Cinnamon And Bedpan: A Justice League For A New Generation

You know how New Kids On The Block, that horrific Boy Band from our youth (assuming that you are around my age, and that your youth therefore coincides with my own), tried to remake their image at one point and decided to go by the more concise but equally awesome name NKOTB? Well, something similar has apparently happened with Superman and Batman. Some time in the last month or so, they had a meeting with their PR manager, Max, and decided that they needed an image makeover. Same costumes, same crime-fighting dedication, same inexplicable flying/fighting/kissing/falling/dancing activities whilst in Max's hands, but new names. Max, publicity wizard that he is, has rechristened Superman and Batman, and has decided that their names will henceforth be pronounced Cinnamon and Bedpan.

That's right, folks. Cinnamon and Bedpan, fighting for truth, justice, savory desserts, and incontinence.

And The American Way, of course.





P.S. Max's unique pronunciations have also been at work on The Transformers, who shall henceforth be known as The Assformers. I didn't include The Assformers in the Blog Post Proper, because I have no pictures of anyone Tillmanish interacting with a transformer, and because I shudder to think what I would find on tracksy the next time I looked. I didn't feel right about leaving The Assformers out altogether, though, because they are doing their part to save and maintain the world, too, and they should be acknowledged. Plus, The Assformers made Ian laugh until he literally cried, and I am pretty sure that there are at least two or three of you out there who share his juvenile sense of humor and will have a brighter day just knowing that somewhere out there, a small boy is accusing a robotic toy of sculpting buttocks. More than meets the eye, indeed.

As much as i would like to think that age and maturity have wiped out my juvenile sense of humour, this blog brought out a smile..er..chuckle...ok a full fledged laugh.

Assformers LOOOOOOOOL thats a good one. Have to say i too had a good chuckle on that one. And by the way i liked the NKOTB ;/ As a matter of fact i just played poker against one Donnie Wahlberg and took his celebrity butt out at one hollywood poker game. That will be $25 bucks please Donnie. I guess he spends his time like i do, enjoying the simple things in life. He has moved on from his former glory days. Assformers hahahaha

I used to babysit these kids who were obsessed with NKOTB, and all they ever wanted to do was watch this video of a NKOTB concert, featuring interview clips with each band member, several truly terrifying fans, and both an acoustic AND a regular version of "Hangin' Tough". I may never fully recover.

Assformers...more than meets the brown eye!

Butt and fart jokes are my speciality being a school teacher and all. I am sure that by this time someone has already made the connection to the two sides who are at war...

The Autobutts and the Deceptabuns!

Autobutts...Let's roll out! (TP that is!)

BTW, Jen says she once enjoyed a NKOTB concert at Arco Arena. She lived to tell about it. Though, her left ear still rings with "The Right Stuff" when she is in a quiet place. Luckily, Mason keeps things noisy here!

Okay I laughed until Lisa had to come in here and see what was so funny..then she did too. We're allowed to be juvenile though right? we're only 19.


ps. chelsa i was once puked upon by a kid i was babysitting after her litterly ate 3 bags of popcorn. I can imagine being puked on would be similar to being forced to watch an acoustic version of "Hangin' Tough". I sympathise with you.

Moral of the story: babysitting kind of sucks.

That's an awesome shirt that little Max is wearing. Too bad the VERY occasional giving of novelty gifts isn't enought to win me the cherished Godmother title. No matter, I'll just bide my time as the mysterious, far away aunt who's not really an aunt for a little bit longer. But I've got dibs on the next one ;)

okay, i realize i'm late to the party on this one, but i can't believe you are hating on NKOTB. talk about fabulous boy bands! that tape sits right next to my milli vanilli tape. ah how i miss thee, awkward teenage years.

Chelsa said...

I gotta say, I am shocked -- and dismayed -- by how many of my nearest and dearest have come out in fervent defense of NKOTB. I sort of thought it was an understood and uncontested truth that they were terrible. My whole faith in humanity is crumbling.

penny said...

You just gotta have the Right Stuff to be Hangin Tough Chelsa its a fact of life that some people get swayed with the dance moves and the boy band glow, but i have moved on from them. There is always a group to take over....as a matter of fact, are you aware the Backstreet Boys have a new CD out?? Now thats a boy band :)
