Jack Black made my day!

And not because I saw him at Turtle Bay, because I saw him on Yo Gabba Gabba.

Anyone who's anyone who knows anyone who knows ME knows I loves me some Jack Black in stretchy pants.

But today he crossed the line.

He wore stretchy pants on Yo Gabba Gabba--and not just any ole' stretchy pants--orange stretchy pants of the polyester jumpsuit origin.

Oh Jack! I won't pretend it didn't make my day, but anyone who's anyone who knows anyone who knows me knows that with all of my heart and soul I don't love Yo Gabba Gabba.

I actually had a fist fight with Melanie J. @ Write Stuff over it. She does love Yo Gabba Gabba which left me no choice but to schedule an intervention and then a CAT scan and finally a l0botomy ASAP.

After I had her straight jacketed, she told me that half the YGG peeps are in her ward and stake so she's obligated to love them.

I was like, "What the what? The YGG peeps are MORMONS? Holy random-way-to-spread-the-good-news-gospel!"

Let's just hope the YGG peeps were able to convert Jack Black, elsewise I don't know if I can forgive him his orange jumpsuit appearance.

Luckily I took over 100 blackmail photos.  (You never know when they might come in handy.)

Seriously though, don't you think Jack Black would make a TAMN good Mormon?


Kristina P. said...

Wow. I'm slightly frightened.

One of my blog friends posted about how her kids love YGG, and how she was sick and tired of it, and she got some nasty anonymous comment saying that she wasn't supporting Mormons and why would she want to cut them down. We didn't even know it was created by Mormons.

I CANNOT believe the Yo Gabba Gabba peeps are Mormons!! The things I learn here are amazing!

Jack Black would be an awesome addition to Fast and Testimony meeting.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Ah oh!

Oh, well. I'll take on the nasty anonymous commenters. I will shout it from the roof tops: "I think Yo Gabba Gabba is random as helk!!!!! But it doesn't rock my testimony!! Mormons still ROCK!"

Bring it on Anon! I'm not virtually afeared of you!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

hahahahahahahaha OMGOSH, Sue, you made me spit my V-8 across the screen. The thought of Jack Black at testimony meeting really excited me.

Is that disturbing?

♥georgie♥ said...

OMGosh LOL...I do Love jack black but I admit I have never heard yo gabba gabba is that like some new rap group?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Ha ha Georgie. Rap Group!

I know, YO GABBA GABBA. I don't get it either. Yo Yo Gabba might make a nice rap group though.

I LOVE YGG in the weirdest way. It is sooo weird and different and I think that is why I love it so much. :) keeps my little one glued to the TV while I blog :)

The Wixom Zoo said...

Yo Gabba 4 year old won't even watch it. I'll have to admit, though, I was seriously tempted when I saw the commercials with Nacho Libre in some orange stretchy pants...

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

I had to shield my children's eyes! And now I may be scared for life!

Too creepy to contemplate (alas I am not a JB fan nor YGG). Can we still be friends?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

OHMYGADNESS thank goodness for digital cameras and black mail intent. I can't believe you didn't know that they were MORMON...everybody who's anybody KNOW that Gabba Gabba is MORMON!!!

I like Jack Black...but you are right about the Orange Stretch's not sittin right in my belly! :)

Kritta22 said...

How much money do you think he got to go on that show?

Kritta22 said...

Did you ever see School of Rock?

Kritta22 said...

Jack Black was in that too. With the guy that is on Amazing Race 14 right now. The guy on AR14 actually wrote and directed it.

He's not Mormon.

Kritta22 said...



Gulping!! (Cough cough cougggghhhh!!)

Jack Black at Fast Sunday!!!!

I love it! Oh can you just imagine? He couldn't be put in the Bishopric cuz all the old people would die from heart attacks laughing so hard!

Kritta22 said...

Oh such a happy thought, Jack Black Mormon!

What are all those stinking missionaries doing around the world??

Don't they know who they really need to convert??!

Kritta22 said...

For all of you who didn't catch the humor in that last comment, I was just kidding.

I'm a co-V to the Church. I understand the work, yo!

I am LoW said...

If he were Sunday School teacher I'd stop skipping Sunday school.

I am LoW said...

(I don't know YGG so I certainly didn't know they were Mormon. But being Mormon doesn't give a free pass IMO. NAKED DUDE ON SURVIVOR!!!)

Melanie J said...

Yeah, LoW? What's up with Survivor Naked Dude being the evillest one? I bet he said he's Mormon so he would get cast because we're such hot commodities on reality TV these days, but I bet he doesn't consider himself a real Mormon anymore. It's just a foot in the door, and Survivor does love their token Mormons.

And I'm kinda mad at the YGG bunch right now because I've had to sub seminary for their creative director for a month. And yesterday was my last day and I'm on vacation with my hubby for his 40th b-day and I STILL WOKE UP BEFORE THE CRACK OF DAWN. I'm totally joining Miss Heidi's FB group.

Homer and Queen said...

Never heard of YGG! I guess I am out of the loop...I would totally vote for Jack (I do love my Jacks) for the bishopric. Let me know when he runs for the job...He could do our testimony meetings anytime!

Mariko said...

I've never seen YGG. In fact, I did not know it existed.
If it had JB, it can't be all bad.
Except that it's one of those kid shows where they repeat everything like 100 times, isn't it, ISN'T IT?!
Hate those shows.
Actually JB would make a good mormon, but he would definitely NOT make a good mormon, if you know what I mean.
As much as you love JB, never watch the extras on his Tenacious D music video DVD. I'm warning you.

SO said...

I had no idea that YGG was made by Mo-Mo's! that explains so much. My daughter used to like them but not now. I did want to see the Jack Black episode but my husband was home and I didn't want to admit it to him so I missed it. Thanks for the pics.

Youngblood4ever said...

Um, YES! That was frightening and I think I threw up a little but in my mouth. But, come on, Jack Black in ORANGE stretchy pants? Does life getting any better? Is there any better blackmail material in this world? I think not.

Youngblood4ever said...

And, by the way- WHY were you watching YGG?

I am LoW said...

Token Mormon??? hahaha!! LOVE it!! And SO true!! If you want to get on any reality show, pull the Mormon card. Mercy!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

My verifier say iregu. That's short for irregUlar, just as Fabu is short for FabUlous.

It's fabu to be iregu!!


I'm so happy to hear that Melanie J is disgruntled with the YGG peeps. Can't hardly believe the creative director is a seminary teacher. Do his lessons draw any parallels to teeth with elvis hair who play the guitar or strange bumpy one-eyed orange thingiemabops.

What are those thingiemabops anyway? I can't make heads or tails of it.

And Emily, I don't think we can be cousins anymore. ;)

And now that you mention it about the token Mormon on every reality gig . . . that is so true.

I haven't seen the naked Mormon on Survivor though. Is that fo' reals?

Kritta22 said...

I really do talk to myself in here, huh??


The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha Kritta. You make me laugh.

I love that you say awesomeness because you're talking to yourself.

I also get a kick out of you talking to yourself.

ftr, I totally LOVED School of Rock! I saw it twice in the theater. Two days in a row and bought the DVD as soon as it came out.

And it is such a happy thought to think of Jack Black in the bishopric. ha ha ha. I would never miss church again. ;)

Although Mariko makes a good point too.

Heidi Ashworth said...

And here I have never heard of Yo gabba gabba or whatev. I DO like Jack in orange, though! Course, he could wear just about anything and I would like it (as long as he keeps things covered, I'm good.)
