In this part of Missouri, we have a saying.
Whenever anything bad happens and it defies all reason
We throw our hands up to the sky and sing
Hassa Diga Chakai!

Private Jet Owner: Hassa Diga Chakai?

Look, in these troubled times, sometimes having a saying can make it all seem better.  There's War.  (Yells of Libya! Yemen!  Iraq! from the chorus).   Famine!   Destruction!  
Sometimes you just have to throw your head back and sing..

There isn't enough food to eat.
Hasa Diga Chakai!
People are starving in the street.
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!

Jet Owner:  Hey!  That's pretty sweet!
Trust Fund Manager: So, what's this whole street music thing about?  Like good luck?
Throng: KIND OF!

We've had too much heat for several days. (Hasa Diga Chakai!)
And eighty percent of may not get Paid!. (Hasa Diga Chakai!)
Many benefits here were exorcised,
Their funds get cut right off. (Way oh!)
And so we say up to the sky
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!

Now you try. Just stand up tall, tilt your head to the sky, and list all the bad things in YOUR life.

JO#1:  OK!  
Someone took my box seats away!   Hasa Diga Chakai!

Public Planes are crowded and they all run late!   Hasa Diga Chakai!

When the world is getting you down,
There's nobody else to blame. (Way oh!)
Raise a middle finger to the east,
And curse their rotten name.

JO#1: Wait, what?

Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Wait, am I saying that right?

Excuse me, sir, but what EXACTLY does that phrase mean?

Well, let's see...'Chakai' is a Tea Party, and 'Hasa Diga' means 'FUCK YOU'. So I guess in English it would be, "Fuck you, Tea Party!"

Hasa Diga Chakai!

When (Insert Name) fucks you in the butt. (Hasa Diga Chakai!)
Fuck  (Insert Name) back right in his cunt. (Hasa Diga Chakai!)

Hasa Diga Chakai!
Hasa Diga Chakai!


Excuse me, sir, but you should really not be saying that. Things aren't always as bad as they seem.

R:  Really?  Take a look at this asshole over here.  Last week they got caught trying to steal food from babies!

JO#1: Why?

R:  Well, some people in his cult believe that the only way to cure things is to not spend.  But there are fewer things to cut.  So, they've turned to stealing from the poor..


That's Horrible!


Here's the bucher, he can't get PAID.
Here's the teacher, she wont' get PAID.
Here's the doctor, he won't get PAID –
Here's my daughter she has A...
...College Education...
She's all I have left in the world.
And if either of you won't get a hand to her.. –
She'll go broke on Student AID!.

If you don't like what we say
Try watching this a couple days.
Watch all your friends and family cry.
Hasa Diga Chakai!
Fuck you!

Hasa Diga Chakai!!
Fuck you, All, in the **

Ok, you get the point.. Laugh a little.  It's so preposterous.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
