Less Kitty, More Pepe

I've been noodling on my lack of Home Improvement improvements, and it got me thinking about Pepe Le Pew.  Perhaps you are asking what in the fuck I am talking about?

Remember Pepe LePew? He loved the kitty with the stripe of white paint down her back. Kitty? Not so much. However, Kitty and Pepe always end up in the same place. But the quality of their experiences getting there are *totally* different. Her trip is full of Shpilkes and his trip is full of mellow bouncing (bounce, bounce, bounce).

IN OTHER ENGLISH WORDS: At our final home improvement destination, no matter how we got there, we are where we are. So why not relax and enjoy the trip?  TO SUMMARIZE Less of this:
And more of this:

  2. Love this post! Man, I -always- laugh at these classic cartoons. I like how you linked us to the definition of shpilkes. Be honest, was it in your vernacular or did you use thesaurus.com today? :) I should do this for words like "inane" which is lesser known, people always think you've misspelled "insane".

    And finally...ever notice they rarely show Le Pew cartoons anymore? He's basically a rapist, it's incredibly politically incorrect in our "pristine" modern era...and that's what I love about it.

  7. Chill out and go with the flow, yeah, sounds like an excellent approach. We've recently decided to do this as well. It makes life easier.

  8. What I love the most about this is that the word "shpilkes" is actually something that was said in my home growing up (and we're not jewish). Though based on that definition I clearly never knew what it actually meant . . . or that it was an actual word.

  11. See now, but you liked my video of the guy revving up for his 1015 lb deadlift. Can we reconcile these approaches to life? A little Pepe, a little Benny the Big Man? I think it's possible...
