"i can shoot cheese out of my eyes"
« on: December 02, 2008, 11:39:06 PM »
i just want to say that for whatever reason, the way that caller said that made me laugh uncontrollably for about 10 minutes. i think it's one of the most brilliant things i've heard in a long time and i have absolutely no clue why. i don't even fully remember the rest of the call, other than it was about kids talking about superpowers. i need to listen to the archive to hear it in context again. but yeah, whoever this kid was that thought this up, he is a true genius.

The only line I can compare it to is:  "More pizza, slave!"
For me, it was a similar reaction.

Thanks, Paul.  That was me.  Or should I say, that was my son.  I had a similar response to yours when my son said it.  But in that case, I think my son's feelings were hurt by my laughter because he had no idea how insane it was.

A friend of mine recently told me that her three-year-old daughter lays her head down on the table and weeps uncontrollably when she's offered mashed potatoes or bread. 

In other words, kids are weird.

I guess she would not respond well to the Scharpling cold remedy: mashed potato sandwich.

Yes, I instantly thought of Owen when my friend told me the story.  That conversation between Tom and the bore formerly known as No-Smoking Joe is one of my favorite Best Show moments.

P.S.  Ike's daughter is weird, too.

Hey Jon, I made you some art. Don't show it to your son if he's too young for that.

What a crazy thing for a kid to say, yet how awesome!

...WOW.
He's this soulless bastard from Siberia. I once saw him shove Fred Savage's face in a toilet.

Oh my god.  That is amazing! The beanie! The cheese on the finger!

It is going over our mantelpiece.  Thank you, Regular Joe!

That is a helluva* super power!  Perhaps it's less than ideal for fighting crime, but you'd be a big hit at parties!

The boy is at risk of being kidnapped by fondue enthusiasts, though.  (I see another picture:  a bunch of slavering cheese fiends squatting around the kid's prone body, dipping cubes of bread into his eye sockets.)
