Friday Foolishness – Classic Dance Edition


Today’s Music: Clint Black – Good Run of Bad Luck (because I wasn’t going to use The Hokey Pokey.)
Days Til Spring: 74

Welcome once again to the Friday Foolishness. the holidays have ended, we’ve settled back into our routines, and I’m here to help you start your weekend hootenany and jamboree with a little bit of harmless idiocy.

Last week, we asked about your Plans for the New Year.
Here’s what you had to say, in Other (comments in italics are mine).
BRAAAAAIIINNNNSSSS! -I want in on it. – Flame
(Done. The flesh eating minions will be contacting you shortly with your…welcome packet)
Buy the Jennifer Aniston doll for self, but leave it for Santa
(Please tell me it will be new in the packaging. Or accompanied with a bagful of Sani-wipes)
new house. basement and backyard already full of bodies – Miss R.
(If you run them through a woodchipper, they take much less space, Miss R. Trust me.)
Great Googly Moogly!! Screw last year where are the last 4 ? – lizzecracked
(If I knew that, lizziecracked, I’d know why I keep getting those letters from the Canadian border patrol…)
to break all my resolutions by morning, January 1 (John Phillips)
(But isn’t that a resolution in itself, John?)
I plan to discover the meaning of life or the meaning of Life cereal. Lindaver
(For a follow up, could you find me a life of meaning, Linda?)
I’ll take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way!
(Well said, and amen!)
(See that folks – if you leave your name in your Other answer, you get a linkback!!!)

And the winner this week is
What? WHAT??!? Where did last year go?!?
I feel your pain on that score. I really do…

But no point in dwelling on the past!
Because it’s Friday, and that means
Brand! New! Poll!!!
As always, the poll will close next Thursday, just before midnight. And if you like, please leave ID in your other comment. So we know who to blame thank.


The poll closes at midnight, next Thursday

And, to keep you busy until then, I leave you with this…
(This one’s for you, H.E. Ellis.)

  1. Love that video! Reminds me of some guys I knew in college that would have laser saber fights complete with sound effects while holding their dinner knives. Of course, that was right after Star Wars was released.

  4. Googly Moogly comes in at the end of Nanook Rubs It
    (http://www.metrolyrics.com/nanook-rubs-it-lyrics-frank-zappa.html)
    But I’m not sure if that’s where it originates. I’ll keep digging…

    And I don’t want to know what’s going on when your butt hits you in your door. I’m going to guess that’s a metaphor for something, but I’ll try not think about it too much.
    I think the flying monkeys just gave me an idea for next weeks poll if I can work out the choices.
    Ramble On, lizziecracked!

    • oooo thank you so much!! I thought it was Nanuk – I guess I stopped listening too soon. Thank you and with a link too? Wowww 😉

      THe butt? and door? No no metaphor… I don’t think so anyways.
      YOu made my day. I know its silly getting that twisted up over a song but damn. Oh I still play Darth Vader with my 5 yo – lol it’s a benefit of having kids … and I just forgot the rest of that thought. Nuts.
      YoU aRe ThE dUdE oF tHe HoUr – no – MoNtH….RoCk On!!!!

  5. Next year I’m asking Santa for a Lazer set to “Ef you up!”
    And your quiz was HARD! You can’t believe how much time I spent trying to think of what I would put in on the Hokey Pokey. But I’m glad you asked because how many other people in the world have ever had the opportunity to think about that? But these are the kinds of things you do El Guapo. And frankly it makes me feel unique. So thank you from the bottom of my left foot.

  6. I voted for the 600 because you are the only person I know who has mentioned that long ago poem. That I had to memorize. And recite. Good times.

    • Glad to bring up some obviously fond memories.
      Feel free to leave it in the hokey pokey circle, Addie. By law I need to scrub and sanitize everything in this space before next week’s poll.

  8. I loved the answer Brainsssss. Except, I do not want to eat them I want to use them. Years of partying has taken its toll on the one I have. Let that be a lesson to all you younguns. Restrict your partying to once a week only. That daily thing is a cell killer.

    • You know these kids today. They aren’t gonna take advice from a couple of seasoned pros like us, life is a bowl of kibble.
      On the other hand, it’s so much fun to mock them when they’re trying to recover!

    I think I have a recipe for a Hokey Pokey Roast around here somewhere. Although I’m not sure if it’s anything that would actually be edible. Or safe.

  10. Hi,
    Yep, that song is now stuck in the old brain, and not only the song, the many, many, times I have actually done the Hokey Pokey so I have pictures as well. 😯

    Awesome video, that reminds me so much of some of the guys I dated way back in the good old days. 😆
