I just went to visit my sister and we watched a lot of MST3K while I was there. As an offshoot of one of the episodes we watched we decided to use “Merry Christmas, Dummies!” as hello, goodbye, I love you, etc., etc. literally for everything we can think of as a greeting or a goodbye.
Can I remember the episode that was in? Nope. Do I know why we made that decision? Double nope. That’s just how our family rolls. I should mention that we are deeply, DEEPLY wierd people.
Tell me, what MST3K phrase have you adopted as a family in joke?
Technically a ritual. We take turns each year deciding who gets to draw the hourglass symbol.
That is exactly what I am talking about!! Merry Christmas, Dummies is going to be my family’s love language for the foreseeable future.
We used to have a little dog that liked sleeping under the blanket. When he was sleeping under the blanket on my side of the bed and I hadn’t come to bed yet, my wife used to tell me the dog was there by saying, “watch out for snakes.”
Our family thinks MST3K is Pretty nice!
My family would lean towards “It Stinks”. I also had a new family member see mst3k for the first time via Pod People and immediately decide they absolutely needed an “I’m a Virgin” t-shirt stat. We recruit good people into the fam apparently.
Every Halloween, my parents watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show
“Time for go to bed!” is an awesome way to kick off bedtime.
