Obsessions and Illuminations

Once upon a time I really, REALLY love the show Gilmore Girls. I aspire to the wit that is so easily displayed by the Loreleii (hee, hee, hee) and although I know it is completely scripted and staged, my hat goes off to the writers that actually think up that stuff.

So anyway, my sister got me the third season on DVD for my birthday and I have been watching it while I try to reassemble my room and there was an episode yesterday where Kirk (one of the eccentric townspeople) starts a new business where each day he prints a humorous quote he heard in his meanderings the day before on a T-shirt. Granted his endeavor fails miserably because his grand opening slogan was "Babette ate oatmeal today" (ha, ha, ha....?) but I think the concept is brilliant.

It's like a combination quote board and friend-finder. It lets everyone see something funny you heard, and then you can know that the people who get it are much the same as you!

So, based on my experiences yesterday, my hypothetical billboard T-shirt today says:

"I'm standing here in pieces and you're having delusions of grandeur!"

Get it?

I love! I think we should sponser a Sione Shirt: "I don't have a brother."

Tiff said...

Nice. Very Nice.

Ahhhh...mine would start out something like, "If all men were like unto Moroni..."--by the way girls--I've thought up a sign mor my Captain Moroni picture--one very like the stripling warriors' (which is in my room). That's all. That's all can also be used as a clever understatement that leaves the readers wanting more. That's all.

And they say the English language is complicated....

What happened to return with honor or his brother?

Adriane said...

Oh, Return with honor is still on my wall. And I'll bring his brother if I can...I'm just adding to my collection. I just heard a new quote for a T-Shirt: "Oh Please, you're not going to try to be interesting are you?"

Erika, the Sione quote is what he said upon seeing our Stripling Warriors sign. He got major awesome and witty points for that one.

Erika said...

I get it. That is witty!

Buhler said...

Sione is impressed that you even remember that comment and extremely surprised that he came up in your conversation.... for the record.

You'd get along great with a few of my current roommates. They're Gilmore Girls addicts.

Did I spell that wrong?
