Muppets + 6 y.o. boy = ROTFL (Read 731 times)


Needs more cowbell!

    We have the entire first season of the Muppets on DVD. Honestly, there is NOTHING funnier than watching my son watch the Swedish Chef...mmm...bort bort bort! The kid was laughing so hard he had tears streaming down his cheeks! Big grin k

      Yeah, we do as well. Jack is not quite 2 and he thinks it's funny too, but I can't wait until he's older and gets the verbal humor. We'll sit and watch it together just like my dad and I used to every Tuesday night when I was a kid. It's a real bummer that he'll never know his pop-pop.

        Oh, that is so sad. My son just lost his grandpa (my FIL) in Nov. to cancer. He's old enough that he should always have some memories of his grandpa. I'm so sorry that your little guy won't likely remember your dad. You'll have to make sure that you tell him lots of great stories and share photos with him. k

          Wow, this happy thread quickly turned sad but I have to say very sorry to both zoom-zoom and johnnypebs. Keep those memories alive!

          On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

            Damn, I'm sorry... I was posted this at work and as such, didn't really put a lot of thought into that. I didn't mean to depress everybody. To compensate, everybody name your favorite muppet and why. Mine was Fozzy, because all his jokes were so great. Of course, I was 7 or 8 and didn't really realize that they were supposed to be bad jokes. Probably why I laugh at all the lame jokes my wife just shakes her head at. Big grin

              Oh, you didn't bring it down...I'm glad to hear that the Muppets have made fond memories for you to share with your little one. I'll bet you make some new ones, too! Smile My favorite Muppet...hmmm...I think it's a tie between the Swedish Chef (I'm at least 1/4 Swede, myself) and Gonzo. Big grin k

                Yeah, I think that's what I was going for; but like I said, I was at work and a bit rushed. Thanks for reading my mind there, zoom-zoom. Big grin

                  Think I'm the downer. Sorry. My favs are Statler & Waldorf, the dudes in the balcony. "Why do we always come here? I guess we'll never know. It's kind of like a torture to have to watch the show."

                        After Statler and Waldorf, my next favorite Muppet is John Denver. I mean, he was on there all the time! Tongue

                          LOL... I think that my all time favorite episode had to be the Alice Cooper episode. I mean, how cool is that? One of the masters of shock rock, doing the Muppet Show. Just goes to show just how hip Jim Henson was.

                                Close. The best "12 days" of all time is Bob and Doug MacKenzie of "Strange Brew" fame, eh? On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Eight comic books Seven packs of smokes Six packs of two-fours Five golden toques Four pounds of back bacon Three french toasts Two turtlenecks And a beer in a tree
