And then try something tastier


Really, I respect vegetarians. I wish I could eliminate meat from my diet. I don't wish, however, to be subjected to your vanity plate mind control. Thanks for the suggestion. I've tried my fair share of tofu, but think I am going to stick to my strict diet of Hawaiian Punch, donuts, and bacon for now.

This totally reminded me of my favorite song from the cartoon series Doug on Nickelodeon (circa 1993)-- The Beets "Killer Tofu."

Thanks goes to Heidi for pointing this one out.

Aah Eee O! Killer Tofu! I LOVED Doug!

Tofu, eh....not so much. It may taste like whatever you cook it with, but it still feels like eating a little piece of sponge.

hey herbee... you took the words right out of my mouth!! I was going to say the EXACT same thing... talk about mind control.

I don't think I have the stomach for tofu

Oh, thanks for reminding me, I have to take my Thanksgiving tofurkey out of the freezer. You know how long it takes for a 12 lb. block of that stuff to thaw!!! My family would kill me.

I miss Doug...

I'm pretty sure "Killer Tofu" was the ONLY song from Doug, to say nothing of favorites. On the other hand, Doug was far and away one of the best cartoons of the 90s.

Artist: The Beets
Songs: "Killer Tofu", "I Need Mo' Allowance", "Where's My Sock?", and "You Gotta Shout Your Lungs Out"

Also, there is the awesome theme song and "Think Big" which Doug and Skeeter did.

Maybe you need to see a few more episodes. This should help:

@ Michael: There were definitely more songs in Doug than just "Killer Tofu".

"Where's My Sock?" by The Beets
"Bangin' on a Trash Can" by Doug and the Neighborhood Band
"Patti, You're the Mayonnaise for Me" by Doug Funnie, which he made in a "make your own music video" booth. (That one might not be the right song title, if that song even had a title.)
And I know The Beets had another song, something about raking leaves for money... as, yes, "I Need More Allowance", which goes a little something like this:
I need more allowance (yodelayheehoo)
I need more allowance (yodelayheehoo)
I need more allowance (yodelayheehoo)
Why? Because I do!
I need more allowance

I need more allowance (yodelayheehoo)
I need more allowance (yodelayheehoo)
I need more allowance (yodelayheehoo)
Hey! I'm talkin' to you
I need more allowaaaaance

Anyone else know of any other songs on Doug?

Jane said...

PTOR , you stomped me. Dang. I guess I shouldn't have spent as much time typing up the lyrics for "I need more allowance", which I guess is properly "I Need Mo' Allowance". I'll trust your authority on this one.

I saw one the other day that said
"55 MPG" on a prius. I couldn't help but think about that south park episode..."THAAANKSSS"

Tofu. Eeeuuuwww. Kudos to the folks who can stomach it; I'm not one of them. Sorry guys, but my genetic makeup has not yet evolved past the omnivore stage. In a world without meat, I would shrivel and die.

Actually I'm amused that it's a California plate. Like, "of course, it's a California plate!" You wouldn't see a Go Tofu Nebraska plate, would you?
