Ted Turner当年创建24小时新闻频道CNN时,曾经豪气干云地发誓:俺们要一刻不停开机播放,直到世界末日。俺们将会实况转播末日来临,然后在'Nearer, My God, to Thee'的伴奏下,告别诸位!

我的妈!这简直太逗乐儿了。我想象着大家听说末日来临,急着赶回家去打开电视看CNN实况的情景。让世界末日快点来吧!我们都等不及了。真的!

但是'肥婆未唱,好戏还没完'(It ain't over till the fat lady sings)。一个曾经在CNN实习的小子举报说,还真有这么一盘录像备份在CNN呢,然后他就把一段录像放到了网上,一个军乐队吹奏着Nearer,My God,to Thee,吹得没滋没味。这是给全人类奏哀乐,不能振作一些吗?


英国佬在笑得打跌之余,当然不会放过调侃美国人的机会。BBC通告全世界征集末日转播音乐片段,立刻点中英语文化圈的笑点。

麻省的一位先生建议说,干嘛不用Turner家华纳兄弟LooneyTunes每次结尾的那个小肥猪呢?一阵闹哄哄的音乐后,小肥猪嬉皮笑脸地嚷嚷着:'Th-th-that's all, folks!' 这个我喜欢!我们都是看着那个节目长大的,听着让人挺放心,觉得明天还会来过似的。


但是不约而同来自澳洲、威尔士、以及北方邻居加拿大的一个建议在英语文化圈中获得同声喝彩:Always Look on the Bright Side of Life。这是Monty Python当年那部Life of Brian电影剧终时,钉在十字架上的人们唱的一首欢乐歌曲。

Monty Python's Life of Brian,那可是恶搞经典的经典。我们的主角Brian先生出生在伯利恒的一个马槽里。那天晚上于是就有三王来贺,朝觐未来的犹太之王。三跪九叩之后,Oops,拜错人啦!基督是隔壁那家马棚里那个小屁孩。哈哈哈!但是笑完以后挺悲剧的,Brian总是阴差阳错被人误认是弥赛亚,逼着他显神迹传达最高指示,不胜其烦哪!可怜的Brian想方设法东躲西藏,信众们却总是摆脱不掉,乌央乌央老是追随着他。这让领导们看着就很像是他在聚众闹事搞动乱,一来二去的,Brian就被判钉了十字架,特沮丧!不过到后来山穷水尽彻底的没了希望的时候,Brian也就阿Q一回,和架友们一起摇头晃脑在十字架上唱起了这首Always Look on the Bright Side of Life。知道这首欢乐歌曲的人,比知道《欢乐颂》的,可多多啦!


Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life... 
Always look on the light side of life... 
If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright side of life... 
Always look on the light side of life... 
For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.
So always look on the bright side of death 
Just before you draw your terminal breath 
Life's a piece of sh*t
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life... 
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

看得开: Any day you're above the ground is a good day!
几年前给民主致了悼词,现在该是给人类唱挽歌的时候了吧?
