Song of the Day 8/7/2009

On this day in 1999 – Violence erupted outside a Dave Matthews Band concert in Hartford, CT. 55 arrests were made in the parking lot of the Meadows Music Theater.

Question of the Day:

Would you rather suck on hair for five years, or smell like an onion for five years?

(Submitted by my nephew Christian)



  1. Kel/y_H said,

    I’ll take the onion. Maybe then people would leave me alone! Although I suspect that they would do the same if I were chewing on my hair.

    Did you hear the story about the woman with the bad habit of chewing on her hair and had a giant tumor hairball in her stomach with years of accumulation? Gross!

  2. Nicole said,

    Since I endured several months of only smelling onion-type smells, I’d choose to suck on hair.

  3. Emily said,

    Definitely the onion. Kelly, Leann sent me that story when I was pregnant. You can guess the outcome. Oh man, it still makes me queasy.

  4. amber said,

    I’ll suck the hair, I can’t even stand it when my fingers smell from cutting onions!

  5. enochfreeman said,

    No really. What kind of a question is that? It sounds like an option God would have given one of the Old Testament prophets.

    I would have to go with the onion. It would totally take less effort. And I don’t have much hair to suck on, so I would have to use someone else’s. No thanks.

    I think I’d rather get beat up outside a Dave Matthews Band concert than either, though.


  6. amber said,

    Yes, i’d rather brawl at the DMB show as well. Sounds like much more fun all the way around.

    • Kel/y_H said,

      NOW NOW, you two are violating the rules of “Would You Rather”. The choices are one or the other, no extraneous choices or qualifiers. I’ll have to issue the both of you with a citation.

      Of course, I would consider my mere presence at a Dave Matthews Band concert tantamount to being beat up.

      • amber said,

        Citation accepted!

  7. adamthepugh said,

    I’d rather smell like an onion. I really enjoy the smell of onions, although I’ve never wanted to wear the smell, it has to be better than the alternative. The hair thing makes my stomach hurt.

  8. Shannon said,

    I would definitely choose onion-odor. Sucking on my hair would create a bezoar, which – aside from being one of those “giant tumor hairballs” Kelly referred to – would also cause dark wizards to covet a thing growing in my body for its magical powers. This is not a safe situation to be in. Far more dangerous than the giant tumor hairball is the person who extracts it.

    I have a nephew named Christian as well, and this sounds like his kind of question. How old is your nephew? Mine’s 8.

    • adamthepugh said,

      My Christian is 12. We pondered questions for awhile last night, and this was the result! All his own.

      He has enjoyed seeing what you all have to say ๐Ÿ™‚

      • amber said,

        oh NOW u tell us this needs to be rated G! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • adamthepugh said,


        I like to think this group can always keep it respectful. Most of us probably don’t agree on a lot of things. But we do agree on the fact that music is wonderful, community is sweet, and questions are always fun to ponder.

      • amber said,


      • Shannon said,

        And besides, 12 is more of a PG-rated age.

      • amber said,

        yeah, i thought that when i said rated g, but every parent is different, so best to start at the maximum right?

  9. Natty said,

    Yeah, I’d call 12 more PG-13 ready…but as I left today Nick was watching Wayne’s World, so that’s probably just me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Suck on hair…I love to eat onions, but I hate how they smell.
