Slyde's Anniversay Week Celebration, Finale



Well, here we are on our last day of my anniversary week Hall Of Fame postings.

I must say that this shit is exhausting! I don't know how the hell some of you post every damn day without going completely bat-shit. All I'm basically doing is copying and pasting here and I'm exhausted!

This was actually a pretty fun exercise, and I'm glad i decided to do something different this week to celebrate my 5 years of blogdom. Hopefully, you all got as much of a hoot out of it as i did, and maybe got to read some of my older stuff that you hadn't seen before.

And a Laurel and Hearty handshake to those few brave souls who sent me in some testimonials. I don't think any of you captured my true greatness, but i appreciated the effort nonetheless.....

Anyway, on to our last fan-favorite post of the week!

Does Whatever A Spider Can
Originally posted Nov 15, 2007


So, remember when I mentioned last time that my son's birthday was last week?

Well, he got a ton of presents. I mean a fucking TON. He's been in little-boy bliss ever since, ripping open one box of crap, playing with it for an hour, then chucking it aside to rip right into another.

Anyway, one of the toys he got were Spiderman/Green Goblin walkie talkies. They are basically 1 foot dolls, that when you speak into their chests they double as a walkie talkie.

So, I walk downstairs for breakfast this morning, and what do I spy with my little eye on the kitchen table?

This...

Did the kid HAVE to lay them out like that?

I stared at them for few minutes, transfixed by the dolls positioning.

Is there a way you can POSSIBLY look at that and tell me that it doesn't look like the Goblin is giving a right buggering to our friendly (apparently too friendly) neighborhood Spiderman?

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

But, never one to not take a chance to beat a dead horse, and much to my wife's embarrassment, here is how I spent the next 10 minutes, all the while cackling like a loon....

I'd like to think that Spidey would be manly enough to be the top in the relationship.

If I admit that I spent 5 minutes trying to position them to get the angle "right" before taking this picture, does that make me gay?

The artistic side of me particularly likes the way Spiderman's outstretched fist shows his masculine virility, while he pounds away at the Green Goblin atop a not-so-manly box of Ritz Bits.

Is it wrong of me to do things like this with my child's toys? Because right now, I'm seeing a differing set of opinions.

I see it as funny as Hell.

My wife thinks I'm an asshole.

You decide.

I have TOTALLY done the same thing with my kids' toys, so there's no way you're an asshole for doing it! I think it's hysterical!
Then again, I'm kind of an asshole. :)

Happy Blogiversary, Slyde!

I for one, have certainly enjoyed your Anniversary Week. Now go relax. I don't expect to hear from you for two weeks, with all this everyday posting has taken out of you.

Slyde said...

spidey weaves one heck of a web...Did you play with your gi joes like that when you were a kid???I think it was funny, but that in no way helps determine if you are not an ahole...

Slyde said...

invis: moxies? now THATS hot!

abes: no, doing that with 'dont ask dont tell' gi joes would most DEFINITELY be gay..

Heff said...

LMAO !! That kept your attention for awhile, didn't it ?

P.S. In the first pic, is that the black guy from "Revenge Of The Nerds" ?!?

Slyde said...

My little sister used to come home to find Barbie whoring around all day with my entire G.I. Joe platoon. I'm pretty sure Knight Rider and Han Solo got some too.

Personally, I don't think boys can really help it. Then again, I always knew Barbie's true colors.

You were playing with your son's dolls? I mean, "action figures?" LOL. Okay, I laugh but I would have probably done the same thing. Happy five year blogiversary. I hope my blog is still as good as yours after five years. :)

This was a cool idea - to revisit some of you old past "hits" - I mean, it was lazy; but I don't think that surprised anyone.

I mean, as long as it's not like - a week - before you actually post something new.

Oh. Wait.
