Provoking Wang Chung?

Well .
Since this my THIRD blog I've created, and the only one I decided to actually write on,
I guess I'll stick with this one.
(Yes I sound like a virtual scared-y cat , I know.)

Let me start with the definition of provoke.
I just like this word.


[pruh-vohk] Show IPA
–verb (used with object),-voked, -vok·ing.
to anger, enrage, exasperate, or vex.
to stir up, arouse, or call forth (feelings, desires, or activity): The mishap provoked a hearty laugh.
to incite or stimulate (a person, animal, etc.) to action.
to give rise to, induce, or bring about: What could have provoked such an incident?
Obsolete. to summon.


Now you know that classis 80's song " Everybody Have Fun Tonight " by Wang Chung.
Well that lyric ---- " Everybody have fun tonight, Everybody Wang Chung tonight ."

Gets stuck in my head . Just that one part.

So ,while working at The People's Church walking around the office, I swing my arms over my head and, I personally think I'm in some kind of movie like ' 13 Going on 30 ' going along my day, wang chunging.

So I guess while I was swinging my arms over my head going about my day singing
' Wang Chung ' around the "holy ground " raises eyebrows and sounds like a ' Naughty ' word
'Everybody wang chung tonight' hmm. yeah. ok ok ,here's the definition.

Main Entry: wang chung
Part of Speech: v
Definition: go out socially and have fun
Example: Everybody wang chung tonight.
Etymology: 1983; fr the band Wang Chung and its song "Everybody Have Fun Tonight"
Usage: slang

Aha! As you can see why I love the meaning of Wang Chung.
I gladly told my co-workers Wang Chung is NOT a body part, nor.. well you get the point.
My fascination with the word Provoke and just Provoking others in general,
and Wang Chung making me laugh and the definition being well, killer.

I decided today, We need some more Wang Chung in the church .

I mean what a cool sermon title?!
' Everybody Wang Chung Tonight '

hello virtual world of my mental explosions.

SO For my first blog ever ...going by ' Provoking Wang Chung '

That's precisley what I want to do.

Smile, Enjoy Today.

Everybody Wang Chung Tonight.
