Adam slept like a log (a silent log) until the plumber woke us up.

But I do have a special treat today: audio! Take a look at the left panel. It's not very graceful implementation, and I'm still working out the kinks, so I apologize if it acts up for anyone.

If you want to watch us on TV, check out the "STM in the Media" section in the left panel.

We also just added "Our Favorite Things Online." This is not a place for exchanging links, it is a brief list of our actual favorite things online.

  1. Wow - thanks for the audio clips. My hubby does similar mutterings in the night although definitely not as frequent!

    Once he said...
    Eat crocodile, eat crocodile. They eat chips.. cheddar too.

    Think I sleep too heavily now and miss all his chunterings.

  2. The duck one is very funny. I wonder what is going through his head when he says this?

  3. The audio clips don't work in Firefox unless you look at the page source and pull the direct link out.

    Firefox has a 35% market share on Windows and almost 100% share on Linux.

    Any chance you could find a way that doesn't exclude those of us who refuse to use Microdoft products?

  4. I watched the NBC Today Show clip which was posted on Yahoo News. Afterwards I spent an hour reading through the entire blog. I haven't laughed quite that much in a long time. Thanks and happy dreams!!

  5. Hmmm.... they are working for me in Firefox on Mac. Can anyone else comment on their experience trying to hear these in Firefox? -Karen

  6. Sounds started to play all of a sudden and all of them at the same time, I didn't even click anywhere, which is pretty annoying. Does anyone other have the same issue? Also, I have these bars on the left side that don't seem to be doing anything. I'm using Chrome.

  17. Works ok for me and I have Firefox. And now I'm laughing all over again, the audio gives an added edge of sheer unadulterated silliness! Thank you both so much! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  18. Fantastic, love it, love the audio! More, more please! :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. everyone who can't listen is just having plug-in issues; it has nothing to do with what web browser you are using.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sounds works for me in Firefox under Linux, just need to make sure you install the correct plugin when prompted.

    ReplyDelete

    Keep them coming!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Audio works fine in Firefox 3.5, a great addition to the site :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Firefox 3.6, Win 7 - and no sound for me! :-(

    I grabbed the links from the source, and they work fine so here are direct links for Don't Leave the Duck, Kittens, Potato Bags, Badger Tickling and Pirate.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh how I GIGGLED. That was amazing. I'm so glad you're putting the audio up!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Please, could you have the audio in MP3 or WMA.. I just hate the QT plug-in, & QT itself. Bloatware... yeah I know I'm wining.. I don't like it too.. But I'd love to hear the audio.. if anyone could please post the audio somewhere else in MP3/WMA/any other format that does not require the QT plug-in, I'd be grateful... All those who have FF & W7 but no voice, it is the W7 Plug-in..

    ReplyDelete
  26. To the anonymous person who says it's not working on Firefox, I only use Firefox and it works fine on mine. Maybe it's your windows vista that is the problem?

    Love the audio, especially the potato bags one, Adam sounds so plaintive!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hurray! Audio! It makes it even better. Thanks for the time and energy to put this out. Can't wait to hear the rest.

  39. Oh my gosh! I am literally crying from laughing so hard! This is my new favorite website! Will have to pass it on to coworkers and friends! Too funny! Thanks for the laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is so great that you added audio! Thank you so much for this website. I have been sick and kind of depressed lately and I have not laughed this hard in no telling how long . I will look forward to checking in every day now. The pirate one is my favorite so far. HILARIOUS!! Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can't see it here. Win 7 and just updated to FF 3.6

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you, Tavdy. I can't click on it either. I use Internet Explorer with Windows 7..

    ReplyDelete
  43. Totally bloody brilliant! (although all quicktime files auto-played upon opening so one was hit with a barrage of sleepy hilarity!)

    ReplyDelete
  44. this has to be one of my new favourite sites.. haven't laughed that hard in a really long time!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The audio clips make it even more fun...I forwarded the site to all my facebook friends. Glad you made this site! In this world we are living in, anything that makes me laugh is worth more than gold! Good Job!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the potato bags hahaha. And he sounds so genuine when he says this stuff! Can't believe it's not scripted.

    Please please somebody do an animated version with the original audio!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. When you use Chrome all the sounds play together as soon as you load up the page. They are so damn funny though

    ReplyDelete
  48. Touché to the post about QT bloatware above. 31 megs to play what seems like direct mp3 links? Pretty please use something lighter.

    ReplyDelete
  49. OMG! The audio is AWESOME! You did a great job! And, you picked three of my favorite quotes! Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Saw your story on the TODAY show yesterday in the US and laughed til I cried (sorry Adam). Thank you for creating this blog, but more importantly, thank you for not being afraid to laugh at yourselves. Without humor in our lives, the world is a much sadder place. Thank you for brightening things up. And thank you for adding audio. Hearing him say these things is the icing on the cake.

    ReplyDelete
  51. LMAO From Steinhatchee Florida. Warning, don't read this while your drinking your morning coffee! You might spew it all over your screen!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can't get it to work in Chrome - but it does work in Explorer. In both though, the quicktime controls are just a black bar, I need to click around in it to find the 'play' button... Hilarious stuff though! Thank you! He would be a great punchline writer ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh my goodness I LOVE the audio clips!! Thanks for sharing!

  56. I am on a Mac w/ Firefox and I can hear everything just fine!!!!!! What fun this continues to be!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. i have to say that this is hilarious! i heard about him on the news the other day and i had to find this blog. it makes my day! i sleep talk sometimes but not to this extent. like this one time i slept over at my friend's house and she recorded me sleeping and all i was talking about was peacocks and buffalo. then they said after a long pause i shouted "SPINACH SAVES THE WORLD!" im so glad they recorded it. anyways i love this blog and find it histerical!

    ReplyDelete
  58. everyone, i was really really nervous about having my voice played out on air, and funnily enough more so having it on the site. but thank you for your amazing comments. the popularity of the site is totally unexpected, but the response from people enjoying the humour and revelling in the hilarity of it really touches both karen and i.

    thank you all so very very much

  59. I found you guys from the ABC news video featured on yahoo. I cant even believe how hilarious it must be to hear your husband saying such crazy things! is he bossy like that in waking life?i love the pirate ones... my boat, my rules. HAHAH!You guys are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  60. The links work fine. All except for the fact that they are in quicktime format. Why not try something a little more universal like .wav or .mp3

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yeah, I ran across this blog awhile ago via the blogs of note. Then I saw a clip of you guys on Yahoo. I LOVE the, "you can't be a pirate unless you have a beard... MY boat, MY rules. I almost died when I read that and listed to online. Too freaking funny. Keep them coming... I wish my husband did cool tricks like that. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I was shocked to find that it works in Opera in linux, though the bars appear black.

    ReplyDelete
  63. My sister was quoting Adam on facebook....I had no idea what she was talking about and she gave me this link. I'm laughing so hard I'm crying and my abs feel like I've been doing crunches! :) I'm book marking you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. well... i use IE and cant access the audio :(
    ... but thats ok... i heard it when y'all were on "This Morning"
    ... i read you guys every day now too :)
    keep em comin Adam... you have brought so many people laughter... that alone must make you feel great!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Saw you guys on the Today show yesterday! I love your blog...it makes my day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wow, that's all that can be said is, Wow. And I agree, putting the duck there is Totally irresponsible. If only it didn't have all the foul language... Maybe change the tv shows and movies he's allowed to watch, switch to PBS ;)

    ReplyDelete
  67. baaahhahahahahhahaa. hilarious. you should be a stand up comedian. just take some ambien right before the show and someone can wheel you on stage.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The audio is a great addition.

    One possible fix that should improve things for people running any HTML 5 supporting browser is to use the <audio> element. It could be used similarly to the example used on the linked page, placing the current <embed> element as a replacement for the unsupported message text as a fall-back for non-supporting browsers.

    Hope this helps.

    ReplyDelete
  69. My little sister talks in her sleep, a few of her memorable quotes...

    "Can we get the game where you blowup diapers?"

    "Yay, Bobby and David got a Playstation 360!"

    "Don't take the cookie jar!"

    "That elephant was. . ."

    There's more but I can't remember them.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Audio isn't working for me on Win7 / IE8.

    I really enjoyed your NBC clip, and am guilty of checking your page first thing in the morning as well. Thanks for the laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hahaha. Your husband is hilarious. I was just about to say you should have a Twitter, and then I found you on there.

    ReplyDelete
  72. OMG sooo funny! I thought I was the only one that did this...my family teases me...I see and say crazy things in light sleep... one time I woke up and said " there is a midget at the door!" and "Watch out for that cow!"....this is soooo funny. Glad to not be alone! ha ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  73. LOL! Precious! You'll have lots of fun at family gatherings in about 20 years!!!

    Not wirking in Firefox 3.5.7 on my PC. I just opened IE and waited and waited for the damn thing to load. Sometimes you can't get away from it.

    Love the Pirate...would love to hear Ninja!

  74. Awe darn........ There isn't anything that allows me to click on so that I can listen. Just black bars. I'm not sure what to do. :(

    ReplyDelete
  75. just black bars for me also, firefox and chrome on windows 7

    but anyway, i found my way to this site just last night.. and i honestly havent ever laughed out loud over anything until this. thanks so much for allowing us to peak in at this awesomeness

    ReplyDelete
  76. ROTFL!

    We and all of our boating friends just might need to have the pirate T-shirts....

    ReplyDelete
  77. I really like the audio; it makes it even funnier because of the delivery. He is so serious and sometimes even deadpan about it that it creates a hilarious contrast with the content of what he's saying. It's all in the delivery!

    ReplyDelete
  78. the audio postings are hysterical! thank you so much and keep it up!! :]

    ReplyDelete
  79. Thanks so much... you keep us all laughing here in Ottawa, Canada.

  81. Thanks for the audio! So so funny, Adam never fails to make me and my husband smile :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh my! The audio is priceless! LOVED the Duck!

    ReplyDelete
  83. My friend sent me a link to you on... something that was on yahoo video, anyway went from there to here and haven't stopped laughing yet. I've listened to the kittens one about five times and I still find it hillarious. Theres something about the audio that just makes it great. I think its the british. Its one thing to read things but I find it so much funny when I hear it with the british accent. Maybe its just cause British comedy is always so much better than North American and it makes me think of things like Doctor Who and Hitchhikers guide, but I just love the audio. Its got the serious tone of listening to an audio book or something, but unless I was listening to Alice in Wonderland or something you'd never hear these phrases in an audio book. I love it. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Firefox works fine for me. Love the website and following you on Facebook. Actually blogged about you too. My daughter volunteers at a shelter in the cat room and loves the kittens one. Hopefully I'll be able to get her a t-shirt soon. Wouldn't they be great to sell at shelters?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Haha, the audio is amazing! Love it. I'll be laughing twice as hard now.

    I'm running quicktime plugin 7.6.4 in firefox 3.5.7, on a mac, for reference.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I LOVE the duck, badger and pirate audio clips!!! They had me giggling endlessly! :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Adam at night is so much quieter and less quarrelsome than I heard in my head. He sounds very much like in real life Adam, only foul-mouthed and surreal. Definitely made it that much weirder and funnier.

    Re: audio problems -- please give Karen and Adam a break, they are sharing their lives with us for our amusement, for which we are all thankful. The audio is an extra special gift. I'm sure you can sort out your plug-in issues without kvetching about it here.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I have windows internet explorer but the audio buttons just have X's on them and won't allow me to click...so they don't work for me. I'll be patient though because I've already heard some mutterings on the This Morning show and on the post from yahoo! I live in a circle of friends that love to quote movies and tv shows in common conversations as private jokes....and these are all EXCELLENT quotes and topics of conversation so THANK YOU!!! You're a brilliant wife for thinking to do this!

  89. I just started blogging over Christmas break. 3 blizzards in a room and snowed in. Anyway, Your blog was the second one I started to follow, so when I saw you on ABC nightly news on Thursday I had to tell everyone that I follow your blog and how awesome that it has made so many people laugh and brighten their days. :-) ~Coreen

  90. I don't hear any movement of any kind in the audio clips. Or any heavy breathing. Or any kind of pre snoring. Or any neologisms. Or anything that indicates that he's actually asleep. I would like to hear more recordings.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Can we buy the audio for our phones? God I'd love the duck on the swing one as a ringtone! :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Karen, Ask him his name when he is sleep talking-- I'd be curious to see what he says...and if he is the same "person" in every dream.

    ReplyDelete
  93. AUDIO YAYYY!!!

  94. I hear them fine with firefox for mac, so no problem :D

  98. The audio clips are WONDERFUL, thanks so much! I love the duck one and the pirates one - I wish we knew what was going through his mind when he says this? I wonder if he even knows!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Thank you so much Karen for the audio! I love being able to hear the high pitched girly "too many whiskers!"
