Whitey Tighteys!

So, it has finally started to happen.  Ace has been slowly starting to talk.  First it was a few simple words like “Hi” and “Bye”.  Then, he learned some animals: dog, cat, cow, sheep, bird.

But, tonight we were watching my favorite educational television show…Cops.  They sure do find America’s finest to show.  Other countries watching Cops probably think we are a bunch of toothless, wife beater wearing crack heads.  But that is OK…it is good entertainment…for adults.

So anyways, they show this old man who was fighting with his wife.  His wife called the cops and when the cops arrived the man was just wearing his underwear…whitey tighteys.

They call them whitey tighteys for a reason…they are supposed to be kinda tight.  But this guy had them a size too big and about ready to fall off.

It was funny, and Ace’s Uncle Mike (also known as Munch in Ace lingo) shouted out in laughter…”Whitey Tighteys!”

And here comes Ace marching through the room clapping and chanting…””Whitey Tighteys! “Whitey Tighteys!”  😀  It was hilarious!

I’m sure it is just a start to what Uncle Munch is going to teach Ace…and I have it coming.  Still to this day  Uncle Munch’s daughter, Olivia still broadcasts to the world (public places included) that she farted.  😀

Where on Earth would she learn to do something like that? 😀

Wordless Wednesday – Hypnotized

Wordless Wednesday

Hypnotized By Moose A. Moose and Zee

5 Things That Will Make You Go, Hmmm?

  1. Cheese puffs are good.  Cheese puffs are so good that Ace will eat them until there are none left.  So many, in fact, that his fingers are permanently discolored, and his digestive system shuts down.  I’m talking orange polka-dotted-poop here folks…
  2. The dog has bad breath…really bad breath.  Almost smells as bad as his silent but deadlies.  And he loooves to lick your face.  😐 So, we got him the dog food that is supposed to clean his teeth when he eats it.  It works.  Kinda.  However, Ace likes dog food.  He eats it.  All the time.  Do we still need to brush Ace’s teeth?  I mean, I wouldn’t want to over do it…ya know!
  3. Baby dolls are for girls.  Ace is a boy.  He likes baby dolls.  Not in the carry them around, feed them, burp them fashion.  More like the poke thier eyes out and lick their face while holding them down on the floor fashion.  Should I be concerned?
  4. We have digital cable.  The kind you can pause and rewind.  Ace likes to play with the remote.  A LOT!  Ace puts it on Slooooowww Moootiooon all the time.  Is he telling us that he thinks we are slow?  We can’t keep up? Is it really that obvious?
  5. Shiny, streak free windows are good…to lick, according to Ace.  Is this glass licking fetish an early sign of “kid in the back of the short bus licking the window” syndrome?  God, I hope not.

My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad

mydadisbetter-showDid anyone watch the show My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad last Monday? Are you going to watch it tonight?

While My Dad Is Better Than You Dad is not going to win any awards, I thought it was a fun show!

There are four Dad/Child teams that compete against each other for the chance to win $50,000!

On last weeks show the Dads had to crush up office desks with a sledge hammer into tiny pieces. These pieces had to be small enough to fit through a small hole in a box. At the end of the specified time the Dad with the most weight of crushed up office desk in their box won the competition.

Seriously, what could more more fun? Destruction or demolition is the definition of fun for a guy. Add in a sledge hammer and we are talking about one hell of a good time. 😀

Another competition required for the children to be tethered high in the air. The Dads would hand their child a Velcro dart and swing their child through the air towards a large target. Again the highest scoring team wins this challenge.

Since they have already tested strength and accuracy another challenge was to test the Dad’s intellect in a question and answer round. The questions were fairly simple, though.

At the very end of the competition the top two Dads take turns shooting a projectile out of a gun to bust out windows for points. The kicker is that the Dad not shooting gets to stand in front of these windows with a frying pan and tennis racket to try and block the projectiles from breaking the windows.

The Dad that makes it all the way to the end gets a chance to win $50,000. The dad is asked questions about his child… What is his favorite color? What is his favorite saying? What is his favorite meal cooked by Mom? In order to get these questions right a Dad has to be very close to his child. For each question answered correctly they win $10,000.

All in all I thought My Dad Is Better Than You Dad  was a very entertaining show. Probably because I would love to do something like this. I checked the website to see how to enter to compete on My Dad Is Better Than You Dad, and the kids have to be ages 8 to 12 in order to compete.

Think the show will be around in 7 years so that Ace and I can enter? Probably not… 🙁

Oh well, I’ll keep tuning in each Monday at 9/8c and pretending to be those Dads.

Cheer me on tonight when you watch the show, because I will be competing in every event, right from my living room! 😀

Update: I got an email from an online publicity guy from NBC thanking me for writing about their show, and he did mention that there are video excerpts from the show available on their site.

Here is the sledge hammer desk challenge if you would like to see what the show is all about…
