"Feed Mayonnaise to the Tuna .... Call Starkist."

While trolling over at Sideshow Bob's place, I just had an idea for a new bumpersticker slogan. (I knew it was an idea, because my head hurt something fierce, and yet I hadn't had any ice cream today.)

Anyway, I have to get it out before it overtakes my brain's usual repository of useless knowledge and football stats. Here it is:
You can't spell HUBRIS without BUSH.
What do you think. Is it too literate? Too likely to invoke an "egghead loves his booky-wooks" comment? Does the word "Bush" in capital letters make you giggle like a schoolboy?

I think it's great! Pretty much everyone who made it through secondary school will be familiar with it, thanks to Oedipus and his momma-sexin' ways.

Otto Man said...

Good point. And given the weird relationship Dubya has with his parents -- loving his harpy of a mother and challenging his dad to fight him "mano-a-mano," the Oedipus thing fits. Plus, they both see the world about as clearly.

By the way, does anyone get the reference in this title? Have I gone to Dennis Miller levels of obscurity?

I like the title, although I don't get the reference, and I like the bumper sticker. Go for it, man.

If I weren't afraid of the inevitable vandalism, I'd like to print up a bunch of stickers that said, "Pray for our stupid fucking monkey president."

Otto Man said...

I guess I'm alone on this one. It's a quote from Michael Keaton in the criminally underappreciated "Night Shift"

Apparently, I screwed it up too:

Bill: Wait a minute! Why don't they just mix the mayonnaise with the tuna in the can... HOLD THE PHONE! Why don't they just FEED the tuna fish mayonnaise! [speaks into tape recorder] Call Starkist!

Thrillhous said...

Wait. NOW you're telling me I shouldn't feed mayo to my fish?

The first time I saw Night Shift, the only other thing I had seen Henry Winkler in was "Happy Days".

Seeing the Fonz sans self-confidence...that's the day I stopped believing in anything!
