    Lol :) I have no idea what they are talking about. I had to look this up because I couldn't make out what they were saying. Stranger even still I thought this was rem lol. The actual lyrics make more sense than the ones I thought I heard.
    I guess the best advise the guy could give in the end was to eat the chicken slow so 'dude' wouldn't die choking on one of those little bones. Time ticks on for everyone. Best you can do for now is eat the chicken slow so you live to see another day.

    This song was written when the tragically hip were down in New Orleans. They were at a restaurant and the waiter said: "better eat that chicken slow its full of all them little bones." I believe that's also when the tragically hip wrote New Orleans is sinking but that was long before it actually sunk!
