“OOM – PAH – PAH” – SECOND NIGHT OF THE 46TH ANNUAL NATIONAL TRAINERS SHOW – EXTREMELY LACKLUSTER – ITS DYING ON THE VINE EXCEPT FOR THE BIG LICK ADDICTS-

SHELBYVILLE, TN – The sore Big Lick is like the “Oom – Pah – Pah” song from the musical “Oliver”.

“They All Suppose What They Want To Suppose

When They Hear Oom – Pah – Pah”

And the Band was playing on at Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

“Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes.
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows…”

Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes,
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows.
They all suppose what they want to suppose
When they hear…oom-pah-pah!!

The Big Lick aficionados are not demented, but they are not very well either.

It truly is an addiction.

It’s a sad commentary when they sanctimoniously pray and sore in conjunction with an event that transforms normal law abiding citizens into a semi-delusional state that feeds off the comraderie of each other for a lost criminal cause that they consider sport and family entertainment.
