Skip the light fandango,
Turn cartwheels cross the floor.
I was feeling kind of seasick
The crowd called out for more..

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SONG ABOUT?

The song Jesse is referring to is "Whiter Shade of Pale" best known for being recorded by Procol Harum. It's about a singer at a rock concert who's performing while stoned.

"And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale"

Who is the miller?

I love this thread, even though some contributions may not have a lot to do with travel.
Just last night I was reading James Patterson's 1st to Die and came across this:
"Never wrestle with a pig, Lindsay. You both get dirty. The pig likes it."

Couldn't help but think what good advice this is for those of us who become embroiled in arguments with trolls or rude posters.

"I believe in making the world
safe for our children,
but not for our children's, children.

Because I don't believe children should be having sex."
