Myspace Time Capsule Vol. 6

I decided I wasn't quite ready to start back again after completing the A to Z challenge. Thusly I present you with another of my many unseen posts from the days of Myspace Blogging.

Oct. 21, 2008

Earlier today -hmmm, yesterday...
Earlier yesterday I was thinking over how phrases can take on different meanings, just by changing who is saying them. Since I'm all about sharing, I now present you with some.

First the phrase, then two people, and what they mean when they say it.

"Have you seen this boy?"
Milk carton: Missing child.
Robert Patrick: I need to kill him.

"You've got mail!"
Generic Email account: You've got mail.
Unibomber: Boom.

"Bob's Your Uncle"
An englishman: And there you go.
Your Aunt Maggie: Bob is your uncle.

"Open wide and say aw."
Doctor: I need to see the back of your throat
Catholic Preist: ...yeah I better not go there.

"Can I make you dinner?"
Girl/guy you're dating: A romantic offer of a nice meal and nicer company.
Cannibal: Screw company.

"Don't do anything I wouldn't do."
Steve the creepy guy at the office who always looks a little pervy: Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.
Jesus: Seriously, don't do anything I wouldn't do.

Context is a funny thing.
That's all I have at the moment. If you have one, feel free to impart.


  1. You crack me up!!!!

  2. loved the last one and the Bob's your uncle one. "but aunt maggie, I thought you said joe was my uncle."

  3. These are super funny! Loved "Don't do anything I wouldn't do"....it had me bowled over, too funny.

  4. (= HAHA! The last one was my fave. Context really is everything.

  5. You were even funny back in '08? Fabulous!

  6. Ha ha...pretty good!

    Here's a lame one:

    She's hot.
    Teenage guy: Wants to get into her pants.
    Mom: Poor thing's burning up with a fever.

  7. Wow! This is like the director's cut for A to Z.

  8. you might warn a girl...I almost choked on my pizza roll when I read the "open wide and say aw"! lol

    If there was a way to tie a creepy perv and Jesus together, I can always count on you to pull out all the stops. Nice one.

    I can comment again! It's the simple things in life...

  11. "Open wide" and "Have you seen this boy" are my favorite. Context IS everything.

  12. don't do anything I wouldn't do

  13. First and last...can I say LOL, pretty please? humour never dies it just shape shifts from my space to mono space.

  14. I like that I can like this post, cause I do!

    And I feel Aunt Maggie ought to participate in Star Wars.
    "Luke, I am your father."
    "And Bob's your uncle."

  15. This may be an oldie, but it's a good one!
    Oh those zany catholics!

  16. These were great. They reminded me of when my dad used to say, "The trashcan is full."  Of course that meant that we had to stop dismembering the bodies until the garbage truck came.
