Hypothetical Question



Hypothetically speaking, let's say you are at an Eighties themed dance party with your child, and it's all adults except for your child, and there is an Eighties trivia contest, and NO ONE IN THE ROOM KNOWS THE NAME OF THE EXCHANGE STUDENT IN "16 CANDLES."

Is it wrong to whisper it to your child and have her scream out LONG DUK DONG to win a prize?

Also, if you are in a room full of adults and NO ONE IN THE ROOM KNOWS THE NAME OF THE EXCHANGE STUDENT IN "16 CANDLES," is it wrong to feel completely superior and wonder WHAT THE HELL KIND OF LOSERS they all must be?

Sheesh.

And lastly, if your husband gets all torqued because you're CHEATING and setting a BAD EXAMPLE because your child wins a prize for screaming out LONG DUK DONG, would it be wrong to say...
Relax, would you? We have seventy dollars and a pair of girls underpants. We're safe as kittens.'

If what you did was wrong, I don't want to be right.

LONG DUK DONG!! Awesome.

It would not be wrong. In fact, it would be the EXACT RIGHT thing to do. Also, it would be socially correct to say, "Boo-yah!" loudly when you win.

Those were some lame ass adults at that party, that's all I've got to say.

I would even have told my kid to quote the grandma who said "Fred, she's gotten her boobies."

A prize is a prize and there is no shame in knowing "Sixteen Candles" inside & out.

You know, I was just last night tossing and turning and excoriating myself for forgetting the lines to the pivotal scene in Say Anything at the Gas'n'Sip.

So I think you'd know which way I'd vote in this poll.

"No more yanky my wanky, the donger needs food." One of the greatest movies ever made! I would have done the same thing!

So NOT wrong. Wrong is attending an 80s themed party and not knowing Long Duk Dong. Molly Ringwold is spinning in her grave.

Oh, well you know what I mean.

Keetha said...

Absolutely not. Congrats to her for winning the prize.
