Separated at birth?

Today, after my son's last soccer game of the season, we took a celebratory trip to McDonald's for lunch. The Happy Meal toys for boys are a promotional tie-in to the movie "Astro Boy" (which I had no idea existed until this trip to the Golden Arches).

When I pulled the toy out of the plastic bag, I couldn't help but notice that Astro Boy bears a striking resemblance to another restaurant-related icon: Big Boy.

They do have the same last name. Perhaps they are related.

Facebook Status of the Day

Facebook statuses about Facebook statuses are the best! It's so meta.

Facebook Status of the Day:
  • DR LOVES it when people on here state the obvious. Like, "Hey, it's raining." Well great. What about it? With nothing following it. Try spicing it up, like, "I love the rainy weather so much that I want to marry it, then divorce it and take half its money." SPICY-get it?
Runners Up:
  • Random drug tests sometimes don’t seem to be random.

  • JH is wondering what Borders would do if she moved all of their bibles to the fiction section. Sorry Mom! LOL

  • SP has come up with another way to say no to my hubby's advances. I simply say, "Not now, honey, I'm Facebooking." The other night, he threatened to throw my phone out the window, all the while cursing "whoever it was that made Facebooking from bed possible.”

Facebook Status of the Day

People are being funny again! This makes me happy!

Facebook Status of the Day:

  • Target just called me on my cell phone to ask if it is okay to call me on my cell phone. I have to admit, it stopped me dead in my tracks for a minute there.

Runners Up:

  • GR wishes there were more situations in life where Rush Limbaugh could be mistaken for Rush, the completely awesome Canadian prog rock band.

  • RF wants to make out with whoever invented baby swings.

  • BN enjoys long walks on the beach and antagonizing strangers.

Facebook Status of the Day

Well, it was an interesting day. We crashed a rocket into the moon (on purpose), and President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. And major events always make for a funny day on Facebook! In fact, today was so funny, I've had to save a few for later. Tune in tomorrow for another installment!

Facebook Status of the Day:

  • If your president wins the Nobel Peace Prize, and all you can do is complain, you might be a redneck.

Runners Up:

  • I found an old pair of "comfort" pj's that I haven't worn in years. Gracie comes in and says, "Mom...those are totally gross." I said, "G, I wore these when you were in my tummy." She said, “Well, in there, I didn’t have to look at them.”

  • Maaan, those moon people are going to be piiiisssed!

  • WL thinks when you spend a couple billion dollars to "shoot" the moon, you damn sure oughta be able to see a "plume" on yer TV.

Facebook Status of the Day

I lost a friend to cancer today, and the world lost a loving, sweet, unique, quirky woman named Marcie Williams. My memories of Marcie always include her amazing, bright smile. She had an incomparable zest for life, and brought light to everything and everyone around her. It's an incredibly small way to pay tribute to her humor, but today, I dedicate the Facebook Status of the Day post to Marcie Williams, who left this earth at the age of 34--far too soon. May she rest in peace.

Facebook Status of the Day:

  • TR knows that a zoo patron is from West Virginia when they say, “Look ma! A kodiak bear. Just like the snuff.”
Runners Up:

  • Nice shot of “Buttcrack Dad” today. He's one of the dads at Emma's preschool, and during pickup when he bends over to get the art projects - BAM! The man really needs new pants...or a belt. I feel bad for laughing, but dang, it's funny!

  • I am going to call my kids Ctrl, Alt and Delete. Then if they screw up I will just hit them all at once.
