Solid Potato Salad



This little clip is so much more than it may seem at first. These ladies are the real deal, a triple threat as they say in show business. They can sing, dance and sit on their own heads. There's just not enough of that in the world today.

Watch past the one minute mark to get to the really good stuff. Pay special attention at 1:33 into the film. That's
just not right amazing. And can anyone tell me, what exactly is "solid potato salad" and who would eat such a thing?

thanks to Valerie F. for finding this gem

There is obviously not a lot of potato salad (solid or otherwise) in their lives!!

In the 1940s the term "solid" was a young hipster's term for "excellent" or something to that effect.



Some people like their taters Lyonnais, some prefer French fries.
I prefer mine with mayonnaise, cole slaw on the side.

Solid potato salad, that’s solid salad, Jack,
Solid potato salad, boy, take a plate, fill it up, bring it right back.

Solid potato salad, and let’s have no Yak Yak

The farmer said to the spud, your skin looks slightly pallid,
So I’ll dig you later bud, with some solid …potato salad.

The forebears to Cirque de Soleil?

I had to sit up straighter and tighten my stomach muscles watching that! All I could think of was their spines. %-}

Those Chinese acrobats have nothin' on these gals!

I'm still a little confused about just why they sang that particular song?! :-)
