All Business Up Front, Party in the Back!

Just to clarify, this picture is of my brother-in-law, so there's no shared DNA. I've got seven bro-in-laws, so I won't say which one. Hint: His initials are "DS" just like mine!

In this amazing picture of himself, he added the gorgeous locks in back through the magic of yearbookyourself.com and titled the pic, "All Business Up Front, Party in the Back!" then had the nerve, I mean brilliant insight, to post it on his FaceBook page. Like I said, no shared DNA...

I cracked up big time when I saw it, and it got me thinking. What is it we show the world "up front" and what do we hide in "the back." Now, don't go getting all obscene on me. I mean this as a deep, philosophical question - a sort of existential glimpse into the psyche of the human mind. (OMG - did you read that last sentence? Hilarious!)

Here are a few of my "up fronts" vs "in the backs". Don't worry, only one of them is "real." Okay, maybe two.

1) I know, I totally agree. Ann Coulter's a goddess! vs. What? You like Ann Coulter? Are you insane? She's the anitchrist, you nasty, bigoted, right-wing Republican SOB!

2) That's fascinating! vs. If you don't stop opening your mouth and having sound come out NOW, one of us is going to die.

3) What? Dream Agent SoAndSo asked you for a full? Awesome! vs. If you get an agent before I do, I'll sic my cat on your dog and swallow all the Lunesta in my bottle in one, big gulp.

4) Thanks, for tucking my tag in in the back. Damn tags! vs. If you touch me again, I'm calling the cops.

5) OMG - Your hair looks amazing! vs. Holy Mary, Mother of God, have you LOOKED in the mirror?

6) Oh, I'm so, so sorry! vs. You didn't win the lottery like you thought? Bwahaha!

7) Sure, I'd love to come for dinner next weekend! vs. Please, God, send me the flu on Saturday.

8) I'd love to follow you on FaceBook! vs. Dying to see goofy pictures of you so I can make fun of them on my blog.

9) Have a great weekend, y'all! vs. Have a REALLY great weekend, y'all!

Also, I'm part of Blog Hop '09. Check it out and join the party! (And, don't forget your poodle skirt and saddle shoes!)

Between this and the video Angie posted at gumbowriter my colleauges must think I have gone crazy.

Lola Lakely said...

How funny is it that our subject matter coincides to beautifully with each other. Hizzah!

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Is it wrong that I almost put Ann Coulter in my "followers" graphic today along with all the other evil?

Does this make me a left-wing commie bastard? I prefer to think of myself as "a politically challenged Fox News hater" but I'm an equal opportunities hater really.

Also, I so need to yearbook myself.

DebraLSchubert said...

VA, She'd be at the top of my "Evil" list alongside Rush Limbaugh. If they made babies together, that new life form would destroy the galaxy as we know it.;-)

Mel @ A Box of Chocolates said...

Oh, that is a cute story about your son vs. Christ almighty! Enough about your stupid son already!

Stephanie Faris said...

Everyone always touts honesty but this is just proof that if we really told the truth, we'd have very few friends!

I've seen several people "yearbook" themselves on facebook and it's hilarious! I just might have to give myself a mullet. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

DebraLSchubert said...

Candice, I'd never heard of the website before this pic of my BIL, but it looks like fun. Mullets rule!!! (NOT!)

Missus Wookie said...

Your BIL looks great - I'm sure I've seen him around here actually. My BILs aren't on FB what a loss to FB hmm?

Midlife Jobhunter said...

What a great idea for a post - or a journal entry. Unfortunately, I usually come out with the latter first. Gets me in all kinds of trouble.

DebraLSchubert said...

MJ, When I saw that pic of my BIL, I knew I had to make a post out of it. It's not everyday that gold like that lands in your lap!!!
