Things That Make Me Snarf: Strongbad

And now for another exciting episode of Things That Make Me Snarf!

Unfortunately, this one's not on YouTube, so you're going to have to leave The Wonder That Is My Blog to get there. But it's worth it to see a little cartoon guy say:

Trevor, I pine for you.

This has got me started thinking about funny ways to complete unfinished lines, and thus I bring you the Carrie Harris version of Trevor the Vampire. Because Carrie does it novel style.

Sorry. I've been researching Snoop Dogg lyrics for my WIP. Yeah, I know. I think I'm crazy too.

Anyway, here's the deal. I've got some famous lines from literature, only I'm rewriting them a little. Got any that are better than mine?

From Pride and Prejudice:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune... needs a lawyer with experience in prenups, and in the case of Donald Trump, a new haircut.

From Hamlet:
To be or not to be... that pretty much covers all the options.

From Love Story:
Love means never having to say... hey, gimme my bra back!

From Moby Dick:
I am... Kartoffelsalat. My middle name is Wayne, though, so you'd best think things through before you laugh at me.

From Ender's Game:
The enemy's gate is... a complete waste of our freaking time since they keep screwing with the rules, so let's go eat some Pop Tarts instead.

From Green Eggs and Ham:
I do not like green eggs and ham... because duh, they're moldy.

Okay, it's early but how about:

A rose by any other name is still a rose........even if you put lipstick on it.


Thanks for the morning chuckles!

Jim: Because I put lipstick on roses all the time. LOL! Actually my neighbor spray paints them. While they're still on the plant. Strange. Very strange.

Great job of arranging these; I DID laugh the most on the last one.

Carrie Harris said...

Thanks, PJ. I can't decide which one I like the best.

Brenda, there are a BUNCH of them on that site. Trevor the Vampire has always been my favorite, tho. And thanks again for the award. :)

Aaron and Cate, you're lovely and snarftacular. Thanks! :)

Marcia, so that's two votes for Green Eggs and Ham, huh? :)

Too bad Snoop Dog's Shizzolator is off the web. You could have converted your entire MS!

Fo shizzle ma nizzle.

Carrie Harris said...

Ah, the Shizzolator. Let us bow our heads in silence. Now THAT's something that made me snarf!

Tiny T said...

I love Hamlet and Strongbad, as well as, Green Eggs and Ham!! They made me laugh.

What about:

Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral of the Galaxy lies... uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral of the Galaxy. Did you not just listen to yourself?

-From Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy


Though I must admit, I lack in the humor department, so feel free to change the quote to make it better :)

Carrie Harris said...

SNARF! Love the Hitchhiker's one. How could I have missed that?
