Love her

Mom: So have you heard that really catchy song about McDonalds?
Me: Huh?
Mom: You know, dadadada-da-da-da-da, if you catch me at Mcdonalds I got visa's in my name....
Me: Mom. Thats not what she says.
Mom: What do you mean? She even talks about cheeseburgers after that.
Me: Are we even talking about the same song? Do they play a different version up there? [My mom lives in the pacific northwest]
Mom: No! She says, "If you come around here I make 'em all day, I'll get some done in a second if you wait". You see? She'll make you a cheeseburger!
Me: Mom, I think that song is about dealing drugs.
Mom: NO! No! Are you serious?
Me: How do you even hear "cheeseburgers"? What she really says is, "If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name". And when she says, "I'll get some done in a second if you wait" she's talking about packing some drugs for you. How did you not know this? Did you not hear the gunshots?
Mom: I guess my virgin ears just substitute words for things I dont want to hear! And furthermore, missy, how do you know all this druggy lingo? Hmm?
Me: Um, I watch intervention?
Mom: Thats all you'd better be doing.
Me: Of course. So you still like the song?
Mom: I dont care what you say, I still think it's about McDonalds.

Too funny! Your mom sounds like a hoot! I bet she's a blast when you get her drunk...

Heinous said...

Lol..that's too funny. Maybe McD's should change their image...

I can't get enough of intervention. We get the series from the library and watch them in little marathons.

Too funny.

HA! Moms rule. I love that song, but it is a little hard to understand the words. Still, I don't hear "cheeseburger" anywhere either.

Haha! I guess that means McDonald's special sauce is going to be REALLY special now! ;)

Lidian said...

That is so funny! I think Dave Barry wrote a whole book about people mishearing song lyrics and this definitely should be in it!

hammy said...

Well, I'm with your mom on this one. It's about McDonalds. Cheeseburgers.

Ok, I'll side by you too. Cheeseburgers laced with Speed. McD's new marketing strategy.
;)

Heinous said...

Vodka Mom said...

just a girl... said...

this is hilarious. i still crack up when my mom trys to sing baby got back.

What's funnier is that your mom might be right! "Cheeseburger" is sometimes a slang word for the wacky tobacky. As in, "I brought cheeseburgers..anyone got a light?" I am NOT making this stuff up people. So the question is...Who the heck is your mom hanging out with these days??? You might need to check her bag for cheeseburgers...I'm just sayin'. BTW Love your blogs, read them all the time:)
