Talkin' about "Chet."

The first time I head the expression "sammich" was when a guy was talking about visiting Albert Collins on his tour bus and Albert said, "You want a bite of my sammich?" It's nice that he wanted to share, but I'd never take a bite of another's sammich.
The love or lack thereof of Joe B... and to a lesser extent this quote...
0l fuzzy approves of the complete use of the venerable henway to solve all problems.
That’s pretty funny because it’s true. My dad always blamed Chet Atkins for single handedly ruining country music after he left The Carter Family.
The Carter Family ruined country music by recording it. It was already ruined by the time Chet Atkins ruined it.
Is it too soon to start complaining about all the things they got wrong, or things that were omitted, from Ken Burns' "Country"?
How many peddles do you have?
Yeah, back in the good ol' days, the only recorded music (that we played on our Victrolas) was dancehall stuff and flapper music. Country Music was played on porches and live in dance halls. Those danged Carters ruined Country Music by putting it on records!
Recording music does tend to ruin it I suppose.
Therefore, all recorded music must be bad I guess.
The Beatles would have been just as good with another drummer.
Is getbent talking about me behind my back again?
Why I oughta...
The folks on TGP only wear reliced Custom Shop cargo shorts.
That's the joke. The thread is asking about running jokes on the site, and I picked the one that all modern country music sucks, while trying to illustrate that the haters and detractors have literally always said that modern country music sucked. Ever since the Carter family began recording in the late 30's, purists have bemoaned the fact that recording music ruined it. Therefore, country music has literally (and I mean "literally" in the pre-2014 definition) always been ruined. There's literally (again, pre-2014 definition of "literally) never been a time when country music purists haven't said the music has been ruined in one form or another. There are specific reasons I picked all of the years I did in my original post; each one signalling some sort of paradigm shift or game change in country music, in other words, they weren't just random.
Did I over-explain my post to the point where all humor in it was lost? I can keep going if that's not the case.
No, I think you got it...
