“A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.”
BONUS - The Book of Love - The Monotones, 1957 - The video quality on this fades out from time to time. I like that; my memories of that time do the same thing.
|"The Book of Love" (also titled "(Who Wrote) The Book of
Love") is a
rock and roll song, originally by
The Monotones. It was written by three members of the group, Warren
Davis, George Malone and Charles Patrick, and it peaked at #5 on the
Billboard Hot 100.
Lead singer Charles Patrick heard a Pepsodent toothpaste commercial with the line "wonder where the yellow went". From there he got the idea for the line, "I wonder, wonder, wonder who, who wrote the book of love", working it up into a song with Davis and Malone. The "boom" part of the song was a result of a kid kicking a ball against the garage while they were rehearsing. It sounded good, so they added it to the song.
In September 1957, the Monotones recorded "The Book of Love", which was released on the Mascot label in December that year. The small record company could not cope with its popularity, and it was reissued on Chess Records' subsidiary Argo label in February 1958. It attained a Billboard ranking of #5 for pop songs and #3 for R&B in 1958. It also reached #5 in Australia...

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/24/17:
|I didn't know if my young
granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I
would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me,
and always she was correct. But it was fun for me, so I continued.
At last, she headed for the door, saying sagely, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!"
