When Being Patrick is Not Good

Good grief. Sometimes there are things that occur in the comments of posts, that get me to laughing.

Yesterday, the Straight White Guy had a post on Sponge Bob and the fact that the space shuttle is being piloted by a UT grad. I know, an unlikely combo, but Eric seems to be able to always fit these things together as if they belong…. In some wonky but interesting jigsaw puzzle.

So the comments occur and I’m LMAO off at Erica (who if you’ve not read her blog, is a real trip and a pleasure), and Elisson (who is amazingly creative), commenting about Patrick Starfish. The two of them bring out the most laughter in me at times, and this for me was no exception.

And it just reminded me of something so completely, I don’t know the words… aghasting? Not a word. Stunning? Perhaps. But not quite. Astonishing sounds... too positive.

I’ve been doing a lot of work with my Webelo’s den, trying to help them get the Arrow of Light badge. I had the three boys in the car and they were talking amongst themselves. Something came up about food. One of them eats very poorly… a lot of sugar.

So something came up about this and Mr. T said (keep in mind, this is three ten year old boys, who obviously will talk about anything in front of me), “You have to eat vegetables.”

Bob the Webelo: Yeah, you do. Otherwise you get spikey poop. Isn’t that what you called it Mr. T?

Mr. T: Yup. Spikey poop. You have to eat vegetables.

Good grief. I hear about Spikey Poop. Trust me. I live in this family. But I am wondering what in the HELL has been said in the past, what conversation that I missed, that his two other Webelo buddies are versed in the ways of ‘spikey poop’. How did that come up?

And that is what popped into my head when I read the comments about Patrick Starfish. Spikey Poop. Great.

Ahh, spiky poop...Patrick the Doodie-Shaped Starfish. Now it's all beginning to come together. Where Erica goes, fart humor is never far behind (so to speak).

You are such a scheone zisa bubele for saying such nice stuff--thanks! I'm quite fond of you, as well.

... I tell you, the best thing about blogging is how the commenters take ideas and run with them.... and yes, I make that Marty Feldman face nearly every day as I read them.....

It's gotta be distinctly uncomfortable to crap out anything remotely echinodermatous...Patrick included.

Ouchie.
