Did Miranda Lambert Write a Song for the Merger of HubPages & Squidoo! Sounds Like it! "I'm Just Like You Only Prettier'
I Think Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton Heard about the Merger of Hubpages & Squidoo and Wrote a Song!
Yep, Prince and I now officially have something in common - we both changed our titles! We're both 'formerly'.
Well hello! I'm the artist formerly known as 'The Country Music Contributor for Squidoo' and during my musical travels around the net, you should have seen my really cute jaw hit the floor when I discovered Country Star Miranda Lambert wrote a theme song for all of us!
Ok, hold on to your britches and don't get your panties in a bunch...she really really really didn't.
How the Theme Song COULD Have Been Born (It's possible?)
I think she and hubby Blake Shelton kicked back on a hot steamy Saturday night last week, tossing back tequila shots, snuggled up with a couple of ipads and began reading mind blowing stories about everything under the bloody sun on Hubpages and Squidoo.
Blake decided Hubpages, all the way baby, it's Hubpages. Miranda, gave him that, 'dayam girl look' and politely informed him with her very tough shaking fist that no siree-blakey-boy it's Squidoo all the way!
Follow me here.
Team Blake - Hubpages
Team Miranda - Squidoo
It's all true, I swear.
Then...wait for it....the theme song was born. And the rest is history. The merger in song.
Makes you wonder, what came first, the song or the merger? This entire collaboration may actually be the fault of a song. Scary, very scary to think about.
As Miranda sings, 'I've been saved by the grace of southern charm...so let's shake hands and reach across those party lines!' Blake begs her to stop.
Miranda keeps singing for team Squidoo... 'We're just like you, only prettier' - Ok. Seriously, that's funny! Squidoo has all the funk 'n color!
Blake's not impressed (...think Shania Twain's song...'that don't impress me much...so you're Brad Pitt...that don't impress me much) - that's Blake...color, funk, yadayada...he's all for the technically superior sophisticated writing platform! Such a practical dude. Must be a guy thing.
Sing it Miranda! 'We're just like you, only prettier' - I think she's heard about this amalgamation of writers and she's urging us to 'just shake hands' <---her words, not mine! don't get mad! Our dear Miranda is only trying to be helpful here!
(Lyrics) If You Wanna Pick A Fight, I'm Gonna Have to Say Goodnight...' LISTEN TO THE SONG! It was WRITTEN For US, Yah Really. No.
(Lyrics) 'Yah, I'll Keep Drinkin' and You'll Keep Gettin' Skinnier...'
A few Squids may have hit the bottle. It's true.
We'll give you that.
But since we are technically fish...
you can figure out the rest. Guzzle guzzle.
Squids have a lot to offer...we're not all slip and slime, we're also food for the world, we only come up for air once in a while. We're always in school, so we're smart.
Nemo of Finding Nemo fame, LUUVVES us.
Most of us are prettier than a hub?
How about this..we have a lot of arms and can type really fast. Seriously you have to admit that's impressive. Sometimes we hit ourselves in the face with those extra arms, and yah, we've knocked ourselves out once in a while doing it, but don't forget the typing, we type 8 times faster than other fish.
Here's the best part.
When we die, normally we'll get flushed down a toilet. Unless we're giant. Then we're cut up and flushed down a toilet.
BUTT. Emphasis on the extra T. You saved us Hub...you did. We are so pretty, so darling, so incredibly fishy that you couldn't resist us.
And we're grateful too.
So Miranda's asking us to team up, 'cause we're just like you...only prettier.
NOT my words. Herzzz!
(Lyrics..Blame Miranda!) '...We don't have to like each other but it's sure fun to pretend...'
You Know This is All in Fun Right!
On behalf of all things Country Music, I just want to say that I'm happy to be here - last week I was a screaming Squid, this week I'm morphing into a Hubaholic:
Hubaholic (definition): Formerly a Squid, who pulled out all of her hair, because Squids have lots of hair?, dove for the wine bottle, 6, no 7, times a day and started writing Hubs with her 8 arms.
I broke a nail. 8 in fact. We're no longer prettier.
Thank you for the warm welcome we Fish Out of Water have received here, and for the guidance, help and tips many of you freely offered.
It's going to be fun! Remind me I said that when our pages come in for a landing. I'm modifying 100's. Thank gawd for those 8 arms.
A Squid to a Hub, I'm picturing ... a fish who struck it rich, moved from his underwater fish house to a big hub on the hill. He just has to figure out the breathing part and stay alive!
