Why whenever I hear this about this, do I think Donny and Marie have a show again?

clavdis, you stole my point. This is either a murderous plot or Bush is trying to appeal to the kids he's going to have to send to Korea, China, Georgia, Iraq, Israel in a few years. Oh wait that's a murderous plot too.

Strange. For some reason, this doesn't surprise me in the least.

I also heard a snippet on the radio this morning that apparently he's getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Appropriately enough, it is...outside of Ripley's Believe It Or Not (or so I heard).

Okay, so now can I say that George must be back on the blow?

I think the reason Bush invited Ozzy to the White House is so he feels smart. I mean, it did take Ozzy an hour to take the garbage out on that one episode. I am sure Bush could run laps around Ozzy in that department.

But I guess thats what happens when a man snorts lines of ants...

You know that if Clinton had invited Ozzy to the White House, the allegations of wrong doing would be absurb and never ending.

Luckily, Clinton apparently has better taste in music.

He'll invite Sam Cooke next, to win popular appeal in the next election...

IF it's true, it's simply a PR stunt.

"Mister President, the Prince of Darkness is coming. It's a good photo op for the young'uns. Act like you know who he is, and disregard any premonitions any of your staff has. He's hip with the youth."

It has style, tsarfan, but a bit on the gory side. Perhaps Ozzy just serenade Bushes Jr. & Sr. with "War Pigs." instead. :)

That's our Bush.

Hopefully the prez can give Ozzy a few tips on house training his dogs.

I hope Ozzie Sings the Black Sabbath song "War Pigs"
for the prez.

"War Pigs"

Generals gathered in their masses
just like witches at black masses
evil minds that plot destruction
sorcerers of death's construction
in the fields the bodies burning
as the war machine keeps turning
death and hatred to mankind
poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
they only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
as the war machine keeps burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of god has sturck the hour
Day of judgement, god is calling
on their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings

That Osbourne chaaracter has nothing sensible to say. He's just pushing his damned devil music at us.

Er, Ozzy.

Why do I suddenly not like the Osbournes?
posted by ncurley at 9:51 AM on April 7, 2002

Damn. Somebody quoted War Pigs before I could.

I can totally see 43 and Ozzy hanging out. I think they're intellectually equivalent. (Ozzy may have once had the edge here, but time wounds all heels.)

And, tcobretti, Crazy Train fuckin' rocks, even if the rest of Ozzy's solo stuff is cringeingly awful.

*bangin' head and makin' that evil devil's fingers sign thingie like Beavis*
