Oh Yeah….

Remember when you were a kid and you played this game:

No matter what amazing fact or thought a friend had, you had to have an ‘Oh yeah’ to counter that. It goes like this:

Kid: “I play baseball”
Me: “Oh yeah, well I play football”

Kid: “I went to Disneyland”
Me: “Oh yeah, well I went to Disneyworld”

You get the idea. I thought it would be fun to bring that game back and see how it goes now that I’m a lot older but no more mature than I was back then.

Einstein: E=MC2
VE: Oh yeah, well Has Been = MC Hammer!

Neil Armstrong: One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind
VE: Oh yeah, well I can do a triple leap and once stepped on some kind of man

Martin Luther King: I have a dream
VE: Oh yeah, well I have a Dreamcicle

Sigmund Freud: Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar
VE: Oh yeah, well my cigars are Cuban; made by Castro himself

Abraham Lincoln: Four score and seven years ago
VE: Oh yeah, well I scored a lot more than four times and they weren’t seven years ago either!

Forrest Gump: Mama always said life was like a box a chocolates, never know what you're gonna get
VE: Oh yeah, well I once made a Life game out of chocolate for my mama!

Helen Keller:
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn whatever state I am in, therin to be content.

Oh yeah, well I can hear people but I ignore them ON PURPOSE! I can see but I bump into walls ON PURPOSE!

To be or not to be, that is the question?!

Oh Yeah, well 2B multiplied by 3C to the power of pie minus 4A? - Now that's a frikkin' question!

Ed said...

bee - That is so you! Ha ha ha

quickroute - Hah! As long as it's not a story problem. Still...I'm too lazy to solve equations.

Sornie said...

Oh yeah, well I am far more random than you. Maybe.

lime said...

fdr: we have nothing to fear but fear itself

lime: oh yeah, well what about that big hairy thing with 4 inch fangs ready to chomp down on your head?

justacoolcat said...

Oh yeah, well that's just like your opinion man.

Unknown said...

Most people at some point in time: what is that?

Kanrei: a pronoun used to refer to a person or place afore mentioned.

Memarie Lane said...

I was wondering who'd hacked my email account, now I know it was Bee!

Kurt said...

Yes, I did make up that joke about Why did George W. Bush cross the road.

Ed said...

sornie - More random than me? Oh Yeah, well...hey, why do they call it the Space Needle; it's not in space at all, and what did they call the leaning tower of Piza when it was built (before the lean)?

lime - That would be my fear. I thought his fear was lack of votes

justacoolcat - Excellent Big Lewboski quote! Can't slip one of those by me, man!

kan - Nobody is more literal than you! They just can't compete...

marie - Watch out for be...particularly on Mondays.

kurt - Oh yeah? Well the road to hell is lined with Bushes!

I've never been good at this game. The best I can do is "Oh yeah ..."
It's pretty sad.

cathouse teri said...

Hee hee. Bee made me laugh.

cathouse teri said...

I'm too dumb to play this game.

But I will say that my youngest son and his friends utilize a much-overused retort. For instance, my son may say to his friend, "You suck donkey balls!" And his friend (I'm sure you know this already) comes back with, "Your MOM sucks donkey balls!" And then I get a call from my son saying, "Hey Mom! Rob just said you suck donkey balls! But it's okay, I punched him out for it."


Ed said...

theresa - It's a start. You got the first part down!

teri - Hah. The old "your mamma" variation. Some things never change, do they?

Serena said...

I think my sister and I actually said this one when we were teenagers:

Me: I sneaked out the basement window last night.

Sis: Oh, yeah? So did I, and I didn't get caught and grounded.

RED MOJO said...

"A fool and his money are soon parted."

Oh yeah, well can I borrow five bucks?

Megan said...

"once stepped on some kind of man" - I laughed for about ten minutes after reading that.

Beth said...

Well, that did drive me crazy as a kid but worse was that taunt, "I know you are but what am I?"
Try doing that now!

Ed said...

sj - Ouch, she got you on that one!

red mojo - Hah. Good one. Nice try!

megan - I sometimes don't know what I'm writing...

beth - I know are, but what am I?

"Oh, yeah, well TWO polar bears chased me around my truck, one moving clockwise and the other counter clockwise, and I outran both of 'em."

Anonymous said...

"...AND I was running uphill the whole time. Carrying a keg of beer under one arm."

Ed said...

bunk - Oh yeah? Well Chuck Norris was chasing me around the truck!

Anonymous said...

Caught you in a lie, my friend. Everyone knows Chuck Norris doesn't chase. He lures.

damon said...

Technically, we did about the same thing. But instead of "oh yeah" we used "yeah, so".

Ex: You aren't very good at basketball 'cause you're short.

Yeah, so. You suck at hockey and your mom is doin the gasman.

See? almost the same.

Schmoop said...

Clever. Ha. I like these. That's all I got. I feel so impotent today. Cheers VE!!

Ed said...

bunk - Ha ha. Oh no, he chases, all you have to do is tease him about how Bruce Lee took him DOWN!!! He gets all crybaby like and chases you...

damon - I tried to plot that into a mathematical equation but remembered that I hate math so it all makes sense to me now.

matt-man - Stumped the matt-man today...doesn't happen often.
