Top 5 Things That Are Always Funny

There are certain things that are pretty much a guaranteed laugh in LiLa Land.
1. Throwing the word "yo" onto the end of a sentence. Example: Just buildin' some street buzz, yo. We dare you not to laugh.

2. When Laura tries to type the phrase, "Eye-yi-yi." The spelling changes every time (Aye-yie-yie, I-yi-yi, Iye-yiy-yiy) and brings to mind the play West Side Story in the best way possible.

3. Mia. Lisa's daughter is unintentionally hilarious. She's constantly running into walls, clicks with her tongue and points when she doesn't know the word for something and regularly falls asleep during preschool music concerts. And, how could we forget the whistling? When Mia's embarrassed she does this cockeyed look and whistles at you. You can't not laugh when you're around her. I swear, we're laughing with her.

4. Awkward middle school pictures.

5. Chugging. Contrary to popular belief chugging is not only the act of drinking something rapidly, it's also a little known 90's dance move taught exclusively at Sharon's School of Dance in Twinsburg, Ohio.

Runners up include: the term "rode hard and put away wet," Sassy Gay Friend YouTube Videos, and this.

What about you guys? What's guaranteed to get a laugh out of you?

This is a little too much linkage for 6:30 AM, but I will say that any intentionally funny post by you two usually makes me spit in my coffee, in a good way.

Also my daughter and her smack talk is pretty hilarious. This is the little one, not the one you guys are getting to know.

The scene is just after a game of pictionary, in which she, my sister and I just beat mom, her sister, and my sister's GF.

Madison: "Are you guys feeling sweaty?"

Mom: "No, honey, why?"

Kylie "What are you talking about, dork?"

Madison: "I was just wondering, because you guys just got burned!"

She was 7 at the time. 7 going on 20 and hilarious.

Exclusive delirium, in my opinion

Corey Schwartz said...

The four laughing quadruplets... crack me up every time.

Kelly said...

I just bought that amazing closet organizer, yo.

Susan Fields said...

My 13-year-old son - he's hilarious!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

My 8 yo. cracks me up every time he opens his mouth! Unbelievable! :-)

JEM said...

I have no children to crack me up, but I find other people's children hilarious. Or annoying. They run the gamut.

Karen Akins said...

I know it's old, but that "David Bit Me" YouTube video never, ever fails to crack me up. Then, I started forcing Hubbykins to recreate it with me, only doing "Edward Bit Me" in a really whiny Bella voice. Cracks me up even harder.

Also. How sad is it that when I see "Aye yi yi", I immediately think of the Wiggles' Kiley Minogue "Monkeyman" video?

Samantha Vérant said...

I've got nothin', yo.

B.E. Sanderson said...

The eTrade baby commercials crack me up, every time. And some of those Geico ones where the guy asks questions like "Was Abe Lincoln honest?" and then it shows Abe's wife asking him if her dress makes her bottom look big. That one and the one with Randy Johnson kill me. Other than that, my husband always makes me laugh. =o)

Krispy said...

Eye-yi-yi?

My sister cracks me up when she's ranting about something. Also lately, watching a certain British boy band's youtube video is guaranteed to send us into a fit of hysterical giggles.

Also recently, remembering that "byah!" yell at the end of Howard Dean's rally speech from back in 2004 makes us laugh so much.

I love the Closet Organizer! I don't know if Will Forte would enjoy living in my closet, though.

Sara B. Larson said...

Little kids are always guaranteed to make you laugh sooner or later. my boys are constantly cracking me up. And you ladies pretty much always make me laugh, too! P.S. Lisa, I'm always happy to help (by making you crave Benihana). In case you missed my response on my blog, I said if you want to fly out here, I'd be happy to take you to dinner. Totally worth it right? ;)

Simon C. Larter said...

That closet organizer vid was hi-LAAA-rious. Whoo! *wipes tear*

Other things that make me laugh: other guys getting kicked in the groin, Monty Python, and Dr. Horrible.

Two of my boys at breakfast this morning.
Ten-year-old: "Do you know what the soccer world cup is? It's the world's biggest..."
Four-year-old: "Cup?"
Heeheehee.

Elana Johnson said...

The word shrub, yo. :)

Lisa said...

Oooh, I love Sassy Gay Friend!

dogs in costumes, dudes.

Jemi Fraser said...

Kids. Always! :)

Little Ms J said...

My sassy gay friends, my dog wearing a cone around his head and running into things, Mr. J most of the time.

Sharon Kendrew said...

Oddly enough #3 does it for me too, only remove "Mia" and insert my husband's name.

Robin Mellom said...

"He hates these cans! Stay away from the cans!!!"

storyqueen said...

Stuff that's guaranteed to crack me up? Hmmm

Short-sheeting someone else's bed...especially if they deserve it. I am laughing about it as I type the word short-sheet. heee-heee......


There's a Monty Python/Star Wars thing on youtube that gets me...and that little kid dancing to the apple bottom jean song.

Christina Lee said...

Am I being stupid, yo? I don't even get what "Eye-yi-yi" means. More coffee for me, perhaps?
