Things That Sound Better in Texas

Filed under: Uncategorized — Brian @ 8:15 pm

The theoretical:

“I’ll ask him, but I don’t think he’ll be very keen. He’s already got one, you see?”

“Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries!”

“‘Fetche la vache!’ [Mooooooo]”

The actual

“‘Woah, there‘ (that was Arthur)”

“Git Away!”

“Where did you get the coconuts?”

Now I have to go back and listen to the rest of ’em… I hadn’t been following these very closely…



  1. I think Eric is just about ready for the Off-Broadway (way Off, in West Texas, Broadway) version of Spamalot. ;-)

    But I’m confused about the difference between the “theoretical” and the “actual” (the story of my life). Please elaborate.

  2. “actual” are things he actually said in the recording.

    “theoretical” are things he didn’t say, but maybe should. :-)

  4. Monty Python kind of brings that out in me. It’s the whole “a little something you didn’t quite expect” thing that I love about them. And about your reading!

  5. Ah, I wondered if that was it (the actual being what he said, the theoretical being where I was confused, knowing that they’re not just theortical lines from the movie, but actual). ;-)

    Eric, of course we’re funnin’ with you. We want more! :-)
