Ted Turner當年創建24小時新聞頻道CNN時,曾經豪氣干雲地發誓:俺們要一刻不停開機播放,直到世界末日。俺們將會實況轉播末日來臨,然後在'Nearer, My God, to Thee'的伴奏下,告別諸位!

我的媽!這簡直太逗樂兒了。我想象著大家聽說末日來臨,急著趕回家去打開電視看CNN實況的情景。讓世界末日快點來吧!我們都等不及了。真的!

但是'肥婆未唱,好戲還沒完'(It ain't over till the fat lady sings)。一個曾經在CNN實習的小子舉報說,還真有這麼一盤錄像備份在CNN呢,然後他就把一段錄像放到了網上,一個軍樂隊吹奏著Nearer,My God,to Thee,吹得沒滋沒味。這是給全人類奏哀樂,不能振作一些嗎?


英國佬在笑得打跌之餘,當然不會放過調侃美國人的機會。BBC通告全世界徵集末日轉播音樂片段,立刻點中英語文化圈的笑點。

麻省的一位先生建議說,幹嘛不用Turner家華納兄弟LooneyTunes每次結尾的那個小肥豬呢?一陣鬧哄哄的音樂后,小肥豬嬉皮笑臉地嚷嚷著:'Th-th-that's all, folks!' 這個我喜歡!我們都是看著那個節目長大的,聽著讓人挺放心,覺得明天還會來過似的。


但是不約而同來自澳洲、威爾士、以及北方鄰居加拿大的一個建議在英語文化圈中獲得同聲喝彩:Always Look on the Bright Side of Life。這是Monty Python當年那部Life of Brian電影劇終時,釘在十字架上的人們唱的一首歡樂歌曲。

Monty Python's Life of Brian,那可是惡搞經典的經典。我們的主角Brian先生出生在伯利恆的一個馬槽里。那天晚上於是就有三王來賀,朝覲未來的猶太之王。三跪九叩之後,Oops,拜錯人啦!基督是隔壁那家馬棚里那個小屁孩。哈哈哈!但是笑完以後挺悲劇的,Brian總是陰差陽錯被人誤認是彌賽亞,逼著他顯神跡傳達最高指示,不勝其煩哪!可憐的Brian想方設法東躲西藏,信眾們卻總是擺脫不掉,烏央烏央老是追隨著他。這讓領導們看著就很像是他在聚眾鬧事搞動亂,一來二去的,Brian就被判釘了十字架,特沮喪!不過到後來山窮水盡徹底的沒了希望的時候,Brian也就阿Q一回,和架友們一起搖頭晃腦在十字架上唱起了這首Always Look on the Bright Side of Life。知道這首歡樂歌曲的人,比知道《歡樂頌》的,可多多啦!


Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life... 
Always look on the light side of life... 
If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright side of life... 
Always look on the light side of life... 
For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.
So always look on the bright side of death 
Just before you draw your terminal breath 
Life's a piece of sh*t
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life... 
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

幾年前給民主致了悼詞,現在該是給人類唱輓歌的時候了吧?
