3. They damned sure didn't...
...infiltrate al Queda.

Yet I find them oddly...groovy.


Penalized for overuse of the ellipsis.

4. Donny hosted "Pyramid" for a while; I think that's out of
production now. It was the new, "improved" version of the classic Dick Clark game show.

Marie is married and has several children and struggled for years with PPD. Unfortunately, she's also had some not-so-good plastic surgery.

I have no idea about the others.

14. Yes, that's right. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have used the acronym.
I'm so used to it from parenting sites that I wasn't thinking.

6. Speaking of Osmonds, What Happened To Marie's Face?
I've seen a few pictures of Marie recently and it looks like she has undergone the plastic surgery from hell. Why did she do that to herself? I've seen Donny on TV. I don't know what happened to the rest of them.

8. They're pretty quiet lately
But those suits more than make up in loudness. Those clothes are bad even for the 70's?

Isn't Donny hosting $100,000 Pyramid?

9. Some of them look like the junkies who used to hang out under the
pier in Santa Monica.

Maybe they're still there. If I'm ever out West again, I'll take a look.

13. They play in Branson
One of them was diagnosed with Leukemia or something like that and is OK, but doesn't play with the brothers.

18. I'm a little bit Country!
I'm a little bit Rock 'n' Roll!

I'm a little bit of Memphis and Nashville
With a little bit of Motown in my soul
I don't know if it's good or bad
But I know I love it so
I'm a little bit country
And I'm a little bit rock 'n roll

He's a little bit gentle, he's a little bit runnin' wild
She's a little bit of ??? woman, she's a little bit of jive
Don't know if I'm happy or sad
My music makes me whole
I'm a little bit country
And I'm a little bit rock 'n roll

I like that peaceful easy feeling of a laid back country song
And when I sing my rock n' roll, I can sing it all night long
I love my country with all my heart and soul
I go out on Saturday night for a little bit of rock 'n roll
I know if I'm fellin' right
No matter where I go
With little bit of country
And a little bit of rock 'n roll

I like that peaceful easy feeling of a laid back country song
And when I sing my rock n' roll, I can sing it all night long
I love my country with all my heart and soul
I go out on Saturday night for a little bit of rock 'n roll
I know if I'm feelin' right
No matter where I go
With little bit of country
And a little bit of rock 'n roll

We're a little bit country
We're a little bit rock 'n roll

20. One Bad Apple
I can tell you've been hurt
by that look on your face, girl.
Some guy brought sad into your happy world.
You need love, but you're afraid that if you give in,
someone else will come along
and sock it to ya again.

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, give it one more try before you give up on love.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl.
Oh, I don't care what they say,
I don't care what you heard.

I could make you happy, baby,
satisfy you, too.
But how can I if you won't give me a chance
to prove my love to you?
Won't you just give me one chance?
I'll give you my guarantee that you won't be hurt again.

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, give it one more try
before you give up on love.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, I don't care what they say,
I don't care what you heard now.

I've been noticing you, baby,
for a long, long time.
And I'm not ashamed to tell the world
that you really messed up my mind.
Girl, to me you're like a dream come true.
I'd rather hurt myself than to ever hurt you.

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, give it one more try
before you give up on love, girl.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl.
Oh, I don't care what they say,
I don't care what you heard now.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch, girl....
