hell-bound writerOY. We’ll probably wind up in some kind of blogger’s hell for this, but, as we confirmed last week (or was it the week before, we forget) some of you will, no doubt, be down there with us, so what the, um heck, at least we won’t be alone.

LAST week (or was it the week before, we forget) our NBFF suggested we consider doing the occasional “rerun”, in order to — how shall we put this delicately? — relieve ourselves of the, er, duty (heh, we said “dooty”) of writing an actual post of our own, once in a while. At the time we thought it was a fantastic idea. Mostly because we’re so damn lazy, but also because many of our “new” friends have never been exposed (heh) to some of the madcap humor that made this place what it is today: mad… crap. (golly, we know many good words, too bad we can’t think of them when we’re in the process of plagiarizing ourselves for the sake of your amusement and/or our laziness).

NOW, where were we before we stopped putting words into our own mouths… oh yeah, reruns. What can we say? We thought the concept of recycling a post from time to time was brilliant, and couldn’t wait for the “perfect” opportunity to do it. Enter a sick loved one, a sense of panic over having to follow CRUMMYJOEL and TEH PENGUIN with a little something of our own — then toss in our ability to search high and low (very low) through our archives — and voilΓ‘, clever rerun, thy name is Yatta!

ALL this to say: here’s a somewhat revised version of a post we thought was fun, and might have offered up as a “musical opposite for the sake of cheap laughs” on Monday, before GRUNDIR THE IMPLACABLE’S book-pimping alter-ego showed up and dazzled us with something sort of hilarious, and all “musical opposite” bets were off. Today they — like strategically placed fig leaves — are back on(ish) again.

***** ***** ***** *****

PERHAPS you’ve heard that some of us have grown children who still live at home (you know who we are). Well, sometimes, the aforementioned grown children force us to watch utter and complete, tho’ highly entertaining (to our way of thinking) silliness, and, much as we hate to admit it, the following video falls into that category. Now, before anyone click “play”, be warned: the clip features a group of semi-naked men (perhaps we should have saved this for tomorrow?) known as “Green Leaves”, singing and dancing to an extremely catchy tune (think: Village People/Y.M.C.A.). Rather than let us explain the point and/or purpose of their prancy-dancy ways, we’d like to suggest reading THIS ARTICLE, which gives a good enough explanation (as well as one set of possible lyrics) for the performance. Then, if you’re game, and not afraid of having the tune bounce around inside your heads all day, watch this bunch of questionably developed guys shake their collective bootays and/or fig-leaves.*

OF COURSE, after properly digesting the first video, you may want to consider viewing THIS, which is funny only because it’s a parody of the other one, which is a parody of “boy band” videos, to begin with. Come to think of it, that’s not just funny, it’s downright hilarious. Don’t you agree? Please say “yes”, otherwise there’ll be no telling what our son will force us to view next.

*Try to remember these guys are part of a Japanese comedy team, and this song was actually written/performed as a statement on the current economic conditions in Japan (probably the reason it’s now such a huge hit over there). So, technically, it’s smart. Cheesy, sure… but in a pretty darn smart — not to mention humorous and-did-we-mention-catchy? — way. Yatta!

NO, this isn’t a cheesy attempt to get outta writing a post for Sex, Ed? tomorrow — just an attempt to get outta writing an actual post today share some of the “funny” that’s been featured here, in the past. besides, this video is freaking hilarious, and even if you’ve seen it before, it deserves a second peek. (some of these puns are worse than you can imagine if you’ve yet to watch these guys perform)

as for my darling BoBo? the good news is that he’s feeling better. the bad news is that we still don’t know what was causing his discomfort. we’re guessing a mild case of food poisoning — tho’ not really all that “mild”, because trust me when i tell you my baby was in some serious pain night before last and all day yesterday. whatev, he’s back at work, and tells me he’ll be okay. that said, i’ve got his assistant keeping her eye on him — one wince and he is SO going to see a doctor. anyway — thanks to you all for your very kind words and lovely good wishes. they meant more to us than you can imagine. πŸ™‚

Comment by One Hot Puppy

Glad stubborn BoBo is feeling better. What a trooper, sick as a… err, puppy, and right back to work. πŸ˜€

Comment by Brian

I’ve had food poisoning a few times, and it pretty much makes you want to die. Glad he’s feeling better.

As for the video: Not nearly as disturbing as The Wiggles.

Comment by Grundir the Implacable

I think you should have called this post “Yatta Yatta Yatta”. Ooh, bad pun but you know I’m just feeling silly go lucky. I’ll look forward to seeing them prance and preen later on.

Glad to hear Bobo’s on the mend. But food poisoning – mild or not, is no fun! Send him our love!


Comment by Lampsha

Dios mio! If this is you when you are not writing a post then… *sigh* You put this out-of-the-loop bohemian to shame oh funny, witty and utterly faboo amiga mia!

I am chuckling at Lampsha’s suggestion for a title… me likey FO SHO!

As for your dear Bobo of the Banjoey clan, oy! SO sorry to hear he has been in so much pain! I had a horrible case of food poisoning once (back when I lived in a gypsy hostal in Madrid, 11 damn years ago… DAMN because that means I am so much OLDER now… blah!) when I was served a bad tortilla sandwich (ie: an omelette baguette sandwich)… I had diarrhea and vomited to the point of extreme dehydration and the damn bastards at the hospital took 12 hours before they administed the much needed IV… some blood was even coughed up and the only reason they got to me was because my mother flew up from the south and gave them hell… so I have been there and done that with food poisoning and I FEEL FOR YA MY DEAR AMIGO BOBO!

Here’s wishing that your sweet love be on the mend my dearest Nevalicious Snuppy de mi corazΓ³n and that all else be utterly faboo on the homefront!

Besos to all as I exit, laughing away FO SHO at all things laughable contained in this fantabulous post…

And with that…


BoheMia OUT!

Comment by Catty Yummy Mummy

Ya Yatta like’m. They’re a hoot!

Like Bobo is better. A better bobo is what it’s all about.

Comment by TLP

Brian: a’yup, that BoBo is a stu… er, trouper, and that’s a fact! πŸ˜‰

Grundir: i’m hoping it was food poisoning — still not convinced the isn’t something organic going on. ah well — i’m pretty sure you and i have much more important things to discuss — like how soon can you do that meme for the Snark? (nice shout out to “G” today, too — i lovelovelove seeing my NBFF get such well-deserved and nice attention) πŸ™‚

Lampsha: hahahahahaha. and damn. why didn’t i think of that? oy. must have been my nerves and/or lack of creativity due to my overwrought concern for my poor little honey. NEXT time… surely these guys will come out (heh) with something Yatta Yatta Yatta worthy in the future, Shirley! πŸ˜‰

CYM: AMIGA!! hola! i do believe i’ve missed a couple of your calls, and for that i must apologize. (even as i whine because i adore talking to you, sweet friend!) i’ve been in a crazed haze over the past few… days. (how ’bout that, i’m a crappy poet, and i wish we didn’t know it). as for YOUR bout with food-poisoning??? DIOS MIO, BOHEMIA! yowza. fortunately, BoBo’s discomfort didn’t manifest itself in quite that fashion, which is why we feared it was appendicitis (our youngest had similar symptoms, and wound up under the knife hours later). it’s just unsettling, because he’s rarely sick — so when he stays home, i know it’s because he feels reallyREALLY bad. but today’s another day, and he seems to be on the “mend”. (guess we’ll be eatin’ rice for the next couple of days… oy). πŸ™‚

TLP: i hoped you’d remember this goofy group. yeah, they ARE pretty damn funny. skinny guys in fig leaves — what’s not to like?? and thanks SO much for the sweet thoughts regarding BoBo, sister/girlfriend! it meant a lot to both of us!! 😎

Comment by snuppy

Oh my…that’s an ear-wurm I’ll take on my trip. hell…afer sufficient lubriication I might even sing it tonight around the BBQ:)

Yatta, yatta….yattahhhhhhhhhh….ya!

that was a weird, but at the same time hilarious. Is it just me or can you imagine a japanese girl looking at these guys and thinking HOT STUFF! Really? Weird!

Comment by Penguin

Penguin: i’m soooooo sorry you had to hear this song before heading out to the country. also just a tad concerned you think any girl in her right mind would think these boys are, in ANY way/shape and/or form, “hot”. πŸ˜‰

Comment by snuppy

Were on earth do you do your video shopping? This was hysterical! And without your help, I never would have been so culturally enriched. Thanks Snuppy.

Comment by Jeff

Jeff: actually, my son “picked up” this little number for me. not unlike many of the truly weird and/or funny videos i share. that boy… he can’t find a clean pair of socks, even when there’s a pile of ’em on his bed, but ask him to find something unusual for the Snark, and he’ll spend days on end scouring the internet, in hopes of coming up with something perfect. guess it doesn’t hurt that he also has a bunch of geeky friends from all over the world, who are more than happy to help. πŸ˜‰
