Goodness Gracious Me by Peter Sellers And Sophia Loren
Mike Check: Well Fellers. It seems that you can’t please everyone that listens to The Mike Check Show. My daughter tells me that we have received some complaints about a song that I played about a week ago that was apparently offensive to fat…I mean…the “thicker type” of filly…weeelll as Peter Sellers would say: “Goodness Gracious Me”…here on THE MACKER!
Mike Check: And oh, I forgot to mention that Sophia Loren also co-sang that number. And oh…what I wouldn’t do to that pretty Italian filly? Speaking of the word “fat” from before, the only thing that Sophia makes “fat” is ole Mike’s pen—
Mike’s Daughter (*interrupts*): Dad! Please stop before you say something else stupid that that will spark more headaches for us on social media. And, by the way, that song you just played was also so stereotypical.
Mike Check: To who there darlin’?
Mike’s Daughter: I don’t know? To about 1.3 billion people in India, maybe?
Mike Check: Yes, but the Indian portrayed in this song is a doctor. And everyone knows that Doctors are smart. That’s good ain’t it?
Mike’s Daughter: Yes, but it’s still…(*You’ve got mail” notification shows up on Mike daughter’s computer)…Oh great, now see what you did!? We just received message from “The Great Khali”…and he seems furious. But…huh? He also says that he wants to send you a CD to play for our annual “Christmas Carousal”, sometime in December, to teach you a lesson about tolerance and respect? …But why?
Mike Check: Well that’s swell of him to send ole Mike a nice gift there.
Mike’s Daughter: *sigh* It just better be not be anything as bad as that Ninja Turtle CD that we were forced to play last year?!
Friday by Ice Cube
Mike Check: Weelll fellers! Today happens to be “Friday”! “Black” Friday in fact so–
Mike’s Daughter: No! Don’t play it!
Mike Check: Don’t worry there darlin, it’s not one of my golden oldies that you usually get bored with? It’s a more recent song called “Friday”–
Mike’s Daughter: That’s exactly what I’m afraid of–
Mike Check: And it’s by a feller who goes under the name “Ice Cube”.
Mike’s Daughter: …Oh, Good, You mentioned the words “Friday” and “Black” and I thought that you wanted to play that irritating song by Reb…(*interrupted by ominous music*)
(*Mike Check peeks out the window and panics. He quickly takes off his gold chain and watch and hides it under his chair*)
Mike’s Daughter: What’s wrong? I only see some guy riding a bike outside…and now he’s gone?
Mike Check: Phew. That was a relief there (*puts his gold chain and watch back on*).
Mike’s Daughter: Uh, dad? Where did you get that chain and…is that a Rolex watch, from anyway?
Mike Check: …Uh? At Black Friday sale once?…Yeah, that’s it.
