Wonderbag and the Missing "T"


Wonderbag is certainly a doughy breadness of skeeze.

His sullen expression, douched out Wonderbread Yankee cap and covert ‘bag hand gesture all represent. And smiling brunette is the guitar solo fusion sunshine of my love.

But this is one of those pics where something remains unanswered.

A vague question not just of how these two came to cohabitate, but an unfinished sentence of permanent open ended story.

It’s like that elusive “T” when Lady Miss Kier of 1991 One Hit Wonder Deee-Lite sings “Groove is in the Heart.” But she drags out the last word of the chorus, so it sounds like harrrr…

Groove is in the harrrrr… aye yaye yaye yaye… Groove is in the harrrrr…

Where does that “t” go? Did the “t” ever exist? Is the hook of the chorus intentionally delaying the gratification of completion? Is the missing “t” simply part of the musical cadence? Or is it a conundrum? A paradox? A closed loop of impossibility?

For years I’ve wondered what happened to the “t” in “heart” during the chorus of that song.

But then Q-Tip raps.

And all is good again.
