I'm Hiding Under The Covers

This morning the local newscast was running a story about how retail prices are falling in the wake of the recession. Before throwing it over to the weatherdude, the anchor ended the story with, "I guess like the Captain and Tennille said, you better shop around!"

Seriously?

That little bit of awful was definitely - as Mariah Carey said - "Bringin' On The Heartbreak".


Ed. Note: Upon reflection and reading of the comments, it is apparent that hardly anyone got this entry. I would like to apologize for being obscure and emphasize that it is isn't your fault. Not everyone's pop culture knowledge is as extensive as mine is. I shall try again tomorrow with a post that contains more fart jokes clarity.

Sincerely,
WWW

WTF, dude? Dissing Captain and Tennille? It's gonna take more than love to keep us together if you keep knocking the great ones.

Red: Very succinct and accurate.

Beck: Before you leave, just do it to me one more time.

Cora said...

And like Captain Sensible said, "WOT?"

Gwen said...

Be careful hiding under those covers, you could accidentally dutch oven yourself.

I'd tell you I'm crawling under the covers with you ... only that may not sound right. Gotta love those zany newscasters. Or not.

p.s. - wise words from Gwen.

Well, I think that The Beatles would say "I am the Walrus."

I was trying to think of something randomly stupid like that, but all I could think of was the clich├ęd Beatles. v.v

Who the fuck references Captain and Tennille this day and age? Did you watch it the next morning to see if there were any Neil Sedaka lines thrown about?

In response to note: Yes I am a Pop culture idiot. I still thought the rumors of Brad cheating on Angelina were true up until Tuesday of this week. And I'm not kidding.

I'm just glad I'm not the only pop culture tard. And you'll be my phone a friend should a pop culture answer be required for the million dollar question on that one show.

Cora said...

HEY!! I referenced Captain Sensible just for you, okay?! Captain freaking Sensible!! Now THAT is OBSCURE, my friend. When was the last time you heard anyone bring up Captain Sensible? I could have referenced Captain Crunch or Captain Kangaroo, but NOOOOO, I gave you Captain Sensible and yet you are not satisfied? Tough man to please, hmm? ;-)

Hey, slacker, you owe a visit to my blog. I've got a question for you there. Actually, I guess it's the other way around, I'm soliciting questions from YOU. Whaddaya wanna know about Cora, hmm? Just don't ask me if I've had sex in public because Sky Dad already asked me that and I'm having a tough time deciding what exactly is defined as "sex" in this case. (Actually, let me skank up your comments here for a second and ask you what you think: "sex," does it have to involve actual penetration or do other acts count?!?!)

I'm sure they were pummeled with email. Were you one of them?

Quoting the Captain and Tenille is the new black you know!

And I have that damn Captain Sensible song somewhere. "I SAID, CAPTAIN? I SAID WOT U WANT!?" (it's atrocious. Don't let Cora make you download it.)
