Friday Fill-Ins ~ Anarchists, Carnies and Skanks, Oh My!

ffi

And…here we go!

1. The first rule of working in an office and getting along is establish dominance by drinking the last dribble of coffee, eating the food brought in by co-workers and leaving fresh-from-the-litter-pan-presents in the bosses dark-colored chair every morning.  Then whenever anyone expresses their displeasure, relay the passage you read in your copy of The Anarchist Cookbook last night while cleaning one of your many assault rifles and planning the next meeting with your lawyer to finalize the settlement with your last employer.

2. I once gave my kids “sea mushrooms” for supper, but really they were canned clams. (It was a punishment, btw, for ditching the school bus and trying to skip school.  It worked so well, they’ve never tried to skip since.)
 
3. When I think of carnivals I think of cotton candy, popcorn, candy apples and crazy-looking, inbred and toothless pedophiles running the controls on the Himalaya and taking tickets at the Fun House.

4. Lilacs are my favorite spring flower.

5. Things on my desk include an open box of Whoppers, a 2 liter of Diet Coke, a new box of Stridex, Maggie’s homework that she’s standing here waiting for help on, Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank (I just finished writing the review for it), a half-empty bag of Cheesy Poofs, and the little fliers about our town that I picked up from the city building (I put them in the books I send out from BookMooch).

6. The gas company and the gov’tal bureaucracy makes me wanna go postal then go survivalist… better yet, let’s go “Fight Club” on them!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to taking the kids to the new skating rink that’s suppose to be Chuck E. Cheese meets SkateWorld and is probably priced like Disney World, tomorrow my plans include taking Maggie the old skating rink for her friend’s b-day party and trying to get as much of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet read as possible  and Sunday, I want to enjoy a nice Sunday Service and grab the Kleenex while Mags and Gwen get baptized at our new church!

Viral Video Wednesday – Pork’n’ Beans

This week’s Viral Video Wednesday was inspired by Bermudaonion’s link in last week’s comments.

It’s amazing how many of us have seen the same videos… many of those videos we seem to not even remember ever watching, but we know them. It’s been a fun week finding the vids for this week, too. Some of them I’d never seen or heard of, which made me feel a bit stupid like “OMG! What rock have I been under? How did I miss this!” But most of them I knew. Some of them are my new favorites, AND my kids are getting into helping me find new videos… particularly my 15-year-old who has definitely ruined me on a couple of these. AND we are all still singing Numa Numa here (of course, my children are still playing them and finding new ones).

So, on to the vids:

Today’s VVW is a fun puzzle… What do the following videos have in common?

Remember Gary from last week? He’s back this week for a second appearance! Will we ever get away from him, really? it is Viral Video Wednesday, after all!

The suspense-building LOOK from a Prairie Dog:

When showing off your Ninja moves, make sure they didn’t wax-on the floor last night:

Mad scientist at play in a field with Diet Coke (we actually did this at home, and the kids tried the soda afterwards… it tasted nasty!):

Warning! Mentally unstable Britney-crazed fan who lost his meds (R-rated for language) Say it with me, “Leave Britney Alone!!!“:

I personally believe some-uh.. like such as and the Iraq and such as… HUH?:

The funniest 6 minutes you will ever see! Remember how many of these you have done! (I just totally ripped off the “more info” on the site):

Chocolate Rain! *breathe* made me lots of money from Dr. P *breathe*:

You know, there will be an entire VVW dedicate to this video in the future… but today, it’s simply a piece of the puzzle:

Weird, hypnotic… a bit of a WTF… but all the same, a piece right in the middle of our puzzle:

Quite possibly one of the most disturbing… not to mention addictive… videos I’ve ever seen (Warning: R-rated for some language):

The number one most obnoxious video ever made. It makes me want to shove pencils into my ears all the way to the erasers! (Warning: more than 20 seconds can cause psychotic episodes):

ROFLMAO… never saw this one before, but thought it fit… consider it a clue:

And the last piece of the puzzle… “Charlie! Wake up you silly sleepy-head!” ( 😀 ):

Now, put all these pieces together and you get the following Weezer’s Pork ‘n’ Beans video:


 

One of the many things I love about Weezer’s video is that a lot of the viral vids are of people who have really been ripped up by commenters, fellow video-makers, comedians and Talk show hosts, etc. Now, I’m not feeling sorry for them… many of them got spots on National television, record deals, and even a spot on a Weezer video. 😀 But in this video they get a chance to thumb their collective nose at their critics. I like that.

Now, I know there are TONS! of viral videos that I missed, the video is so full of them that I couldn’t name them all. So here’s your chance to post the missing ones, either here in the comment section or… even better… on your own blog as your own VVW post 😉

I leave you with this Numa Numa – South Park Style video Sammi, my 15-year-old, found:
