Isn’t that Friends episode the one where Joey gets his head stuck in the turkey? If so, that was priceless!
My cats do the same thing all the time!! They always look at each other as if to say I meant to do that, really!
I love to watch Moonstruck! Great list!
MY T13 is up. Happy Thursday!
Pass the Torch says
That is a funny list. I can totally see your cats doing that – I have a cat too. And I indulge in a little Dooce once in a while too – who doesn’t?
Thanks for visiting my TT – I hope you’ll enter a post in the Pass the Torch contest!
The Princess Bride is truly a hidden treasure. And for my money, Eddie Murphy pretty much stole the show in Shrek.
Southern Girl says
That’s a great list! A lot of those make me laugh, too — especially #s 1 & 11. *g*
Thanks for visiting my TT!

Great list because I love anything humorous.

Love the Stephanie Plum series…the characters are great!! My hubby hates it when I read in bed because I giggle so much!
I also love “Firefly” and “Serenity” dialogue!! Never tire watching it!

~ Stacy ~ says
Great list! Loved the image of your cats acting all cool in their blunder. LOL! And Serenity and Firefly rock! Joss Whedon is brilliant. [sigh] I wish he would bring back something to TV, I miss his humor. Did you know that he did Buffy and Angel, too?
Thanks for visiting my T13 today. Hope you’re having a terrrific Thursday!
Neat list. I love The Princess Bride and Shrek!

Grandma Mazur is my favorite from the Plum books, the Princess Bride is the best movie ever, and Miss Doxie’s blog makes me snort! Welcome to the 13!
Miss Britt says
1 – LOVE the title of your blog
2 – you weren’t kidding about being an attention whore! LOL 😉 But seriously, TT is a good way to get traffic at least ONE day a week!
3 – you killed my father. prepare to die.
My husband can be a weasel and daughter a monkey. Both are quite messy to have around too. Welcome to T13. Take care. -Margie
Anytime I can work the words “monkey” or “weasel” into a conversation.
I do believe I am going to try this tomorrow with all of my friends just to see what will happen! Classic!
Oh yeah, the characters from Stephanie’s New Jersey are a trip! Imagine Grandma Plum & Lula in a sitcom? Hee!
I just ordered my first Janet Evanovich book and I’m so excited to start reading it! Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.
BTW, my fav episode of Friends is when Rachel made the English Triffle. LOL!
Oops, the anonymous one above is me.
Great list! I LOVE Donkey from Shrek. He’s hilarious.
i laugh at Friends all the time except on the most terrible of terrible days.
thanks for visiting!
Thanks for visiting my TT! 🙂
Good stuff there.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Great list! We call our little girl “Monkey” sometimes…affectionately, of course. 😉 And I love Donkey, or as he calls himself – Dunkey. 🙂
Welcome to TT! It’s alot of fun!!
The Princess Bride and Friends absolutely get me going. I think my own personal fave line from Princess is when Inigo Montoya says to the “Inconceivable!” guy – “You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Hilarious.
Thanks so much for dropping by! I’m bookmarking your blog!
Lady Penguin says
Your blog is hilarious! Im bookmarking you too….
Thanks for stopping by my TT. I can tell that you are a movie buff just like me! I like all the ones you mentioned, especially Moonstruck….I can walk around around for days singing the Dean Martin song (off key, but I like it). 🙂
Cats are so funny…and I know the “I totally meant to do that” face.
Must have missed you last week. Thanks for participating in the BoS, btw. My T13 – Classic Books I’ve Never Read Edition is up at Bloggin’ Outloud. Thanks!
