Getting Down With Norma

As you may recall, Norma wowed us with a rousing rendition of “For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow” on her squeezebox…


[via]

You might say Norma’s a “one hit wonder” as that’s all she could play up until now.

Winter's come early in Minnesota so to pass the time, it looks like she's taken up Russian AND expanded her repertoire...



Should we continue to support Norma's musical "talent" or is it time to gently steer her in some other direction?

  6. I don't think norma would have any use for a gentle steer.....

    Now, an angry bull or three, I'm sure she could use...

    1. Can you squeeze out for us the "Big Valley" theme song on your box?

      Or do we just continue assimilating information that reveals, approximately, the depth & width of the big valley that is your box???

    2. continue your assimilation, please.

    1. "Can she prance up a hill? No! No! No! No! No!
      Can she dance a quadrille! No! No! No! No! No!
      Does she fit in my coupe? By herself she's a group.
      Could she possibly sit up on my knee? No! No! No! No! No!
      She's too fat for me!"

  9. That's 52 seconds of my life I won't get back. But it was kind of Norma to play us a tune on her moth-eaten old box with retractable flaps.

  10. I recognize the woman in that video, that's Babushka Betty, star of the 1903 St. Petersburg Follies ! How kind of her to play us a song celebrating the first day of Summer in Siberia.

    1. Hello, Anonymous.

      You've popped by several times recently but we don't know who you are.

      Be a peach and use a name, won't you?

  11. Norma has always been too much talent for one continent. Rumour has it her cd 'one night with Norma' is even on the Mars lander. Talent will out - that's what kabuki always says.
