Calvin and I get a lot of our banter from Loony Toons. For instance, when I am gently urged to silence myself, I respond with, “Shut up? Why certainly! You don’t think I’m the type that would keep on blabbin’? Some people never know when to stop. When I’m told to shut up, I shut up…!” Ala this (the part I’m talking about is in the first minute, but by all means, watch the whole thing):
To which Calvin generally responds with, “Shaddap shuttin’ up.”
When I’m getting hassled about something, I respond with, “Stop steamin’ up my tail!” Ala:
I was looking for Knighty Knight Bugs, which features Yosemite Sam calling his dragon a, “crazy, idjit, bedraggled dragon”, which is what I call MY dragons when they’re, oh, pooping in their food dish or something. I couldn’t find it, but I DID find this one, which I figure features in a lot of “discussions” between TB and Dys – “I see you’ve never dealt with a Viking!” Ala this (about two minutes in):
Ah, man, just watching these on YouTube makes me want to buy the box set. I could think of a meeee-leeee-yun other instances in which we unashamedly steal from Bugs. “Rabbit Season! Duck Season!” “Yoiks… and awaaaaay…” “You have won… a million box!” Okay, I’m having way too much fun with this. Which means it’s probably time to stop.
Viva la Friday!
