Name That Lyric: Episode LXVIII: Anyone Remember "Talky Tina" ?

The doll that killed Telly Savalas on that episode of the Twilight Zone ?

I think she has been reincarnated and given to my daughters as a birthday gift...Here's what she looks like now:

That's right, she has CLONED herself as TWO dogs !!!
I was in the computer room last night. the girls were asleep. My Special Lady was out, having a few drinks, so she could come home and cope with being married to me, and I hear this voice say
"That tickles !!"
I recognized the voice, and I knew that both of the dogs were in the living room. I walked in,and there they were, staring at me with those dead eyes.But there was no reason they should have spoken. the cat was nowhere near them. Nobody could have activated them.
Now, if it had happened once, i would have been happy to laugh it off...but it didn't happen just once...It happened over and over again. They sang songs and giggled and demanded hugs, all of their own free will.
I was able to keep them happy, but what happens when they tire of me ? What happens then ? Does My Special Lady find me crumpled at the bottom of the staircase, the dogs innocently laying next to me ? Huh ? Does she ?!?!?!?
Well, I guess we'll go on with the game.

We have a winner from last week !!! The lovely and talented TPFKAMA correctly identified
"If it's love that you're runnin' from
There is no hiding place"

from "Don't Look Back" by the Temptations. Now, I didn't actually know it was a Temptations song, I knew it as a song by Peter Tosh and Mick Jagger. So, I have learned something as well !! Brava, TPFKAMA,brava !!!!

Onto this week's clue:
"Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',
I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation,"
Good luck, Crimestoppers !!!!!

I love this post! You may want to look into the possibility that your house was built on an ancient burial ground, and if you loose anyone late at night, check the TV.

My son has a toy cell phone that sporadically starts talking and singing in the middle of the night...Wait, maybe my house is on a grave yard!

The only thing worse than two of those fucking dogs is having that you can hear screaming toddler fights-"My puppy!" "No, MY puppy" amidst simpering cries of "YOU'RE my FRIEND" and a brittle version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes."

If you want to get REALLY dark, imagine the career ambitions of the woman who voices the puppy, and how low the puppy voice gig has brought her. Then listen for the despair behind the sunshine every time someone touches the fucking dogs.

OK, I feel better now. Thanks.

Did we miss the big day already? Balls! Belated birthday treats coming, post haste. No dogs or talking phones, I promise.
