DON’T think we didn’t have something completely Snarky for you on this fine Friday, because we did. We really did. But that was before we remembered today was the first of the month, and you know what that means. That’s right, it’s time to wish you all Rabbit, Rabbit, as has become our monthly habit, habit since we first started this blog.

OF COURSE, considering what month this happens to be the first of, what better Rabbit, Rabbit than one that looks like an adorable 9 year old boy in a pink bunny suit? We’re hard pressed to think anyone who’s ever received a crappy gift from a well-meaning relative won’t appreciate the humor and/or charm of this scene. For some of us, it’s reminiscent of the time our teenaged sons got Barney sheets from their grandma. Talk about trauma.

angry alien christmas storyAIEEEEE! What were we saying about trauma? Well, believe it or not, we’re feeling some of our own right now, as the clever video we hoped to share won’t load up. Not only that, but all the other clever videos we’ve seen fit to share over the past few days won’t load up, either. In the words of our dear friend, ACTONBELL, “This is Suck”. Still, we wouldn’t want to deny anyone the right to the hilarious imagery we had in our own heads, so we tried to find a good PICTURE of the Ralphie in his pink bunny suit. As is our lot today, we had as much success with that as we did getting that stupid freaking video to load. But we did find the next best thing, a picture of the Angry Aliens Production of A CHRISTMAS STORY, (the above bunny within a pink bunny suit), which we think works out nicely. Actually, we don’t, but at this point, we don’t really give a rabbit’s ass. To tell you the truth, we were sorely tempted to put on our own freakin’ bunny suit and take a picture of ourselves, but quickly realized that wouldn’t be good for anyone.

AFTER ALL THIS, if any of you are inclined to watch the original “boy in a bunny suit” scene from the original A CHRISTMAS STORY, feel free to do so, RIGHT HERE. Honestly, no matter how many times we see that scene with Ralphie in those pink jammies, it never fails to crack us up. Poor kid. No wonder he wanted a gun. After all the crap we went through this morning trying to do this stupid post, we want one, too.

OKAY, enough of the Rabbit, Rabbit, tee hee, cutsie crap. But before we let you go, and in order to further entertain you with something very cute and not at all crappy, allow us to direct your attention HERE, where you may feast your eyes on the wonder and glory that is… CATTY YUMMY MUMMY. No matter how many times we watch this newest video, it never fails to crack us up. Except the part where dear Miz BoheMia is getting waxed, because, well, that’s not funny. (maybe it’s a little funny, but don’t tell her we said that.)

i have no freaking idea what’s going on with these videos. do any of you guys have thoughts as to what’s goin’ on here? such a thing poses a serious threat to our ability to continue providing you with the high caliber of entertainment you’ve come to expect and/or we’ve come to rely upon. i mean, what if we have to start writing again? oy. xoxo

I’m pretty sure it’s a conspiracy of some sort, most likely with ties to the axis of evil…but I’m not sure. Since we have watched “A Christmas Story” no less than hundreds of times the image of Ralphie in the pink bunny suit is forever burned into my memory…great moment in that surprising classic. Rabbit, Rabbit one and all and congrats to one Miz Bohemia for “winning” the fight to get Tigerlily home where she belongs! As for the waxing…ouch.

In the “Is NOTHING Sacred?” department, they turned the house from the movie into a museum:


Its in Cleveland. Maybe we can organize a bus trip?

Comment by Al

BoBo: watching that movie is one of our earliest holiday “traditions” — and i never get tired of it. Rabbit, Rabbit! since you were able to go back to work today (after that prolonged 2-day illness) it would seem “rabbit, rabbit” has already worked it magic! xox

Al: i know! what’s even more odd (funny? interesting?) is the fact that the house was initially offered on ebay. but the guy who purchased it wanted it so badly, he went to the sellers and convinced them to sell it to him. then he bought the house across the street, in order to open up a gift shop. i’m sure this is exactly what Jean Shepherd had in mind when he first wrote the story. thanks for that link! xox

Little known fact…Snuppy and I used to live in Cleveland. And…we liked it.

Comment by BoBo

You and Snuppy lived on the Mistake on the Lake??

Its Dec. 1st so that means I can take out the advent calendar and let Thea eat candy every day. I’ve seen the calendar move a few times now…. and can tell that a certain little girl has already been in it but thanks to the magic of mom she can wonder just how that calender can get refilled!

Once upon a time my sister and I were in that play…. πŸ™‚ Those were the days!!

Comment by cj

Sorry to just run through, but I’ve got my coat flapping, cupcakes in the bag and I’m off to school for yet another celebration!

Have a great day Snarksters. This is one of my favorite movies so I will check this out later when “calm” or a reasonable facsimile thereof settles back into our The Lampshade Household. πŸ˜‰

Comment by Lampy

CJ…we did indeed…went there expecting to hate it based on its bad rep, but ended up really liking it. Great neighborhoods!

Comment by BoBo

I was a buckeye and once went there on a weekend to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with some buddies. I just loved the nickname!

Comment by cj

BoBo: liked it? we LOVED it. seriously folks, Cleveland is a *very* cool place to live. or was. xox

CJ: and what roles did the two of you play? (and how fun is that!) πŸ™‚ xox

Lampy: from the looks of things around here, you’re not missing much. ah well… at least we’re being abandoned (for the most part) on a “slow news day”. hope Tali’s school party went well! xox

for anyone who wondered and/or cares, i checked one of the WordPress forums, and apparently the YouTube problem does have something to do with that maintenance they did the other day. they say they’re working on it… let’s hope for their sakes, they are! (who are we to complain? free service doesn’t afford us many rights, does it? still…)

Comment by snuppy snuppy

This is a conspiracy indeed! I am sure of it. But I just came in to sign up for the bus trip that Al’s organizing.

All the little kids growing up on the skids
go Cleveland Rocks! Cleveland Rocks!

Not that I’ve ever been, but I like the song.

Have a good night all. xox

Comment by Lampy

I love A Christmas Story.

That’s all I got today. tired.

Oh yeah…I’m pouting.


Comment by Little Blue Pill

Dios mio how late am I???? All the Snarksters are snoozing away as I awaken to children jumping atop my head… took them 2 houra to wake me though, I kid you not! I am narcoleptic these days and then some… which is why I didn’t comment earlier. I sat on the couch with my laptop, read along, and then awoke an hour later… ay!

LOVED the links dearest Snuppy de mi corazon and was flattered by the one to mine… muchas gracias!

By the by… I missed you yesterday too!!!! Around 4pm your time but left no message because I am starting to feel like a stalker! Aayayayayayayaaa! πŸ˜‰

I hope it means you were out and about because you were feeling BETTER!!! WOOD to that! BEsos and goodnight all Snarksters! Sweet dreams…

Comment by Catty Yummy Mummy

OH DIOS!!! That was supposed to say WOOH… NOT WOOD!

Comment by Miz BoheMia

LBP: fortunately, you look cute when you pout. but don’t make a habit of it, you’re young now, but in a few years too much pouting could force you into an expensive Botox habit. πŸ™‚ xox

Miz B: “wooh” or “wood” or “whatever”… thank you — everyone in our household is much better! as for missing you call??? AIEEEEEE!! i sent you a note and hope we can figure out how NOT to let that happen again, mi amiga! (seriously, i can’t believe i missed you…)

i’m sorry your little ones saw fit to bounce on your lovely BoheMian brains this morning — as for falling asleep while reading one of my posts? i’m willing to bet you aren’t the first, nor will you be the last! love and besos to you, dear friend! xox

Comment by snuppy

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! It wasn’t to say that I fell asleep while reading your post!!!!!!! I just fall asleep everywhere these days… almost happened while driving, happens when the kids jump on me, I sit for 5 seconds on the floor and within minutes I am passed out… has even happened when I have attempted to write and your post had been read, I was poised to answer and voila… narcoleptic ways and narcoleptic days… it is my body’s way of dealing with the stress as well as the exhaustion… oh well! But NOT because of your post!!! DIOS MIO!!!!
