June 11 : Things I Should Have Known

on July 18, 2012


I am bad for being naive when it comes to famous shows and movies. I’m going to compile a list so you can laugh at me – like I have been laughing at myself.

As you can see above, the first one goes to the Daleks. I seriously, thought they were a great thing! I always heard about them in conjunction with Dr. Who. I didn’t know they were baddies! When I mentioned it to an OS friend today I think he was highly surprised. Considering their catch phrase is “exterminate, exterminate, exterminate” I probably should have picked up on this at some stage, right?

Seriously, George Lucas. You suck! Ok, so you’re quadri-billionare who coined “In a galaxy, far, far away.” but still. YOU SUCK! Until earlier this year, I had no knowledge that Yoda actually died. I thought he was this all infinite little green dude that spoke in riddles forever. Yes, F-UH-EVER! When I discovered that he died, I was distraught. I actually cried. How dare he kill that little backwards speaking green marshmallow?

I am a proud Aussie. Everyone knows this. However, I didn’t learn the second verse of our national anthem until I was 19 – and it was two of my little sisters who taught me! We went to the annual ANZAC day dawn service and the anthem was sung (As you expect it to be) yet I had no clue of the second verse. My little sisters, however, sung their hearts out. My family puts this down to the fact that I come from a podunk town, and we only got the second verse after I graduated.

How is that I, who has a fairly dirty mind and picks up on most innuendo, never realised that these toys were named Woody and Buzz? Like, Really? When I did click to this, I nearly died. You know Oprahs “Ah-ha” moment? Yeah, I had one. Go me. The third Story has it’s only little section of innuendo as well. Barbie and Ken in their own little love-shack? If the shack is rockin’, don’t come a knockin’!

Shrek has more innuendo than a low-level porn film. Don’t believe me? Watch it. I never picked up on this as child, and I can see why in this one. Hello? I was  twelve. Any way, it’s full of one liners (Do you think he is compensating for something?) and the iconic scene where Farquaad looks under the blanket at seems pleased at what seems to… ahem… arise. Watch the movie and when you see the bits, don’t feel like a twat. I already did that for you!
