Insight into the madness that is my household

This awesome commercial has been out a while, but it will be legendary in my house for decades to come. Not a week goes by we don't quote something from it. That and lyrics from random 80's rap songs and the quotes by the dead terrorist. Yeah, we're weird. At any rate, enjoy!

my favorite line is kumquat. I like to call people random fruits. OK not really but I think I should start that trend you cherimoya.

Wendy said...

Who are you callin' a cherimoya, Stinky McStinkface?

Marni said...

Plantain you, pomegranate!

katdish said...

Doo-doo head cootie queen.

I love that commercial...

Helen said...

Wendy, don't go listening to lint likking guava headed cootie king.

Helen said...

OH MY!! Look Marni, you got more comments in less than ten minutes than my king Solomon post EVER did....

katdish said...

Maybe we could beat the cremation post!

Helen said...

Katdish, I dunno...without Beth and Sherri, this doesn't have the same potential. We need Sherri to throw in a few typos, and Beth to pretend she is flabbergasted by how far we have taken this....
Do you think we could get some of our twitter friends to help? Someone to play Sherri, someone else to play Beth? (BTW, I'm thinking one of the girls here. Jason, Billy, and Peter can all just be themselves...)

SarahBeeCreations said...

What the French, toast? We don't have this ad out here yet. Too bad, lol.

Helen said...

Sarah, do you think you could resend that with a few typos in it. Katdish will explain...

Buddy Love said...

Well, I'm willing to do my part, since I'm just sitting here being useless anyway...

Marni said...

Jeff, that's because this is a shallow posting. We ALWAYS respond well to those ;-) take it as a compliment that your post was smart and compelling.

And beating the cremation post? Can't be done I tell ya. That one needs a Hall of Fame entry somewhere.

Marni said...

Sarah, that "what the french, toast?" is the most quoted between me and my hubs. Our kitchen flooded two weeks ago. Warped the wood floors and everything. I wanted to drop F bombs like it was Hiroshima. But thanks to this commercial, I managed to say that instead and maintain my genteel, Southern, lady-like status. SNORT.

Buddy, you're not useless. You're just made to feel that way since your mom humiliates you with dog costumes. In our house, we feel that's just wrong. I pray for you every day...even though I don't like dogs.

Nick the Geek said...

Good gravy there's some serious star fruits in here.

Nick the Geek said...

Sherri, you better go gets some orbit gum and clean up tht mouth of yours.

Sherri said...

Oh, wait. I meant

eodkllkuoe asdorekl;l ???

Sory.

Beth said...

I am flabbergasted that you have taken this post this far! You dirty bananas! Oh...just...growl monkies.

Bridget Chumbley said...

Fabulous...

My son texts people with WTFT (What the French Toast)... maybe I shouldn't admit I let him do that, but it is pretty funny!

Helen said...

Bridget, I'm not sure you should, either. A youngin' him should be limited to toast. What the toast! WTT for short.

SNORT!!

katdish said...

Hey Beth!

Go read my blog. It's delightful!

Note to self: Do not check the "Email follow-up comments" box, or you will get all of these comments twice.

Don't anybody be cussin' with my pomegranates.

Is that spokeslady related to Peter? They sound an awful lot alike.

Helen said...

Katdish, double the pleasure, double the fun?

We did start off with gum, didn't we?

Helen said...

Candy, POMEGRANITES! That's it. I kept wanting to call Nick a persimmon, and thought "No, that can't be right. And it sounds racist...)

katdish said...

Helen,

Yes. We did. But I think perhaps you are confusing the metaphor. Or maybe the commercial.

But I like to use terms like "confusing the metaphor" because it makes me sound writerly.

Helen said...

Katdish, yeah, I think that's a horse of a different feather...

katdish said...

Helen -

Snort!

Lucky at the Bridge said...

@BuddyLove I was useless & my pawrents dressed me in a Santa hat. They thought it was funny, like I was really going to BOL at that one. So I left them my gifts & look where it got me. Be very afraid.

Robin Arnold said...

Help me here, is that "Tickle you, Kumquat" or "Fickle you, Kumquat" or "Pickle you, Kumquat?" I've listened at least 37 times just now and can't tell.

I feel this right here was worth breaking my technology fast for the morning. I'm going to go chew gum now.

Jewda said...

Hey, Marni, I didn't say anything yet, but thank you for wrongly implying that my posts are smart and compelling.

This is one of my favorite commercials. Growing up Baptist, I always had to come up with creative ways of denigrating people. I wasn't allowed to take the easy out and swear.

Jewda said...

Helen, I think I will start calling people persimmons, at the risk of sounding like a racist.

sandra said...

My brothers and I love this commercial. They took it off the air for a while and just brought it back (we're in IL), we couldn't be happier. It's the little things, you know.

'You son of a biscuit eating bulldog!' hahahaha

Nick the Geek said...

Candy, you're a pomegranate. On the upside I like them so it's not all that bad.

Sherri said...

Nick,
