“Short People Got No Reason”

Short people got no reason
Short people got no reason
Short people got no reason
To live

A classic song by Randy Newman, you must check it out. Now I come from a long line of short people but make no mistake we are a proud people. And this song would make it’s rotation in my house at least a few times a year when I was growing up. And my dad would laugh his ass off. It is our sense of humor that has sustained us short people for thousands of years. At any rate, I was overjoyed to see metro had unveiled it’s hanging straps on some metro cars. Upon seeing these straps, the song immediately popped into my head, short people go no reason, short people got no reason to live…and then I couldn’t stop smiling.

  • Ha! My daddy would play that song and we would laugh at my little brother. It was our “inside joke.” My brother, of course, is 6 ft 2 inches tall today and I’m barely 5 feet with shoes on. So I guess the joke’s on me.

    And I can’t reach that handle thing, not without a chair. So, it’s of no use to me.

  • Ha. Wasn’t that song banned from broadcast within the state of Maryland, for its ungodly offensive nature? Egad, what a bunch of pooterheads.

    Or was that just another suburban legend regarding Maryland? Either way, pooterheads.

    Viva squat chaps!

  • They got little hands
    And little eyes
    And they walk around
    Tellin’ great big lies
    They got little noses
    And tiny little teeth
    They wear platform shoes
    On their nasty little feet

  • And they’re still too high for me (grumble)
