Hello Mr. Gopher

Photobucket


I have to admit something... I totally dig the gopher from Caddyshack. Get it? Dig? I can hardly stand myself for that one... :o)


Ever since Caddyshack came out a gazillion years ago, every time I hear "I'm Alright" by Kenny Loggins, I feel the need to do the Gopher Dance. C'mon, you know the one. Admit it, you've probably done it yourself. Maybe when you're alone in the car? Or late at night when no one is watching? I don't even have the decency to wait until I'm alone. I do it wherever I am and no matter who is watching. That's how deep my love for the gopher goes. Sometimes I even break out in the dance without the music. If anyone is watching, I have to do the dance and ask, "Who am I?" I have yet to find a person who doesn't get the correct answer. Then again, I usually only ask people who are around my own age. It's a good thing that this commercial came out a little while back to introduce the beloved gopher to a whole new audience.


I think I'm going to have to teach the dance to my daughter. She'll need to be prepared in case she ever goes to another ball...

Hi, just found your blog today and was reading back on some posts and saw this one and had to say something. Did you see a couple of years back that Target stores had the Gopher in doll form and you push a button and he does the dance as the music plays? I was dusting my shelves the other day and was dusting one my mom gave me for Christmas one year and I couldn't help getting down with the little guy. Our secret, ok. LOL! Love your blog. :-)

Oh. My. Gosh. I NEED one of those!!! I wish I had seen them there - I practically live at Target. I wonder if I could find one on ebay...
