Friday Funnies: Maybe I Should Leave the House More Often



It’s possible I’m not getting out of the house enough.

In fact, I know I’m not.


In an effort to keep my youngest (the notorious 4yo from the UofM library fiasco) entertained, I’ve spent the week playing hours and hours of UNO, his new favorite game.

I should warn you: if you’re going to let a 4yo deal when you’re not watching, fate will tip wildly on his side.

Don’t believe me?



Not even so much as a lousy little Reverse.


He took the Hunger Games motto to heart. “May the odds be ever in your favor.” Or more accurately, “May the odds be ever stacked against you, you gullible mother of mine.”

I’m happy to say I almost won that round. Apparently, cheaters almost never prosper.

And just to show what hanging with a 4yo around the clock does to your brain, I find this video clip incredibly funny.

I’ve watched it more times than I should admit.



Funny, huh?

The writers of Sesame Street have a great sense of humor. I aspire to be one of them–sort of.

(I’m assuming you’ve already seen the Harvard baseball team version of this song. If not, it’s here. You must watch the whole thing. What makes this even better is that my daughter (13) was doing this little dance to the radio as we were driving. We pulled up to a red light and the man next to us, an older man in his 70s, started doing the dance with us. Classic. I love funny people!)

Have a great weekend!!!

Do you have any other “Call Me Maybe” video clips? We’re starting a collection at the Belliston household. (Must be kid-friendly)

  1. Loved both videos. Sesame Street is the best around at doing popular songs and making you laugh like crazy. I still like Elmo’s take on the Old Spice Commercial (I’m on a cow). My kids never thought Sesame Street was that great as kids (they liked stupid shows like Barney and stuff), but we watched Sesame Street anyway. It was my sanity when my house was full of my little kids and babysitting kids. They make me laugh constantly. Your son has something going there in U-No. I might have to try his trick. I like games to get over fast, and that would help.


        1. My hubby and I watched the Old Spice, Sesame Street style commercial last night. We both got a huge laugh out of it. THanks for sharing. Those Sesame Street people are writers are awesome.


  2. Awesome ending to my day…watched both of them and had a great laugh! Thanks for sharing!


    1. Come Friday, I’m usually exhausted and needing a good laugh, so writing Friday Funnies is therapeutic. It’s good to remember what made me laugh through the week. Glad they made you smile, too. :)
