Gin and Topics: What Does the Fox Say?

Gin and TopicsBy Gini Dietrich

I’m baaaaaaack!

I snuck myself into the Gin and Topics rotation. There are some advantages to being the shallow figurehead.

Can you believe it’s almost October? I need to get my Halloween stuff out this weekend and get my house ready for fall.

It’s been a crazy couple of months. I had a cycling accident that landed me in the emergency room and then I got the flu so bad, not only did it last two weeks (TWO WEEKS), I actually canceled a speaking engagement AND called in sick. Unheard of.

But Laura Petrolino told me I’m good until 2016 so I’m taking her words to heart and going full force from today forward.

And that starts with Gin and Topics. I had a little help from MATTIE DIETRICH (she gets very excited when we do that to her name), Jeannie Walters, Liz Reusswig, and Mr. D.

5. #Hashtag with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. When I heard Justin Timberlake was making a visit to Jimmy Fallon this week, I knew we were in for a surprise. As usual, the dynamic duo came up with something awesome for their time together. #iheartjustintimberlakemostguyswanttobehim

4. One Adorable Solar System Expert. If I had kids, this is how I would want them to be…super smart and irresistibly adorable. Five-year-old Marshall Kimber goes on Ellen to talk about everything he knows about the solar system. He tells Ellen why Pluto is not a planet, what his favorite planet is, and why Uranus is your bum. He sings a song, pronounces an R, and asks for a gift. You’ll fall in love.

3. What Does the Fox Say? We were at the Bears home opener and Jeannie asked me if I had seen the fox video all the kids are watching. I had not so she sent this to me. I’m not sure I can do it justice talking about it. You have to watch it. I’ll leave you with this…what does the fox say?

2. BatDad. So this guy puts on a Batman mask, talks in a lower voice, and takes six second videos of him talking to his family. This is a compilation of all of those videos and it is H-I-larious! I don’t know what is more funny: His wife rolling his eyes at him every time he speaks to her, his son answering him in the same lower voice, or the girls screaming with laughter as they run for the bus.

1. Lip Sync Battle with Joseph Gordon Levitt, Stephen Merchant, and Jimmy Fallon. I contend if Mr. D had a late night show, this is the type of stuff he would do. He’d bring his friends on and they’d talk in hashtags and have lip sync battles.  Maybe even Batman would make an appearance. I think Stephen Merchant wins this battle with “All the Single Ladies,” but JGL is a very close second when he lip syncs Nicki Minaj.

Have a great weekend!

The BatWife was my favorite part of BatDad.. that would be me.. really? that thing again? Or I would be BatMom.. one of those two scenarios. Watched the Fox thing a couple of weeks ago and immediately wanted my 2 minutes back. Asked my in-house expert (the 15 year old) and she had never heard of it. Maybe I'll ask again...

After countless mentions on social media and not giving in, I now know what the fox says. On to the three things.

If something is really funny, I cry. Batman made me cry.

Okay, the lip synch is epic.  I know, one of the most overused words in the English language....but truly, epic!!!!

Red foxes bark.  It's kind of a yippy bark, like a rather small dog would make.  Grey foxes have more of a growly bark that almost sound like a heavy smoker clearing this throat.


You're welcome.  :-)

Jimmy Fallon is wrecking it in general right now - glad he never got Conan'd.

@ginidietrich Loved the Gin & Topics this morning. (But now I'm gonna wonder what the fox says all weekend long!) ;)

How about setting up a Google hangout so that we can all do a lip sync faceoff? How fun would that be? My go-to song would be Shadow Dancing by Andy Gibb. Anyone in?
