Do You Know Your Products?

By
April 22nd, 2010



So to piggyback on phrases.... wat about product slogans?

While you may or may not use da product, da "jingle" or their catch phrase is always floating around somewea in your coconut shell. Most times we don't remembah it by heart but wen we just hea those few words, da light bulb goes off and you know da product.

I guess dat's da catch of it yeah?   😉 

I'm surah we all know da Oscar Mayer jingle cause it's catchy and da first thing dat pops into your mind is..... bologna. There are a few oddahs dat I'm surah is running around in your noggin' as we speak so let's get those down in a post.  😉  😉

Go ahead and post a slogan or jingle for someone else to answer. Now I know everyone doesn't read da oddah 17 posts prior and there may be duplicate answers..... so wat? Jus' keep 'em going, no mattah if two different people wen answer already, if you know da answer 'den answer.   😀  No scade now.

Hopefully we can all share our useless information dat's been burned into our memory banks by commericals, radio and print advertising...... let's see if it worked for them.  

btw, for surah I'm getting to reply to da past few blogs by weekend's end - been choke busy.   🙁 

I'll start da game..............

"Mmmm... mmmm... good"

How'd They Come Up Wit Dat?

By
April 21st, 2010



A closet Kwonic had emailed me yesterday and it stirred up an idea. (I've yet to reply to any posts - will get to it tonight but some of those places are definitely on my "review" list already)

Back on topic.

We use phrases and proverbs in everyday speech and sometimes I wondered who da heck made it up or "how" da heck did it get made up?

Take for instance yesterday's "bear to eat". Wat da heck does dat really mean? We use dat phrase in a negative context but did it come from a bear dat didn't want to eat? If it was an animal dat eats anything but didn't for some reason and someone witnessed it.... why didn't they coin da phrase wit anoddah animal dat eats anything like "I can't shark to eat"?

Wat about phrases like "birds of a feather, flock together" or "a friend in need is a friend indeed". Why they nevah just say, "those frickin' punks" or "you da bestest", respectively.

How's about "a stitch in time saves nine"....... wat da heck does dat mean? Or "cheaters never prosper" - I would have just said "take him out back and kick his okole!".

And just for da MLCer's in da crowd..... "life begins at 40" - is dat really true?  😛 

Wat are your favorite phrases or catch phrases you use commonly? Have you evah wondered how a popular phrase came about? Got any WWD! musings on any phrase?   😉  We got alot of local phrases too.... how did dat all start? Got any of your own? But beware, once posted, it's on "permanent borrow".    😀

Best Hamburgah?

By
April 20th, 2010



Last week Da Wife made these mini Korean hamburgahs dat had au' kine ingrediments inside.

I eat practically anything - or will try at least once... most times - but there are some things I won't/can't eat. Most Thai, Filipino (except lumpia), most Vietnamese foods are da ones I mostly stay away from but one ingrediment I can't bear to eat is ginger.

Yeah, yeah. I'm Korean and don't like ginger......

Wassap Wit Dat!    🙄 

But even if there's a hint of it, I can tell.

BL:     *coming home from practice and taking whiffs from da door* "Mmmmm. Dat smells good Babe! You making hamburgahs?"
DA WIFE:     "Yup."
BL:     *rush in to take showah and then make a plate*  "Mmm....mm....m? Babe.... get ginger inside?"
DA WIFE:     "Yes, the recipe called for it. It's only a little, it won't kill you."
BL:     *Da Wife knows I no like ginger but nevah like tell me so I give her a look* 
DA WIFE:     *Gives back a meaner look*
BL:     "Mmmmm..... tastes gooood Babe!"   *BL adds more ketchup*

Wenevah we go out and grab hamburgah steak, loco moco or anything "hamburgah" - Da Wife and I both agree dat "store made" kine no can even compare to homemade kine but I'd say da take out kine places is fifty-fifty -  sometimes store bought, sometimes homemade.

But even da homemade kine might not cut da grade so WWD! wants to know....

Wea's da best take-out hamburgah's you've eaten? Whether it be a plate lunch or a hamburgah deluxe - gotta be one place da broke da mouth for you. And no, since we get choke mainland readers too, can be mainland places too cause you nevah know wen da 808 peeps may be up there.   😉 

Wat kine ingrediments DON'T you like? Whether it be a cheeseburgah deluxe hold da cheese or no onions - wat makes you a picky eater?

Go on........ no scade and share! I need some help to get ovah my hamburgah munchies.    😉

Of Course Gotta Be WWD!

By
April 19th, 2010



My bike has been laid up da past few weeks and aftah some research and self diagnosing da problem, I found out it was an ignition coil.

Funny thing about bike parts - most "easy" parts to either bling out or make your bike fastah is readily available by both original equipment manufacturers (OEM) or aftah market companies.

Da parts you need to keep your bike running "properly" (not MacGyver kine) is only available by da original equipment manufacturers which is sold by da dealers and you know wat dat means...... CHA-CHING $$$.

I called da ONLY dealer dat had it: $90.

Now I thought dat was a fairly decent price considering da part but aftah finding out dat "they" suggest I replace all four of 'em I needed a defibrillator to shock me back to coherence.

Back to da computah. I found a few at $70 but wit shipping it still came out only a little cheapah. Then I found a dealer - yes, a dealer - dat had it for $52!  😯  Man, I was on it like flies on doo-doo! I found out latah too dat I didn't need all four so I ended up getting parts to upgrade my front brakes and new spark plugs as well. In da end, I saved myself around $125 even wit shipping!

So yesterday I finally decided to take kea of it.

If you've evah worked on your own vehicle, you know dat taking things apart is fairly easy.... putting 'em back together is da problem.   🙄   You end up either having "extra" parts or needing "extra" parts cause some thing broke.

Aftah seven hours of working on da bike, I was down to my last three bolts and I was done...... problem was - there were only two holes.

$heesh-kabobs!!!  (you can guess wat I really said)

Well at least because of the type of bolts they were I knew wat/wea they went. One, I couldn't find da puka it was "supposed" to go in. It holds my plastic to da frame of da bike and I checked every inch and all da pukas had a bolt in 'em. Oh well, "extra" now.

Da last two bolts were to hold my seat. I started on one side and ratcheted it down. Started on da oddah side and ratcheted it down.

Hmmm, felt a little funny.

Unratch it. Ok, unratch it. OK, UNRATCH IT.

Awww $%#%^&*@!#$%^&!@#$%^*@!#$%^*!

I was literally done and I stripped da last two bolts!?!

Wassap Wit Dat!

For those of you who don't know wat dat means, basically no mattah wat you do da screw just spins and spins and you can't take 'em out or put 'em in. It's a pain in da okole to get 'em out and even more of a pain to frickin' fix 'em! At least da seat is locked down and I don't need to do anything in there... for now.

I took her out for a late night spin and she runs like a champ.   😀 

Now aftah all dat, da cheapest part is going be my mad MacGyver skills to remove and replace those two bolts..... which I'll nevah strip again.  😉 

Got any repair mo'olelo or mana'o to share?

A Good Start To FGF

By
April 16th, 2010



You know how WWD! rolls. We can be hashing things out, agree to disagree, share our mana'o but on Feel Good Friday, we gotta feel good for da weekend.

I get one test (from a Lurkah) and one joke (from anoddah Lurkah). I'm betting you'll enjoy both.   😀 

 

HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT?

This is hysterical. You have to try this. It is absolutely true. I guess there are some things that the brain cannot handle.

It only takes 2 seconds and was administered by an orthopaedic surgeon. This will confuse your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It is pre-programmed in your brain!

1. While sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.

I told you so! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

 

*** DISCLAIMER - Dis is only a joke. WWD! is not responsible for any food or beverages being spit up on clothing or office equipment *** 

A man escapes from prison where he has been for 15 years. He breaks into a house to look for money and guns and finds a young couple in bed.

He orders the guy out of bed and ties him to a chair, while tying the girl to the bed he gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom. While he's in there, the husband tells his wife:

"Listen, this guy's an escaped convict, look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail and hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck." If he wants sex, don't resist, don't complain, do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very dangerous. If he gets angry, he'll kill us. Be strong, honey. I love you."

To which his wife responds: "He wasn't kissing my neck. He wwas whispering in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked me if we had any vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love you too!!"

Share 'em if you got 'em!

Happy Feel Good Friday everybodies!!!
