Gin and Topics: A Chip Joke and Cinco de Mayo

By: Gini Dietrich | May 3, 2013 | 

Gin and TopicsBefore we begin, let us first take a moment to wish Yvette Pistorio a happy birthday.

We’ve been hearing the countdown for at least a month now. Clearly I’ve had a very good influence on her.

At the count of three. One. Two. Three.

Happy Birthday, Yvette!

Now on with the show. Oh wait! Speaking of shows! Who’s going to see Iron Man 3 this weekend? I CANNOT WAIT!!

I heart Robert Downey, Jr.

NOW on with the show.

This week’s Gin and Topics is brought to you by Lindsay Bell, Jessica Malnik, Sean McGinnis, Lara Wellman, and yours truly.

5. Gymnast from Bulgaria. This is incredible. Lindsay said it blew her mind, which isn’t really hard to do, but I agree. It’s mind blowing. This little girl is super flexible. I’ve never seen anything like it.

4. Dancing with an iPod. This will just make you happy. I mean, it’s Wham!, it’s an iPod, and it’s a cute guy dancing in public. What more do you need?

3. Dancing Dog. This is fantastic! A woman has taught her dog to dance to “You’re the One that I Want” from Grease. The dog plays Danny Zuko and has some serious dance moves. Watch out, John Travolta! You’ll soon be replaced by a golden retriever.

2. Two Chips. You’re going to start this video and think, “Really, Gini?” Trust me when I say it’s H-I-larious (as Mattie Dietrich would say)! I mean, when she tells the punch line and the chip bleeds cheese? You will laugh. I guarantee it.

1. When is Cinco de Mayo? I love it when Jimmy Kimmel goes to the streets to ask people a seemingly simple question. This time? When is Cinco de Mayo? My favorite quote? “I’ve always wanted to be one of those dumb people on the street!” “Well…you’ve done it.”

Have a great weekend!

    I love dumb people.They make me seem smart by comparison. It really is sad that she didn’t know that, but she had a goal and she met it right?

    • NancyDavis I loved how it took her 20,000 tries to get it right. Poor thing.

  • PattiRoseKnight1

    The Cinco de Mayo one is the reason I will avoid people with microphones on the street no matter what!!!!

    • PattiRoseKnight1 Oh come on! You’d know how to answer that. What does it celebrate? Tacos!

  • I LOVE that dancing video! Isn’t it the same guy who did the Disney princesses video? I clearly need to step up my office dancing game.

  • The chips were my favorite.

  • Where to start? I got sucked into this by the gymnast. Wow.  I follow a lot of dancers on Instagram b/c my daughter is a dancer. If you want to see similarly rubber-bandable people, go to @tomicy on IG. It’s incredible.  Oh and the singing guy I liked. For some reason the Payless Shoes scenes were an especially enjoyable juxtaposition. And the Grease/Dog Show lady – wow her ensemble was a perfect complement to her pooch! These were awesome and yes I did laugh at the chips. Probably a little too hard. 🙂

    • biggreenpen Seriously the nacho cheese coming out of the chip. Hilarious!

  • Gymnast = totally mind-blowing. Seriously, is her back okay? Because it seems unnatural to bend that far backwards. I seriously love that the iPod dancing guy was dancing #likeaboss behind the guy wearing that tee shirt. Hilarious. The dancing dog was friggin amazing and the chips made me cry I laughed so hard. I’m also going to tell everyone “I’m nacho friend” all weekend. I think Rick Mercer talking to Americans is even funnier than Jimmy Kimmel though. 😉

    • Karen_C_Wilson RICK MERCER!!! Our Rick. **hearts** As for the gymnast, I was less impressed with her flexibility than the fact that she would throw that ball so high and then catch it with her ears and stuff! I mean come on!! Some of those snares were outta this world. PS: It takes A LOT to blow my mind, ginidietrich – Dorktastic idiocy and ‘mind blowing’ are not the same thing. 😉

      • belllindsay Karen_C_Wilson ginidietrich The first time I saw Rick Mercer, I thought it was hilarious! Also, I’m American so it is always good to laugh at your countrymen, right? 😉 Gini, here’s a sample for you:

        • Karen_C_Wilson belllindsay We can go on at great lengths about nothing?! Who knew?

        • Karen_C_Wilson OMG. People are stupid.

    • Lara Wellman

      Karen_C_Wilson ginidietrich belllindsay She really did text me saying “I’m nacho friend” She and my husband also both guessed that the chip video was mine because apparently my love of punny is well known.  🙂

      • Lara Wellman Karen_C_Wilson ginidietrich belllindsay It’s going to be an interesting weekend at Social Capital.

        • Lara Wellman

          EdenSpodek Just watch out if  @bobledrew also gets going 😉   Karen_C_Wilson ginidietrich belllindsay

  • Bob Farnham

    Clearly, I need to better study the business practices at Arment Dietrich, Inc.

  • Ok, I gave the chip video a chance, and you’re right…hahaha! I did laugh especially when the girl narrating started laughing at her own joke! Ha!!
    And oy, people don’t know when Cinco De Mayo is…bongos?! Hahahaha!! I hate stupid people. “What do you celebrate – Tacos” hahahahaha!!!
    And THANK YOU for the birthday wishes!!! xoxo

  • Omigod – the END end of the chip thing is hilarious – it’s night time and the poor thing is still there, bleeding cheese, getting eaten by birds!!! hahahahahaha

  • Cannot wait to see Iron Man 3 tonight!  We watched numbers 1,2 and the Avengers over the past week to get psyched.  RDJ all the way (swoon). 
    Loved the rhythmic gymnast.  I go super nerd every summer Olympics over those girls!  
    The chip video was hi-larious.

    • HeatherTweedy I’m going to go see it in four hours so don’t talk to me about it yet!

  • Dancing boy took me back to high school. Half the girls in school were desperate for George Michael, who knew I had a better shot than them. 😉

    • Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes I’d be wiling to bet it was more than half.

  • I want to just break out into a dance at the mall one day singing Sting and have someone record me.

  • Happy Birthday, yvettepistorio! 
    ginidietrich I just don’t get those two chips. What am I missing? Cinco de Mayo is hilarious and that dancing dog, wow!

    • Lara Wellman

      EdenSpodek you don’t get the chips?  That was my submission, cracked me up 😉

    • EdenSpodek I’m nacho friend!

      • ginidietrich I’m sad.   
        ginidietrich Lara Wellman  Let’s just taco bout it. 😉
