Every blank text box is an opportunity for comedy, friends. Never forget that. And some jokes simply write themselves.
“2010 was a big year. Obama put the affordable care act into action, Julian Assange unleashed his WikiLeaks, and the Chilean miners were trapped and later rescued. It was also the year that Canadian singer/songwriter Neil Percival Young turned 65, officially making him a senior citizen.”
“The name Neil Young promises a certain youthfulness to the uninformed listener and, while his alto singing voice remains boyish, it has become a matter of false advertisement. It’s time for “Shakey” to face the facts: he’s not a young man anymore and every passing day makes his name more of a misnomer.”
“I believe that after all these years of acclaim, accolades, and respect on the part of his fans, the least Neil could do is legally change his name to Neil Old.”
