ERMAHGERD, KAREN!

Oh my god.  I mean ermahgerd.  Have you heard of the whole "Ermahgerd" thing?  I found out about it on our friend Kristi's blog "There's No Time For Pants."  I think Kristi's great--really nice and funny, and I love dropping by to read her, but she still uses that great device of Satan, otherwise known as CAPTCHA and sometimes I'm nearly pulling out my hair just to leave a comment, trying to decode the garbled message that proves I am NOT a robot.

SON OF A BITCH

MOTHERFAZOOKER!!!!!!

And the same goes for you too, my other paranoid, SPAM FEARING friends!

Spam is fun!  I have a spam message that I've never deleted that reads:

"It is as broad as it is long." 

Ooo....almost mystical, don't you think?  It tickles me because it was for a horrid post I clacked up about POOP, so it well...nevermind.

Wait...

What was I talking about?

OH yeah!  Ermahgerd!  So anyway, a few months ago, I saw a new post of Kristi's entitled "Ermahgerdify Yourself."  I did not know what the hell that meant.  I didn't even know if it was in English.  Turns out it was awesome.  If you don't know about it, here's what it is:


Ermahgerd (also known as “Gersberms” and “Berks”), a lisped pronunciation of “oh my god,” is an image macro series featuring a photo of a young woman holding several books from the children’s horror fiction series Goosebumps. The phonetically written captions are meant to sound like a speech impediment caused by the use of an orthodontic retainer, often using the snowclone template “Ermahgerd X.”

You can read more about Ermahgerd ridiculousness HERE.

It all started with this girl:

The more I look at that picture, the more it KILLS ME.  In case you haven't got that Ermahgerd lingo in your brain yet, and had to think about it for five minutes, that's "Goosebumps!  My Favourite Books!"

Seriously--do some google image searching for 'ermahgerd'.  It makes me laugh so hard, I weep.

So, I dug out some of my own photies of my sister and I and ermahgerdified them.



















TRACKSUIT # 1




FRIGGING TRACKSUIT #2



WHY DIDN'T I BURN THAT FRIGGING TRACKSUIT #3

You can come up with a caption for this one, because OH MY GOD, why is there a CLOWN WITH SANTA?!?!  A FROWNY FACE CLOWN?!?!?







Clearly, I was a great beauty in my 20's.  Okay, one photo has no caption. I was so disgusted by my tracksuit that I was at a loss.  Feel free to add a caption.

Now it's YOUR turn!  Do your own Ermahgerd post! It'll be so fun!  Or, if you don't want to blog about it, you are more than welcome to drop your Ermahgerd photies on my Facebook Page!  Hooray!

  3. Hmmm, I have to get a retainer next week (yes, at the age of 35. My stupid wisdom teeth, which the dentist swore didn't need to be removed, are now crowding everything, dangit).

    Ermagerd, am I going to sound like that?

    1. Oh the fear that that will happen to me, Vesta! I never had mine out. That always seems to come back and bite people in the ass. No, you won't sound like that. You're too cute to sound like that.

  5. I could hug you, but I wont. Let's keep this professional. I completely agree! It's been in my mind for so long (the captcha thing), but because I've complained about it in multiple posts in my blog, as well as in replies for people's posts that forced me to go through Captcha, I dont. But I hate it. And the newer ones, with numbers against some sort of wall are the worse.

    1. It's okay Tanner. You can hug me. We can bond over our mutual CAPTCHA-HATING lurv. I wanted to find an image of the newer ones with that stupid number on the wall, but couldn't. HATE THAT.

  6. The captchas are getting worse. I predict before long I will be using the handicapped or audio just so I can get it right.
    My house is in a bit of disarray at the moment. Not even sure where my photos are.

  8. I'm glad I'm not the only one totally incapable of deciphering the Spam Guard! Sometimes I think perhaps my Lasiks is failing me and my eyesight is getting wonky again because do they INTENTIONALLY make it so blurry you think you're going blind?! Or are Robots incapable of blurred vision? I dunno... in any account I Hope my Spam Guard is removed from my Comment section and deactivated, I tried to make it so but I'm Tech Challenged and all that... so without the G-Kid Force's Help I'm sometimes at a loss as I sit here trying to figure it all out on my lonesome?!??! *LOL* You're always good for a hearty Laugh my Friend... and a Great Compliment... you must drop by more often to remind me of how utterly Amazing and Wonderful I am!!! *Winks* I need you to be my PR Rep... you make me sound positively Saintly I tell ya! *Smiles* The Retainer Language is almost as funny to me as Valley Girl Lingo... and I actually have known people who speak like that {both Retainer Language and Valley Girl Language... Hilarious!} Hugs from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

    1. Dawn, I had no problem leaving a comment on your blog because you don't use that TOOL OF SATAN. Good for you.

      You're right, Valley girl language is also hilarious, but that Ermahgerd girl kills me everytime I see her.

  15. Caption for your Santa pic: Ermahgerd, Jersurs?! Too much? Anyway, if I can figure out how to turn off that captcha garbage, I totes will. Because I hate it on other people's blogs, too. And I ain't scared of spam!

    1. yeah, what an embarrassing whiner I am. Just ignore me. Woman, do you know what is completely annoying??? BLOGGER keeps putting all your replies in my spam folder! So, don't think I'm ignoring you--SNIFF! I just have to go through my spam folder every now and again and restore your comments to their rightful place. Wait...is there some irony in this? Whatever.

      Love your caption you suggested. You were the only one who did!
