The Zen of Jordy

Am I seeing things or did pint-sized, ultimately exploited, early 1990s disco star Jordy grow up to be Eckhart Tolle? Maybe it's just me, but the resemblance is uncanny. Dur dur, d'etre une New Age Guru. Just don't tell Oprah.

Good God.

Sometimes I think about all the things I would never even have heard of, had I not started to frequent this place.

Then again, you did introduce me to "Polk Salad Annie".

Rich - Two more visits to this site and I will be able to confer unto you the M.J.A. (Master of Junk Arts) diploma.

That is one disturbing video... in so, so many ways.

Hey, say what you want about Jordy, but I for one think it's pretty amazing that they managed to teach that baby to speak French.

Joy - Based on the parenting habits of the couple that abandon him to run off with the cute little girl, I wonder how he turned out 16 years later.

Dave - Babies speaking French? I've heard that some have even learned to speak Hindi and Bambara.

That is hilarious, because I actually remember that song coming out! I think I even bought the cassette single, 'cause I thought it was so cheesy/cute! It's hard to be a baby he sang! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

WAT - Well, it is hard to be a baby. Try it sometime, and you'll understand Jordy's point.

i'd say get a room but we're talking about pre-pre-pubescence!

hmmm....You just might be onto something there.

They're pretty much spouting same message, n'est-ce pas?

Mouse - I definitely don't want to go there.

Jason - Finally someone sees what I'm talking about!

Jordy! Holy shit, I forgot all about him and his six year old to be a man ooh la la perversions. Your knowledge of global popular culture is truly praiseworthy. Several of my friends have described me as the world's oldest latchkey kid. I think I should hand that title over to you, mister.

Angry - Would that be a card key? Actually Jordy was a star at 4, alcoholic at 6.
