Intervention for Omar

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before, in the past, a couple of times, that I LOVE "Napoleon Dynamite." I do. I searched "Napoleon" on my blog and the posts that I at least mention Napoleon were very plentiful. Napoleon or someone in the movie has the answers to every question in life (Much like "The Godfather" does, but in a more lighthearted way. Is that blasphemous to say??) Seriously. Let me demonstrate:

What's for dinner?
"Make yourself a dang ques-uh-dilluh."

What kind of gun do you have?
"A freakin' 12 gauge. Whattaya think?"

What are you wearing to the dance?
"Just a silk shirt or something."

How many nipples does a cow have?
"A good dairy cow should have, like, four."

What's a liger?
"It's a lion and tiger mixed, bred for it's skills and magic."

Do you know my mom?
"Your mom goes to college."

What should I give her for her birthday?
"I don't know. Build her a cake or something."

How much did you make mowing that yard?
"That's like... a dollar an hour!"

Who are you voting for?
"I'm voting for Pedro Sanchez. Who da ya think??"

What should I do?
"Just follow your heart."

What do girls want?
"Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills."

Napoleon not only has the answers for day to day life. He can help you if you need comeback lines to someone who's messin' with you:
"Why don't you eat a decroded piece of crap!"

"How 'bout you get outta my life and shut up!"


"It's a free country. I can do whatever I want!"

"You guys are retarded!"

We try to use ND quotes on a daily basis in our home. It's that important.

What makes me sad about this post is that poor Omar has no clue what I'm talking about. That's right. Omar has NEVER watched "Napoleon Dynamite." I don't know *why* or *how*, I just know it needs to change.
That is why I am encouraging all to:
Come on:

You know it's time Omar. You know you want to. Now go on, rent the dvd, watch it and then report on your blog. You will feel better. Not to mention you will get a ton more jokes amongst the blogosphere. You will be able to tell me if the chickens have large talons. Or *did* Kip bring Napoleon his chapstick?? Go on. You can do it.

Oh my goodness. This is like an intervention!

First, to answer your question, yes it is blasphemous. Blasphemer!

Next, I'll give you the standard answer: What happens if I don't like it? It could hurt our blog friendship. Don't you value our blog friendship?

Too fun ; )

Millie said...

I'm worried he won't get most of the jokes, since it's a movie kind of geared toward us Mo's.

I watched it with my very inactive family and they thought most of it was funny - like Uncle Rico throwing the steak at Napoleon because that's slapstick and we're all that way - but a lot of stuff went right over their heads.

Although, maybe if Omar watches it with the commentary, it'll be better.

Omar, watch it once, then watch it with the commentary. Then still be friends with Tori or we'll all be sad.

The first time I saw Napoleon Dynamite I laughed some, but mostly just said, "WHAT THE...?"

The next time I loved it...and laughed a lot more!

The next time I was rolling on the floor laughing!

It just gets better EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!

Watchitwatchitwatchitwatchit! :D

*Standing Ovations*

That post almost brought tears to my eyes...beautiful. know how I feel about this matter.

NOBODY said...

Omar, you learn amazing things watching Napoleon Dynamite.

For example, did you know...
Last week, Japanese scientists explaced... placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Cort Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally.

They walk among us. It's amazing how many people I've come across that haven't seen it. I'm sad for those people. :)

Nancy Face said...

Omar: Have you caved yet? ;)

glittersmama said...

Hey Tori! I came over here to get ideas for my comments over at omar.

Now I need to go watch Napoleon.

No Cool Story said...

Yeah Omar, stay home and eat all the freakin' chips.
And watch ND.

My Twin is right, All the answers of life are contained therein.

aubrey said...

omar, listen to us all. tori is right. ND gives all the answers to life! he's freakin awesome. {said like ND}

annie said...

I agree with NF, it just gets more and more funny!

Klin said...

Omar, watch the dang movie. You'll love that your kids can watch it and don't learn anything that requires a dictionary to explain or therapy.

OH, and "Your mom goes to college."

utmommy said...

How could someone have never seen Napolean? It's a crime right?

Whitney said...

I fetching love it. I saw it numerous times in the theater. Everytime I need chapstick I think of Napoleon :)

Mindi said...

you KNOW that i share the love of dynamite--it's like gospel.

and i voted YES for omar to watch--i don't think he listens to me, though.
