HOLLA Mom of twin boys!!!

Dusty and Tesscorm...LMAO!

Hat trick...we have hockey in the states but not 100% sure what exactly that means...something to do with the number three...please don't tell my girlfriend who married a Stanley Cup winning all star hockey player. She told me she met someone when we were really young. She was getting married. I was all protective asking what he did. She said he plays hockey. Yeah but can you guys make it on that (she was a struggling model) she says yeah I think so. She told me his name I was like yeah o.k. whatever. I went home told my brother and he almost fainted.

Ahahaha, I thought hat trick was only a term used in cricket! Yeah in cricket it means you get three batters out in three consecutive balls. But do you know why it is called a hat trick!

Your secret is safe with me cause I have no idea about hockey or the Stanley Cup!

Wikipedia:

A hat-trick or hat trick in sport is the achievement of a positive feat three times during a game, or other achievements based on threes. The term was first used in 1858 in cricket to describe HH Stephenson's feat of taking three wickets in three balls. A collection was held for Stephenson, and he was presented with a hat bought with the proceeds.[1] The term was used in print for the first time in 1878.[2]
The term was eventually adopted by many other sports including association football, water polo, and team handball, but did not become popular in North America until the mid-1940s in the National Hockey League.


In hockey, fans throw their hats on the ice once a player has a hat trick.

Heavens to Murgatroyd
Meaning
An exclamation of surprise.

Origin
'Heavens to Murgatroyd' is American in origin and dates from the mid 20th century. The expression was popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss - a regular on the Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s, and is a variant of the earlier 'heavens to Betsy'.

The first use of the phrase wasn't by Snagglepuss but comes from the 1944 film Meet the People. It was spoken by Bert Lahr, best remembered for his role as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. Snagglepuss's voice was patterned on Lahr's, along with the 'heavens to Murgatroyd' line. Daws Butler's vocal portrayal of the character was so accurate that when the cartoon was used to promote Kellogg Cereals, Lahr sued and made the company distance him from the campaign by giving a prominent credit to Butler.

As with Betsy, we have no idea who Murgatroyd was. The various spellings of the name - as Murgatroid, Mergatroyd or Mergatroid tend to suggest that it wasn't an actual surname. While it is doubtful that the writers of Meet The People (Sig Herzig and Fred Saidy) were referring to an actual person, they must have got the name from somewhere.

No fewer than ten of the characters in Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera Ruddigore, 1887, are baronets surnamed "Murgatroyd", eight of whom (or is that which?) are ghosts. Herzig and Saidy were well versed in the works of the musical theatre and that plethora of Murgatroyds would have been known to them.

Where then did the librettist Sir William Gilbert get the name? It seems that Murgatroyd has a long history as a family name in the English aristocracy. In his genealogy The Murgatroyds of Murgatroyd, Bill Murgatroyd states that, in 1371, a constable was appointed for the district of Warley in Yorkshire. He adopted the name of Johanus de Morgateroyde - literally John of Moor Gate Royde or 'the district leading to the moor'.

Whether the Murgatroyd name took that route from Yorkshire to Jellystone Park we can't be certain. Unless there's a Betsy Murgatroyd hiding in the archives, that's as close as we are likely to get to a derivation.

I still like the term "fair dinghum". It had me SMH at Dusty for weeks!

From what I remember of my Sociology class, in upstate NY they say we don't have an accent.

TY for the idea, fw, and thread, DK!!

Tracy - considering that the thread jumped to two pages in the span of an hour, NOTHING seems to be something we're all good at!

Crohnsinct - may be wrong but I think Dusty once called Stephen's Aussie GI a 'fair dinkum'... I think it was a good thing!

Dusty - good for Sarah! Better than the alternative we've had to deal with... our dog has been sprayed by a skunk TWICE this summer!! UGGHHH!!!

WHAT, y'all have a party with out me!!!!
Don't you guys sleep.
Have you even payed attention to your families today!

I read where one of your kids asked for at least a sticker after her exam. FUNNY
That made me think of a e-mail I got. This is for older kids/Adults with a great sense of humor!

Funny thing to ask the GI DURING your scope:

1. Take it easy Doc.. You're boldly going where no man has gone before.

2. 'Find Amelia Earhart yet?'

3. 'Can you hear me NOW?'

4. 'Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?'

5. 'You know, in Arkansas , we're now legally married.'

6. 'Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?'

7. 'You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out...'

8. 'Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!'

9. 'If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!'

10. 'Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.'

11. 'You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?'


And the best one of all:
12. 'Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there?'

I've seen variations of this joke a few times... may even have seen it on here somewhere???


Man of the House

The husband had just finished reading a new book entitled, You Can Be the Man of Your House.

He stormed over to his wife in the kitchen and announced, "From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is Law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and...well... you get the point.

"Later, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe.... Then, you will massage my feet and hands. Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my hair?"

Without even looking up from her morning paper the wife replied, "The funeral director would be my first guess."
