May I mambo dogface to the banana patch?Posted: June 23, 2011
Back in the 70s when he was still doing stand-up, Steve Martin had a bit where he speculated on how funny it would be to teach a little kid all the wrong words. So once in kindergarten, the teacher would freak out when the kid raises his or her hand and asks, “May I mambo dogface to the banana patch?”
I dunno. Some days I feel like the kid, taught lots of incorrect stuff that I now have to unlearn. Some other days I feel like the teacher, trying to decipher what others say, make sense of it. Some days (like today) I just laugh about it all.
Try to work that into your vocabulary today. “May I mambo dogface to the banana patch?” Another good one is “It’s crackers to slip a rozzer the dropsy in snide,” but I’ll save that for another day..
