Hardcore in the Honda Odyssey

From the backseat, en route to the playground (and yes, we could've walked, but the Slurpees we needed were at least a mile in the other direction)...

Sarah (sung to the tune of the alphabet song):
"A,B,C,D,E,F,G---Barney is my enemy...."

Darren (not to be outdone): "Joy to the World, 'cause Barney's dead. Let's cut off Barney's head!" [followed by peals of loud laughter]

Mommy (not a big fan of the dinosaur, but appalled nonetheless by the Barney brutality): "You guys, that is AWFUL. Please do not sing that song...especially at school or the playground. Little kids love Barney and that is just mean-spirited and violent."

Sarah: "Barney is for little kids. When I'm a teenager, I'm going to have a band called 'Barney's Dead.' On the drums there will be a big picture of Barney's face with X's for the eyes."

Darren (sold on the idea): "Can I be in it?"

Sarah: "Yes. I mean, no. It's going to be a girl band. Luke will play drums."

Mommy: "Luke's not a girl."

Sarah: "No, but he can really play drums."

Darren: "Actually, I think you should call the band 'Bloody Barney.' It sounds better."

Sarah (with conviction): "You will be the manager, Darren."

Oh, how quickly we forget the affections of our youth...

That is hilarious! Reminds me of Sarah's kids (aka the Goon Squad) and their affection for Death Metal Wednesday. ;-)

Oh gosh - this really put a smile on my face. Your kids are great thinkers girl. Off course, we are so into Barney at the moment.

I have to admit Barney really gets on my nerves so I am right there with your two! I can not wait to hear the future songs on Bloody Barney! Sweet picture - I hope you shared that photo with Darren!

Barney's Dead is a funny band name....I hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings by saying that.
I would buy their album.

Ode to Darren and Sarah

From selling their artwork
to forming two bands
Cheryl's got a couple of entrepreneurs
on her hands.

They sound hilarious!

BWaaaahahaha I'm fascinated and horrified all at once ;) How on Earth did you you keep from laughing out loud? I'd *so* buy the album - no matter which name they use :)

My boys also talk about blood and gore so much and they don't it even blink...this convo was hysterical.

Poor Barney! LOL!

Rebecca said...

This is great...sugar and spice and everything nice? I think not!

Tee hee! I think that's a riot. You can tell S&D that Abigail would come and sing for them. She's another one who LOVED Barney, and now detests him.
