You know you're obsessed with FOTC when...

Postby kellysouthpaw » Sat May 02, 2009 4:58 pm

Copying this from the other thread - hope raven and Michael don't mind 8) This is just too genius to get buried in another thread. Feel free to add to this list!

You Know You're Obsessed with Flight of the Conchords When:
(From Michael)
* You have an irrational hatred of Australia.
* Your e's start sounding like i's.
* You mutter "present" at every office meeting.
* You laugh whenever you see Concord grape jam at the grocery store.
* You forget several letters while swearing.
* You know what Wednesday is.
* You've tried Muesli.
* You know how much the cup was.
* You can't give someone "the finger" without adding wings to it.

(From ravenhpltc24 )

- You always know the dance floor bro-hoe ratio.
- Jemaine sometimes visits your dreams (as Bowie) and offers mediocre advice.
- You know when you're not in high-finance.
- You now know basic French expressions.
- You love "Top Gun."
- You really want to hear parts 1 through 5 of Albi the Racist Dragon.
- You've seached your local CVS for Femident Toothpaste.
- You carry a Mel-like backpack, complete with binoculars, just in case.

I'm more than a little embarrassed to admit that I've done quite a few of these :oops:

Here's my little addition here:

- You have a friend whose name is Barbara, but you call her Brahbrah anyway (*guilty*)
- You play your cutlery like instruments from time to time (like the intro to S1)
- You dance a little while eating
- You find yourself making similar facial expressions (I find myself doing this - doing Jemaine's eyebrow raises and Bret's 'confused' or 'disgusted' smirk)

Every time you make pizza, it somehow ends up looking like Jemaine's face. :lol: :yawinkle:

You start saying "yis" all the time even if your family and friends think you're losing it.

When someone calls your name you answer back "prisint!"

When your 10 yr old starts quoting lines from the show or songs.

In the supermarket you and your kid start coming up with french names for the foods....and other nonsensical french words.

-You wear shirts with animals on them.
-You take tours of band shells.
-In your kitchen, you just stand there (because you've sold your chair.)


Laura I like your signature quote about friends. Here is my favorite friends quote:
"Friends are God's way of apologizing for your relatives." :D

Ha! That's good. :D
I've used that at the other boards I frequent for the last 7 or 8 yrs....and it's so true. The net has brought me many fabulous friends I wouldn't have met otherwise.

~ You now look for Jemaine-like sunglasses.
~ You start looking for cool animal shirts at the thrift store.
~ You wonder how affordable a vaca in NZ would be.
~ You've been researching and buying all things Conchords/Jemaine/Bret/Rhys/Kristen/etc....

I think visiting NZ would be amazing. I have a bit of a fascination with isolated places, that aren't on the normal tourist radar. NZ and Iceland are on my list of places to see before I die.

Here's more:

You know you're obsessed with FOTC when...

-You have a green and yellow striped blanket on your bed and a pastel colored crocheted quilt.
-You start making various accessories to look like they blend in with parts of your body.

- You now recognize the importance of brushing your teeth with your partner (and it ain't got nothing to do with dental hygiene!) :yawinkle:
