My son told me today that he wants this to be my ringtone on his phone for when I call him…
I have no idea what it has to do with My Little Pony, “bronies”, muffins or any of that… my formal opinion of those things are… low. And that junk has never been played in this house – ever.
But the song is pretty funny…

Hmm, my 14 yo daughter chose “Stranglehold” for mine.
Something about the look on the boys faces.May 11, 2015 at 12:45 am #40914
My son and I cut up pretty regularly… laughing helps cope with how crappy the world has become. He is also only 14, but is cut from the same cloth as all the males of our family are.
Though he can be unintentionally hilarious and very much accidentally cool, the above derp song is just his way of picking on me….
Now I have to find something worse than the above and make it his ringtone… maybe something by ABBA… “Dancing Queen” comes to mind…. heh heh…

Punish him Malgus. The Mom Song over and over and over ….. Until he repents.May 12, 2015 at 11:18 am #40956
Punish him Malgus. The Mom Song over and over and over ….. Until he repents.
Oh, he won’t “repent”… he’s cut from the same cloth as all the males in our family. Stubborn to a fault. This will keep escalating until one of us uses “The Nuclear Option”… what that might be, neither one of us knows..
Then the cycle will repeat…
I’m notorious for playing the long game. Example: One night several years ago, I was out on the porch having a smoke after everyone went to bed. I had to pee, so I whizzed off the porch. We live in the middle of nowhere, right? No bigs.
Well, that accidentally started a chain reaction. The grass where I whizzed started to die. My wife started crabbing about how the grass was dying just in that one spot and was baffled as to how only that grass would die. It never occurred to her that I might be whizzing there.
Over the next several months, she puts down soil, seed, waters that one spot dutifully… all in an effort to get the grass to grow just in that one spot. Of course, I would come out at night and whizz on the same spot, over and over…
This goes on for 3 or 4 months. Not even kidding.
One day, she’s sitting on the porch and starts crabbing about that dead spot next to the porch… “I don’t understand it! How can I do all this and nothing grows here?! Not even weeds!”… that sort of thing.
I couldn’t take it anymore and just busted out laughing… I finally let her in on what I had been up to and, well… she didn’t appreciate my sense of humor… My son, however, appreciated the patience and humor involved, much to the annoyance of my wife…
One of my favorite things to do is to go into my son’s room and take something, wait a couple days, then go back in and put it back exactly where it was… just to mess with him. Haven’t got any feedback on that yet… he could have noticed, figured it out, but is playing the counter-intelligence game by pretending not to notice just to see what I will do… or he could be oblivious… or he could be wondering WTF?!?

Bizarre river of sand and hail strikes desert
Strange …?!November 17, 2015 at 1:53 pm #45255
Very strange indeed. No matter how clever we may think we are, Mother Nature can always still surprise us.November 18, 2015 at 5:07 am #45280
Malgus, thanks for a great laugh just before going to bed. Great story. Sounds like your poor wife is badly outnumbered, though. Still had me laughing out loud.November 18, 2015 at 6:42 am #45281
Leopard, thanks for the river of sand and hail. It beats the strangest weather I ever saw — raining mud. I was driving and couldn’t use my wipers, lest the windshield become scratched. I had to stop every few minutes to wipe it off by hand, then rinse with my drinking water.
Malgus, I can hardly hear Dancing Queen without thinking of this:

……and this gets my vote for “Song of the Year!”
