First off, a thank you to all of you who entered my Disney caption contest during our Funny Friday blog hop. I think it was fairly successful because I totally won like two things so far (I’ll put them down when I have a grand total, in case I get lucky again) and I never win anything. So awesome.
Anyway, as I said before, the girls and I have had fun (perhaps a little too much) posing dolls and taking pictures, though I assure you this is nowhere near as bizarre as the games we play with them. “Boyfriend in a box” comes to mind.
But this time it’s our fairy tale characters. We wanted to know what happens when the honeymoon’s over, and reality hits that no one paid the mortgage on the castle in 100 years. I’ll show you the contest pic (Pocohontas and Merida) and its winning caption in a bit, (go ahead and scroll down, I’ll wait) but first I’d like to show you what happened after the Disney princes babysat the kids. In case you forgot that post (or tried to, here’s the LINK DROP and the pic since you won’t follow the LINK DROP). Turns out they were paying more attention to football than the kids.
Dreamworks and Pixar are tied 20 to 20!
Then Belle, Cinderella, and Rapunzel come home to find the terrible mess. Belle yells at hubby, Ariel comforts her beaten up daughter, and Cinderella smacks Charming on top of the head.
The ladies were less than pleased.
Next time, the couples decide to hire a babysitter to watch the kids. Skipper comes highly recommended. Unfortunately, her boyfriend and best friend did not.
Seemed like a good idea . . .
So the kids went a wee bit wild. Yes, that IS a child sitting on the stovetop, and another encouraging a friend to crawl inside. Two of the toddlers are being pushed in the infant’s crib, while said infant crawls right out of her diaper, headed for the potty, and another kid is trapped in a high chair. One of the pre-teens gets a lesson in Dating Ed watching her babysitter, or something like that.
What will happen when Kristoff and Anna (from Frozen – if you haven’t heard of that movie by now, I really don’t know where you come from) come home to see their house a wreck? Find out next time, on The Princesses of Disneyland County.
Now on to the winning caption. It was difficult – I had many good entries. But none could beat this one, done by ravinj.
“Sorry about the hunting mishap. When you said the bears were your little brothers, I thought you meant metaphorically.”
This one made me both laugh out loud and directly related to the movies. You guys really need to get caught up on your G rated stuff. This coming from me, the one who reviewed 50 Shades. Anyway, congrats Ravin, and I’ll be sending you that fabulous signed artwork soon.
What do YOU think is going to happen next on The Princesses of Disneyland County?
So it’s finally here! Halloween? No, the Funny Blog Friday Thing! You know, the thing! I’ll just use the face I give when I’m pretending I have some idea of what I’m talking about.
I am completely clueless.
Fortunately I have never let this stop me before. What we have here is a Funny Blog Hop with funny bloggers and prizes, lots of prizes (not that you need incentive to visit a blog. Prizes.) I did realize (maybe?) that I’m to show you my contest TODAY, so those of you who read before totes got a heads up! Yay for you! I think! I’ve already had some funny entries, but I can’t wait for more. The winner(s) will get three pictures of the fictional Alice drawn by the real Alice and her real Things (14 and 10 year old daughters for the uninitiated).
Thing One is still procrastinating on hers (she claims stomach flu, bah!) but here are the others:
Here’s my artwork – wooot. Notice the 50 shades book. For shame, Alice, go back to books with pictures. Same to you, James.
And Thing Two’s. This is so weird, yet adorable somehow.
Now for the caption contest! Simply ignore everything I’ve said in any post so far, if you read them, and give me a caption for this picture of Pocahontas (from Disney’s er Pocahontas) and Merida (from Disney/ Pixar’s Brave). You can write it in the comments section.
Have you not seen these movies? Then Wiki them, or don’t, it could be funny either way. Anyway, have fun with it. I can’t wait to read some more. I’ll choose a winner based on how far the coke squirts from my nose when I read it. Oh, right, here’s the picture, performed by my the girls’ Disney dolls.
After my post, be sure to check out the rest of this crazy blog hop. They might even know what’s going on.
But for now, my latest scary Halloween post.
I thought a while about what would make a good Halloween post – something scarily funny, and the first thing I came up with was Jekyll and Hyde. If you haven’t heard of these guys (guy?), it’s one of those classics they often make you read in English class. I somehow escaped it – maybe cause they made me cover MacBeth like at least three times (seriously). If you know the Incredible Hulk, you pretty much have this story down, though. Jekyll angry. Hyde smash.
But that’s not the scary part.
Nooo, see they also made it into a musical.
Still not the scary part.
One version of this musical starred him.
Yup, that’s right. Our hero / villain is “the Hoff”, the man best known for Knight Rider, a show about a man dumber than his talking car, and Bay Watch, a show about men and women in skimpy swimsuits that are also dumber than a talking car. Which sadly does not make an appearance on the show. He’s gonna star in a Broadway musical.
But, hey, maybe we misjudged the guy. Let’s look at the cover of the DVD.
That – that face . . .
Wow, that was truly horrifying. But it’s just a picture, right? Here’s a clip from the musical, performed live on Broadway in front of I’m sure dozens of people. This is a normally very passionate song in the play. Then Hoff gets a hold of it and . . . just watch.
After watching this my first reaction was:
Then I burst into laughter. Actually I laughed the entire way through, from his first appearance looking like a cross between the lead singer from Smells Like Teen Spirit and Mrs Howell from Gilligan’s Island. The way he chews on her neck, and creeps around and makes this, this face:
Hoff goes from one hammy, overdramatic look to another, clawing the girl while jutting out his chin, throwing his head back and shouting his lines. And that he’s trying to be serious just makes it even funnier.
That poor actress he works with – she looks truly disturbed by him, and not for reasons having to do with his playing a psychopath in a play. I think she’s mentally planning her resume, and how to leave this one off the list.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!
