  1. Steph Says:


    I love them all!!

    And hey, you have to come up with more questions for me. I think they’re fun. 🙂

  2. Writer Dad Says:

    Two Ubus in one week? And it’s not Christmas? Who cares about the recession!

    Even so, Barbie Blogger has to be my favorite.

  3. Brett Legree Says:

    I am: Ahab.
    I think: Moby Dick is a stupid name for a whale – I mean, come on.
    I know: I have a peg leg – what about it?
    I have: a harpoon – do not frak with me.
    I hate: duh. The white whale, Moby Dick. You’re new around here, aren’t you?
    I love: Ishmael. (Hey, it gets lonely out here.)
    I miss: my leg. My stump really itches, especially when the salt water gets in there.
    I fear: Queequeg won’t harpoon for me anymore.
    I hear: that Gregory Peck played me in a movie – good choice, he’s almost as handsome as me.

  4. Amy Derby Says:

    Ah, Ubu’s back. 😀

  5. Steph Says:


    Oh my God, the two of you together are just hilarious. I can’t wait till you write books together.

  6. Brett Legree Says:

    Thanks Steph – winter’s coming, and we have to do something while we’re drinking beer 🙂

  7. Friar Says:


    Are you SURE you want more questions? (Haven’t you had enough of Friar’s stupidity for one week?) 🙂

    @Writer Dad and Amy

    You two are responsible for the 2nd Ubu reference . (I was inspired by your enthusiastic response from the first one earlier this week). 🙂


    I am: Moby Dick.
    I think: Ahab’s a pussy name. Oooh…look at meee. I’m AYYY-HAB.
    I know: Who ate Ahab’s original leg! (Nyah Nyah Nyah, I’m not gonna tell).
    I have: A Whale-Jiggly. (You DON’T wanna know how big it is!)
    I hate: Ahab. (What an asshole!)
    I love: Krill. Scrumptions, chewy KRILL.
    I miss: Opposable thumbs. If we whales had those, it would be US with the boats, harpooning the humans.
    I fear: Pooping and eating in the same water I’m swimming in.
    I hear: Ahab’s boat coming. Well…BRING IT ONNNN.,..!!

  8. Marelisa Says:

    Hi Friar: My favorite was the one with the breakfast cereals. I ate all of those growing up. Now you’re making me crave Lucky Charms.

  9. Friar Says:


    I loved those cereals, but my Mom was pretty strict. We almost NEVER had them, except as special treats. Maybe summer camping trips.

    Or we’d each get a box of “Junk Cereal”, wrapped up as a Christmas Gift, under the tree!

    I’m glad I’m old enough to by Lucky Charms now, whenever I want. 🙂

  10. Brett Legree Says:

    Luckily Friar translated for us – for those who speak white whale, here it is:

    I am: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh… eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I think: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I know: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I have: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I hate: (stares at Ahab with one beady eye)
    I love: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I miss: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I fear: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…
    I hear: eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…eeeruuuuooooohhhhh…

  11. Friar Says:



    What about Flipper?

    I am: Klack klick klickety-klack
    I think: Klick Klick
    I know: Klick Klick Klickety-klick
    I have: Klack klack klack KLICK!
    I hate: Klick
    I love: (Does a double back-flip)
    I miss: Klickity (does a thrusting motion with hips)
    I fear: KLACK! KLACK! KLACK! (Expressed alarmingly).
    I hear: Klack Klick Klack.

    Hey Friar: I know you’re friends with Rita. What’s happened to her blog? Do you know anything? Thanks. I’m going through Rita withdrawal.

  13. I love these.
    Count Chocula is my favorite of them, but I am a Cocoa Puffs supporter.

  14. Friar Says:


    Sorry, I don’t really know much more than you do. All I know is that her blog has changed today, it’s now missing the posts between June and October!


    I’m a Cap’n Crunch man myself! (And Lucky Charms, as well).

  15. Karen Swim Says:

    ROFL! Hey, I think I know the Acting Director dude! LOL! These were hysterical Friar. Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, you gotta admit it was a good slogan! LOL!

  16. Friar Says:


    WHICH actiing director dude? (There are hundreds of these fishing shows!)

    I remember the Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs commercials from the 70’s. What ever happened to Sonny? (If you remember, that’s his name!) 🙂

  17. feefifoto Says:

    Friar: thanks for answering my question. I know she’s not writing any more and her blog has been taken over by someone else, but I don’t know why. I hope she’s okay. If you learn anything would you let me know, or ask her to get in touch with me? She should have my email address. Thanks.
