number nine and falling fast is now recognized as the world leader in solid douche… That’s right – according to Google, we’re now the undisputed “solid douche” authority. (I’m working on a press release acknowledging the honor.) Sadly, we’ve dropped to number nine in the more competitive arena of “ball shaving”, though.

Speaking of “number nine,” did you know that this week marked the 40th anniversary of my favorite Beatles’ recording, the white album, which contains the much debated song Revolution 9, in which the phrase “number nine” is repeated several times? I was going to link to it, but, instead, how about the far superior Dear Prudence? Man that’s a hell of a song… And, as long as we’re talking about it, I suspect most of you know that the song was written about Mia Farrow’s sister Prudence, who had accompanied the band to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s retreat in India, but did you know that, many years later, the young Farrow sister would be a production assistant on the film The Muppets Take Manhattan? I don’t know why, but I find that absolutely fascinating.

    When you play “Number Nine” backwards you can hear, “turn me on dead man, turn me on dead man”, in this really weird sounding voice. I’d play it like that on my dad’s turntable when I was a kid and it would really freak me out.

    All is not lost…. We also remain number one for “strangled by feet”.

    And wasn’t it “Sexy Sady” which was originally written as “Maharishi”?

    And did you folks know there is a Maharishi University in Fairfield, Iowa? I didn’t, until last year when I was there campaigning for Edwards. It’s a pretty good size university too. Plus Transcendental Meditation is hot!

    I found this ball shaving song to be incredible and thought that you might enjoy it as well.
