Rage Against the (Washing) Machine

Oh, it’s not the first time we’ve featured a singing daddy YouTube on TeenyManolo. But this is definitely the first time we’ve featured a singing daddy YouTube inspired by anti-establishmentarian rockers Rage Against The Machine. The song is by Jon Lajoie, it’s titled Stay At Home Dad and the beat is hardcore.

The lyrics, not so much.

Friday Caption Contest Results: Ferris Bueller All Grown Up Edition

Somewhat belatedly, we announce the winner of last Friday’s caption contest:

Matthew Broderick and Son

Bellamama Says:

“Aw, come on, Dad! You said I could drive!”

Congratulations and imaginary swag to Bellamama, who perfectly captured the juvenile exasperation on display here. What shall we give her for virtual swag for the hypothetical ceremony? How about this zippy little number, the Vespa Gran Turismo?

Friday Caption Contest: Ferris Bueller All Grown Up Edition

Shhhh, it’s me, Glinda.

And even though the lovely raincoaster asked me to take over the caption contest for today, I just feel sort of wrong. You know, like the wrong when you go looking through your friend’s medicine cabinet. Fascinated, but yet dreading what might happen. I doubt I’ll find anything incriminating. Right?

As odd as it feels, I must do my duty for all you caption contest fanatics.

So I present you with Matthew Broderick! On a scooter! With a helmet! And uh, accessories!

Come on, I know you’ve got it in you…

Pink Shirt Day!

Cast your minds back, dear readers, to a more innocent time. When things were quieter. When people were nicer. When the deer and the buffalo roamed.

Sorry, lost the thread.

Yes, cast your minds way, waaaaaay back, to this time last year. That was when we blogged about David Shepherd and Travis Price, two students in Nova Scotia who, outraged by seeing a fellow student bullied for wearing a pink shirt, took arms against a sea of bullies and, by opposing, ended them.

They started the Pink Shirt movement.

They used the Internet to encourage people to wear pink and bought 75 pink tank tops for male students to wear. They handed out the shirts in the lobby before class last Friday — even the bullied student had one.

“I made sure there was a shirt for him,” David said.

They also brought a pink basketball to school as well as pink material for headbands and arm bands. David and Travis figure about half the school’s 830 students wore pink…

“People say you’re famous, heroes or celebrities,” added Travis, who plans to take criminology next year. “We’re not, we’re just two kids who stood up for a cause.”

And now the government of Nova Scotia has declared the second Thursday of every school year to be Pink Shirt Stand Up Against Bullying Day. This year, that is today, but if you miss it there’s an International Stand Up Against Bullying Day on Friday, November 21st during anti-bullying week.

“The actions of these two young men, along with their fellow students who wore pink to school in support of another student, are showing all Nova Scotians just how much of a difference individuals can make,” Premier Rodney MacDonald said. “It is an honour to acknowledge their creative and selfless efforts by proclaiming a day at the outset of each school year to relay such a positive message against bullying.”

Join the Facebook group and upload photos of you and your kids flaunting your pink, or just go ahead and stand up to bullying right here in Real Life by wearing your pink with pride!icon. Blog it, forward it, wear it, flaunt it!

Now that’s Superfantastic!


The Testosterone Tide

It’s Boy Day on the ol’ TeenyManolo blog, my friends, and we poor femmes can do nothing but go along with it, lest we be swept under and carried quite away on the tide of testosterone. And so, to properly set the tone for the ragingly macho celebrations which today rock this great continent from the driest deserts of the South-West to the farthest frozen reaches of the Arctic, we present the following, frighteningly macho video from perhaps the most famous boy-man group in history. Hang on to your ovaries; this is not for the faint of heart! NSFEstrogen!

Mondays child is fair of face,
Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
Thursdays child has far to go,
Fridays child is loving and giving,
Saturdays child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

How Sweet!

Have you and your kids got your $250 tickets to celebrate Miley Cyrus’s Sweet Sixteen at Disneyland on October 5th (Miley Cyrus born Destiny Hope Cyrus on November 23rd)? Disney’s taking no chances on party guests being thin on the ground; they’ve piggybacked events in a way which would make even Porky blush:

Miley Cyrus is celebrating her Sweet Sixteen at Gay Days at Disneyland.

Gay Day Yay!

The 11th annual Gay Days event, which attracted 30,000 gays and lesbians to the park last year, actually takes place October 3-5. Gay Days describes itself as a “mix-in with straight parkgoers,” where the LGBT crowd wears red shirts.

Dress accordingly.
