Dadgummit Dusty Slay…

There’s nothing worse than someone coming along and ruining a song. Whether it’s finding something out about it was written, mis-hearing a lyrics than will never leave your mind, or whatever. But this might be the biggest mind f*ck I’ve heard since I found out that Tracy Lawrence was singing about a lake house instead of Birmingham, Alabama, in “Paint Me A Birmingham.”

And it’s about the best beer drinking song on this planet… “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.

However, I will admit this nitpick from Slay has the wheels turning in my brain a bit.

For those who aren’t too familiar with Slay, he’s a good ol’ boy comedian that loves to make redneck jokes, he loves country music, and he’s even had the chance to hangout with the likes of Jamey Johnson and Lori Morgan at the Grand Ole Opry.

With that being said, he hilariously pointed out a small problem with “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” at one of his shows…

He said:

“I do like that song ‘It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere’ though, there’s a line in the chorus where he says ‘It’s only half past 12,’ that’s 12:30, just to be clear, he said ‘It’s only half past 12, but I don’t care, it’s 5 O’Clock somewhere.’ 

That’s not true. You know what I mean…

Mind blown…

I mean, I know it’s a joke… but the man has a point. A hilarious observation that only a great standup could make.

And of course, we still have to play the song:
