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!
