Daddy Dumber Than Daffy Duck

by doodaddy on January 29, 2009

You know that cartoon gag where Bugs gets the better of Daffy by mixing him up?

Daffy: “You take the bomb!”
Bugs: “No, I insist, you take the bomb!”
Daffy: “No, you take the bomb!”
Bugs: “No, I take the bomb!”
Daffy: “I said I take the bomb and that’s final!”
Bugs: “Well, all right then!”

Cue hilarious explosion that drives Daffy’s bill back into his head. (An injury, fortunately, that can be simply shaken out.)

Well, it turns out that that gag doesn’t work in reality.

Me: “That’s my cookie.”
Boobaby: “No, that’s my cookie.”
Me: “No, that’s my cookie.”
Boobaby: “No, that’s my cookie.”
Me: “No, that’s your cookie.”
Boobaby: “Yes. That’s my cookie. And that one’s mine, too.”

Sigh. Yet another way in which life does not imitate art.

I’ve tried the same on my twins and they didn’t fall for it either. Although now that they are a little older they are starting to try this on each other – it’s cute.

@Kelly D – Funnily enough, I can’t make myself stop trying, thousands of times a day. Pretty much any time she makes a declarative sentence.

Darn it, and I was going to try that one too! I read this to my hubby and he said, “why are we making all these smart babies, when we were kids we were dumb and gullible.” 😛

The only trick that worked for me was when flipping coin, I would say “Heads I win, tails you lose.”
And it only works once.
