Friday Fives

What’s the funniest name you’ve heard someone call an object when they couldn’t remember its actual name?

Justin calls everything a ‘goddamnit’ when he can’t think of the word.  For anything.  It’s a noun as he uses it.  Looking for your beer?   A Lama?  Some guitar strings.

What is the funniest movie you have ever watched?

Going deep here, as Princess Bride and Spinal Tap are too easy.  Let’s go with Harold and Maude, and the Jimmy Stewart classic ‘Harvey’.

What is the funniest lie to tell kids?

Adults know what they are doing, and to always trust them.   Especially clowns!

What is the best/funniest recurring joke in a TV series?

There is this very odd easter egg in every episode of SNL.   Whenever they cut to backstage in the halls… for some reason, there is ALWAYS a guy dressed as Abe Lincoln holding a Lama.  It always looks like they are setting up for an upcoming skit… but it never is.  I think it took me ten years to figure this out, and I NEVER miss SNL.

They never call attention to it, either.  They are playing the long game, too.  I bet this has been going on at least 1979,c_limit/snl-eric-idle-llama.gif

What’s your funniest “I’ve made a huge mistake” moment while cooking?

Assuming you could make Paella by adding the ingredients in a Paella.  Some rice, saffron, some seafood, maybe a bunch of clams, too.  Don’t ever do this.  Turns out that making Paella is wildly complex.  It takes hours, and requires VERY specific order.
