Day 236: f*ing friday :: funny, funny

24 Aug

Today continues the weekly series, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. In Year One, I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the words Fire works.

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the words:
Funny, Funny.

As in, funny, funny, ha, ha.

That’s what we said in high school.

It was some sort of girl code speak between my basketball teammates, you know, when a joke was meant to be funny.  It started with, “Wait. You’re gonna laugh. This is funny, funny, ha, ha.”

And, I have no idea where that came from, who said it first or who made it up.  Did we quote it from a movie?  Did we dream it up at a slumber party?  Did we repeat one of our older sisters?

Who knows?

But, on this F*ing Friday, it was the first phrase that popped into my head after watching this car dance video by Harvard’s baseball team (thanks Karen for sharing).

It also made me remember those road trips, hours spent on the road for basketball games in high school and college — and all the lip-synching and singing that went along with it.  It is just WHAT happens when you pack a van or load a bus full of 18-year old athletes.

Versions of this video have made their way around the web and back again, in parodies and spin offs and other fun such stuff. It makes me think, who needs to make music videos these days?  Certainly not Carly Rae Jepson, she has a whole team out there working for her.

You’ve got the Lock Haven Women’s Lacrosse version, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders version, the SMU and Harvard remix with both hands and feet.  Even Justin Bieber and Katy Perry got in on the action.  And, the one by that guy too.

But, my favorite, may just be the 8-year old girl response:

You’ll laugh. You might cry.
But, somehow, they are all funny, funny, ha, ha.

I promise.

In a way, to me, it just seems like more proof that we are all connected — even through a fun, simple, summer song.

And, just in case you haven’t seen enough of it yet, here’s the original:

Happy F*ing Friday.
May fun find you.
