chilly in the bathroom

60 degrees is not cold if you're at the park, but pretty chilly in the bathroom.

I suppose it's also pretty chilly if you're going to the bathroom in the park.. but i digress.

I'm just sayin'.

is this about shrinkage?

No. No it is not.

Honestly, Eric, when I saw that I had a post from you on this one, I was kind of expecting it to be something about "hot chili in my pants!"

Don't know if you remember, but that was one of your favorite things (to say) for awhile back in HS. There was a period where almost everything was "as good as hot chili in my pants!"

I have no idea why. : -|

Sure way to combat shrinkage though, I suppose!

hot chili....

gawd i haven't thought about that in years. the saying was from a sketch comedy show called LIVE ON TAPE that was filmed in the quad cities and shown on UHF (KLJB -18). I wish I had some tapes. The show was funnier than hell and Kurt Webster and I were prolly their biggest (and only) fans.

"pour hot chili down my pants" was a throw away line that was said only once, but we thought it was hysterical.

Kurt called the station in the late 90's trying to find tapes of the show. They gave him the email address of one of the show writers. They actually traded phone calls. The guy went on the write the sequel to one of the CASPER movies. heh.

Wish I could get those tapes....

So that's what that was from! I know the show. I'm pretty sure that you had some of it on VHS, because we watched it a couple times.

Binky the exploding clown.. "when I was 18...but now.." And the "holy knobs!" guy..

Oh, yes... So good to know that ALL of my memory banks aren't filled with Monty Python and Spinal Tap.. some of them are dedicated to this, instead.

And I wonder why I can't pass college-level algebra.

I kinda remember binky...holy knobs for sure.

What really stands out in my memory is:

- "Iowa Driving Tips with Sergeant Buck Montana", where the driver was encouraged to leave on their turn signal for several blocks after the turn.

- "Nose Nuts", a parody of Grape Nuts Cereal. Q: Did this come from a tree. A: No, it came from my nose.

- "Gumbo", a parody of Rambo starring Gumby. "I'm looking for an orange horse named Pokey".

...and there was somekind of children's PBS parody where the show host would read books and his sidekick was a foul mouthed sock puppet.

hahaha.. Gumbo!

Gumbo: "I'm lookin for an orange horse named Pokey, have ya seen him?"

Guy in fake asian-eye glasses: "No, we no know no Pokey.. but if we fin' him, we tell you how he taste! ho ho ho!"

Gumbo: "EAT FLAMING DEATH!!!" {machine gunning}

That Gumbo bit is actually a scene from an episode of The Real Ghostbusters where all these cartoon characters come to life. (And yes, I got to this page by googling "I'm lookin' for an orange horse")...
