Abbasolution

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ab ba so loo shun

Sentence: After the competition met their "Waterloo" at Eurovision, ABBA became a cult religion that has lasted over 30 years. Yes, ABBAcadaABBAra! and the faith ABBAsolution was Bjorn, where new followers say "I do, I do, I do, I do, I do", to it everyday. The group's, "I have a Dream" became mantra for others as well. It's "The Name of the Game" that many ordinary people take sABBAticals and ABBAdicate their responsibilities to become "Super Troupers", spending all their "Money, Money, Money" on music, paraphanalia and tickets. (I mean "Does Your Mother Know?") One of the Bennyfits of this faith, is that you can "Take A Chance On Me" and meet some "Fernando" or "Chiquitita" who will say: "Lay All Your Love On Me" and make you a "Dancing Queen" after you belt out that fine old hymm (him?)..."Gimme, Gimme, Gimme A Man After Midnight!" "Knowing Me, Knowing You" it's the best they can do, because they do not believe in ABBAstinence. "Mamma Mia", this ABBAsolution has spread from ABBArdeen to Addis ABBAba to ABBAsynnia and even ABBAtibi, Quebec ("Voulez-Vous?"). The ABBApeal is mAgnethic to devotees Anna-Frieda to join in. Instead of saying Amen...fans say, "Thank You For The Music!" and "SOS"...Save Our Souls, ABBAsolutely!)

Etymology: ABBA - Famous Swedish Foursome (Agnetha,Bjorn,Benny & Anna-Frieda) who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 and released their first album in 1975 and went on to top the pop charts for years, only to have had recent revivals of new generations of fans since the release of Mamma Mia, the stage and movie musical) & Absolution (forgiveness;formal redemption as a religious act in the sacrament of the penance) & Solution (a set of values;a statement that solves a problem or finds answers)

once again - a great sentence - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-19: 11:53:00

it could have been better, but i was pressed for time with a project here... - jadenguy, 2007-06-19: 12:29:00

And for his next feat, jadenguy went on to prove that black is white and white is black before getting run over at the next zebra crossing. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:00:00

Having read THHGttG as a kid in the U.S., it took me several years before I realized that a "zebra crossing" was the same thing as a crosswalk. I also thought that Arthur Dent had been forced to wander into the basement of the planning office carrying a fire-burning "torch" as opposed to an electric one (a flashlight). - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:03:00
