#GBE2: Naughty Can Be Nice

When Santa checks his list, twice, he's looking for folks who have been naughty OR nice, but can't one be both? I'm not saying being naughty is good, just that being bad gives beings super strength, agility, and strong thresholds for pain. Nice! At least that's what I see on TV. For example, take a look at the Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv.


Although these two bad boys are about as naughty as one can get, they've achieved superhuman status that keeps them going even in the direst of circumstances. Nice! After all, who else could withstand a hot iron in the face, being burnt, blown up, tripping on marbles, being struck by paint cans, bricks, and anything else Kevin thrusts their way?

But wait, these two naughties are not the first bad guys who were given superhuman abilities.


Remember Wile E. Coyote? Poor little Road Runner just wants to cruise the highways endlessly, with no place to go, but this sicko won't leave him alone. Naughty! But, being naughty has its advantages. He's fallen off cliffs, been whacked on the head with anvils, and as you see to the left, blown up by TNT. Yet like the Wet Bandits, Wile survives. Nice!


Or how about Moe? Constantly smacking one's brothers doesn't get one on the Nice List, yet these crazy brothers survived it all. Of course Santa still doesn't come to Larry, Moe, and Curly's home because he's an antisemite, but that's another post. Naughty!



So the moral of this story . . .  If you want to be protected from harm, you must be naughty


Now that's nice!

My youngest saw Home Alone for the first time ever this year and he laughed and laughed. Who knew? :)

Roadrunner was my mom's fave (him and Hong Kong Phooey).

HaHa - very true lots of naughty people are actually very nice!!!

Such an interesting perspective here, Joyce! I'd never have thought to contrast/compare the two in such a creative way.
Blessings!

This is good to know! So naughty it is for me from here on! Bring on the swinging paint cans and anvils!

Hair Ball and Edwin Elf have been very naughty over at my blog today.

Wish I could have super human powers. I could use some right now.

Hugs and chocolate!

Home Alone has been on AMC every night this week! And of course I watch it every night - LOL.

Now that I have your permission....game on.

Interesting point, although I will argue that santa probably didn't leave much more than a lump of coal for the wet bandits, but they wouldn't need more as they stole everything else they may have wanted. Nice. So I guess that makes you right once again.

Leigh Young said...

Correct as usual! Naughty it is from here on out! lol!

I'm here to give you a big thanks. I read your advice not to give teachers ornaments for the Christmas holiday (which I did last year, hahaha) and got them all Bath and Body Works lotion and shower gel instead this year. We never got so many thank you cards, and in-person thank you's. Those were happy teachers!! :)

My 2014 resolution now is to be more naughty!! Have a Merry Christmas!! :)

I'm wondering if you're confusing me with someone else, because I don't remember saying that or even thinking it. Many teachers love getting ornaments and have found memories of the kids each year when they put them on the tree. Depending on the teacher, an ornament might be the perfect gift. Many teachers love to get gift cards to their favorite restaurant or store. Another favorite gift I got was parents bringing me lunch up at school. This works well when you have a child with multiple teachers. For example, it's great to get a food platter for the "eighth grade" teachers. Bath and Body Works is always good, too.

Sometimes you have to be naughty and nice.

Word Nerd said...

Sometimes it's VERY nice to be naughty.

Theresa said...

I like a nice mix of the 2. Being naughty all the time is not good, but being nice all the time makes me want to puke. Combine the two and you have a great balance!

mail4rosey said...

For the love of gravy...someone posted that teachers get way too many ornaments, so best to steer clear. I thought it was you, but of course searching through the posts, I don't see it. I'm baffled now, as to who it was. Lunch at the school does sound like a nice treat!

Naughty is nice when it's not!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Know why Santa's so jolly? Because he knows where all the naughty girls live... and he thinks that's pretty nice.

Merry Christmas!

I knew there was a reason I tip toed off the straight and narrow every now and then! I really just want to be "Super!" LOL
Wild E is still my fave of all of them.
