Its A WaterBuffalo, Of Course!

I was sorting laundry while Cassie was in the tub. She was happy as a pig in mud, singing along to herself. Wonderful silly nonsensical songs. I followed along, humming to myself, vaguely amused that I did indeed know the words to much of the singing.

"Oh-OH, everybody's got a waterbuffalo. Mine is fast and yours is slow, OH-oh, everybody's got a waterfuffalo. Oh-OH, everybody's got a baby kangeroo, mine is pink and yours is blue, etc."

Its a ... lovely ... song from VeggieTales. Then ... I heard a most disturbing sound. Not the scary "fell and cracked her head wide open" sound. More of a dieing groaning warthog sound. It gave me pause. Then silence. And then it repeated.

I stuck my head into the bathroom and asked Cassie "Ummm, that was a good sound, what was it exactly?" She looked at me like I was very ... challenged ... and said "It was a waterbuffalo, of course!"

Of course. What else would it be!?!


LOL! Can't believe you even had to ask! Around here, that song usually turns into "Everyone's got a water bottle-o, yours is hot but mine is cold..."

Very funny to both Lucy and Leni. I love Veggie Tales. My first experience with them was when I was a freshman in college, and there were only 3 videos out at the time. Wow, how Big Idea has grown.

Oh course, mom.

I like "I Can Be Your Friend" Make me all warm and fuzzy

Do you remember "God is Bigger Than the Boogie Man"?

That one got changed to "God is Bigger Than the Daddy Man" and daddy would hop all over the place in circles the way Archibald Asparagus did. It was great fun!

I miss Veggie Tales! My kids are older now and don't beg for them any more. We're still going to get them all, for the grandkids, you know!

When we were on vacation I was driving along in the van with my agnostic-sister-in-law who doesn't watch VeggieTales. She REALLY looked at me odd when I knew all the words to the theme song -- If you like to talk to tomatoes, If a squash can make you smiiiiile -- !
