What Rolls Down Stairs?
Last night, stimulated by something that I have long since forgotten, the lyrics of Ren & Stimpy's "Log" commercial popped into my head. As I began to belt out the words at the dinner table, my lovable yet apparently Ren & Stimpy ignorant Almost-Husband simply raised an eyebrow and stared.
For the next half hour, I forced Alexis to sit at the computer with me while I attempted to ferret out old cartoons, most of which looked as if someone held a video camera up against the television. While he tried hard to appreciate the litter box humor that I so greatly coveted, Lex mostly muttered, "What is this?" and "Was this made for children?"
Oh poor, deprived Almost-Husband. There is no cartoon greater than Ren & Stimpy, the cat and chihuahua that brought us Log, Log for Girls, Don't Whiz on the Electric Fence, and The Muddy Mudskipper Show. To make up for your obvious lack of television watching during your first year in college, I have added all episodes to our Netflix queue.
I am so glad that Lex has come to terms with the fact that he is marrying someone with the maturity of a 12-year-old boy. It is one trait of mine that probably will not fade any time soon.

It's great for a snack and fits on your back it's log log log. (Nathan is always amazed and maybe pleased that when I break into song - it's the Log song)

You can actually buy a Log. I really want one.

It's Log, it's Log, it's big, it's heavy it's wood! It's Log, it's Log, it's better than bad it's good! Everyone loves a Log... Everyone needs a Log!
Happy New Year from Texas!

Ren & Stimpy! Hooray! One of my friends was getting rid of his VHS collection, and he had a number of R&S episodes on tape. Now I have it, and am very happy. I suspect Lex is more the Horse: "No Sir. I don't like it."

my old job involved handling the original storyboards for this show - pencil drawings, coffee stained paper...it felt like a religious experience. whatever that is

re: 12 year old boy maturity. I assume you've told him the "cut the cheese" story?

"Nurse Stimpy" is my all-time favorite, followed closely by "Space Madness."
Powdered Toast Maaaan!

Do you have any rubber walrus protectors?

I must add "Magic Nose Goblins" - no Ren and Stimpy discussion is complete without it.

Also a big fan of "Powdered Toast Man" ... something swell about a superhero who flies backwards, and apparently paying homage to some deviant British version of French Toast (or something, but he seemed heroic .. very pre-cursor to "Drawn Together").

What about Stimpy's quest to find his love 'Stinky'? Oh Stinky!
Yes Powder Toast Man....what did he say again? "Grab tenaciously to my buttocks". GREAT STUFF!
My spouse asks me often "How old are you again?" when he catches me watching cartoons. Slowly he is coming over to our side.
