It is a far, far better thing it is to sing to oneself in the shower, or even perhaps, after having had a few cocktails and singing karaoke.

I remember I used to frequent a restaurant in Bordentown that featured a karaoke setup on Saturday nights.

So one night I decided to try my hand at “Patches” by Clarence Carter.

Not bad, but no one was about to sign me to a record deal anytime soon.

Some other dudes got up to sing Toby Keith songs, and did really well.
Toby Keith songs go over very well in a bar setting in Bordentown apparently.

The hit of the night was a dude who dubbed himself the “King of Karaoke!” Unfortunately though for the rest of us there that evening, the “King of Karaoke," was anything but! Regardless of his talent level,  he was there every week they had the karaoke and each and every time he’d go up, they’d call him the “King of Karaoke!”

Some performances should be left to either the shower, or perhaps karaoke where you basically have a license to sing bad.

An American Airlines jet headed to Kennedy Airport from LA was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City after a woman refused to stop belting out Whitney Houston's "I will always love you."

The woman's off-key rendition of the ditty's famous chorus, captured forever on a passenger's cellphone video, is heard as police escort her off the flight.

A female airline staffer can be heard in the video pleading with passengers not to take photos.

"The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew," airport spokesman Joe McBride told WCTV Friday. "There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane."

The woman, who claimed she was a diabetic, was not charged but the airline refused to allow her back on a flight.

Can’t really blame them, can you?

However one has to wonder if she’d pull that same trick off on a bus.
Maybe, if she was on a bus, with her penchant for singing, maybe she would've broken out into a version of the classic “Double Dutch Bus?"
