Okay dudes. So I am writing this blog, but before I even get into it, I must give credit where credit is due. This blog is inspired by Tara and Sara. Tara was the original inspiration, and Sara helped with the research. So although the brilliance this blog is about to entail is by no means my own, I'd encourage you to keep reading. Others are hilarious too, you know! BOOM! I'm so conceited.
So, I was gmail chatting it up with both Tara and Sara this morning. Tara and I were discussing sports, specifically The Olympics, and talking about how Michael Phelps is a little bit funny. He's on the US swimming team and has broken like 78 world records. I think that's the exact number. Anyhow, check it out:
Tara: im kind of scared of michael phelps' noodle-y body
me: haha yeah! can you imagine him giving you a big hug??
like when he's warming up and flips his arms around and they are like disconnected
me: I'm telling you..
yeah! they are noodle-y! good description!
Tara: he's like those inflated things at car washes and stuff, you know?
they wiggle all weirdly in the air
they totally gross me out
Tara: this is why im a little scared of him
me: see, I LOVE those things! And I'm not usually scared of Michael Phelps!
only when I imagine him hugging me
Tara: look at him when he's getting ready at the pool and he flips his arms around
he looks just like one of those thigns!
dude are you going to write a blog about this, or am I?
Basically, I envisioned the blog as showing videos of both the noodle-y things and of Michael Phelps. The problem was that I had no idea how to find what those things are called. Now, since I was chatting with my sister at the same time, I thought to myself, "Sara is a smart cookie! Why not take a shot in the dark and ask her what she thinks those things are called?" The conversation went as follows:
hey I have a question
you know those guys outside like car dealerships and gas stations? the things that wave their arms all crazy in the wind?
not real people, btw
me: how do you think you would look that up on youtube?
to find a video possibly
10:35 AM I wonder what they're called...
Sara: well, on family guy they call them Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man
me: HAHAHAHA omg. how do you know this
Sara: heh heh i'm a genius
me: okay I'll look that up specifically
Sara: tell me if it works
me: you know what?
So, let's all say a great big thank you to Tara and Sara (say their names so they rhyme. It's funny) for providing us with the hilarity that will inevitably follow after watching the following videos. Good work everybody!
Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man (found with Sara's creative genius):
Michael Phelps before a race (you have to go to about 1:12 in the video. Don't worry about watching the rest). Tara found this one!
I also feel that I have to add that my sister called the Wacky Waving things "gentle giants." Oh my effing god. Today belongs to Sara and Tara.
