OOOOOHHHHHHHH! I *just* got that now! That's pretty sad.
I always liked the sketch where Kermit and Piggy sing "waiting at the church" where Miss Piggy has a pillow under her dress to look like shes pregnant
OR! this sketch
NEVER got this till I was older- and boy is it SOOOOO much more funny! Gotta love the mating calls Frank Oz makes LOL (if you cant watch it, its the Koozebanian Mating Ritual narated by Kermit LOL
Oh the shape of their mouths, AWESOME
That one is hillarious.
One I didn't get until just last night while thinking of it:
MASTERSON: Do you believe in interspecies dating?
BROOKE SHIELDS: Well, I've dated a few rats before, if that's what you mean.
When I was a kid, I always thought she meant she had dated literal rats. Last night I was thinking about the scene, and realized she was referring to men who act like rats... who'da thunk it?
lol. my firends say 'Om-nom-nom' all the time, as a way to ask if what we're eating's good or if we're hungry, and a while back, after a year of saying it, a friend of mine just screamed 'Omg! Cookie Monster goes om-nom-nom!' and we laughed, cuz that's where we got it after all.
lol, we still say those jokes, i'll tell them the sandbox one next time i see them, thanks for the line
You're quite welcome!
Aw, thanks guys, now I don't feel so bad, hehe. Though I think this just proves the joke was just as bad as Fozzie feared it would be. Lol
That's exactly the kind of joke that you can put in a family movie where the kids will laugh without losing their innocence, and the adults won't be bored, hehe.
I'm watching the Texas Telly episode of SS, and I'm noticing lots of Indiana Jones references that most young children wouldn't understand. Of course, I've only seen the first and most recent I.J. movies, so there might be more references that I didn't notice, but so far, there was a boulder scene, and at one point Telly said, "Snakes, why did it have to be a snake?"
Oh! Here's one that's even more hilarious than the I "Eight" the sandbox skit. Look here: http://www.toughpigs.com/anthernie03.htm (the first one)
LOL. So corny, but so funny all at the same time.
ok, I had one of those moments just this week
So I was watching A Muppet Family Christmas and it got to the part where Fozzie is singing with the Snowman and maybe its because I just could never understand what they were saying (I really think that was it) but here is the joke I JUST got
Snowman: oh its always cold at Christmas
Fozzie: oh Christmas time for Santa Clause and his 8 dancing Reinbear
Snowman: thats Reindeer
Fozzie: no thats snow darling!
NOW I GET IT! HAHAHA! My husband looked at me like I was crazy....
here it is at 2:22
Same here, it wasn't until a quite a few years back that I actually got it, heehee.
When I first saw it I roffled so much, but only because I didn't get it, and I found it absurd. A little while afterwards I got it because I have three Polish friends and they're last names have a "ski" at the end. x3
I remember that! The first time I saw it I didn't understnad, but when I saw it when I was about 13 I was like, "....wait a minute", I mean, it's funny, but you still sorta think, I wasn't expecting that!
Yeah, I've had this experience a number of times with different TV shows, mostly noteably TMS and The Simpsons. I've been watching The Simpsons since I was pretty young and I'd often laugh at the more obvious jokes. But for the past few years I've picked on on things -I come form a family who analyse films/shows all the time, so it's no surprise I guess- and how they take the mickey out of society and Tv stereotypes (eg. a housewife), it's amazing how funny the more obscure things are.
Okay, this is minor but:
Re-re-watching a VHS of Muppet Classic Theater, during the 3 Little Pigs part when the Wolf comes up to Miss Piggy's house made of bricks and she answers the door and he says:
"Oh, a brick house!"
"You're no junior petite yourself."
After watching that video like 1000 times I still didn't get it, like, OF COURSE it's a brick house! It's made out of bricks! Duhhhh...
I just got that earlier today.
Also, after watching the Cindy Crawford episode of Muppets Tonight, I'm surprised they got away with using this one scene:
Krazedmuppet, it took me until this year to catch that joke too, it was so bad it hurt... course right after i made my sister listen closely, and we recited it to my mom, it was unanimously awful, but still.
Now I can't get that song out my head. Ugh...I hate disco.
It's not disco.. it's funk.
It was a part of the "all-funk" Muppets From Space soundtrack... now the real question is... why would they decide to make a soundtrack all funk?
In IAVMMCM, Kermit confronts Miss Piggy about her work as a fake psychic, and Piggy's response is: "Are you a cop? Because if you are, you have to tell me."
Is this a reference to the false idea that if you ask an undercover police officer (specifically in the case of a... well, inapropriate and illegal line of business) if they're a cop, they're required to tell you?
I can think of 2, both from "Letters to Santa": invents a 'wishing machine' and when tries it out, he wishes for a supermodel, and then later at the party, Bunson cuts in and dances with Beaker.
Ahh... I love the smell of Swiss Moments and Fridge Logic in the evening.
lol definitely the Tony Randall show, where Piggy is turned to stone and Floyd's taking shots at her...
Fozzie: (lifting Stone Piggy up) Boy you sure are heavy, you must at least weigh a ton!
Floyd: That's good, that means she's lost weight!
Hey Gonzo, did you hear that Miss Piggy is very worried about Kermit?
Worried about Kermit? Why?
Well she's worried he'll take her for 'granite'!
lol I saw this when I was like 6, and this is definitely why Floyd's one of my top five faves.
