__________

Karen's notes: Adam and I had an extended debate this morning as to whether that first insult makes any sense. He tried to argue that it is a double snub, that the person on the receiving end is both really stupid and full of shit. I pointed out that, the way it is worded, he is actually saying that the person is not stupid, because their brain is full of shit. Either way, I don't think it makes sense, or is one of STM's best efforts. Thoughts?

As for that second one, you are all welcome to take a stab at translating it. I gave up.

Here's the transcript of the reveal:


ADAM: OW!
KAREN: Oh, Baby. Is your hand ok?
ADAM: Can we— can we staple some pillows to the headboard please?
KAREN: Maybe we should.
ADAM: It will make my life a lot more comfortable.
KAREN: What was getting you?
ADAM: What? I don't remember.
KAREN: Okay.
ADAM: I just know that I was woken up by a sharp pain in my fingers.
KAREN: Well, I can tell you what you said very shortly before that happened. You were accusing someone of being a crepe fondler-
ADAM: A great fondler?
KAREN: Crepe fondler, and telling them to get their sticky mitts out of your batter.
ADAM: If that's a euphemism for something, then work it out for yourself.
KAREN: No, I think you— I think it was literal.
ADAM: Okay. Phew. There's nothing worse than having somebody put their fingers in your batter. Ruins the consistency.

  1. I think the first one is more like... about someone like me. Really brilliant at pop culture, but rubbish at most other things. Some people say knowing the theme song to SpongeBob or that Elfquest was 8 books or where the Daleks came from is "shit information."

    So maybe, it was meant as like... if it wasn't for all the [useless & unnecessary to life knowledge] in your brain, you'd be just [boring & really useless because you wouldn't even help us win trivial pursuit by knowing that David Tennant's real name is David McDonald]. Really.

  2. Also, number two sounds like "I fly so high! Oops."

  3. it sounds olike "it looks so fine, hm"

  4. I don't know whether to say poor Adam or poor headboard lol. That things taken a lot of abuse of the months (lmao, and apparently not in the good way (bow-chicka-bow-bow)) lol, j/k :-D

    Anyhoo, No idea what he says in the ???? one cause it's 4:13 a.m. here and I don't want to crank the speakers less I wake up the tenant downstairs (unlikely cause he sleeps like a log, but I digress).

    Wow, I'm chatty when I'm over-tired.

    Cheers from Canada :-)

    Kimmie B., that's me :-)

  5. I think the first works as a double insult, implying that the insultee has shit for brains, hence are really stupid, painfully stupid, possibly even hilariously stupid. If they didn't have said shit, they would just be plain old, run of the mill stupid. The shit makes them exceptionally stupid.

    That's how I read it, at least.

  6. I say 'NO' to stapling pillows to the headboard. So Adam has a few bruised fingers, but we get laugh/enjoy the reveals. It's ALL about us!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I agree with R-Co. If the person didn't have shit for brains, they'd STILL be stupid. Double Whammy insult...

    ReplyDelete
  8. I've listened to number two about ten times. STM says, "I flew so high! Oh!".

    Instead of stapling pillows to the headboard, why not put boxing gloves on Adam! They would protect his hands, and your headboard wouldn't look like a misguided attempt at modern art!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I thought the second one sounded rather like "I feel so fine! Oh."

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm gonna invest in pillows!

  11. It's like a scale:
    Smart .... Average .... Plain Stupid ... Shit For Brains Stupid.
    If the 'you' weren't shitforbrains stupid, he graduate 'up' to plain stupid. So the 'you' is still stupid, no matter what.

  12. Tracee - I am a font of shit information! Your post actually scared me a little - it was like someone picked my brain. Huge Tennant fan, know all the words to Sponge Bob - and I haven't heard anyone mention ElfQuest in a dog's age but was thinking about it yesterday. Creepy.

    Karen, you definitely need one of those podded headboards.

  13. Number one sounded like he was saying someone had so much information in their head and if they didn't have it they'd be stupid....

    I thought number two sounded like 'DOn't look so high! hm.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You really need to post a picture of this dangerous headboard that Adam keeps getting hurt on.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, "shit for brains" is an awesome insult! And people are going to want to buy the mug. Then please take the money and buy a padded headboard. Hopefully, STM's followers are more interested in the banana than the banana peel.

  16. And my contribution to the dicussion on ?????
    It sounds like he says: "I look so high. Hmm." But it's hard to hear with the singing voice he use.

    And what is a crepe fondler?!

    ReplyDelete
  17. "There's nothing worse than having somebody put their fingers in your batter." I demand a shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I did crank up the speakers on the second one and it sounds like "I look so fine! Oops" to me. Which is totally in keeping with STM's obvious lack of ego (tongue in cheek)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think it's "I feel so high, hnn". The headboard really is putting up with some punishment, and the boxing gloves idea is brilliant. I wonder what STM would say? Maybe:"I'm prepared for battle", heh heh heh.

    ReplyDelete
  20. the second one sounds like either "I feel so fine... hmm" or "I feel so high... hmm" either way is hilarious... STM is part of my morning ritual... need a laugh when I first wake up... and STM NEVER disappoints :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. I vote against the boxing gloves idea...mainly to save Karen from any accidental pain. I know a few too many people who throw punches in their sleep. The padded headboard makes more sense. This way the headboard doesn't hurt Adam but he can't hit something and not know that he did.

    ReplyDelete
  22. XD HAHA, Crepe fondler!! He says it with such contempt! Brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I heard..."I'm so afraid" which might of gone with his violent movement to get away from whatever was scaring him.

    ReplyDelete
  24. actually more like "I feel so afraid"

    ReplyDelete
  25. I heard "I feel so fine! Oh." as well.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Shay suggested, "There's nothing worse than having somebody put their fingers in your batter." I demand a shirt.

    Works better as an apron :-)

  27. I'd like to personally thank STM for taking the time to speak to the world last night. Truely nothing better than waking up on your birthday and laughing at last nights ramblings.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i hear my butts on fire in the second one...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Well, we've had cheese lickers; now we have crepe fondlers - (snail fiddlers might be included, if you accept them as escargots):

    Seems STM is carrying on a one-man crusade against food abusers..... 7@=Q

  30. I use the word shit for most things and people, and I thing STM is doing the same. Shit is in this case another word for stuff and what he therefor is saying according to me is, if you didn't have some sense you would be a complete idiot.

  31. Im thinking the ???? one is "I feel so high... Oh!" or it could be Flew?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Adam is as funny as STM!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hear "Puppies will fly"
    But maybe its just what I want to hear because it sounds funny =)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hear "Feng shui football."

    I thought of you at bedtime. I'm driving across the US so each night is a different hotel. As I went to bed last night, I realized that the comforter was lodged between two thinner layers. I've never been confused about a duvet but I sighed happily as I thought, "A duvet cover?!"

  35. HIGH FIVE for the "shit for brains" one
    perfect for today after my sister told me she was making out with her ex boyfriend who had pics of me in his phone... TMI and yes what a dirty bag

    ReplyDelete
  36. I interpreted the shit for brains one as meaning, you are only smart because something occupies your head. What occupies your head is shit and without the shit your head would be empty and you would be even more stupid than you already are.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I heard "I look so fine, Oooh."

    ReplyDelete
  38. "My butts on fire!"
    or
    "My crepes on fire!"

    ReplyDelete
  39. Souffle? Maybe he's on a food thing...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Am I the only one hearing "here's the soufflé! Hm" quite clearly?

    ReplyDelete
  41. ???????? = "It looks like rain. Hmmm."
    That's what I hear.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ????????? = i hear either "i look so fine....ooh" or "my foot's on fire....oof"

    ReplyDelete
  43. The term "shit for brains",as in that guy has shit for brains, implies the you are really stupid. But if you take away the shit, then you are just plain stupid. Not really sure which is worse.

  44. I have to agree with Adam on this one - there's no way to come out on the side of positive if that comment is thrown in your face.

    ...and to think of all the years of lost STM... sad to think about, really!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I was having a "kill the pony" flashback. And what was that *thud* when Adam woke up? Is he okay??

    ReplyDelete
  46. Maybe my hearing is totally messed up but it sounds like "I've got your flag pole" to me.

    ReplyDelete
  47. If there was no shit in said person's brains they'd just be plain stupid. Instead, they're stupid and full of shit.

    Or at least, that's how I heard it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. As for the ???? comment, I heard "I look so fine, hmmm."

    ReplyDelete
  49. "Wha-what's on fire?" is what I hear for the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  50. No no it was "What was so frighte--ning?"


    He finished the word almost like an after thought because something else was happening..

    ReplyDelete
  51. It also could be "It was so frighte--nin'"

    ReplyDelete
  52. I thought that the second one sounded like...life is so fine....hmmm
