Poultry In Motion: Chicken Cherry Checkers

Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola
I don't need to try to explain
I just hold on tight and If it happens again
I may move so slightly to the arms
And the lips and the face
Of The Human Cannonball that
I need to I want to
–Savage Garden, I Want You

Those could quite possibly be the strangest song lyrics ever.

I was just going to call this table runner Poultry In Motion: Welcome {the fabric line is called Poultry in Motion, which I thought was very clever}. But that is just boring. I tried to come up with something a little catchier, but it just got weird. I went from Chickens & Cherries to Chickens, Cherries & Checks. That reminded me of the phrase in the Savage Garden song, "chica cherry cola," {which sounds deceptively close to "chicken cherry cola," which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.} Anyway, there you have it. That's how I arrived at Poultry In Motion: Chicken Cherry Checkers. And why I have an earworm.

That is quite possibly the goofiest table runner name ever. But it was a fun to make. And now you all have an earworm too.

That is a good name! Before I even got a quarter into this post, though, I was thinking of the lyrics from that BNL song, "One Week." Chickity China, the Chinese chicken..you have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'...

Okay, I'm weird that way. But now you can have a different earworm: http://youtu.be/snZcn3Qt1xI

I love the "Poultry in Motion" clever name, it's wonderful, having grown up on a farm, I love barnyard animals.

Cute Runner!
When I was a kid, someone ALWAYS requested this song when we went roller skating, so that's what it reminds me of. Roller skating. Oh, and stomps after school.
Totally love Savage Garden.
