Gin and Topics: The Truth Fairy and a Dump Truck

Gin and TopicsOur office is officially closed today, but I am taking a writing vacation in exactly nine days so have lots to do!

Yes, it’s true. I will be away from here for two whole weeks!

But it means I’m taking advantage to most people being off today and getting some work done.

That means you get the regularly scheduled Gin and Topics. I didn’t really want to wait until next week to give you the one in the number one spot, anyway. I hope you like it as much as I do. I’ve watched it six times and it makes me laugh every time!

The videos this week are thanks to Heidi Massey, Lindsay Bell, Laura Click, Mr. D., and yours truly.

Let me know what you think!

5. Heavy Metal Kids. You have to watch the little girl on the right. She has some serious heavy metal talent.  Watch out Gene Simmons!

4. The Social Farter. This.Is. Awesome. Just replace “farter” with “smoker” and you have a brilliant “stop smoking” campaign. It’s seriously awesome.

3. Sergio Garcia Tree Hit. I wouldn’t normally call golf exciting to watch. In fact, it’s usually pretty boring. But this is some serious athleticism. One golfer. One tree. One hand. On the green. As a side note: The announcers are dolts.

2. Nolan Can’t Say Dump Truck. I don’t know why little kids accidentally saying swear words is so stinking funny, but this is hilarious! I think I almost like how he says fire truck better than how he says dump truck.

1. The Truth Fairy. Man, alive! If I had kids I would totally do stuff like this to them. I would ruin them for life. Jimmy Kimmel sets up a fake lie detector and talks to five-year-old Joelle about boys, her friends, and being nice to other kids in class. It definitely is in the top five of all videos ever made. I hope she got her gumball machine!

Thanks for including the dump truck video. It's actually now on the homepage of CNN! Crazy how fast that one spread. 

 

And the Truth Fairy? Hilarious!

I'm pretty sure that's GWAR on the sound system. Hilarious! The golf is pure gold (and yes, the announcers are dolts).

Oh bummer, bummer, bummer! I can't watch them now - my head wants to have a migraine...it's trying, so I'm on a strict audio diet. Man, I love these posts. Emailing to myself so I remember to come back when I'm in the clear. 

 

Two weeks - no Gini? What? What did you say?

@ginidietrich Unfortunately, procrastination is something I rarely need help with. :/ But I'll check the videos out anyway.

If i had to guess I'd say Mr. D sent the golf one and maybe the Jimmy Kimmel and btw it is hysterical.  The difference between girls and boys - the girl owns up to the fib when the lights go on and a boy probably would keep on fibbing either because they want to or because they like the lights going on - or both!!!  I am going to share the don't smoke one with Mike - not that it will work - he will only quite when he wants to!

Best laughs I've had in a long, long time...and a lot of underlying truths in the various videos. Thanks for sharing on a *Good* Friday!

 @TaraGeissinger Is there anything you'd like to ask the Truth Fairy? I love how she turns and tells him she wants a gumball machine.

 @PattiRoseKnight I love how he asks her if it feels weird and when she says no, the lights go off. So funny!
