For Sass – A Staple Of The Season

This little post goes out to Sass, and all the mothers (and sure, a father or two), who love their children, dearly, but need them back in school before they lose their EVER LOVING MINDS!

I always enjoyed these commercials, even if I didn't have little ones.  I hope you enjoy them, too.  Wish they would bring them back.

I love the look of marching off to "Death Row" on the kids' faces.

Actually, I think she's right.  The second line of the chorus is:  "School's out forever."  But maybe only if the "school's been blown to pieces."

I like the first kid.  I still remember 6922251*8!

(Sorry Morgan, you're the only one I know still in school!)

I love the 1st one, never saw the 2nd one, and the girl at the end of the 3rd one reminds me of Christina Ricci.

*this makes me glad I don't have kids. ; )

Although in my day we made the calculators say "BOOBLESS". Probably NSF-TV.

Ms. Sassy B. - Please perform the following steps (assuming you have a PC. A Mac? You're on your own.

1) Start > Run > "Calc" enter.

2) In the calculator, perform the calculation 6922251*8

3) Turn your laptop upside down / do a headstand. If you do the head stand, make sure the curtains are open and the mailman is coming up the walk at that time.

4)Notice how we are on the same wavelength there.

Have a great morning.

I think I am the only parent in the world that hates the school year more than the kids do.
Although this will be the first year that all the weasels go full time. Maybe this year will be okay after all.

I was practically giddy this morning fantasizing about how quiet the house will be next Monday.

Then mother guilt sunk in - my babies!!

Yeah, I'll get over it.

Hi
I am here from VodkaMoms site.
I'm in Canada and our commercial is
The new edition of "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and shows an overjoyed Dad parading through a STAPLES store while pulling a rope that is attached to a sofa where his two dismal-looking children sit. The children are clearly not happy to be there.
These commercials are so funny, you can't help but laugh

Maggie said...

LOL! Yeah, I bet parents are damn happy!

Which reminds me, down here with the whole influenza thing, they cancelled classes and I remember a mom saying to us. "WHAT ON EARTH AM I GOING TO DO WITH THEM AT HOME??"

LOL!

Oh, sorry I missed this! But those Staples commercials are amazing, no lie. Alice Cooper was my favorite. Even though at the time, I had no clue who Alice Cooper was.
