Gin and Topics: Lots of Dancing and Some Bad Lip Reading

By: Gini Dietrich | January 25, 2013 | 

We finally have snow! We finally have snow! We finally have snow!

Jack Bauer and I were the first ones out in it this morning. I made snow angels and he marked every tree he could find.

I don’t mean to be greedy, but it needs to snow just a little bit more so my cross-country skis can come out and play, too!

If anyone can do a snow dance that sends me more snow, I’d be forever in your debt.

I’m going to go see what I can do about that while I leave you to watch this week’s Gin and Topics.

5. Trust Fall Fail. I realize it makes me a horrible person to think this is funny, but man! It’s FUNNY! It’s a little girl doing a trust fall for the very first time.

4. Funny Little Kids Dancing. Something about little kids in dance class is hilarious to me. I don’t know where this is shot, but it turns out dancing crosses all cultures. This is no exception with these little girls (and one little boy who you glance a couple of times toward the end) performing a routine that some have memorized and others have not.

3. Alcohol Test. I realize this is staged, but it totally cracks me up! Have these people never done the Electric Slide?!?

2. Baby Crashes Concert. This might be the cutest thing I have ever seen. A baby gets on stage to dance while his daddy is performing and totally steals the show with his no pants and pacifier in his mouth.

1. Bad Lip Reading. I freaking love these! This one is scenes from The Hunger Games. “Hey Tuna Flavor!” They have Twilight, too. That may be here next week. I’ll watch and let you know.

Happy weekend all!

  • Bwhahahaha!!! I LOVE the bad lip reading!!! that’s hilarious! And the baby stealing the show is too cute!!

    • @yvettepistorio Wasn’t he cute? He’s just up there on stage dancing away.

  • belllindsay

    The Bad Lip Reading guys are my personal heros. The presidential debates were epic!!

    • @belllindsay FIdo! I found Fido! You guys! I found Fido! 
      I will think that every time I see Tom Brady now.

      • belllindsay

        @ginidietrich HAHAHA! Such dumb words from such a pretty face. 🙂

        • @belllindsay  @ginidietrich “You know — where you make fudge puddles?”

  • ifdyperez

    You opened up my world to Bad Lip Reading! The Inauguration one came out today!

    • @ifdyperez I know! I can’t wait to watch it!

  • J C Morgan Kreidel

    Bad lip reading, my not so secret guilty pleasure: “Do something fruuuuittty!”

  • The Trust Fall Fail was my favorite. We laughed big laughs here!

    • @EricaAllison I’ve watched it at least five times and I laugh every time! We’re terrible people.

  • Gini Dietrich

    I’m telling you. Every time I see Tom Brady now, I’m going to think, “Fido! I found Fido! You guys! I found Fido!”

  • KateNolan

    Scooby doo! 
    Oh, and little girls/babies dancing… Gets me everytime!

    • @KateNolan Me too! I love any and all kids dancing!

  • Yep, the lip syncing ones are the best; who has the time to do all that AND get paid, huh?

    • @bdorman264 Seriously. We’re in the wrong jobs.

  • Lindsay Bell-Wheeler

    “You guys!!” – gets me every time.

  • Ohhhhh, the Bad Lip Reading has completely made my day. But Little Kids Dancing hits a little too close to home — looks just like some moves I tried out myself in the mid-late 90s!

    • @dwaynealicie Well, now you know you could perform with three year olds.

      • @ginidietrich Tee hee … you know what, for my niece’s third birthday over the summer, we had a “parade!”  Which basically meant running around the living room faster and faster and banging on empty water bottles, laughing uncontrollably.  : D  Good times!

        • @dwaynealicie That might be the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard!

  • The trust fall is hilarious! I feel sorry for her for trusting people who didn’t tell her the basics! 🙂 Kind of ironic but hilarious!

    • @Hajra  It’s one of those things you don’t think to say, “See your sister standing behind you? You’re going to fall backwards so she can catch you.”

  • rdopping

    “He barfed on a sailor like a pig…..and the police ate Timothy!” That, and the trust fall. Love it. Can you say Darwin Awards?

    • @rdopping I freaking love Bad Lip Reading. I want to marry them.

  • You WERE making snow angels. I knew it! Trust fall still takes the cake. I did laugh at the Hunger Games though. Did you read those books? I really liked them!

    • @kateupdates Totally! Me and JB at 5:00 in the morning. No one else was out and it was snowing. It was fantastic! Yes…I read all of the Hunger Games books. I had to tell myself, if I worked with extreme focus, I could cut out an hour early to go home and read.

  • All great, but I still want an explanation of the dancing Fiddle Faddle boxes….I might have nightmares.

    • @KenMueller This gives me the best idea ever!

  • Trust fall and the baby dancing were fabulous! Glad you got your snow finally.

    • @allenmireles It’s good to know I’ll see you in hell!
