Yoda versus Shifu

So Belle and I were talking the other day about Kung Fu Panda. She really liked the movie and all the characters. Somehow we got on the topic of Star Wars and Yoda. I mentioned that Yoda could probably win in a fight against Kung Fu Panda's Master Shifu.

Belle thought about it for a minute and then asked me, "How do you know that Yoda would win?"

"Well," says I. "I figure Yoda's got the force."

"Ah..." quickly chirped Belle. "But Master Shifu has the Wuxi Finger hold!"

I just didn't have a answer for that one.

I still think Yoda would win, but it's nice to have these kinds of conversations with my kid. :)

Truck Nutz

On the way home from work tonight, I saw the most awful and tacky vehicle accessory. I guess these things have been around, but it was the first time I had ever taken notice.

Anyhow, there was this big ass truck on the road and hanging from the bumper were a pair metal testicles.

Yes, you read that right, the truck had balls.

Man balls. A happy sack. Ghoulies. Huevos. Nads. Testicles!

I had to do a double take because I thought it was a defective trailer hitch or something. I don't spend much time looking at cars, let alone all the bling that people put all over them, it is just not my thing.

Now, I find large trucks to be rather ugly to begin with. I truly loathe things like the "Calvin peeing on the Ford logo" sticker, the steel-chains license plate frame, or the ever popular "Mudflap girl" silhouette. A constant reminder that there is many in this world with different taste than I. Bully for them, I guess.

Sadly, I felt the need to write about it here. Even more sad, I did a quick google search to find out the correct terminology of said truck balls. Apparently they are called "Truck Nutz", also known as bull balls, bumper nuts, hanging truck balls, hitch nuts, etc.

Googling anything is always a risk and I was very scared of what I would get for searching under the words truck and balls. Luckily, I was very late to the Truck Nutz party and there were a ton of sites dedicated to the selling of these bulbous accoutrements.

It was amazing to see the large variety of colors, sizes, and materials available for you to personalize your own set of truck nutz. It reminded me of all the various gamer dice one has to choose from when selecting a new set of dice for a game of Dungeons & Dragons.

At least neuticles have a purpose. These were for dudes who were already compensating for a lack of something with their huge trucks...this was a way to really drive in that point. That is not to say that some people just find them funny and proudly display their balls to offend people. I can see some value in that, I guess. But the joke is already old on me and I only just saw them.

Thank you, world! You have brought me up to speed on a new level of tackiness. I wonder what will be the next big reveal that the universe will share with me?

Tonight's first pint? Boddingtons. Ahhhhh.

Good, but I'm moving on to Harp (I only bought one Boddy)

Just glad that it's the weekend.

Will be seeing Kung Fu Panda with Belle tomorrow. For the first of a few times I am sure. At least WALL-E is coming out this month too. Having to see the same kid movies again and again can melt your brain.

Taking the day off for Batman in July. Hell yes.

Belle's been in a Star Wars mood lately. Today she asked to borrow one of my white T-shirts for play...

Somebody opened up a comic book store near my home.

Outside of getting married and becoming a father, this is one of the best days in my life.

I saw an online debate regarding the important question, "Can a lightsaber cut through Superman?"

I chuckled and turned to my wife and posed her with the question. We both agreed that since Superman emits a sort of bio-electric aura that shields him from most physical attacks, the lightsaber would NOT cut through the man of steel (hey, lasers don't work on him either).

My four year old daughter quickly added, "You shouldn't mix Warner Brothers with Star Wars characters...it just doesn't work, Daddy."

I'm impressed that she not only had a strong opinion to add but that she already knows that WB owns DC Comics and understands that fictional universes differ from brand to brand.

That all said, I'd like to think a lightsaber would sting Superman at least a little bit on contact.
