HAHAHAHAHA! Oh my goodness, you are brilliant. I can't tell you how great this is.
Love it, love it, love it! LOL.Jean
"Internet law school"...it's hilarious and also tragic because real kids have been caught in these traps. Good stuff!
"*shrugs* Praise Jesus, I know."LOL!!
Love the ending!!! You might be able to get a job as an SNL writer!
dang i got this funny little man telling me don't worry but i caint see no movie!! - SF
SF, go directly to the site. It plays there.Love this, Ruth. Especially love the fact that the women are wearing pants and showing cleavage! I guess they don't make QF Fashion Lego dolls. ;-)Excuse me, I'm off to apply for some Prestigious Internet Law Schools. (bwa ha ha ha haaa!)
Yeah, I had to just copy and paste link in my browser; see if that works for you. :)Ruth, this is brilliant as always. I've been around these type people, both in real life and on internet boards. It is some seriously nauseating stuff. The ironic part is that the same people who "upmanship" themselves in the name of "Praise Jesus" put other people down for doing the same. I guess if you aren't part of their exclusive club, that's how it goes. All I know is that the movie you did illustrates the upmanship factor very well. :)
I want to Fellowship with people!!!!!Can someone internet "bless" me?Okay, so hanging out with these people would set off every snarky tendency I have.School of the dining room table, indeed!
Prestigious Internet Law School--hahahahahahaha! This is hilarious.
HAHAHA . . . good job. Still giggling over here.
You might be able to get a card game out of this - Fellowship Trumps or something. Hilarious, and I can't really tell where the exaggeration begins. It greeves me muchly.
Yeah, what about those clothes? I was wondering if those were mini-skirts? Tsk tsk! :-)
Good movie! Question...what is the point of the "links to this post" button? Every time I press it, it just goes to the bottom of your blog.
LOOOOOOOOL Thank you for this moment of laughter !!!
Oh, that's hilarious. I remember getting constantly one-upped whenever my schoolwork was praised, by a woman whose son went on to get perfect SAT scores, graduate with an MBA... then work as a part-time accountant (because he didn't "feel like" working full time) into his 30s and live single in her basement.
Hahahahaha. This is absolutely hilarious. It's so accurate!! Great job
Okay, I`ve been lurking here for a while, but I had to come out of the woodwork to tell you that this made my day. In reality it`s actually sad, but yet, you manage to make it hilarious.
Thank you for posting this. It made me giggle this morning. Only thing you missed was the baby that could change it's own diapers...LOL.
That is seriously scary. And seriously funny. And seriously very good. The robotic tones add to the overall 'Stepford Wives' effect.Now if they ran out of things to 'one up', what would they talk about? Or would they ever run out? You could get beautifully self-referential here with them being one up about their one-upmanship.Would they, I wonder, discuss how humble they are to be so blessed? And compete to see who's more humble about their blessings?And when they say 'Praise Jesus' or 'Praise the LORD' it sounds so throw away, like a dutiful interpolation in the bragging - oh, better put that in, just to prove I'm soooo spiritual!Hope you enjoyed making that, Ruth, as much as I enjoyed listening. I wish you had an Apple mac with i-movie or comic strip on it, like I use with the kids at school - you could do plasticine model animation too, with that and make a whole family interact.I don't know what you are studying, but if it isn't creative writing it's a shame :)
Sierra,Yikes! Living in the basement. Ouch.My daughter has an ex-home schooled fundie isolationist friend at her college last year who said her big brother actually WAS the proverbial "rocket scientist" (degree from UNC-Chapel Hill in some kind of engineering) but all he did with his degree was live in mom's basement and play WoW. Painful.I'm a home school mom of another sort, and these sorts of stories scare the bejeebers out of me!
Haha wow!"We have been bless-ed with four more blessings." SOTDRT at it's best with the vocab. Thanks Ruth! Brilliant as always!
I never posted before, but I had to tell you I loved it! So sad but sooo true! -Sara
*dies laughing* especially the irony of their yuppie-esque appearance. As I said last week, I had a giggle when my first-graders were playing the one-upmanship game; the timing of your original post couldn't have been better and demonstrates that this is a human issue; it reaches beyond acquisitive yuppie moms and 12 year old girls.
Bwa-hahahaha!!! I LOVE it!! Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. SOTDRT indeed! And I love the random throwing out of "Praise Jesus" and blessing.I would drive a long way to fellowship with these people! Course, the difficult thing would be to keep my mouth shut. =) *hugs* Great job, Ruth!
That. Was. A. Riot. You're incredibly clever with those things!!!
You thought of about 13 names for that thing!
