Check in if you hate "Puff the Magic Dragon"
I just realized how very much I dislike that song. I think it was after watching the Bob Dylan special and hearing Peter, Paul, and Mary (whom I kind of like) butchering "Blowin' in the Wind."

1. I love Puff! A dear childhood memory.
I used to sing it all the time as a kid, and still do sometimes.

You don't like Puff? Heresy! :evilgrin:

2. I think that was my second favourite song when I was a nipper
My favourite was "Bright Eyes."

4. You're supposed to check in if you HATE it!
LOL. Once at work I asked for someone who could speak Norwegian and within ten minutes had a lengthy list of those who didn't.

I suppose you like the Unicorn song, too?

7. Groan. You're hopeless.
I am going to have to arrange a snatch and grab for Progspawn to get him out of that house. He can come to 1gobluedem's and listen to the Clancy Brothers' childrens' album, as well as the Limelighters.

8. Well....haven't heard it in years
And since I'm not planning on it anytime soon, unless it's inflicted on me by my grandchildren, I suppose that doesn't qualify as hate. My 6 year old grandbaby did like "Blues Clues" for a while. That was pretty bad

9. You're the closest thing I have to an ally so far
There must be someone else out there who hates it! Especially when PP&M sing it and (I think) Peter starts using the strung out, quavering voice.

10. That insipid bilge...

13. I know! It's creepy and scary
as well as clearly being about either drugs, child abuse, hallucinations, or all of the above.
