I should grow up

I just saw a commercial for the ROTO WRENCH

"Even removes badly rusted nuts"

I laughed for about fifteen minutes.

Hey, you've gotta appreciate the comic gold wherever you may find it!

Ouch! Which would be more painful I wonder, the rusting of the nuts or the removal?

In my anatomy class we have to do oral exams over the bones, muscles and such. (we see where this is going, don't we?)I TRULY wish the 70 yr old professor would quit saying "If your ready you can come up here and give me your oral".

I guess better the nuts than the bolt.

OK, lesson learned. Put coffee DOWN before reading blog. Not fun otherwise.

Hee hee hee

A long time ago in the day of the dinosaur there was something--commercial or part of a TV show or what, I don't remember--but a squirrel ran up the leg of this guy's pants and my brother started rolling around laughing his ass off. And I said, "What's so funny?" I think I was like 14 and he was 12 so maybe it was around 1968ish.

Yeah, now I get it. Hee hee hee

Yes, and you, famous actor just gave them more publicity. Whoever they hired to write that deserves a raise.

Bananaoracle said...

Well what's not funny about rusted nuts?

Oh right, hemroids...

Laughter is good for the soul and unexpected laughter is the best of all.

Heather said...

What do you put on badly rusted nuts? KY Jelly?

That cracks me up, and remind me of a similar thing from when We used to have a jewellery store years ago in Auckland, New Zealand which had these booths customers would get taken into to look at all the expensive rings etc.

On the radio we had this ad running, totally not realising the hidden meaning until many years later ....

"Come into (Store Name) Jewellers and pick your ring in private"

I'm not sure that you'll ever read this, but I thought it would be worth a shot.

I'm going to be in Hawaii next September & although I've been there a few times, I'd love to know from a local perspective, where to go, what to see, what to do, where to eat (best plate lunch?), etc...I'll be 2 days on Oahu & then about a day or so each on Kauai & Maui & 2 days on the big island (Hilo & Kona).

Thanks for any suggestions!
& love reading your posts!

I don´t mean to be rude but i am using this space to say something i wanna say since the end of the II LOST serie: i want Jack to die. I mean, in the script. Nothing wrong with the actor.
I am tired to see that LOST is just about him, his life and his decisions. He is stucking the whole story.
Sorry but i wanted to be say it out loud.

Don't worry, man.
I'm 40 and still laugh at "some side effects include oily discharge".

So, apparently I am several months behind just finding this blog in FEBRUARY, so I dont know if you will see this but I have to tell you...

I am 33 and have the same exact problem. My 11 month old wants to watch this 10 minute "Elmo's world" over and over and it is all about BALLS. Every time Elmo says, "Dorothy's been thinking about balls too!" I fall out. Lame, I know.

holy crap. i laughed for about 15 minutes even before i read that you'd written "i laughed for about 15 minutes."

badly rusted nuts.

almost as good as "badly rusted nuts" is true north's commercial and their tagline "an extraordinary nut snack" which i ALWAYS hear as "extraordinary nut sack."

i LIVE for that commercial.

"that's what she said"

I just found your blog and I must say, I'm enjoying it tremendously.
Now, when I saw the RotoWrench commercial, my immediate thought was, "Hey...something
that would fix bad screws - that would've been cheaper than my
divorce." (I guess I should grow up, too...except I'm already old enough
to be your mother.)
