Hello and Happy Hump Day! Woo-Hoo! And who doesn’t like a good hump? Today’s Viral Video Wednesday has a few new things about it. First, we have a button! WooT! I’ve got a few other pics to turn into buttons, and if you’ve got one, lay it on me! :-) Second, if you look at the bottom of the picture header of this blog, you’ll see a Viral Video Wednesday tab. I’ll be keeping the current week’s VVW there, and you can add your blog in the comments so I can check out your VVW posts, too :-) The third change to VVW is, at the end of my post and on the VVW page, I’ll let you know what the subject of next week’s VVW so you’ll have a week to hunt down some fabulous vid clips for your own VVW posts :-D
And now, on with the vids!
The famous comedian W.C. Fields once said, “Never work with children or animals” and the reason for his sentiment is clear: They will upstage you and steal all the laughs! If you’ve ever tried to have a conversation with the pastor at the carry-in, only to be interrupted by your four-year-old, “Mommy, Pastor Bill does TOO have a watch… See! It’s right there on his arm! Pastor Bill, did you buy that at the dollar store with the $3 Mommy put in the offering last week?” then you KNOW that kids can chime in was some really hilarious stuff every now and then. So this week’s VVW is dedicated to all those darned funny things the little whipper-snappers say!
Poor little Colin suffers from two things endemic to childhood… Like most children, he absolutely adores being the star of the home movies, and he struggles with the correct pronunciation of some words more than others.
I first saw the following video on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” It’s always funny to watch a child when they realize where they’ve gone wrong in a conversation… that little “A-ha” moment when they take one step closer to understanding their world.
The next video brought back memories of my oldest daughter’s trips to the dentist. An utter dentophobic, she had to be given the red liquid sedative (Versed) AND the piggy-nose (nitrous oxide) to get her into the chair, then she had to have a TV headset playing Powerpuff Girls to keep her mind occupied while the dentist did anything inside her mouth. Even routine teeth cleanings could disolve into a puddle of tears on the 5 foot overstuffed Pooh Bear in the waiting room. So I completely understand David’s behavior.
What do you get when have an adorable little boy with big brown eyes telling Knock! Knock! jokes? Well… I have girls, so maybe that’s why I never got this…
And I think I’ll end here with the following video. Before you slip that DVD of Jackass Unlimited into the DVD player, remember that little pitcher sitting next to you is taking it all in, and will recount the whole scene to Pastor Bill at the Mother’s Day after-service dinner a couple weeks from now.
Do you have a favorite kid vid? share it with me in the comments, or better yet, post your own Viral Video Wednesday “Kids Say the Darnedest Things!” at your blog and leave the link in the comments so I can visit!
