FIRST

Thanks Dave. I'm all wanging and chunging.

Good enough for me.
Me and my Bobbie McGee.

Mmmmm-bop!

*ducks and runs*

You're testing us, aren't you, Dave?

Ha! That was my first FIRST post! That was awesome! I was moving so fast I didn't even get time to finish my name! I was like some kind of mythic posting creature conjured up specifically to post first before all mortals! Okay, maybe I went a little far there. Sorry.

*wang chung tonight*

Hmm. Isn't that Maury Povich's theme song?

Bob and/or Doug, calm down a little. Have a drink.
Red red wine.
You make me feel so fine.

Every night ... and you know why?
I'm so glad,
I'm so glad,
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad
I'm so glad,
I'm so glad,
I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad

I was actually having other thoughts today, but what the hey, your thought looks better, Dave.

Neener, that comment as to who I am just proves how little sophmoric humor you have. I challenge anyone to explain what my name means. Yes it is possible, it is from a show and feature-length movie. And I am sorry for frothing all over my post, I was high on a First post, which WAS sweet.

I feel compelled to ask some questions:

Why must we have fun only tonight?

More importantly, why must we wang our chung tonight?

Does wanging of ones chung imply that one will have fun?

We can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind. 'Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance, well, they’re no friends of mine.

I appologize to all for the hostile tone, I had Starbucks Doubleshot this morning. But seriously, the challenge is still on.

B&D Fan: That would be Bob and Doug McKenzie of the Great White North.....

I loved the movie "Strange Brew" and even bought the album and later the CD....

You hoser....

S'okay. I remember doing a happy chair dance for my first post too. And I have loads of sophmoric humor tyvm. I hang out here after all. I have subtle girl type sophmoric humor. I can freeze a bra at a sleepover with the best of them.
Let me just say in parting...
neener.
and
booger.
*blows a raspberry at bobdougdude*

Ahhhhhh Freak out! Le Freak C'est Chic

Freak out!

It's plain to see what this is about. Dave's plugging your local Chinese takeout establishments.

How noble of Dave.

Hi everybody
I'm Archie Bell of the Drells
From Houston, Texas
We don't only sing but we dance
Just as good as we walk

Congrats Pinto, you get a free Elsinore on me. (I know a guy who has a whole 18-wheeler full. "That's a five-speed times two!") BTW Walmart is selling Stange Brew on DVD for under $10! Beauty EH!

Dave,
I only "wang chung" after too many six packs and Pizza.
OH Wait! NBA Playoffs tonight. Gonna be a wang chung night after all.

B&D Fan: That would be Bob and Doug McKenzie of the Great White North.....

I loved the movie "Strange Brew" and even bought the album and later the CD....

You hoser....

Bob/doug, it's not that obscure...

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me... a beer.

But it FEELS obscure, Leetie. And I would be more of a Doug, BTW. I am knowledgable about hooking up stereos and starting a vehicle with spit and bird poo.

On the second day of christmas my true love gave to meeeeeee

2 boots for BobNDoug [for thinking the reference was obscure and thus insulting a great portion of the readership heeeeere]

and a large case of i-ice cold beeeer!

BobNDougFan: Fleshy-headed mutant, are you friendly?

Again, I refer to the Starbucks. The result is a normal lack of senaptic function, but now at warp speed. I did catch one person who didn't know, though. To all Bob and Doug Fans, I appologize for my freakish belief that I was the only one who had seen that awesome movie that should be an integral part of the high school sylabus. Please forgive me.

Atticus,
"No way! Years of radiation have made me an enemy of civilization!"

Oh Mandy well,
You came and you gave without taking,
But I sent you away.
Oh Mandy well,
You kissed me and stopped me from shaking,
And I need you today.
Oh Mandy...

Your Zen Moment of the Day:

The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
Do ya know what I'm doin', doin' the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

Oh, Fed, you slay me daily.

*dreamy sigh*

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day...

She's a super freak, super freak
She's super freaky, yow!

Freakazoid robots, please report to the dance floor.

That is all.

i'm a member of an anarcho-syndicalist commune.

"Old Woman!"
"Man!"
"Sorry, I didn't know you were a man."
"You could have called me Denis"
"I didn't know that was your name."
"Well, you didn't bother to ask."
"There's some lovely filth over here Denis!"

ring,ring,ring,ring bananaphone....

numa numa iei....

*sits back and shakes head knowingly*

You're all just falling right into Dave's little trap. Tsk, tsk, tsk...

Yes, were all his little minions, and he's gathering us for war on the Babs blog! ATTAAAAACK and take no prisoners, including toilets!

I am I said

To no one there,

and no one heard at all

not even the chair!

I have an obscure reference for everyone. Can you name the famous humor writer implied from this:
Booger!
Hint: He won a Pulitzer Prize. I'm not sure what a Pulitzer prize is, though. It may be a type of dog. Or car.

well, MY thought for today is:

craig ferguson. yum.

Is this a reference to "Hit me Baby One More Time"? I think Wang Chung performed recently.

My favorite was the (pregnant?) Tiffany.

Volkswagon = Boogerwagon.

i love `em :)

*Walks Like an Egyptian thru the comment section*

*slides into a Little Red Corvette on far side of thread*

*peels out.. leaving tire tracks on Thunder Road*

Judi: With or without the mullet?

Banarama,
Hall & Oates, Men Without Hats,
Pat Benetar, Wham!

Reminds me of a hilarious scene from Cheers - Frazier is at his bachelor party in the back room of Cheers:


Frasier Crane: You know, on the way over, I decided to listen to a rock station to get into the mood. And I heard a line in one of those tribal passages that I thought was the keynote for this evening. "Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

I am proud of the commentors that nobody yet has made a sophomoric comment in which "wang chung" was reversed to the phrase "chunging the wang," which could of course be a euphamisim for "mulleting the David," or "answering one's banana-phone."

Oh. Guess I just broke the steak, huh...

i like broken steak with BBQ sauce.

'Cos your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine.

If you can break a steak, it's overcooked.

gfunksizzle,
first of all, awesome name. Wish I had thought of it, but alas I'm enamored with Canadians. Second, what is the exact procedure for "breaking a steak?" I would assume a freezer and a bodybuilder were involved, but I can't make the math work out.

God, I just love that we're such an autonomous collective!

Dang. and here I thought I would finally find out what "wang chung" was secret code for without having to reveal my ignorance in the matter. All my life everybody has been wang chunging and I've just been sitting at home asking my cat "What does it mean???"

Ominous Reminder

Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town

Okay, the Klingon Macarena was deeply disturbing, and not just because I had to listen to that stupid song again.*can't stop laughing* As to breaking a steak, get one from my old high school dining hall and drop it. *crash*
Splintered steak bits!

Ah, that makes more sense than my idea. I was sure it needed a high-quality steak, powerful freezer, and doped-up strongman. Now I see all I needed was a really poor quality steak. Now the equations work out. Thanks DS

"Stop Making Sense"

It's a Cruel Summer,
Only Time Will Tell

Love is a Battlefield

Cynthia, thank you very much for the Klingon Macarena. I enjoyed it very much and would have fallen out of my chair laughing except that I'm at the office and do not wish to draw attention to my clandestine computer activities. I feel sure that surf control will prevent me from trying to see it again.

Dave,
Does this mean you've finally watched Napoleon Dynamite?

Streak! Not steak!

I can feel my high school English teacher disapproving of my lack of proofreading from here...

Glad you all had fun with it, though...

We appreciated your misteak, gfunksizzle.
*does the Misty Mountain Hop*

You know it's a long day when we get posts like this!!

I know, I keep looking at the main blog page hoping there will be something new there. I guess that's the reason you got jumped on so much gfunksizzle. BTW, I really meant that about your name, it rocks! In fact, I think I saw a band with your name. Sweet!

I have no idea what "wang chung" means but Hey Hey What Can I Do? There must've been a Communication Breakdown. Guess I'll have to Ramble On. Good times, Bad Times, you know I've had my share . . .

thank you b&d, and I'M NOT DEAD YET!!!!

Remember, as a follow-up Wang Chung later penned "Kung Fu Fighting"? That way if you didn't get or didn't know how to Wang Chung at least you could go off and study Kung Fu instead... because Kung Fu at least has an identifiable history of being, um, real.

*is Dazed and Confused by that last remark*
Is it just me, or does the expression "blogged" sound like some sort of unpleasant, not mention untidy, bodily function?
"Oh, great. The jackalope's just blogged on the carpeting again."

QB:
"I feel happy! I think I'll go for a walk!"
"Shut up, you're not fooling anybody!"
(PS, are you in reality also gfunksizzle? If that is true I will have a massive stroke.)

who else is me?

I do love the python bits, though...

No, she's not gfunksizzle. She's...A WITCH!

She turned me into a newt!

(I got better.)

Desert Rose

You mean, like,
Father: "our teenaged son blogged his wang chung again tonight."
Mother: "How do you know?"
Father: "He was in the shower for forty five minutes."

Crap. Now I'm both confused AND wrong. Wonderful.
"Let's not go to Camelot, it is a silly place."

My favorite python bit is "How to give up being a freemason."

with them hopping down the street with their pants around their ankles and whatnot.

Cyn - loved the klingon Macarena!

How's it going?

igloo - is wang chung what they call 'world music'?

How Many More Times are we going to hear the phrase "chunging the wang"?
Oh, intercourse the penguin.

Sorry, but I will not wang chung. I will, however, do the Time Warp. Again. After all, it's just a jump to the left...

At last, a discussion about Rock & Roll! Did I mention I'm Going To California soon? *pets her Black Dog* Tangerine, anyone?
*posts from Over The Hills And Far Away*

Eleanor - "world music" is those old vinyl things we used to put on turntables so we could listen to music.

Oh, wait...that was "whirled" music...

Holy crap! I actually work for a few hours and you all go crazy over a post about, well, nothing.

Seingfeld would be proud.

And so would his cousin Jerry, sly!!!

Eleanor.... doin' great thanks ;)
glad y'all liked klingy...all the posts were very creative and fun.

*round of applause for everyone*
***yeaaaa!***

Yummy, yummy, yumy, I got love in my tummy

Just hoping that this is proper vengeance upon Dave for ever introducing me to this horrible song.

Now back to our regularly-scheduled chunging of wangs.

Da Doo Ron Ron Ron Da Doo Ron Ron

D&BFan -- long ago (in a galaxy far away) I found a cassette tape of Doug and Bob's commentary on life, metric systems and beer. I quickly purchased it (25¢, I think) so I could further my ambition of learning how to speak Canadian.

Burning the midnught oil, U.O? How's it going?

Celebrate good times.
Come on.

And speaking of Midnight Oil....

How can we dance when the room is turning?
How can we sleep while our beds are burning?


That is all.

me too Sondra!... Thank You for the AWESOME link. i've been looking for that stuff for years.

So, WTF happened to my witty, charming, erudite and hilarious post in answer to the burning (midnite oil) question get abducted off to?

I've free high-speed at this new hotel, and it's sorta angrifying me ... it's worth about what I paid for it ... eats posts ... won't open pages from whence I just linked or posted, drops the connection and hafta start over from square two ...

NEway, Josh, not exactly ... up late even tho I started @ 0-dark-hundred ... long drive here to SLC, and then a rental mixup (how does one actually rent a vehicle over the 'net? I thot I did, but they din't have the truck ready for me, 'cuz they said it was just a quote-quote-unquote ...

I get to sleep in tomorrow (Wednesday) and then thumb-twiddle until help arrives to load stuff for the broken-armed guy, then early to bed for 0-dark-minus-30 start of an 11-hour drive back ... such is the good life of the pious itinerant ...

Besides which already, this "free high-speed internet" at the new hotel/residence is worth just what I paid for it ... eats posts, drops connection to browser, slower than dialup ... what a miserable (insert 11-, 12-, 13- and 14-letter adjectives here) example of a 'net connection !!!

*bakes a completely wang chung-free Custard Pie* If those guys from wang chung have mullets even worse than Ted's, they should be Trampled Underfoot and shipped to Kashmir.

This is what I get for having an evening side-job with no internet access. Gotta catch up on all the fun at once, when y'all are asleep.

1) Erm, alanboss, that lyric is actually: "How can we dance when our Earth is turning..." When the room is turning, that's our cue that the party is over, or the club is closing. In either case, call a cab. And quit trying to dance to Midnught Oil, whatever that is.

2) BobNDougFan, congrats on your first first, and sorry I got home from work too (not "to") late to (not "two") get a more timely "Five GOLDen TOOOUQUES" into the fray.

3) Aunt Nancy, put your hands on your hips and bring your knees in tight -- I'm right there with you! "Two, four, six eight, show us how you..." Actually, disregard that. I'm too (not "2") newbie here for such an honor. But if that day ever arrives (har!), I sincerely hope there's whirled music involved.

4) Desert Rose: I'd love a Tangerine about now. But I've been at my airport job dealing with too many passengers coming home on a Night Flight, one of whom (I am not making this up) had a license plate frame identifying him as "The Rover". So I'm too tired to do the Misty Mountain Hop, but I might be persuaded to Boogie With Stu. Provided that I can extend that to "Boogie with Stupendous Redhead/Blonde/Brunette".

For the record I have no desire to boogie with Stu Nahan, for all the "Fast Times..." fans in da blog.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Sick Again, of your job, that is? Does that mean you've got Travelling Riverside Blues? And how did you know I'm a redhead? *makes Tea For One* I'm usually up this late In The Evening, anyway. Okay, maybe it's closer to morning, but you get the point. If you want a stealth reference, check my email address.
