come and visit me over at Fussypants today. She up and went and had herself a fifth baby boy….and was crazy enough to ask me to hold down the fort today. i’m over there talking about my worst break-up ever.

i’ll give you one hint…

also…i’m about to get random on you…but, seriously, what the hell are the words to Yellow Ledbetter?

also…last night as i was trying to fall asleep, i stumbled upon Karate Kid II. now you all know how i feel about the Karate Kid, and you’ve all stood by my while i confessed my sweet the lick/sweep the leg fiasco (i’m a creampuff!) but it’s been ages since i’ve seen Karate Kid II…Danielson takes Okinawa. in the first scene, outside in the parking lot, after Daniel’s big swan-move kick on Johnny Lawrence/Greg Tolan

and dude is all up in Daniel’s face…and then, it happens…the most unintentionally funny thing i have ever seen…some dude walks up to them and says, all serious, in a very Leslie Neilson Naked Gun-ish way “that guyjust doesn’t know what karate is all about” (son? you ever watch movies about gladiators? Joey? have you ever seen a grown man naked?)

i swear. hit the rewind button 100 times. and laughed each time. it was perfect.

you can watch it here. it’s about at the 6:00 minute mark. but don’t say i didn’t warn you. you may pee your pants a little bit (not that i did that or anything. no. uh uh)

now get on over to Mrs. Fussypants‘ and leave me some love!!

  1. It was Peter Graves doing the gladiator line in Airplane. Leslie Neilson played the doctor on the flight.

    I love the Karate Kid movies. I can watch them over and over.

    And you? I would totally fight for you honour.

  6. Watched it too, but I’ll admit…I went to sleep after they got to Okinawa. I asked my husband in a sleep coma, “what happened to Miagi and Danielsan when then got into the warehouse?” His response, “they died.”

    “Yellow Ledbetter”

    Unsealed on a porch a letter sat.
    Then you said, “I wanna leave it again.”
    Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand.
    And on the sand I wanna leave it again. Yeah.
    On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah.
    And they called and I said that “I want what I said” and then I call out again.
    And the reason oughta’ leave her calm, I know.
    I said “I know what I was the boxer or the bag.”

    Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don’t wave.
    I see them round the front way. Yeah.
    And I know, and I know I don’t want to stay.
    Make me cry…

    I see… Oh I don’t know why there’s something else.
    I wanna drum it all away…
    Oh, I said, “I don’t, I don’t know whether I was the boxer or the bag.”

    Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don’t wave.
    But I see them round the front way. Yeah.
    And I know, and I know. I don’t wanna stay at all.
    I don’t wanna stay. Yeah.
    I don’t wanna stay. [x2]
    I don’t… Don’t wanna, oh… Yeah. Ooh… Ohh…

  11. You and I are so different in this way: I RARELY IF EVER watch a movie twice. Unless it’s really great, like Teen Witch…. Or Mr. Magorium’s Emporium….. Or Ratatouille (the last two, I watched MANY times…Monkey made me do it…)
