“Sherman, that’s the biggest load of dog shit I’ve ever heard in my entire life. And I’m a dog.”
I am a distractible dude. This blog post will prove it. This was originally to be another 36-year-old Virgin post. I got a couple sentences in and made a comment about joining Peabody and Sherman in the Wayback Machine and I paused to find a photo of them.
As I was searching for the photo I came across this video and I swear to God that as I watched it I almost peed my pants. I laughed so hard that Drama Queen came from downstairs to see what was going on.
This was simply too good to waste, so I changed blog course and I promise that I will hook you up with another 36-year-old Virgin post in the very near future…
I’m not normally a political kind of guy. I know what’s going on in the world but I don’t study enough to make the type of arguments you see on CNN, MSN and Fox. Typically I hear someone going on and on making their point and when they finish I have one of two responses: “Whatever” or “Yeah? Blow me”.
I started watching this video and it was so amazingly funny, but more so to me because of my age (which will NOT be disclosed here). Suffice it to say that I remember the events of which they speak and that made it all the funnier to me.
The Peabody and Sherman cartoons always started with Peabody (the extremely intelligent dog) saying, “Peabody here.” His sidekick, Sherman (a boy who asked loads of dumbass questions) was constantly getting a history lesson from the dog. There were 91 installments of Peabody and Sherman, according to Wikipedia.
I think it’s safe to assume that this video is what we would call a “parody” and is not one of the original cartoons, which originally appeared on Rocky and his Friends and The Bullwinkle Show in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s and later on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show in the 1970’s.
Enjoy this as Peabody blames the whole Iran/Iraq thing on Jimmy Carter, George Herbert Walker Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Ronald Reagan and the Taliban.
Please listen for the phrases, “Well Sherman, I never said the Soviet Union was very intelligent. Did I?”
“Ronald Reagan was a born again Christian, but in a fight between the Soviets and the Devil, Reagan would no doubt have made secret arms shipments to hell.”
And finally, “…lopping off the odd limb for relatively minor offenses and providing a safe haven for all the other nut job Islamic extremists terrorists like Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.”
Don’t forget to listen for the corny line at the end, which was a staple of the Peabody & Sherman cartoons.
