R Kelly – I Believe I Can Fly.

So the greatest track ever to come out of the entire continent of Africa got a big, fat ‘0 Comments’. You must all be punished. As much as I’d love to come round and spank each and every one of you, I’m a busy man so I’ll make you listen to this R Kelly dirge instead.

I Believe I Can Fly is a favourite song of motivational speakers. Quite why is beyond me. Not only does this track make we want to rip my own face off but R Kelly seems a strange role model given his habit of putting his ‘key’ in the ‘ignition’ of girls too young to drive. He even went the whole Jerry Lee Lewis and married Aaliyah when she was 15. Another favourite of the motivational types is Hero by warbling wrist-slasher Mariah ‘I don’t do stairs’ Carey. It’s enough to give you the impression that being a highly-motivated go-getter is against God and nature.

My personal philosophy is that the key to happiness is lowering your expectations. I’m going to write a song about it. It’ll be called I Believe I Can Have a Bit of a Sit Down. I don’t expect it’ll sell well.

Sorry Woodshed, couldn't comment on the previous post due to chokin' on my Pot Noodle having clocked the lady in the photo flickin' her bean.

Anyway, I went to my young child's end of term School Concert last night, where the choir of 9 year olds gave a rousing rendition of R Kelly's 'opeless opus. It went, "I Believe I Can Fly, I just got shot by the FBI, All I wanted was a bag of chips, Salt N vinegar on my lips.
... And so it went on.

'Way to go, y'all' (and other cries of a motivational nature).

I understand 'flicking her bean' but what is 'choking on my Pot Noodle' slang for?

If it's what I think it is you must have a very flexible back.
