Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging

Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love So, we're using the Oblique Strategies again? A little low on inspiration, huh?
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Hey, 'sup with the romantic mood lighting?

Red Mr. Peanut Bank The Lovely Mona is studying and Padre's not very good with the lights. And, yes, we are going to pull a card from the Oblique Strategies deck right now!

Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love So we have to do what ever the card suggests? This could be interesting, or incredibly boring!

Gallito Mescalito ¿Shriek? ¡Shriek!

Padre Mickey off camera Let's take these out of the deck and shuffle and takes our chances!

Mighty Moose of Vermont You only live once; but if you do it right, once is enough.
¡El Penguino! Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about!

Don't bother trying to teach a pig to sing; you only waste your time and annoy the pig.

Footloose and fancy-free!

Everybody in one voice Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely!

Padre Mickey off camera Now THAT'S a cliché! And a frightening cliché at that!

Padre Mickey off camera How difficult can this be?

Everybody in one voice No skin off my nose!

Mr Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Whoops! Pardon me!

¡El Penguino! Er, Gallito Mescalito? I don't think you quite understand the concept "do nothing."

Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Ha! Call Bunrab, the Filthiest (and raggediest) Toy in the House!

Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House Why are you making me do this?

Bunrab, the Filthiest Toy in the House Gawd! This is SOOO embarassing!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love I'll say! Look! You don't even have a face anymore!

Everybody in one voice Is there something missing? Yeah, a plot!!!

Hey, works for me, especially parts one & two; why else would I be saying this?

Fred Schwartz said...

Well Padre,

The one about the pig I heard it this way: Don't mud wrestle with a pig because only two things happen: you get dirty and the pig loves it!

or how about, "Stick a fork in him/her 'cause he/she is done."

My truly favorite one is the a short vignette from the Magnificient Seven (for you youngsters that was a movie with Yul Brenner and Steve McQueen amongst others) loosely based on the Seven Samurai. Anywho, when the Steve McQueen character was asked how he thought they were doing he related this story. "Seems there was this guy who decided to jump off a ten story building. About the sixth floor a person sticks his head out the window and ask the guy who is going by the question, "How's it going? The guy falling says "So far so good!". There are times when I really can relate to that story.

Looks like a plot to me... hang out doing nuttin' with a few obstreperous non-compliant folks.

Well, hey, once again, that was um...oblique!

I heard a new colloquialism today that is sure to make a wonderful cliche...he/she's so dumb, he/she could not organize a pissing contest in a brewery....

"Look closely at the most embarrassing details and amplify them."

Is this a Catholic game?

Is there something missing?

The Teletubbies are Union and these low plot line Fridays cannot afford to pay union scale in the budget.

Is your set of Oblique Strategies original?

Which edition???

Padre Mickey said...

Yes, Aghaveagh, it's original. It is the third, slightly revised editon from 1979.

I See You!
