The Type Of Child I Was

When I was young, say around 8 or so, I thought the lyrics to 'Papa Was A Rolling Stone' went-

"... and when he died, all he left us was a LOAN."

This, to me, was a most grievous offense. To be a deadbeat father was one thing. But to then die- and leave us with your debt?! Boy did that really burn me up!


Just felt like sharing.


  1. You can't be faulted for that misunderstanding..if you sing it in time, it works!

    Question for you is: at 8, were you THAT financially literate -- focused on your loot even then -- that you knew about amortization, and debt assumption??!

    And I thought I was a nerd! :)

    Good look, MM!

  2. Now THAT'S hilarious!!!

    I usta think Jungle Bros. said "Where's my houseshoe?" instead of "Girl I'll house you!"
