If you’re a #parent, then you’ll understand: The “Parent Rap” (VIDEO)

CARTOON_FAMILY.53174347_std

My beautiful wife was homeschooling our two sons when I left for work this morning and she was doing a wonderful job, as always. For whatever reason, this video then jumped into my mind, …and made me chuckle.

Our boys are older than the ones in the clip, but I can still relate to every word. We posted this a couple years back and, after watching it again, it seems to hold up nicely.

I’ll reiterate here what I said back then: “…if ALL hip-hop was this entertaining, I’d listen to it waaaay more often…

Thanksgiving Comedy CLASSIC: Louie Anderson on the ‘Tonight Show’

Louie AndersonComedian Louie Anderson just makes me laugh.

His routines were (usually) perfectly clean, and his animated kid’s show “Life With Louie” was extremely funny, yet sweet. Still can’t understand why they don’t formally release it on DVD: it won two Emmy’s, after all.

Anyway, the following clip is from the ‘Tonight Show’ on Thanksgiving Day, 1987…, and it’s just as funny now as it was then.

Happy Thanksgiving, gang.

Just for fun: Do YOU know all the U.S. Capitals?

Just For Fun

I needed a brief reprieve from all of the recent craziness, and figured you might, as well.

So we’re re-publishing a very old “fun” post of ours, which should be a nice change-of-pace AND let you see if you were truly paying attention back in Geography Class. 

Enjoy…. 

Did you ever just want to have that “sense of accomplishment”?

angry-nun-with-ruler 1Well, I currently have about 137 different Number One Priorities on my “Do It Yesterday” list (none of which are even close to being completed , by the way), so I really wanted needed that “accomplished” feeling.

So I thought, “Hey, a nice, easy test will satisfy my superego“. Which it could have, except for the fact that I managed to get a couple wrong.

…..Sister Ruth and Sister Dominic (my 6th grade teachers) would NOT be happy with me right now.

Art Of Manliness: “How to ask out a lady…” (VIDEO)

I can’t help it: these videos just make me laugh.

As a blissfully happy, married dude of 19 years, this clip obviously doesn’t apply to me anymore. But every guy remembers the dry mouth and sweaty hands he got prior to asking out a girl back in high school or college, …or later.

The Three Little Pigs, Shakespeare-style

3 Little Pigs

art by M. Engelbreit

In case you missed this when it went viral on YouTube, John Branyan, a Christian comedian, does this wonderful routine which is probably á propos of nothing whatsoever in the news this week.

However, I’d like to point out three very important factors which make it immensely apt for inclusion on our blog today:

1.  It is highbrow humor, and we here at Thabto like to give a nod to culture, from time to time.

2.  It is patriotic.  But you won’t know that unless you actually click on the link and watch the entire video. Go do your duty!

Enjoy, folks!  Plenty of time to be serious again tomorrow…

The Art of Manliness: “Do It Now!”

The video series from ‘The Art Of Manliness” is extremely clever, and seems to be attempting to bring some traditional behavior and knowledge back into vogue.

Starring Jordan Crowder (the brother of comedian Steven Crowder), we’ve already featured one of these last week: “How to shave like a REAL man“. The one embedded below is similar in tone, funny, and just as applicable.

Goodness knows we all have a tendency to procrastinate from time to time…

Just for fun: “How to Shave Like a REAL Man”…

Gillette Safety RAzor Ad 5Personal disclosure: I’ve used a safety razor, the mug, the brush, etc.,.. and honestly, I’m just too lazy to go through that every day. Give me two minutes and my trusty Philips Norelco Cool Skin razor, any day.

BUT, I will readily admit: (A) this method does, indeed, provide a wonderfully close shave, and (B) that there is a certain aesthetic satisfaction that comes with doing it this way.
