Origin of SQUAREFACE

Sat. 12/31/11 10:17am kat330:
Sorta reminiscent of "I'd love to teach the world to sing" (Coke song).
Sat. 12/31/11 10:21am Jasperodus:
"I wonder," did you mean "I'd LIKE to teach"...?
Sat. 12/31/11 10:22am kat330:
Oh, right. Just a snippet of Ronettes melody that sounded like that old commercial.
Sat. 12/31/11 10:30am Robert:
Was I still dreaming, or did I wake up briefly in the middle of the night and head the Old Coger make a prediction for 2012 on "Coast to Coast AM"? I just aroused myself enough to become aware of the end of the call, which Ian Punnett decried for its antisemitic content.

Irwin is the Old Codger. I kinda doubt Irwin is antisemitic.
You were pretty out of it, as you say. Or making a weird "joke".
Sat. 12/31/11 10:33am Robert:
I wouldn't doubt Irwin's ability to play ant-ANYTHING.

Loving the weekly Sandy. Thanks Bob. I am kind of on a kick myself. Check out my vinyl mix blog: www.platterplaylists.wordpress.com. I am only 25 so I am not as well versed as some of you... yet.

Thanks for keeping the flame burning. I happen to have a vinyl copy of this rare Runt issue, always wondered if it indeed was rare. Have a good new year!
