I Was Banned in the E-T-H-I-O-P-I-A

You are supposed to sing that title to the tune of either “Born in the U.S.A.” or “Banned in the U.S.A.” depending on which one you think is funnier.

Either way, my friend Mark (I still haven’t been able to figure out why he is wrestling a donkey in that picture) is currently working on shooting a movie somewhere outside of Addis Ababa, and he says that the Ethiopian government has banned Sarah and the Goon Squad.

I feel like such a bad ass.

  1. You’re such a bad girl. Can I touch you?

    tee hee…I crack myself up.

  2. It’s probably all that perverted talk about the guy from the Wiggles.

  3. I think the Doodlebops without make-up may have done the trick.

  4. Once again, Ethiopia has proven itself ahead of the curve in stamping out internet smut. I think it was the pictures of drunk women, some of whom may now be pregnant.

  5. I have been banned from singing “Born in the USA” ’cause I wasn’t.. :(

  6. You are such a badass.

  7. I wanna be banned. How do I get banned? Are the cool kids are doing it, right???

  8. They’d ban me, but I’m WAY too far underground.
    I keep my game on the DL.

  9. Why have you been banned in Ethiopia of all places? And no offense, but there are literally MILLIONS of blogs, how did the Ethiopian government find yours?

  10. My guess is that a lot of us are banned and we just didn’t know it.

  11. Huh. And up to this point, I thought I was badass because I’d been banned from the Boise Public School System.

    You win.

  12. I’m sure they wouldn’t like Look Busy since I’m fairly certain my stuff doesn’t jive with Jesus coming and all. What an honor though, how many people can say they are banned by a country? Very cool.

  13. oooh, I’m so jealous! I’ve always wanted to be banned!

  14. Congratulations!

  15. Now you can officially change the title of your blog to “2 Live Crew”. Can I call you Sarah Skywalker?

  16. For Ethiopian related news and information, the best site I find is the Ethiopian Portal,


  17. I want to be banned too!!! Ask your friend for the official list.

  18. Clearly, it’s your stance in support of the islamic warlords who have been ruling neighboring Somalia. Your attempts to stir up resistance to the Ethiopian counter-insurgency have been interpreted as an act of war.

    Of perhaps the word “SATGS” in Ethiopian means “poopy.

  19. Only the really good blogs get banned in Ethiopia!
