Stuart Smalley. Remember him? Back when SNL was still good (admittedly I haven’t watched it since Will Ferrell left), Al Franken, comedian-come-Minnesota-State-Senator, created the character, Stuart Smalley. Stuart, even though he was a fictional character, influenced one of the things that I say a lot.
Today, I had a few more people subscribe to my blog *insert fist-pumping-of-the-air-here along with near-silent roaring of a fictional crowd*, and as I was describing to DH that I had some more subscribers, out came, “… because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.” The ease with which this phrase is uttered by me, the type thing that just rolls off the tongue, amazes me. I began to ponder over other things that I say often. This is by no means a complete list, I have to save some material for other days…
From The Simpsons, Montgomery Burnses phrase, “Excellent!” complete with finger tenting…
From The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper’s, “Bazinga!” (love this clip… it makes my sides hurt from laughing)
From The Simpsons, Bart Simpson’s “Ow! Quit it!”
John Pinette’s, “You go NOW!….” (Just for you Mom! )
The Family Guy, Peter Griffin’s “sucking in air” when he hurts himself (yes, I really do this)
South Park’s boys shouting, “You Bastard(s)!”
