Mr. Ed will totally eat your brains.

At bedtime last night, Car was (for some reason that I cannot, for the life of me, remember) singing the theme song to Mr. Ed. Except he was singing it totally wrong. If you know anything about me, you already know I had to immediately rectify this by singing the entire theme song. Yes, I have it memorized. Shut up. I also know the theme songs to Gumby, Green Acres, Small Wonder, Silver Spoons, Who’s The Boss, Growing Pains, Gummi Bears, G. I. Joe, Transformers, and The Greatest American Hero, to name just a few.

Don’t even get me started on the theme songs for the cartoons my kids watch.

I’m pretty sure this is why I’ve been unsuccessful in college thus far. There’s no room left in my brain.

After I finished singing the Mr. Ed song, Car said, “I’m pretty sure you’re the only person I know who can sing that whole song.” Well, obviously that’s wrong. After all, he knows my father, and I guarantee my father can sing it. But it got me to thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know), which made me decide it’s time for a little reader poll!

Talk about a full brain, at my age it feels like you’re trying to pour a full beer into a single shot glass.

Really Mimi? “a horse is a horse, of course, of course…” isn’t familiar at all?

I don’t think I know any words to “Mr. Ed.” Jenny, you’re so silly!

Sadly I had to put No on the poll. I used to fall under the Yes, born after 1970 but I have forgotten most of the lyrics and I only remember the beginning. :\

Bwahahaha. Not lame at all. Quite funny. As long as you don’t start eating hay? I won’t hold it against you.

You are so your father’s child. And Dad is still with me after 38 years in spite of the fact that I STILL can’t sing a single theme song correctly the whole way through.
