Mary Worth 3171

Hold on, there, Hugo. That's my gig. I've spent over a decade putting words into the mouths of those fishes. I'm thinking he's gonna say, "I may be a stupid fish, but at least I'm not a stupid human. Ha Ha."

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Rejected Script Of A Good Friday Skit From Monty Python's Flying Circus".

Fish talk, what?
'Better view...two-leggers'!
Ha ha!
'Fish! Vegan!'

What does the fish say? "...And along comes Mary..."

KitKat said...

Fish: “The conversation of these two bozos is so lame, they must be the grandchildren of that old couple who’s always here - the white-haired cliche generator and the sleepy guy with her.”

Hugo, maybe your attempt at humor would be funnier if you said it in French. How do you say “tee hee”?

The fish would say ".....you two are so boring. If I wasn't dead, I'd ask to be killed."

I just wish instead of the stuffed bass, they had sat below one of Uncle Joe's moving fish paintings. Hugo would say the moving paintings in the Louvre are better.

I'll bet there's better fish in France. Heck, there's better fish at McDonald's.

Fish: "I shoulda taken that job at Beetle Bailey."

I think everyone’s a winner today - LOL.

Fish: "I'll get you for this, Mark Trail!"

"Here I am, in death, splayed across a shabbily veneered placard, forever doomed to bear witness, staring down but unable to see, while simpering morons grubbily pick at the filleted remains of my brothers' and sisters' descendants, cursorily deep-fried and then slathered in off-brand ketchup.

Hello my baby,
Hello my honey,
Hello my ragtime gal.
Send me a kiss by wire,
Baby, my heart's on fire.
If you deceive me, honey you'll lose me.
Oh honey, telephone and tell me I'm you're ooooowwnnn!"

How about that fish flapping back and forth while singing a happy, little song by Bobby McFerrin?

Saturday
I don’t see Dawn surreptitiously Googling to see what Hugo called her. (I consulted the inter web; “pet.” As in “arf”?)

@TimP-- hilarious!

Come on, Moy, that's not what His Hugeness would say when asked about his "sole filet." He'd say, "I've had better."

Jukebox suggestion: "Rescue Me" by Fontana Bass.

Oh, I misread. I thought he called her ‘choucroute’, which means sauerkraut.

Here's what the fish would say (sing)

If storyline ends with Dawn having to move her split ends and dumpy outfits to France, in shame, then I’m all for it.

Carlye said...

Hugo can borrow this from Pepe le Pew: "You are the corned beef, I am the cabbage. The corned beef is nothing without the cabbage."

Of course, both the corned beef and cabbage are better in France.

KitKat said...

I don’t recall Dawn swimming away from the sinking Unita del Mare.

“Hugo, you haven’t seen nothing yet!”? Leave it to KM to mangle “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

So what will be the fly in the Simpletons’ romance, other than them knowing nothing about each other and being equally vacuous? Will KM pivot to another romance scam so soon after L’Affaire Estelle? That would be too much even for KM, which probably means “yes, of course.”

KitKat:

Well, I soitenly hope so. Nyuk nyuk. Wouldn’t want to see Love’s Young Dream fulfilled so suddenly.

Thanks, Scotty McW!
