Boom Boom Shakka Lakka

This afternoon we saw the trailer for Ice Age 3 with the song "Walk the Dinosaur." Of course, being a teen in the 90's I knew the song well and started singing "boom boom shakka lakka lakka boom, boom boom shakka lakka boom boom" with much gusto and fervor.

My 12 year old just looked at me with the blankest stare that held mild undertones of disdain. Her look totally stopped me in mid shakka lakka and I said, "Well, it was cool back when I was in junior high."

She didn't even blink when she said, "Was, Mom. Was."

There's a Was, (not Was) joke in there somewhere... and I sincerely hope you made it.

We....the people
