So last night a bunch of us are hanging out, and we stumbled upon "The Wizard of Oz" and start rambling about who would be which characters, and I say that Rich & Damon could be the tin-men and that our friend Greg could be the lion... and was continuing when Damon interrupted and said, "And what is the Tin Man known for?"
And I immediately responded, "Being Awesome" and was rewarded with big hearty laughs.



So, this is an old story but I haven't been in the mood to write lately.

There's a bunch of us hanging out at my house - for one reason or another - and Greg puts in Transformers into the TV and collectively we end up watching the movie. I had no interest. I don't care about Transformers. It's mostly over by the time all of us end up watching it, and there's this part where one of the robots, apparently Megatron, wakes up from a frozen slumber. He breaks free from ice or the ground or something and starts moving his arms and then he shouts MMEGAATRROON!
I thought this was just ridiculous. So, I said I'm exactly like that in the morning too, and I pumped my arms and legs up and down and growled, my name, MUUULIISSSAAAAA! And everybody friggin' cracked up. I was surprised at the reaction it got... but you know it just keeps getting funnier and funnier.

It's also not going away. Turns out growling out your own name while pumping arms and legs is quite funny. The reference keeps getting pulled out, all the time. It's pretty super.

Oh me oh my. What have I started?
