Hearing this on the radio today reminds me of the time that my daughter and I were singing all of our sentences to the tune of "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" because we just couldn't get the thing out of our heads. I'm doing the same things with this now. Gah!

'Ear Worm' is the perfect description!

When I heard it on the radio at first, it didn't really stick. but by the mid report, I got totally freaked out, especially when she repeated the whole passage with that quote.

I can't stop listening to this. Best title for an autobiography ever. Sometimes Behaves So Strangely.

Uh, what happened to the show about out of body experiences, Sunday at 6? I was waiting all day and was disappointed in the program.
