Questions you always wanted to know the answer to...

Here are mine:1) Why does the phone always rings at my desk at the exact moment I take a huge mouthful of my lunch?2) Why when you lose an earring do you often find the earring back still stuck to your ear? Why isn't it the other way around and the back is lost not the earring?3) Who let the dogs out? WHO?4) Who thought of catch phrases like, 'that's what she said?' Was it one really funny guy or a bunch of people on their own simultaneously?

    That Meatloaf song.  "I would do anything for love, but I won't do THAT." What?  I always liked to think it was buttsecks that he was referring to.

    There are these two little pieces of meat on a chicken that are sooo tender and tasty.  They are on the back, right on the "hip" area, sit in thier own little bone indent, and depending on the size of the chicken, are under a bit of piece of thigh that wraps around.  I would love to know what these pieces are called.

    Why coworkers feel the need to comment on your lunch.  Like, "Mmmm, that smells good" or "What are you eating?"  "Looks good!"  Gah!  I don't know if it's because they feel the need to make small talk or what, but WHY???

    Why does the phone always rings at my desk at the exact moment I take a huge mouthful of my lunch?I'll second this, only switch "take a huge mouthful of my lunch" to "shut the bathroom door."

    As far as the meatloaf song, the end of the song explains that the woman thinks that he'll get tired of the relationship, will move on and will "screw around" on her.  His response is that he won't do that.At least, that's how I've always interpreted it:  After awhile you'll forget everything.It was a brief interlude And a midsummer night's fling,And you'll see that it's time to move on.[Boy]I won't do that. I won't do that.[Girl}I know the territory, I've been around,It'll all turn to dust and will all fall down,Sooner or later, you'll be screwing around.[Boy] I won't do that. No, I won't do that.

    Also, that "you're so vain""You probably think this song is about you, you're so vaaaaiiinnn"Um.... hello. The song IS about them. And a vain person thinks they are all that, and wouldn't think a song about a bad person is about them. Am I right?AM I RIGHT?!?

    when you are right you are right atobias. GAH! or how about the Nestea and beer commercials that boast their product is the 'coldest.' COME ON, it totally depends on if you put the durn thing in the fridge or not and what setting said fridge is on.

    Haha Kiki - I actually suck at trivia.  My DH, on the other hand, is a wealth of useless knowledge and facts.  I just happen to have gone through a stage in my life in which I was obsessed with meatloaf, and that song in particular.  Further research, thank you wikipedia, states the following about "That": Each verse mentions two things that he would do for love, followed by one thing that he will not do. The title phrase repetition reasserts that he "won't do that" previously stated one thing. Each mention of "that" is a reference to the particular promise that he made earlier in the same verse. Jmmy always said, "You know what? Nobody's gonna get it." And he was right. —-Meat Loaf[9]

    RE: Meatloaf, it makes the song so much more interesting to have laurenclaire's interpretation instead of Tide's. I would like to know who decided that the name "Becky" was synonmous with giving head in the relatively new rap song that is out now.

    atobias, it's a song by the rapper Plies. He says "Becky" about a million times, but in a bunch of different ways referencing BJs. NOT COOL.
  • Options
    Its a rap song by someone names Plies. I was so confused the first time i heard it, but by the end of the song I had figured it out. People still call the radio station to find out what it means.

    Huh. I have never heard of it. But I have only been listening to sports talk radio for months now, so that would do it.

    My husband's co-workers ask him now if he gets "Becky" at home. I don't find it amusing. Well, maybe a little, but I have to act indignant all the same. I know wonder if people think about that song when they see me.

    4) I always thought the "That's what she said" phrase came from Steve Carrel's character on The Office...

    georgia, I have 2 aunts named becky, which makes that song particularly disturbing. I have to change the channel whenever it comes on. Not a visual I want. I can believe that guys would ask that of your man. The are immature like that.. like its any of their business anyway..

    Tide, thank you for your oh-so-informative interpretation of the song.  Really. (I have to clarify here that I'm not being sarcastic.  When I'm sincere, people often confuse it with being glib, even on the intarwebz)  I've been wondering about it for years.  Still though, because I have freshman in college frat boy sense of humor, I'm just gonna continue with the buttsex notion.

    No problem Lauren!  Although I have to say the buttsecks theory is somewhat flawed.  Every guy that I know is like "HEY, buttsecks.  Bonus!"  I could understand if it were the woman saying that she wouldn't do that...

    Tide, you're totally right. It certainly is flawed reasoning.  I think I came to that conclusion because I was singing it from my own perspective.  Plus, buttsex is just funny to me.  I like to bring it up in conversation because it's still taboo enough to freak people out.
