"Guess Heaven Needed a X" rant

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Eagles1 in London, Sep 6, 2007.

  1. Read somewhere today that "Heaven Needed a Tenor". Apparently Heaven needed a shortstop a couple weeks ago too.

    Can we fucking stop with this horrible saying? Heaven doesn't need shit. Celebrities get old, or they get sick, and they die. Just like us. A little while back, my mother called to tell me the guy who lived next door to me when i was growing up had just died. Nobody said "guess Heaven needed a mechanic". Maybe they just don't drive cars there and instead walk to all the operas and baseball games that apparently happen so often that God is plucking retired celebrities left and right.

    sorry, but it just bugs me--rant over.

    Why exactly would heaven have a sudden need for a tenor, anyway? Had Enrico Caruso suddenly been reincarnated as a shetland pony, leaving a tenor opening in heaven?

    Heaven doesn't need mechanics. Angels float and magically appear.

    Heaven needed a rant like this. Top drawer.

    All I know is, when I get up there, Heaven will have immediate openings for some whores, a couple of the Keebler elves, and a hydroponic gardener.

    Heaven needed a tenor. Hell needed Yes, Giorgio.


    Good Lord. It looks like the Last Tango In Paris poster gone horribly wrong. Methinks that rose is going to find an unfortunate home.
