So, a few nights ago, Lydia posted on Facebook that we had been invited again to go on TV and pretend that we were experts and professional. We also might have suggested that we turn that appearance into a quasi-drinking game...and then YOU GUYS chimed in with such a colorful array of words and phrases that we spent commercial breaks reminding each other of what things to say.

Lydia: "Don't forget about akimbo."
Kate: "That's easy. You're all akimbo right now..."
Lydia: "Oh, we need to say 'meow' instead of 'now' like the kids do.
Kate: "I'm not saying meow."
Host: "Do I want to know what this is about?"
K&L: "NO!"

A couple quick thoughts:
  • We might have gone completely off the rails, and they might not have us back.
  • The list of words you gave us for the Drinking Game took up an entire piece of legal sized paper.
  • We're pretty sure we said about 25 of those words.
  • There was a fill-in host. She was probably very nice. She was also probably very scared.
  • If you actually drink every time we said a word, you might want to consider having EMTs on standby.
  • You might also want to consider sitting on the floor so you don't fall as far.
  • It's totally possible that we could just show you screen grabs and you still might pee a little.
  • If you ever thought Kate could waver on PajamaJeans, this will make it ABUNDANTLY clear.
  • Guru Louise, you owe Kate $5. She didn't think Kate could insert a Long Duck Dong reference into a television interview. Oh, Guru...don't you know Long Duck Dong can be inserted anywhere? Oh, that sounded gross, didn't it? I'll take it in two $2 bills and 2 quarters, 3 dimes, three nickels and 5 1984 super shiny clean pennies. Get to work.
And now we happily present the modern day version of the esteemed Lincoln-Douglass debate.  Minus anything that made that dignified, timeless, classy, educational or worthy of respect...

Tomorrow...the rules of the pool. And another chance to count some words that should never, ever be uttered on TV. A hint: we said "jackhole" -- oh, even yesser we did.

  1. Holy crap!!! That was the funniest freakin' thing I have ever seen, and your best TV interview yet! The Long Duck Dong reference was the best. And you guys are right - the new co-host in the purple had NO IDEA what to make of you! Kate - your facial expressions were priceless! And Lydia - way to rock the Pajama Jeans!

  2. That sub host didn't say one damn word. Hysterical. I wonder if she was thinking, "What the hell have I gotten myself into here? I went to journalism school for THIS?"

  3. Lmao! The hosts had NO idea what a boob stain was!

  4. You ladies are AWESOME with a side of FANASTIC and another side of HILARIOUS!!! Thanks for standing up for the real moms in the world :)

    P.S. Kate needs therapy about her Pajamajeans aversion. I say that in a loving way. Lydia wore makeup and a heel for you! I think Kate should have to wear Pajamajeans for a week so she can revel in their wonderful-ness.

  5. "Paaaaaants?"

    Screw the $5, I'm sending you my first million.

  6. Missed half of it because 3 yo was driving dump truck, but did catch something about whether or not other moms wear their pj jeans. Yes, yes I do. And I have the best boyfriend EVER, he thinks they are hot. Seriously.

  7. Absofreakinlutely amazing! I love you guys!

  8. hahahahaha - that's hives (which by the may, means super duper extraordinarily fantabulous awesome!!)


  9. LMAO You two are hysterical! :) Did the host in purple even say a word? I swear I don't think she said more than a sentence if she did. That was awesome! :D Thanks for the laughs ladies!!

  10. I about DIED when Lydia said she even remembered to do the back of her hair! And as I was thinking, "That is *so* me," I realized I was sitting here in my Surrender Mommy outfit. Except for the crocs - I kicked them off when I came in the house. (But don't worry, Kate, nobody saw me when I was out.)

    P.S. I'm *fairly* sure that my word verification thing (ritypsic) isn't even a real word. Wouldn't it be cool if you could get it to use words from the MDR? Oh, even yesser.

  11. Lydia even remembered to do the back of her hair!? bwahahahahahaha. Priceless.

  12. Kate you rocked it! I can't believe how many of the words your got in there. You were a total ninja. Lydia I peed a little when you went on about the boobstain. Both of you made the start of my day fun-tastic. Frikken awesome!

  13. That was hysterical!!! That poor co-host looked like a deer in headlights, right before it gets hit by a mack truck!

  14. "You ladies are AWESOME with a side of FANASTIC and another side of HILARIOUS!!!"
    Could not have said it better!
    I. Love. You. Guys!

  15. Holy crap. those poor hosts. They didn't know what hit them!

    I like how comfortable you two seem to be getting with the cameras on. Way to go!

    And ... hilarious. Bacon on your husband's face. frickin' hilarious

  16. The Long Duck Dong reference was by far my favorite. Au-to-mo-bile? AWESOME.
