"Keep an eye on Zebedee. He's a shifty one. It's the spring I don't trust."

"Dip Dabs are my favourite sweet. But I always have too much dip. Not enough dab. Not fair."

"Fly soup. Stir him in. It's the wings that get stuck in your teeth, though."

"Toilet showers! Convenient AND refreshing. Nice."

"I made snot pictures. I sneeze in my gallery, all day. Lots of different colours. Making bogey money."

"Being horizontal is a state of mind, not just necessary."

"Step outside, needle-dick bug fucker. There's a whole world out there, and they just want to hate you, too."

Karen's notes:

Zebedee - A character from the most annoyingly inane children's film, The Magic Roundabout. As Adam explained to me this morning, "he's got a spring up his ass."

DipDab - Adam had to look this up when he woke up (weird!), but once he did, he remembered loving them 30 years ago.

Toilet Showers - Here's my guess about this one: In Thailand, the toilets all have little hand-held spray nozzles that you can use to wash your nether regions. The Thais use this instead of toilet paper (in our case, we made use of both... sorry, probably TMI). At the end of the trip, Adam commented that he would miss them. They ARE refreshing.

Bogey - This is the British equivalent of "booger" in the States.

Don't Stop Believing - Shortly before we left for honeymoon, Adam got obsessed with the new version of the song from the show Glee. We listened to it every morning for two weeks. I have to admit, it does rock.

  5. Mmmmm Dip Dab's.

    Is Adam anywhere near as vocal as this when he has put a few beers down his Neck?
    If so, does he want to go for a pint, haha.

  6. I've been sick with a head cold, and this has made me feel better than any medicine! I laughted so hard when I saw:

    "I made snot pictures. I sneeze in my gallery, all day. Lots of different colours. Making bogey money."

    THAT's what I should be doing! Making bogey money! lol! Thank you Adam and Karen! Love to you both

  7. Toilet showers???

  8. I put the quotes in. Thanks for catching that, guys.

  9. Wait! I think I just figured out what Adam meant by "toilet showers": In Thailand, the toilets all have little hand-held spray faucets that you can use to wash your nether regions. The Thai's use this instead of toilet paper (in our case, we made use of both... sorry, probably TMI).

    At the end of the trip, Adam commented that he'd gotten pretty into it. They ARE refreshing!

  10. Just added the toilet shower info to the blog post

  11. Hi,
    Just a quick correction (OK, so I'm being pedantic)... Bogey = booger in the US, not boogey...
    Fly soup... Classic!

  13. The Magic Roundabout was also a children's programme loooooong before it was a film. It was rather good. Never seen the film though so couldn't possibly comment.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh Karen! The Magic Roundabout FILM might be "annoyingly inane" but the original cartoon series is beautiful, original, ever so slightly trippy and a huge part of every 40-something's upbringing. The movie is not worthy of that noble title. I spit on it. Pah.

    ReplyDelete
  15. i have to say i grew up on the tv programme as well as other classics like the womble's, the clangers, jackanory, crackerjack, captain pugwash, battle of the planets amongst many others!

    oh dear i am really showing my age.

    karen's only exposure to the former is the film i am afraid to say. the tv show is far too trippy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. hey val, 30-somethings also grew up on it!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. WOW, you continue to shock and amaze me!

    "I make snot pictures..." -perhaps on a box of tissues? At least when your sick you'll get an occasional chuckle; I think Anonymous above would buy a couple boxes right now.

  18. The fly soup is the one that made my morning better!!!!! How funny is that???? This blog is such a kick start to my day - and I thank you over and over for that!!!

  20. He speaks the truth. There never was enough dab, and it always came off the stick.

  23. "Time for bed, said Zebedee. BOINNNG"

  25. About toilet showers: Here in Finland (and I think in other Nordic countries too) it's very common to have a toilet shower, better known as bidet shower in a toilet. We use toilet paper too, so it's used to the same purposes as a traditional bidet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bidet). I've heard of Finnish people who missed it in UK so much they ordered one from Finland to be installed in their bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  26. FYI, you can install the "toilet shower" at home. Just go to your local hardware store. We have them in my house. . .

  27. In Japan we have a toilet shower too, two different types. The toilets here have many interesting things, the seats are heated, they have a button you press and a nozzle comes out and sprays your bum with warm water and there is a ladies one that..well...washes other parts too with warm water haha it's kind of shocking when it first comes out at ya but in Japan they make use of both toilet paper and shower. In some public restrooms there is a button to press that makes a toilet flushing sounds haha so others don't hear what you are doing and there is a button with air freshener in it that sprays out.

  28. Step outside, needle-dick bug fucker. - I love it!!! Best line I've heard yet.

  30. I really want to go to the loo in Japan now...

    I loooove Dip Dabs (always used to eat loads of the sherbert loose then eat the lolly separately, though) and the old Magic Roundabout is indeed wonderful. Apparently originally it was a French film that was then split into segments and re-narrated to make the kids programmes here, but I'm not sure if that's true or just a rumour.

  35. I much prefer the Rock Sugar version "Don't Stop the Sandman". Basically, they took the "Don't Stop Believing" lyrics and put them to background music reminiscent of Metallica's "Enter Sandman".

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr4HffbAUTk

    I'd like this version more if the promise made in the initial few frames of a pure acapella version was carried through the entire thing.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Rock Sugar is way better!

  37. Oh wow, my six-month old son absolutely LOVES the Glee version of Don't Stop Believing. He can be crying up the biggest fit and we put it on...instant smiles. Too cute!

  38. "Needle-dick bug fucker" made me think of the program I was watching the other day (about parasites, the way bed bugs mate). Does STM watch "Monsters inside Me" by any chance?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Random comment: I think "The Magic Roundabout" was revoiced and released as "Doogal" in the US a couple of years ago. It didn't do very well here, so I'm guessing it was just as inane.

    ReplyDelete
  40. LOL OH my gosh, how did you not keel over laughing with the bug f*cker one? That's hysterical

    ReplyDelete
  41. Riikka: Not all Nordic countries - in Norway, toilet showers are not common at all. I don't believe I've ever seen one in Sweden or Denmark either, besides when bathrooms are equipped with a bidet, which again is fairly uncommon. I encountered toilet showers a lot in Bangladesh, though.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I used to love Dip Dabs too and I'm with Adam on the Dip-to-Dab ratio :).

    ReplyDelete
  43. This place never fails to make me laugh!! How fun to have pics of the quote items today. I looove the audios - thanks for every single one! So funny to get an education today about alternate shower experiences. :)

    LOL at
    Adam - "a flushed bottom is a happy bottom, i say!"
    dreamer5565 - "I really want to go to the loo in Japan now..."

    And the unexpected never quits. Imagine the face of the guy who just got told to step outside, and then instead of some version of "and I'll tear you a new one" he hears "there's a whole world out there..." How could he do anything but stop and say "wow, dude, seriously, that was an awesome insult..."

    Thanks for the Steve Perry clip, Prof Z - classic - and I loved the hilarious intro to Dochi's Rock Sugar clip!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you again for the daily laugh. As another American married to a Brit, I enjoy daily Adam impersonations. It's become part of our repertoire -- whenever my Brit wants to be rude (which, I have to say, is shockingly often here in the States; he's realized he's far more charming here than in England), he adopts sleep talkin man's voice ... and I laugh and laugh and laugh. Thanks for the extra hilarity.

  51. I'm sad to say that The Magic Roundabout was turned into the most awful movie here in the States, called "Doogie". It absolutely HAD to be better in French, cuz it was the worst 1.5 hours I have ever spent. My 5 yo son (at the time) loved it, altho' he had a hard time with the 60's references from the rabbit.

  57. The snot pictures are maybe a Blackadder reference. Baldrick made them in the series set in WWI.

    I sometimes seem stuff that is vaguely familiar from The Young Ones (the lentiles e.g., Neil was always making them) and Bottom too.

  60. Are Dib Dabs like Fun Dip is in the US? That's what I'm picturing but the "sherbet" reference above made me rethink it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. "Snot pictures" reminded me of an episode of "The Suite Life on Deck" (a Disney channel show starring the Sprouse twins). As for Dip Dabs, in the United States, we have Fun Dip and some other name that I can't remember. There is always too much "dip" (powder) and not enough candy stick or sucker, really.

  62. Magical roundabout is called Dougal in the states. :)
