Take This Job and Shove It – Dedicated to Gabrielle Duprey

A lot of people think this song was written for that movie where Ted Striker drives Bigfoot through a brewery, but in fact the movie was inspired by the song, which was a thing they did in the 1970‘s, because a movie based on Pong would suck.

Today is Gabrielle‘s birthday and I picked this song for her because when we last spoke a couple of weeks ago, she told me that she had to quit her fast food job because, long story short, the boss was hassling her over some bullshit. This week Gabrielle started a culinary course, so I’m proud of her for having the confidence to stand up for herself, be who she is and move on to bigger and better things.

I don’t know what show the video embedded below was recorded for, but I love how Johnny Paycheck looks like The Southern Gandalf. Happy Birthday Gabby!
