Funny video Monday

Better rate this post PG-13, not sure you want to have the kids watch these, either they will get ideas or start asking questions.

After her trip up to Portland to visit granddaughter E we were discussing tantrums. E is three and recently started falling to the ground and screaming. I don’t know where she picked this up, but evidently it is fairly universal. After searching for some technical articles we went to YouTube and searched for temper tantrums, and came up with hundreds from around the world. The general feeling is that there are two types of temper tantrums, ones expressing frustration and tantrums trying to exert control. This video seemed to demonstrate a tantrum where the kid is trying to exert control, as titled, why waste a temper tantrum if nobody is around to see it?

As long as we are going for comedy today we can still do some music. This is one of my favorite songs from Groucho - Lydia oh Lydia! If you look at the little pictures at the bottom after there will be a version by Kermit and the Muppets.

I don’t know how I bounced over to these guys, but the Flight of the Conchords sings about something every guy thinks about, when he’s down to his socks it’s Business Time

Don’t know why, but I think of Oh the Joys when I hear that last song. So either she pointed to it, or something she said about K brings it to mind.

OK, since Teri can post links to Monty Python, I can too, well, at least Eric is still in the group though a bit older. A short one, and be sure to watch the end (get it, the end? You will). This one I think DA will get the biggest kick out of.
