67 – WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW

 

After Thunder Babe assured Jordan and his brothers that her horse was still in a twelve step program, and thus would not be participating in the noon hour Octoberfest, introductions were made by Eric.

Stephen wanted to know, “So, do we call you Margot, or Thunder Babe?”

Wagging a finger at the brothers, Thunder Babe answered, “Margot, please. The Thunder Babe thing is just locker room jibber jabber. It’s very flattering, of course, but it’s just jock talk jabberwocky.”

“Jock talk jabberwocky,” Stephen repeated. “That’s excellent. Can I steal it?”

Flattered, Margot sought to impress a little more.

Jock talk jabberwocky
jibber jabber blither blather

Madonna loved it; loved it so much that she forgot all about being passed over for Gaga, and echoed it

“That’s great! Did you just come up with that?”

Laughing, Thunder Babe admitted she had, with an explanation, and a compulsory Canadian apology. “Yes. Sorry. My son, who fancies himself the next Slim Shady, is always busting rhymes at me. I guess it’s contagious.”

“Wow!” exclaimed Madonna. “It’s 25 years too late, but Dennis would have loved to use that in the Bulls dressing room, back I the day. He always laughed at the half time pep talks.”

Facing Margot, Stephen, who didn’t much care for Madge fawning over former flames, steered the conversation away from The Worm, “Pitter patter, let’s get at ‘er, as Margot says. The guys say you have a wild plan for the world.”

“Yeah, Margot, tell ‘em,” Marc insisted. “They’re gonna love it!”

Margot proved that a Thunder Bay spiritual guru can do more than just swill beer, and bust rhymes, but she busted a beauty, by Burt Bacharach to do so

What the world needs now
is love, sweet love
it’s the only thing that there’s just
too little of
