Kansas City Attempts To Remember Woodstock 50th Anniversary



True story . . . TKC knows the nun in this photo. She's actually every bit as cool as she seems and continues her life's mission helping people last we've heard.

A few of our readers remind is that it's the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock . . . The good one, not the one where Fred Durst encouraged a riot and a mass  gang rape arson-fest ensued.

Accordingly, because we are stardust and fans of classic rock . . . Special thanks to a few of our most AWESOME READERS readers who remind us to at least mark the occasion and provide favorite further reference as is our custom.

I wonder how many sluts got fucked at Woodstock. Probably most of them got gangbanged.

@7:50-ask your mom. She was there. We called her the Woodstock bicycle. Everyone got a ride!

Who is the nun? Can you do a personal interest story on her? Very interesting story, would like to hear it please.

There once was a Nun who was glad,
of a "religious experience" she'd had
but it wasn't the Almighty that lifted her nightie,
it was Father O'Reilly, the cad!

It was a counter-culture answer to a decade of political turmoil. Three political assassinations, & a riot, with egregious response at The Democratic Convention in Chicago.

Three days of music & peace.

Then, in 1970, four college students were shot & killed in "self-defense" by National Guardsmen 100 yards away!

Hey 9:59

There was a young monk from Siberia
Whose morals were very inferior.
He did to a nun
What he shouldn't have done,
And now she's a Mother Superior.

There was a young girl from Nantucket,
who washed out a few things in a bucket
but the gales and the breezes
blew away her chemises
so she threw up her hands and said "Goshdarnit"!
