Pop Culture, Apparently, Rules My Life

So, I stole this little activity from other, funner blogs that I read...list pop culture references that you use in your everyday life that you expect people in your life to recognize. Dude. I'm pretty sure I couldn't SPEAK without pop cultural references, so here goes:

  1. Well, we don't have cable, so we have to make our own fun.
  2. Are you freakin' out, maaaaaaaaaaan?
  3. I still haven't said, "I told you so," though I have prepared a little "I was right" dance that I can show you later.
  4. Well, this sucks out loud.
  5. I firmly believe in a ruling class. Especially since I rule.
  6. You're a WHORE!
  7. Sometimes I cry because I'm not sure there's a cat heaven.
  9. GOD! You're like Ruth Gordon, just standing there with the tannis root! Make a noise!*
  10. My cat's breath smells like cat food!
  11. To me, you are the teacher in the "Charlie Brown" cartoon.
  12. You taste like burger. I don't like you anymore.
  13. On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
  14. Communism was just a red herring!
  15. The world only spins forward...
  16. Wiiiiiilt Chaaamberlain...
  17. YOUR tattoo says, "DUDE!" YOUR tattoo says, "SWEET!"
  18. *GASP!* You'd be a GREAT bench manager, Charlie Brown!
  19. It's...Sexual Harassment Panda!!!
  20. You want to make out with me right now, don't you?
Wow, I'm really a geek. Anyone know what these are from? And Mame? You'd BETTER do one of these too! S'fun!

*I use this one at work all the time, because people are CONSTANTLY sneaking up on me. No one gets it. And it's a twofer, because it's also a Rosemary's Baby reference.

Okay, this post freaked me out a little because not only do I recognize too much of that list, I start listening to everything that comes out of my own mouth and realize that I say nothing remotely original. Here's a partial list of my own obsessions... I mean, quotes.

“I didn’t jump to conclusions. I took a small step, and conclusions there were.”
“I have a strict policy that no one cries alone in my presence.”
“Moisturize me.”
“That’s just insane troll logic.”
“What the FRAK?”
“Do, or do not. There is no try.”
“Can you vague that up a bit?”
“You’re going the right way for a smacked bottom.”
“I’m paralyzed with not caring very much.”
“It looks like a flamingo threw up in here” which is interchangeable with “This place looks like it’s been hosed down with Pepto-Bismo!”
“Join the club, we’ve got jackets!”
“Stalking is illegal in all fifty states.”
“It’s not ‘show-friends’ it’s ‘show-business’”

HA! I know, it was a sad realization that pretty much everything that comes out of my mouth was written by Joss Whedon. And, I also recognized most of the shit on your list! But. PLEASE tell me that the last one is from "Showgirls." There is not enough of "Showgirls" in my day-to-day life.

Unfortunately I have to admit that it's Jerry Maguire. I don't know why, it just is...
