Most flagrant abuse of the word "essential" I have ever come across

liked the simple "Essential Kenny G" post you had yesterday. I laughed my ass off. Well. I wish I could laugh my ass off, its gotten rather huge.

The one with nothing in it? That was a mistake--I meant to hit "safe draft" and hit "publish" instead. But if you were amused, I'll take the credit!

MsYvone said...

ha, that is good. I just took it as throwing the perfect oxymoron out there to see who would get it.

Other good ones...
Christian Scientist,
Military Intelligence,
Vacation Bible School

Or hell. "Little Debbie" In my case, thats a grand oxymoron.

Alas, there is nothing basic or indispensable about kenny G.

I love military intelligence. Great oxymoron.
And who the hell is Kenny G.?

Jim Donahue said...

Kenny is a mysteriously popular pseudo-jazz performer in the U.S., Sam. Light jazz--very light jazz. Or perhaps "lite" might be a better way of putting it. The "essential" collection is getting flogged repeatedly in TV ads these days, and it's making me crazy.

I hear Kenny G is working on a collaboration with Richard Clayderman.
