Ronnie Scott joked:
"Our cook is Japanese. Every 7th of December he comes out of the kitchen and attacks Pearl Bailey."
"Hear about the Japanese guy who hates rock and roll? Every December 7th he attacks Pearl Jam."
I'm not being humourless here, nor touchy in some politically correct way; no, I'm just totally clueless. I just don't get the joke.
Or is it just a joke about losers finding it hard to accept they've lost? But what's Pearl Bailey or Pearl Jam to do with it? Do they stand for the new kid in town, the victory of the better? I'm at a loss.
Be this as it may, I've been in a bad mood for the last two hours - just back from watching the Champions League (soccer) encounter Bayern München - Manchester City (2:3). It's taken me some 30 years to become (last year) a Bayern München fan - and now this rout. Scheiß Bayern! The midfield (Thiago, Kroos, Götze) was an unimaginative disaster, and the central defense (Dante, Boateng) just one hell of a beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.
Jazz is always good for my nerves:
