Fun With Camera Phones: Amish Edition

I would love to have been a fly on the wall when Joey and Sassie debated what they wanted to do for their Rumspringa and came up with...Shakey's. Not Disneyland? Not the beach? Not Hollywood? Not smoking cigarettes behind Jumbo's Clown Room? Not even...a bar? SHAKEY'S?

FRIENDS: "So tell us about the outside world!"

JOEY: "It's filled with balloons and pepperoni pizza and the wings of chickens covered in a sauce more fiery than Satan's lair itself!"

SASSIE: "And unlimited refills of Coke!"

I am certain Joey and Sassie will remain in the Amish community.

The fact that Shakey's misspelled "Rumspringa" just adds the perfect touch of pathos.

7 metawords:

Sadly, I think Joey & Sassie's new-found love of fast food will make them leave the Amish community, steal matching pairs of Levi's and a Station Wagon and then go on a brutal, cross-country, rampage of bank heists and convenience store hold-ups, all strung out on a heady rush of sugar, monosodium glutamate and hydrogenated fats.

And then Oliver Stone will make a film about it, starring Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, who will of course also sing a duet for the theme song, probably titled something like "Rumspringa Blues (Ain't Nothing Like a Fillet o Fish, Baby)"

Oh how I've missed your particular brand of hilarity, WWW. I am officially LOL.

Bonus point because you used "pathos", one of my all-time favorite words, in the post too.

(Hate to admit it, but I learned something too ... not too many Amish folks in NYC, so I've never heard of such a thing. Obviously, I'd have opted for the cigarettes and sex.)

I died @ "the wings of chickens covered in a sauce more fiery than Satan's lair itself!"

Perfect. : )

w/v: strop - this is actually an Aussie word for an angry mood, e.g. Joey & Sassie went into a strop when Mother refused to make them bacon double cheeseburgers such as had delighted them at Shakeys.

Girl: I cannot decide if I want to watch that film immediately or if I want to burn down the internet so that no one in Hollywood sees your idea.

Diva: Perhaps you should chaperone Joey and Sassie's next expedition! Also, since you are OFFICIALLY LOL, do we get to have a ceremony?

S&C: That's no mother I want to ever have! Strop is also a word here. It's that leather strip you see cowboys sharpening their straight razors on.

Shakeys! Where the amish go to get their MoJo's.

Tammy said...

If the Amish like the Shakeys so much, what am I missing here in the Great White North? Do I need to embark on a road trip to the nearest (no doubt extremely fine) establishment?

Do they serve watery soda in those tall, bumpy opaque cups? Do they? Tell me 'cause if they do I'm packing up the car NOW.

Hahaha! I was thinking the same thing: dang, they'll NEVER leave the Amish community now! Still though, Shakey's was a better choice than Chuck E Cheese's.
