Open Thread: Being Saucy

There are certain jokes that run through my head far more than is probably healthy. Most of them are either from Mel Brooks movies orĀ Airplane!

At the grocery store earlier, I saw a jar of bearnaise sauce and automatically thought, “Don’t be saucy with me, Bearnaise.”

Johnny fromĀ Airplane! is pretty much my patronus. While traveling last week, my daughter asked what my plane looked like and I told “A giant Tylenol.” She was perplexed, but my husband was highly amused. I’ve totally been known to make a hat, brooch, and pterodactyl out of random papers. And pretty much every other joke in these clips is in regular rotation in my house.

What’s running through your head this week?

After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

My frequently cited lines are from Blazing Saddles, but paraphrased:

“Moretta only pawn in game of life.”
“Now who can argue with that?”

I would like to say, “Baby, please! I am not from Havana!” but I don’t know what that means, exactly.
