I Love This Joke

Spock Monkey

Too bad the card didn't make it.

That's right.  Somebody created this card, and didn't call it "Spock Monkey."  The inside said something LAME like, "Hope you birthday is out of this world."

Really?

No even a "Live long and prosper."?

But guess what comes out in a week?  Star Trek!

Yeah, baby.

WHAT?!?! They DIDN'T call it Spock Monkey?!?! They DIDN'T say "Live long and Prosper"?!?! Are you kidding me?!?!

Someone soooo deserves to be fired over that. I mean, C'MON.

Rarely have I seen a card that truly displays wit and cunning.

Fancy starting a card business with me?

Paula said...

Cora - I can only think it was some kind of copywrite / license thing. Because seriously, I opened the card EXPECTING the joke to be "Spock Monkey" and was tragically disappointed. But I bought it because, HELL, I have a scanner and Photoshop...

Mo - Thank thought would terrify my IRL friends almost as much as me becoming POTUS. (President of the United States)

Paula - Hadn't run into much bloggidy hype for it yet, so thought I would get the ball rolling before Matt Jenks trumped me again like he did with "The Watchmen."

I'm going to cry if they make it all special effects and no story. I will go to JJ Abrams' house and I will kick him right in the bum.

This has inspired me to customize Mardi Gras Monkey with special ears and a toupee just to make Johnny B laugh.

I am responding to this post while camped out first in line at my local movie theater!

Well, not really, but I can't wait!

Like your version of it much better!

If Joe Biden freaking thinks he's gonna keep me off that plane in three weeks, Scope, he's a boob!!!!

It's this kind of stuff that makes me hate all politicians from all sides. Grrrr.

Hey, Joe, should I stop sending my kid to school? Should I stop going to the grocery store? Should I burn my Miss Piggy puppet and my kid's Piglet doll while praying to the Swine Gods to spare us? Should I dive under my bedcovers and cower there, never to surface? Huh? HUH?!

Please.

Let's calm down, Joe. Deep breath. Easy now.

Nuff said.

Cora said...

Oh, and Scope, you brave and fearless subway-taking man, I think as long as you're not licking the floor of the subway you'll be fine.
