. Her theory is that the more lame the attempt, the more entertaining it is. I think she's right but then, we're sick that way!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! WHEEEEEEEEEE! Karaoke is just TOO MUCH FUN!! 'specially when one is smashed, can't see a thing AND has no talent. BRING IT ON!!!!!!!

The most productive and overall efficient thing to do with either of those people would be to stab them when they aren't looking. Sure, law suits, yadda yadda yadda, but really... it'd be worth it... wouldn't it? Of course it would! That's not even a viable question!

Tenshi-- Be careful with that joke, it's an antique!

My step daddy is such a karaoke geek he keeps a karaoke cd in his car just in case!!!!!!!
nautile - 2005-08-27 21:23:10
Rocky Top?! Eww, I bet the 'Bama fans in there were cringing . . .
E Dog - 2005-08-28 00:07:04
Someone sang "Rocky Top" in a bar in Alabama and wasn't immediately killed? Call the Vatican, I think we have an authentic miracle on our hands!

I don't know what you were expecting. Sounds like your average Tennessee fan to me.
vitamin c - 2005-08-28 23:18:19
Hope you are safe from the hurricane, UB!

I really hope that this story is an exaggeration and not how you really treat customers. Karaoke can be so much fun - especially when there's a great host.
