Things that I think and do

Some questions to which I may never know the answer.

"Hmmm...what *is* going on I wonder?"

“Hmmm…what *is* going on I wonder?”


  1. What is going on, according to Marvin Gaye?

He keeps asking brothers what’s going on but never really seems to get an answer.  Broadly speaking I seem to recall that the song is about civil rights in America but because Marvin died some time ago (something I only realised in about February) I doubt I’ll ever find out.


  1. Who let the dogs out?  And why?

In the summer of 2000 someone seems to have released some hounds, but instead of starting a full-scale investigation as to who did it and what their motive was, authorities at the turn of the millennium seemed satisfied with a repetitive song by the Baha Men, which gives us no answers.  Is the song a cutting political and social commentary?  Or merely a vehicle for canine onomatopoeic lyrics?  Who knows.


  1. Who framed Roger Rabbit?

I don’t know because I’ve never watched it and, frankly, I’m never likely to.  I don’t even know who Roger Rabbit is.


  1. Why are Mick McCarthy and Ian Holloway not in high demand as Premier League managers?

It’s a mystery to me.  They both have wonderful accents and are super merry characters.  Their presence can only brighten up any post-match interview, and would make a change from the current fad of foreign managers displaying zero emotion when their team scores a goal.  Playing it super cool doesn’t make you look edgy or enigmatic or endowed with unbelievable powers of management.  It makes you look like a dickhead.

    You really should watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Not only because it will answer the question, but because it’s really good!

      I sort of feel that if I’ve managed to avoid it so far in my life I doubt I’ll be watching it any time soon! Then it can remain a mystery to me.
