Last Request...

Two prisoners, sentenced to die in the electric chair on the same day were led down to the room in which they would meet their maker.

The priest had given the last rites, the formal speech had been given by the warden, and a final prayer had been said among the participants. The warden, turning to the first man, solemnly asked, "Son, do you have a last request?"

To which the man replied, "Yes sir, I do. I love dance music. Could you please play "The Macarena" for me one last time?"

"Certainly," replied the warden.

He turned to the other man and asked, "Well, what about you, son? What is your final request?"

"Please," said the condemned man, "KILL ME FIRST."

Have you ever heard “The Macarena?” What an annoying song. But it doesn’t stand alone in the annoying song category. I’m sure you can think of a few: “This is the Song That Never Ends,” “The Chicken Dance,” “My Heart Must Go On,” “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” “I Shot the Sheriff,” and “Feelings.” Now I could on and on, but then you might get some of these tunes stuck in your head. If you did already, I’m very sorry.

I think I too would be in the "KILL ME FIRST" category... otherwise I'd spend ETERNITY with the Macarena song stuck in my head... then I'd surely know where I ended up!!

Have you read the Dave Barry book about the worst songs ever written? You would absolutely love it! It's called Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs and it is one of the funniest things I have ever read. Here's the link to it on http://www.amazon.com/Dave-Barrys-Book-Bad-Songs/dp/0740706004/sr=8-2/qid=1160718243/ref=sr_1_2/002-3495616-8295217?ie=UTF8&s=books
