Home on the Range, Where the Deer...

I was taken out tonight by friends to a place in the foggy noman's land of Newton Falls, Ohio where karaoke is sung on Saturday nights in a countryside bar with a mounted deerhead that sings karaoke along with the singer. Unprepared for the mounted deer to sing alongside me, my immediate response was:

Did someone put something in my drink?????

Verrrrrrry scary!

But I plan to venture out there at least once more, if only to capture the singing mounted deerhead on video.

And they say Japan is strange.

Does the deer sing the same song you're singing, or it off doing its own thing? Are there harmony opportunities?

So...what did you and your pal sing?

(F'ing crazy, btw)

Sometimes I wonder if Japan and America's mutual fascination is driven by both countries' capacity for previously undiscovered heights of human weirdness! :)

Karen, it sort of mimes along with the song that's playing. No harmony opportunities, as I don't think it actually makes noise so much as acts as if it's singing. ;-(

Alan, I think I was singing "Walkin on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves.

Beth, agreed. hehe

From US, it seems.

Uh-oh, now Japan will think it's a craze and put deerheads in every karaoke room! Thanks a lot, Chris! ;D
