I've been tagged!

I was tagged by KimmyK

1.) Hum a jingle of which you know all the words.
"...fat kids, skinny kids, even kids with chicken pox love hot dogs, Armour hot dogs, the dogs kids love to bite!" How un-PC is that one!
2.) As a kid, you played a board game over and over. And you cheated you little bastard. What was the game? I'm obviously repressing this memory due to the shame that I am trying not to admit to.
3.) What is the name of the song that you have been singing the incorrect words all these years? What were you singing? What should you have been singing?My problem is not getting the wrong words, it's getting the words in the wrong order, I'm a dyslexic singer.
4.) What is the most embarrassing childhood story that your parents drag out just to f**k with you for their own private amusement. You must understand, it takes alot to embarrass me, especially since Katie has been born. My most embarrassing memory is when I was Katie's age or younger and went to my grandparent's house with my parents. My grandparents had a bunch of people over and they were all sitting around in a big circle talking. I got in the middle of the circle and started dancing/performing (no I have no idea where Katie gets it!). Everyone was amused but my Dad decided it was time for the show to end and asked me to stop... at which point I told him to "shut up". I have no recollection of what happened after that. I have erased it from my memory. If this isn't good enough, I'm sure my Dad will come up with something better.

I love your information it was all really interesting to read...but your repressed memory reminds me of "pleading the fifth" are you sure you don't remember those things...LOL

I feel I know you a little better after that...:\

loveabulls said...

So what do I do now that I have been tagged...?

Have you ever read Dave Barry's "Book of Bad Songs"? There's a hysterical chapter on "Songs people get wrong". The effect is cumulative: after a few, it gets to be pee-yourself funny.

A couple of mine personal ones, which may or may not be in the book: "Blinded by the light, dressed up like a douche [something] roll her in the night..." (This canNOT be right.)

"She's so POP-u-lar." Except of course, it's "Jeux sans frontiers." Only took me ten years to find that out.

man i would have eaten myself sick at baskin and robbins. that cheesecake ice cream? yum!

i laughed out loud at your memory. sorry. still laughin at that one.

Mary said...

Loveabulls - copy the questions (copy/paste) into a new post on your blog. (I copied everything and then deleted the answers that were already there.) If there's a better way to do that I'm not sure what it is.

"The other Mary" - two GREAT examples. I had forgotten those. I know, I say douche too - really need to look up those lyrics. Could it be dutchman?

Kimmy, no need to apologize for the laughter, I'm sure I deserve it.
