Learn all of the words to "Devil Went Down to Georgia"??? LOL!!!

however, when you do learn them, please explain the chicken in the bread pan (if that's even the right words) part to me!

LOVE your lists! Very funny and intersting! I think I am gonna have to start saying "bat-shit crazy" it has a nice ring to it! LOL I'll have to pick just the right moment to say it for the first time to really get the full effect! ;)
