One Dim Bulb

Seriously y’all. There are times that I’m dimmer than a Scooby Doo Night Light.
I was talking to my Dad the day after Princess got stung by the jellyfish. I mentioned that we took her to a Pirate themed restaurant to eat afterwards to cheer her up and he asked me if there was a guy walking around with a guitar singing… there actually was, he said: “Okay, glad to know where he’s working”. I just ‘uh huh’d’ it and went on chatting with him, not giving it a second thought…
It’s what.. a week or so later and today I saw that commercial. Yup, you know this one.
BING BANG BOOM! Light bulbs went on in my head, that would be what my dad was referring to.
Seriously, sometimes I can be so slow.
Does anyone else hear George Lopez saying ‘Dee Dee Dee’?.
So, do I call him and admit my momentary lapse of synapse firing? Or wait for him to read this and see if he calls me to snicker?
What would you do?

** Oh, speaking of bulbs… have y’all switched to CFL’s yet? If not.. what the heck are you waiting for? Get on it! Save yourself and the earth some much needed GREEN!

  1. I don’t watch many commercials, but after you said it, I remember that one. But I’m a dum dum. 🙂

    You should play it off.


  2. I love that commercial! It’s got one of those songs that get stuck in your head. There’s another funny one too about a guy stuck in his in-law’s basement because he should have checked his wife’s credit before they got married.

  3. I have seen the commercial, but would not have put two and two together. Your Dad has a quick with!

    I’d let him know, he’ll probably get a laugh out of it!

  4. If I see that commercial, I walk around singing that song all day long. Drives everyone, myself included, crazy. But, I don’t know if I would have gotten it either, if that makes you feel any better.

  5. I LOVE that commercial. I walk around singing that stupid song for days. I love the newer one with the junkie car, too. Funny stuff.

  6. I immediately got it, but that’s because I think the advertisers who designed those commercials are great at what they do.

  7. Missed it – even after you pointed it out. LOL! (In my defense, though, I’d never seen that commercial.)

    Bulbs – we switched, but I left ONE in the kitchen that actuall comes on when you flip the switch so I’m not cursing THAT dimness as well as my own! ;o)
