Sound Advice

This week instead of the usual cartoon hilarity, I offer you my loyal readers, a solution to one of Life's bothersome occurrences. This is my way of saying "thank you" for dropping by BuckToonz each week.
Fixing a hole where a song came in...
We all experience the following problem. You're going about your daily business when suddenly, a song gets stuck in your head. And I mean really stuck, as in it just keeps repeating itself over and over with no end in sight. Ironically, it's usually not a song that we enjoy hearing either. It's never a tune that's cool or fun. Often times it's some Pop drivel, or a stupid commercial jingle from the radio or TV. Try as we might, we cannot rid ourselves of this endlessly looping song. We know it will eventually come to a stop but probably not before causing us, irritation, distraction, and/or distress. This can become torturous as when trying to fall asleep at night. Some psychologists have referred to this phenomena as an "Ear Worm" which implies that you are dealing with some sort of dangerous parasite. I prefer to call it the "Annoying Song Syndrome"  or A.S.S. for short. There is no known cure for A.S.S. -- until now. I will show you a proven method to quickly and effectively soothe your next A.S.S. attack, and you will no longer be doomed to just ride it out.
If you feel an A.S.S. attack coming on-- don't panic, just simply follow this One Easy Step. Think of a song or melody that you dearly love and always makes you happy when you hear it. It can be anything at all but it is important to choose a song that you never get tired of hearing. Let's refer to this as our "default song".  During your next A.S.S. attack, keep your cool and begin to mentally repeat your default song over and over until it completely overrides and cancels out the annoying song. What you're doing is giving your brain something more pleasurable to fixate upon. This does take some practice and persistence, but don't let that put you off. This method works and once mastered, you will be able to effectively eliminate all future A.S.S. attacks. You will be the master of your domain, and mental harmony shall be yours once again.
Send me your success stories and I will post them here.
