Looney Tunes

I think I am going to devote Tuesday to silly things. I will call it "Looney Tunes Tuesday." I am going to try to put some structure into my blog and this will be the first day with a theme. It stands to reason that I start out with Looney Tunes Tuesday because my DW thinks I am off my rocker for blogging and my kids always wonder about my sanity.

Favorite cartoon:

My favorite character is Foghorn Leghorn. I often quote lines from his cartoons and use them in real life. "I say, I say son, I'm not a chicken. That's a chicken." (pointing to the sleeping dog with a fake comb on his head) I guess the reason I like him is that he tends to be so sarcastic and I am the same way. I also love his southern accent which I can relate to. I consider myself southern even though I don't have an accent. Anyway, it amuses my sons when I imitate him so I keep doing it. "one of these days I'm gonna smack that boy."

The Weather Channel is wrong:

They were wrong on the hurricane predictions last year and so far they are wrong on the lack of rain. We have had more rain so far this year than I can remember in January's past. I would hate to be a weather man. Most of them look goofy. Usually the anchor men and women have fun with them and joke about them. They try to take credit for the good weather and then get blamed when them screw up the prediction. They also have to try to make something out of nothing as you really can't predict the weather. It's just an educated guess based on a bunch of facts about past weather.

Speaking of weather:

I did see where there were tornadoes last night. I have always been afraid of them since seeing the Wizard of Oz as a child. I once had one pass within a block of me but never saw it because it was raining so hard. I did hear it though and it was pretty scary. I have a theory about tornadoes though. They are caused by the wake from alien space ships. You know when a jet passes they cause a whirlwind as they speed by and these space ships do the same thing. The aliens aren't dumb so they use clouds to hide in and that is why the tornadoes are usually accompanied by a storm. Here is why I think my theory is true.

Ask yourself who sees the most spaceships? The answer is people that live in trailer parks. Its true, I am not making this up. Now ask yourself, where do tornadoes usually hit? That's right trailer parks again. So I believe that these aliens are spying on trailer parks. (no particular reason they just know that sometimes there is a lot of interesting activity going on there.) After they get in close, they get spotted and have to exit in a hurry and accidentally cause tornadoes. See it is all making sense now. And you thought I was nuts. Next time, I may tell my theory on what causes lightening.

Have a great day,

I'm laughing out loud, repeating Foghorn Leghorn's line to myself. Thanks for the good start to the day! Have a great one!

Celticspirit said...

That's an interesting theory about how tornadoes are formed.;) You'd get along very well with my better half since he has an unusual interest in Aliens.

Weather...do you ever watch that weather man Larry Sprinkle? He's on the nbc channel. He's a riot. Very fitting name too and I often wonder if it's his real name.

I love Looney tunes. So much better than many of the newer cartoons of today.

I love Foghorn...and you are as silly as my good friend Skinny Guy (look on my sidebar)...maybe it's something to do with the water in the Atlantic.lol

Christianne said...

Oooh, my hub loves Foghorn Leghorn and often quotes his lines to me, too. This is especially hilarious to me, as I didn't know Foghorn Leghorn until he started quoting me his lines! One of his favorites: "I say, that boy's about as smart as a bowling ball!"

PS: What does DW mean?

Janice Thomson said...

Oh too good Greg! I look forward to
Looney Tunes Tuesdays. Great writing!
I always liked Foghorn Leghorn too.

Queenie said...

Great theory on the weather Greg. I love Foghorn also, we have a soap here called Coronation Street, a character who use to be in it (the local Landlord and butcher)I swear copied Foghorns sayings.

Patty said...

You are just too funny. Like the trailer park/spaceship/tornado theory.

Wanda said...

Ha Ha Ha, I'm laughing too. He must be a lot of our favorites. Foghorn is just to human. And Greg, I really do think you look like him. (((Son, that's a compliment)))
You theory on Tornados makes perfect sense.
You can bet I'll be back on Tuesdays!!!! Great idea.

Wanda said...

Greg...I don't want you to think I'll only come back on Tuesdays...You know I'm a regular!!

Kim S in SC said...

Greg: Just wanted you to know how much I will treasure your comment today on my blog! Thank you! Praise HIM!

Gardener Greg said...

I am so glad I shed some light in each or your days. (in more ways than one) Keep smiling. Don't you just love to smile?

Susan Kelly Skitt said...

Oh, good old Foghorn Leghorn. Do you know how they came up with his name? I don't, just curious if you knew.

Sounds like Silly Tuesday's are a good idea. And about blogging? I was told on vacation this summer by my family that I was not aloud to mention the word "blog" once.

I guess people, our loved ones included, don't quite get it. Oh well, we all have varying interests and hobbies. That's what makes people so interesting!

Have a great day!

My family thinks I'm nuts, too! I always get the comments "What are you gonna 'blog' that?" or "_____ did the funniest thing today. I would've taken a picture, but I knew you would just blog it, so I thought I'd save their dignity." Truth is... I don't blog everything. I think of so many things that I would like to blog about, but really only do about 1/3 of it.

I like your new themes.
