April Fools 2014: Cinema Parrot Disco

Cinema Parrot Disco

C’mon–you just KNOW you can’t have too many lovable idiots to laugh about. Which is why April Fools continues today with a post from blogging superstar Table 9 Mutant of Cinema Parrot Disco! Yes, I did just declare her a “blogging superstar,” and I think anyone who has been paying attention to her John Hughes Blogathon would say the same. Definitely check out her blog, her blogathon, and her list of fools below!


My Five April Fools


5. Salacious B. Crumb

salcious b crumb

Love him or hate him, you certainly can’t miss Jabba The Hutt’s tiny court jester as he sits on Jabba & laughs maniacally at people’s misfortune. Okay – he’s actually a little bastard but I love the dude. And his name is awesome. And he’s just soooo Henson. 🙂

Favorite quote: “Aahhhhhhhhhhhhhh oooohooohooohoooohooohhooohhhhoooohhh!!!!”


4. Jeremy Hillary Boob Ph.D.

He’s an “eminent physicist, polyglot classicist, prize-winning botanist, hard-biting satirist, talented pianist, good dentist too”. He’s a real nowhere man and probably a genius but definitely a bit nutty so I think I can include him as an “April Fool”. Or… “April Boob”. And just LOOK at him – what IS he? God drugs were good in 60s…. (I assume – I wasn’t born yet).

Favorite quote: “Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!”


3. Cousin Eddie

We all have a relative like this, right? Right?? Well, maybe in America. You can’t help but love a fool like Eddie, who never realizes how much he’s annoying his poor relatives. He’s gloriously dumb but does try to do the right thing even though he clearly doesn’t think everything through first.

Favorite quote (obviously): “Shitter was full!”


2. Bill S. Preston, Esq. & Ted Theodore Logan

bill and ted

You can’t choose just one of these guys – they’re a pair and it’s hard to decide which one is the bigger fool. But it’s impossible to not like the two guys who think Joan of Arc is Noah’s wife and that the number 69 is hilarious. Plus they save the future of this world with their music (they do get better).

Favorite quote: “Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K” closely followed by “69, dudes!”


1. Garth Algar

garth 2

Oh Garth – you’ll always be my biggest loveable idiot! Garth Algar – the guy who drives the Mirth-Mobile, does the “foxy lady” dance, pretends his doughnuts are murdering each other, can play the drums like a motherfucker, and has just gotten some pubes. So sweet & naive, Garth is someone I’d love to have as my sidekick sitting on the couch next to me in my basement. If I had a basement…

Favorite quote: “Ribbed for her pleasure. Ewww.”


Another lovely list! Garth seems to be a popular fellow, no? Thanks so much, Miss Mutant! More lists will be coming your way soon, buuuuut if all goes as planned I ought to have a review of a new movie for you tomorrow and then something else special on Monday…Stay tuned! 🙂

  1. Thanks, Cara! Garth should be on everyone’s list. ; ) I AM a bit of a Garth, as my hubby says. Maybe that’s why I like Garth so much! I’m sure Eric will love my Beatles-related number four. I can’t wait to see all the other lists. And your review of something new. : )

  2. Hahah your description of Garth is brilliant, made me chuckle a little. No, a lot. This is a good list, some very original choices. And I have no idea what the fuck Jeremy Hillary Boob is supposed to be. 😀

    • Yes! Garth is awesome. Wish he was real so I could hang out with him. Lol – that sounded really dorky… He & I would get along so well! And, yes – had to get The Beatles in there. I didn’t yet know when I wrote this that Eric hated them too so that’s an extra bonus! ; )

    • Thanks, Zoe! And… Yay! You also like the proper original Star Wars trilogy too???? ; ) I actually thought of Salacious B Crumb right away – I’ve always found that little fucker annoyingly hilarious. Lol : )

      • I LOVE STAR WARS!! I love the original trilogy, and as much crap as I get about it I enjoy the prequel, too! My gosh, when I saw him on your list I absolutely cracked up! Every time he is on the screen he owns it. Cheeky bastard!

  4. Mutant, your number 1 is inspired. I love Garth!

    I like the other names on your list, too, including Jobba, which I like as much as I do precisely because I never would have thought of him. 🙂
