Name That Tune

Posted in Bits of Home, Humor on July 12, 2010 by auer83

Quickie Quiz: What famous song has these lyrics?

Well, now, take down your fishin’ pole and meet me at The Fishin’ Hole,
We may not get a bite all day, but don’t you rush away.

What a great place to rest your bones and mighty fine for skippin’ stones,
You’ll feel fresh as a lemonade, a-settin’ in the shade.

Whether it’s hot, whether it’s cool, oh what a spot for whistlin’ like a fool.

What a fine day to take a stroll and wander by The Fishin’ Hole,
I can’t think of a better way to pass the time o’ day.

We’ll have no need to call the roll when we get to The Fishin’ Hole,
There’ll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey, to doodle time away.

If we don’t hook a perch or bass, we’ll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw, and maybe set and jaw.

Hangin’ around, takin’ our ease, watchin’ that hound a-scratchin’ at his fleas.

Come on, take down your fishin’ pole and meet me at The Fishin’ Hole,
I can’t think of a better way to pass the time o’ day.

And now for something completely different: A creepy Russian singing a cowboy song (click here).

Random, eh? Oh yeah?

Viola Fail. And More Fail.

Jim Gaffigan Moment

Posted in Humor on April 21, 2010 by auer83

(Really) Sleepy dialogue this morning:

Frank: I don’t know if you smell what I’m smelling, but something smells really weird in our apartment right now. It’s really smelly. I can’t figure out what that smell is or where that smell coming from.

Shanna: Oh yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s the trash can in the kitchen. See, when I made that skirt steak three nights ago I threw the foam meat packaging tray in the trash can. So that trash has been needing to be taken out for a good couple days now.

Frank: And… ?

Shanna: And… ?

Frank: ….

Shanna: ……………….

Frank: …………………………………..

Shanna: Also, I think the big bag of onions in the kitchen needs to be thrown out. I think they’re getting way too old. They’ve been needed to be thrown out for a week now actually.

Frank: (now very passive aggressively) so uh, were you thinking about doing something about that?

Shanna: Well what am I supposed to do!

And now for a random Jim Gaffigan momen:

Hobbes: How are you doing on your New Year’s resolutions?

Calvin: I didn’t make any. See, in order to improve oneself, one must have some idea of what’s “good” that implies certain values. But as we all know, values are relative. Every system of belief is equally valid and we need to tolerate diversity. Virtue isn’t “better” than vice. It’s just different.

Hobbes: I don’t know if I can tolerate that much tolerance.

Calvin: I refuse to be victimized by notions of virtuous behavior.
