You're Not Alone

When you're watching conference and they say that the next speaker is going to be Dallin H. Oaks, do you ever misunderstand and think they said Hall & H. Oates? And then do you have a hard time paying attention during the hymn because you are picturing the next talk looking something like this...
And then when the hymn ends and the speaker does get up, are you ever just a little disappointed?

If so, you're not alone.

(even though right now, you're on your own)

I've had almost the exact same thought. It came after they announced that the speakers were going to be Jeffery R. Holland and Dallin H. Oaks.

OK, this now is my favorite post here - and that's saying something. I hang my head in shame as I admit this publicly, but I have had that thought about Elders Hall and Oaks.

At least I now know I'm not alone in this universe - that others are as twisted as I.

Who are Hall and H. Oates?

mindij said...

Wow. I thought it was just me. Thank you.

Excerpt from next talk:

"........Remember, brothers and sisters, that we will stand accountable for our actions here on Earth. Private eyes, they're watching you. They see your every move. They're watching you watching you watching you............."

Shirts are of course optional in the Quorum of the Eighties.

I was a Sister Hall on the Mission! Private eyes...too funny! I have thought Hall Oates, good to know I'm not the only deranged one...are we going to hell?

Oh, man. Heh heh heh.

Tiffany said...

Wow. So funny.

I just realized that between this post and the Mormon of the Week (Brother Snuka), the first thing people see when they open up my blog is two shirtless guys.

I just want to to make it clear, in case anyone out there thinks I did this deliberately as some sort of personal commentary about the Prop 8 issue, that that is not the case.

It is purely a coincidence. I promise.

On a different note, today was the first time my wife showed any interest in my blog, so I guess I am starting to win her over somehow...

About Snuka...I tried to find something about his LDS-ishness, and couldn't find jack squat. You sure he's really a brutha?

I Am Boymom said...

Well, I never had the thought before, but I will now! I wonder if I should include them on my kids' Conference Bingo Card!?

Matsby said...

I don't think you were really looking, Brother Scott.

Check out his Myspace page: myspace.com/csnuka

Under "Superfly's Details", it lists his religion as Mormon.

He is one of us!

I. Love. This. Blog.

Brother Scott apparently is "Out of Touch." Where are the rest of the song puns in these comments? I'm very disappointed.

Though you're out of touch and out of time, conf'rence is sublime, and your talk will rhyme.

No, you're not alone. Your Rich Girl's watching from her Sandy home. Her Kiss will not be on your Conference list, but from your lips we'll get the gist.

Banter!

I can confirm that Snuka is a Mormon, his son is in my ward, I know that is what all Mormons say. But he really is. I promise I did not teach Steve Martin the discussions while the 3 Nephites watched. :)N

I just found your blog today, and "Quorum of the 80's" really cracked me up. Way to go!

Bjorge Queen said...

I've been reading your conference archives, hoping for more LOL cats. That song about the masonic eye on the temple, watching my every move is all starting to make sense now.

Thank you for this belly laugh. Elder Hall and H. Oaks goes with my other favorite rockin' GA-- Elder L. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers...
