So my smallish, newish dog likes to lay around with his junk hanging out. And since he’s on his back, if his unnaturally long legs are relaxed at all, it always looks kinda like he’s pointing at his penis. After looking at this sight for about 4 hours on a really long car trip I made up a song* about it.
I am Gobie
This is my ween!
We say “Hello!
How have you been?”
Of course, you kind of have to fudge on “been” to make it sort of rhyme with “ween”, but it works insofar as you’d expect a singsongy chant about your dog’s Johnthomas to work.
One of the negative side effects of this song is that now whenever someone politely asks either my husband or I “How have [we] been?” it makes us crack up.
But now there is another negative side. Because there is apparently a new holiday where we Christians try to “take back” a holiday that’s basically ours in the first place. That new holiday?
You can imagine why I have trouble with not cracking up at this. And when I’m not cracking up I’m busy rolling my eyes because the actual word SHOULD BE JESUSEEN. The “w” in Halloween comes from the word Hallow. Since Jesus is not spelled Jesusw, this whole Jesus Ween is ridiculous on yet ANOTHER level.
(Hat tip on this goes to Aunt B., who saw it first and thought the same thing I did.)
*(I make up songs about a lot of things. I’m told by many who are close to me that the character Zooey Deschanel plays on New Girl reminds them of me. Is this a good thing? Hmmmm.)
