|President Barack Obama using his computer to catch up on current events|
Forgive me, but before we dive head first into today's entry, I have to get all my regular readers up to date on some of the goings on here at jimmyfungus.com.
First of all, the video bar, or video reel whatchamacallit, was having some trouble loading up...so I had to delete it. Which is kind of a bummer, because I found it extremely useful (at least for MY purposes). But on the other hand, the layout looks much simpler now. I catch a lot of flack out there in the peanut gallery saying my site is too cluttered, and the layout is lame yada yada, what not, and all this, and that, and all of the other things. Those are the most common complaints I get, in fact. So, I think that everything is pretty straight forward now. But I suppose the complainers who like to fling their turds will continue to do so, about something. (Though those are not my regular readers, who are definitely the most awesome people who have ever lived.)
One more brief order of business directly about jimmyfungus.com... I made an advertisement for the site. Or maybe advertisement isn't the right word? How about "pro-jimmyfungus propaganda"? Anyway, I will post it below, and you may call it what you will...

|"my jimmies are ready"|
Last week, or some time (I don't know when), I came across this ingenious "rustled my jimmies" (SEE: "That Really Rustled My Jimmies": THE COMPLETE COLLECTION) meme on the internets, but I didn't save it. The reason I didn't save it, was because it had to do with 9/11, and it would be too "controversial" to ever speak of on my tame, non-offensive website. (Oh, ya know, I feel so good right now, because I just took a shower..I should really do that more often....and brush my teeth, come to think of it.) But then one night when I was out purchasing potato chips, or soap (I can't remember which), I came up with the idea for the special "controversial" post..and I was like, "OH DAMMIT!! WHY DIDN'T I JUST SAVE THAT 9/11 MEME WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE!"
So, I did the only cromulent thing a sane rational human would do. I went back to the message board where I saw it, and begged for someone to post it again. I also prayed, and asked God for divine intervention, that by some miracle the person who posted it originally was out there, and would see my request. As usual, God mocked my trivial, mildly blasphemous prayer, and I only received ridicule from the other site users.

The only 2 posts in response were both negative. The first responder, posted this "forever alone" cartoon face, which unfortunately I did not save. I think it was their way of saying that someone must have totally no life whatsoever to make such a pathetic request on an internet message board.
The second response I received to my query on the message board was even worse. This poster wrote, "You're not retarded. Why don't you just go make it yourself."
At first, I was greatly discouraged by all this, and started beating my chest bellowing, "WHY DO I EVEN TRY TO DO ANYTHING!!! SERIOUSLY!!! WHY DON'T I JUST GIVE UP!!!!" But...later that day, I started to think that the person who called me "retarded" was correct. I should just try to recreate the meme for myself. So...that's what I have done...
|the very controversial, but very poignant 9/11 "rustled my jimmies" meme|
But the 9/11 "jimmies" meme reminded me of another "rustled my jimmies" meme that I wouldn't post here on this site because...well... I didn't want to rustle anyone's jimmies. Normally, I shy away from posting provocative material here at jimmyfungus.com... But as I said before, today is the day we are throwing caution to the wind...

|Carly Rae Jepsen in "Call Me Maybe"|
There is no bigger hit in pop music right now than "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen, and it has inspired it's fair share of cover versions. Even ones by the aforementioned Cookie Monster, and the aforementioned Barack Obama!

But I would be journalistically remiss, if I did not tell you about a version by the Barry White of our time...the Issac Hayes of our generation... a Mr. Tay Zonday.
And last, but not least is today's "Song of the Day." Today's song is "The Magic Key" by One T. & Cool T.
