Looney For Tunes

While I was away last week, my wife bought me the 4-disc DVD collection of Looney Tunes, Golden Collection, Volume Two.

Is it cool to dub your wife "The Shit"? Even when talking about cartoons?

Not that I wasn't dropping massive hints for weeks now. The idea came to me when I got a glance at what my kids were watching, loosely categorized as "cartoons" and I thought that we could all sit together and watch Looney Tunes.

Man, I'm WAYYYY too psyched about this.

    Not know what Looney Tunes are !?!?!? Dear Sir you have me confused with the prepubescent miscrients that round out the last part of my generation. I have at least 12hrs worth of Looney Tunes VHS cassetes (too bad about ab hr or so converges since they werent all made with the same ones at the same time).

    Any wife who buys the Golden Collection must at least temporaroly awarded the title of "The Shit"... until you get told to do some mundane chore(ie cute the grassm yuck)

    P.S. I am jealous but not for long, Xmas is around the bend :) besides I probably have more Hanna Barbera than you :P

    P.P.S Did I just date myself ?? Impossible im too young to be dated... RIGHT !?!?!?

    We buy them at the fabulous Wal Mart and then laugh at the serious lack of political correctness. I think you can buy the single dvds (not the volumes...) for around $3 bucks and some change. They are well worth it. I love the really old ones where they make fun of Hitler and the ~Japs~. That would cause an uproar in today's society. Could you feature if they made one ripping Bin Laden or Hussein??? All the fuss there would be...heh heh heh. I say DO IT.

    If it was anything but Looney Toons, I would say "I can top that" however since it it the afore mentioned Looney Toons, I can come just short of matching it:
    My wife didn't want me to spend $25 on a new VCR since we are going "ALL DVD" however I have a complete Columbia House set of BABYLON 5 on VHS. Here is where I ALMOST match you. . .her solution was to spend $200 on the complete set on DVD and donate my VHS set to the local library. Not quite as good as getting Looney Toons, but I think she still qualifies as "The Shit!"

    Can I count as your local library ???? I loved that show, it had a great run, still wished it could've been longer. Did you get to see the spin off ? Crusade I believe was the name, it was decent however it just didnt have the "IT" that I was looking for, just the same situation with Stargate now, they've lost the IT(aka Richard Dean Anderson).

    Ghost,

    I was dinging on a.maria for not knowing, not you.

    I never got into Hanna Barbera, but I remember them. Just like I wasn't a Seseme Street kid, but Electric Company i would not miss.

    Laura, the one I really wanted was Daffy Duck as Robin Hood. "Yikes and away!!!" I laugh just rmemebering it.

    And Bugs gave away plenty of kisses, sometimes in drag, sometimes not.

    Ray, I have the first few seasons of Star Trek The Next Generation on VHS. What sucks is that I had to stop watching them because I was collecting them. Then I stopped collecting and so there are ones I never saw.

    I am very jelous! I remember spending many Saturday mornings watching those cartoons. They just don't make them like that anymore. I believe the more politically correct way to call your wife is "the bomb" I have found that using "shit" in any form to describe a woman results in negative reaction. ShOt GlAsS

    Chris,

    Maybe THAT'S what I've been doing wrong. Damn, who knew?

    OK, OK, I'll go to the PX today and look at their selection of shot glasses. But it will probably be the plain jane glass with the Marine Corps logo on it.

    Now that would be the shit.

    UPDATE:
    I took in my Babylon 5 VHS to donate to the library and asked who I could talk to about donations, the lady said I could talk to her but I would have to fill out a form since they had rules on what they could take. I said that it was not a problem, but I was only donating one thing. . .A Complete Collection of Babylon 5 on VHS. You all should have seen the look on her face. Not being one to leave well enough alone, I said as innocently as I could, "Do you think they will turn this down?" At this point my son distracted me, but when I got back to the counter the lady was busy with a customer, so she told her assistant to give me a receipt and that I didn't have to fill out the form. I am now the proud owner of a tax deductable receipt for 57 Video tapes valued at $20 each. I hope the lady gets over her shock.
