In case you were wondering, NO, this is NOT a Portal/GlaDos reference.
It is a reference to the stupidest children’s song every to have mortified this planet. It is in Hebrew, which is already bad, because Hebrew is not a particularly pleasant language. The bulk of the song is this: “Where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is, where is the cake?” – The number of “where is”s is NOT exaggerated. I counted.
It’s bad enough to have to listen to that horrible monotonous song over and over, but what’s worse is that’s accompanied by the need to listen to horrible pop songs as well. All of these lovely tunes drifting, or rather pounding, through the windows of the house from the birthday party in the park. Of the hits I got to listen to over and over this afternoon: “I Want It That Way”, “It’s In Your Eyes”, “The Ketchup Song” and “The Macarena”. If you haven’t heard of any of these songs, consider yourself extremely fortunate.
I wouldn’t be quite as negetive if I didn’t know that it’s illegal to use huge speakers in our park. I’d like to hang signs up all over the park requesting, eloquently and politely, for people to stop using illegal loudspeakers for their children who are NOT deaf. Perhaps something along the lines of “You and your crotch-droppings suck for abusing my eardrums!” would suffice.
EDIT: Paul McCartney sang an awesome concert and is very much alive. Just so you know.

That post made me giggle a lot, thank you. I think it’s helping with my hangover, though I’m still lacking cheese omlette 😦 – I instantly thought it was a portal reference and that funny becasue how many people reading your blog are really going to think that straight off, so thanks for clearing that up straight way. Glad to hear about Paul – I’d be v.upset if he was assasinated….
I’m so glad you enjoyed it AND that you got the non-Portal reference.
Cheese omelet is perfect hangover food.
