Just Because It's a Hot Monday in July-



[The thing I love most about blogging is the discussion that goes on in the 'comments' section afterwards. This video ended up giving us the following poem, written by Cissy Strutt, based on a phrase invented by Phoebe Fay!]

It took me by surprise
And just like that
I fell in the water
Waddle waddle thwack splat

I thought my stroll
would be a doddle
no thwack or splat
to disturb my waddle

For impersonating Nuns
I have a knack
but every so often
I feel that thwack

Is someone saying
I am too fat?
To put a thwack
In my waddle waddle splat?

In the simple days
A waddle was just that.
Not a waddle waddle
Waddle waddle
Waddle thwack
Splat

Waddle waddle
Waddle waddle
Waddle
Thwack
Splat

I think that's s what I'm going to title my autobiography someday.

I just can't stop watching this. It's kind of addictive.

Sara Sue said...

That is just as cute as it can be! Think it's edited??

Phoebe- Suddenly I want more than anything to start a band called Waddle Waddle Thwack Splat.

Mike- it is oddly mezmerising, isn't it? I do the same thing.

Sara- I'm sure it's not- I found it on the internet, so it must be true.

I've always loved that .gif.

Also, I could use an icy splash right about now. I could do without the smack to the back of the head preceding it, though.

Cissy Strutt said...

I've been staring at it for precious minutes of my life. Aah! precious minutes.

Catalyst said...

Those nuns are so cute but so forceful!

Sara Sue said...

NUNS!! That's it! That's what it reminds me of! Thank you, Catalyst.

Colonel Colonel said...

Kaytie- A neighbor has a pool and has become so enthused by that .gif that she is buying 3 tons of crushed ice as I write...

Cissy- Now I've got Gollum's voice crying "preeeecious penguins" in my head.

Joey- well, we are a low-budget blog, I'm afraid.

Sara & Catalyst- Perfect! Catalyst is the Winner!

Actually, I think it reminds me of my husband's appointment with the doctor today. Been considering slapping him like this every time he whines in pain.

Colonel Colonel said...

Mybrid- makes sense to me- and this is why I do not have children.
