The Industrious Residents of Blaine

It is the end of a particularly long day where I was forced to yell at two specific people (and found it requisite to yell ABOUT those self-same people to at least a baker’s dozen). Mercifully, Joe Miller’s Candy post calmed the wild beast and encouraged me to focus on the fact that my labors bring delicious joy to millions.

In this state of reflection, I can’t help but be reminded of the incredibly industrious residents of Blaine, MO. With a smile on their collective face and a song in their collective heart, they created a movement. A stool movement.

Ah yes, the inspiration of Waiting For Guffman.  It’s a work ethic like this that makes me proud to be an industrious American.  Please, sit back and take a moment to internalize the beautiful and moving lyrics to “Stool Boom

By the pool, in the school, by the fires of yule, it’s the rule there’s a school there’s a stool.  Stools are where, once upon a time you found a chair; A chair’s for fools, everybody wants stools!

STOOL BOOM!  From the parlor to the pool room!  We’re the center of a stool boom! Everyone know’s our name!  

Working, building, never stopping, never sleeping, Working, making, some for selling some for keeping.

You will drool at the splendor of these magic stools.  It’s the rule!  Everyone has a stool!  Just three legs.  It’s the thing for which a monarch begs, hock your jewels, use your money for stools! 

STOOL BOOM!  Just three legs and watch the sales zoom!  Like a fever it’s a stool boom!  And it’s spreading out from Blaine!

Working, building, never stopping, never sleeping, working, making, some for selling, some for keeping, working, building, never stopping, never sleeping, working, making, some for selling, some for keeping…

So next time you yell at work, and then at happy hour tell an individual they really ought to leave before you drop kick them (might or might not be a direct quote), remember your own personal mission statment.  And if you don’t have one, simply borrow it from Blaine.
