Oh...and no show next week due to vacation.

  • We also had the -ist saying growing up but in our case we had the variation in which lie/eye were substituted for joke/coke. We also had the booger chewing one growing up.

    I don't even remember in what context those were used. Did we just say them as an alternative to "how's it going?" or what? It's not like "Baby Baby Stick your head in gravy, roll it up in bubble gum and send it to the navy" where it could be used as an insult. Wait a minute - wasn't the -ist one part some joke?

    And no, I never ramble - it's all a vicious rumour. Which reminds me of another rumour I heard...

  • I guess you guys would never stoop to the levels we did in Montreal, with ditties like 'I see England, I see France, I see Mary's underpants, not too big, not too small, just the size of Montreal'.

    But you left out the 'who's it' ryhmes, like 'Eenie meanie meini moe, catch a ni-' oh never mind that one. ' We even had 'Engine engine number 9, going down Chicago line, if the train goes off the track, do you want your money back? Y-E-S spells yes so out you may go.' Or 'My mother and your mother were hanging out the clothes, my mother gave your mother a punch in the nose. What colour was the blood? R-E-D spells red so out you may go' Or....

  • I miss you two as well! I keep thinking that evening went so fast and I wish we had more time to hang out. I hope you have a great time up in Canadia.

  • Okay, I admit, we had the underwear one, I totally forgot about that. But we ended after underpants, we never went to Montreal. Americanadian Difference, I guess...

    The only other one I can remember is "Jingle Bells/Batman smells..." but that's more of a seasonal song.

  • Thank you for your sympathy Ross, and thank you Karen for your suggestion. I think that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm going to walk away from my work, computers and life. Time to go and live the hippy life in the wilderness.

  • The "coke" chant was the punchline to a joke that I vaguely remember. Political correctness prevents my going any further.

    Now, a couple years ago, my girls came home singing the "Miss Susie had a steamboat" song. I'm sure an entire term paper could be written about how that song survived through the ages...

  • We had:
    I don't shut up, I grow up,
    and when I see you I throw you,
    then you come around and lick it up, with ketchup!

    Yeah I know ... WTF?

    I'm bummed I won't get to meet you guys in Kingston. You'll have to keep an eye on Andrew for me though! Oh and you missed an awesome game 7 even though the Oilers lost!

  • This is SO stupid, but we had "Ah, bobarr!" [pronounced BOB- ahh]if someone did something likely to get them into trouble. Bobarr was a VERY rude word, meaning... poo.

    Also, my childhood was even MORE politically incorrect- kids of my generation would joke about AIDS, when I was about 9 or 10- this being when it became such a big issue in the media...

    If you were chatting with someone and they said 'are you sure?' and you said yes, they'd say 'are you positive?' and if you said yes they'd run around screaming that you were [HIV] positive... ah, the innocence of youth.

  • Hey kids:
    It was awesome meeting you finally in K-town (as the cool kids call it). Hope the leg is doing better.

    If you're back in Toronto let us know. We'd love to hook up fer sure!!!

    Now for the childhood line: "Not too big, not too small, just the size of Montreal!" Heather thought I was such a geek when I said that to her.

    Cheers.

  • We had a really lame one...no offence meant to anyone with Muscular Dystrophy...but we were ignorant yutes (youths)....


    Group : Ross can't walk...Ross can't talk...Ross's got Muscular Dystrophy...sing Ross...

    Ross : (assorted grunts and moans)

    It was a whole lot funnier 30 years ago...wow...30 freakin' years ago I was in high school...how old am I...

    Excuse me while I line up and demand my stinkin' senior coffee at McDonald's.

    ;-)

    We too hope the leg is ok.

  • As I was on my way to work yesterday I heard a story that made me think of this latest podcast. I wonder if This guy was inspired by the saying you mentioned.

  • A slight variation on Misty's line that we used here in the cornfields:

    I don't shut up, I grow up,
    and when I see you I throw you,
    then your mom comes around the corner and she licks it up.

    Probably the first mom dis we all learned.
