Children's Book Day!

Happy Children's Book Day! Betcha don't know these questions about children's books! The winner gets a virtual pat on the back! :D

--Who is Ted Geisel?
--What was the last thing the Hungry Little Caterpillar ate?
--Who are Nancy Drew's two best friends? (Bonus: What's her boyfriend's name?) ;)

Anyway. Today's Words are from the category of Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"Can we just bring in tissues and color them?" Only if they are the cellular type of tissue. Coloring plain old kleenexes gets boring after a while and isn't nearly as rewarding as coloring bodily tissue, if you know what I mean. ...I hope you do, because I certainly don't.

"My yolk has busted." The horror. The horror.

"And, really, it's not your tongue's fault." Oh, I am so glad you have cleared this point up. I thought I was going to need some more tongue counseling, which was getting old. And slimy.

"It's, like, Mr. Radish!" To be precise, it was actually Mrs. Turnip. I don't know where you get these outlandish ideas.

Yad Sdrawkcab Gnihtyreve Epyt!

Hello, all! Happy Type Everything Backwards Day! ...actually, it's Celebrate Flattened Quarters Day. ...just kidding, it's Staples Do Sometimes Attack New York Day. I mean, National Squishy Earlobes Day! .......okay, actually you probably already knew what holiday it really is. Happy April Fool's Day, everyone! :D Feel free to celebrate any of the other made-up holidays, though. :D

Anyway, today's Words are from the Fairly Mean category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"I don't like scraping brains off the carpet and then I have to fill out paperwork." It's inspiring how much you really care.

"[chanting repeatedly] He will eat you at your desk in seconds. He will eat you at your desk in seconds. He will eat you at your desk in seconds." How reassuring.

"Your book sucked like your mom's feet." Okay, again, we do not know how to make proper insults, people! That doesn't even make sense! Did you even attend that insult-making class I signed you up for?

"See? You'd be a good fat guy." There we go, people, this is the true art of the insult. Here, we observe an insulting phrase cleverly disguised as a compliment! Very nice, truly stellar work here. A+.

Hola, que pasa?

Hello, my lovely followers, readers, commenters, aliens, people made of green goo, any of these sound familiar? :) The contest prize has been claimed by Andrew, so congrats again and, to all those who didn't win, do keep an eye out for new contests in future; I'm already planning the next one! :)

Happy 200th Anniversary of Robert Bunsen's birthday! Apparently he helped make the Bunsen burner, which was, or so I'm told, put to good use in some chem classes today through the creation of s'mores. Unfortunately, I am not currently taking a chem class, so I didn't reap any of these Bunsen benefits...luckily there's another holiday for today! It's also National Clams On The Half Shell Day! ...Clam Power! Um...yeah. Really not sure what to do with that. Maybe we should throw clams like confetti! ...ooh, that could get messy.

But anyway. Today's Words are from the Random Roulette Wheel category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"She has, like, udders growing out of her mouth." Um. ...we're leaving it at 'um.'

"Oh, so you don't know what she looks like! That must mean she's invisible!" ...whatever you say, Sherlock.

"Oh my gosh. I'm gonna cut off my bangs. WITH A HACKSAW!" That...seems a little extreme. But whatevs floats your boat.

"Did you just grab my monkey?" Ah, a question for the ages.

Happy Something On A Stick Day!

Happy Something On A Stick Day! ....must go get marshmallows, peanut butter, and other stuff that I can combine to make a delicious...something...on a stick! Mmmm. I love this holiday!

Anyway, today's Words are from the Rather Duh-Inspiring category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

Person 1: "I always forget what it's called so I call it a kabob."
Person 2: "Isn't a kabob, like, a shish kabob?" Very astute of you, gentlemen.

"You know when you have, like, a trash can?"

Person 1: "What's that?"
Person 2: "It looks like an owl!"
Person 3: "That's Grandpa." But really, what's the difference?

"Old was, like, um, from two weeks ago." New is the new old. If ya know what I mean.
