MaryBeth sent me a great link from Mental Floss… it was about how 30 years ago today, they stopped making vw bugs and 10 quick tidbits about vw bugs.
Number 9 was my favorite:
9. Beetle engines are often hacked into other things, including ski lifts, small airplanes, air compressors, water pump-powerers and motorcycles.
But there was a game mentioned that I remember as a kid… that was number 4:
4. Lots of kids play Slug Bug here in the Midwest. If you see a Bug somewhere, you immediately punched whoever is closest to you and say, “Slug Bug, no slugs back.” Apparently the game is called Punch Buggy everywhere else in the world.
Go enjoy learning more about my namesake. Gotta love those bugs!
If you are a young boy… when Dave lifts the bowl and one of the chipmunks farts in his face. They both tried to tell me about that part at the same time. Ugh! Then the rest of it was about the different things that happened. Theodore getting caught on the remote control car while Alvin and Simon fought over the controls… anyway, if you seen the movie you’ll know which parts they liked. It was nice of Cobb Theaters to have some free movies this summer for the kids. CLICK Here to see is one of the theaters and the shows that they had available over the summer. We only made it to the last week. But it was great. Now, to get the kids well and find something else free to do the next couple of weeks.
