in reply to Drunk on golf: 99 Bottles of Beer

eyepopslikeamosquito,
t also pops up often in popular culture, especially film and TV. I remember the late Patrick Swayze, for example, singing it over and over again to Whoopi Goldberg in the movie Ghost in order to get her to go downtown (which she would never normally do).

It has been a while but I think you are wrong. I remember the song he sang as "I'm Henery The Eighth, I am I am". On a side note, I do believe there was a reference in a ghost show. According to 99 Bottles of Beer, it appeared on an episode of the Ghostbuster's cartoon.

I always enjoy your posts and this is no exception - I just seldom have anything to contribute :-)

Cheers - L~R

    Yes, you are right re "Henery the Eighth, I am". I found a youtube clip which shows Patrick Swayze singing Henry the Eighth to Whoopi Goldberg, as you say. Ghost is one of my all-time favourite movies, and I've seen it many times, but don't own a copy. It's been a while, but I remember a later street scene, where Whoopi tries to renege on going downtown and Patrick responds by singing 99 bottles of beer. Whoopi then quickly changes her mind and goes downtown as agreed. I could be mistaken though, and can't find a supporting youtube clip.

[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
[Your Mother]: "They" is becoming accepted but it irritates me sometimes. I tend to just pick she or he randomly or try to use "one."
LanX thinks it is appropriate here :)
[Your Mother]: They would think so.
[jdporter]: ok, I need a recipe for piping lines "through" an external program which is itself a filter
[jdporter]: without using a tmp file
[1nickt]: tobyink perl -MTypes::Standard= is_Int -Mstrict -wE 'say 1 if is_Int 1.0'
[jdporter]: so that I can use the existing expand unix util. Otherwise, I'll probably use Text::Tabs.
[1nickt]: pryrt I guess I don;t really care if user 42 logs on as 42.0 ... more of an academic question at this point.
