I'm a sponge! Why am I screaming?


If I have the misfortune of falling to my death, my last thoughts will probably be …  “I’m plummeting … I never thought I’d be plummeting … who says plummeting? … oh no! when people talk about me they’re going to include ‘he plummeted to his death‘ after my name all the time!”

If it’s a long drop, I  might start thinking about those “lateral thinking riddles” too!

a man approaches the middle of a field. When he gets there he knows he will die. How does the man know this?

If it’s a really long drop, I’ll probably do some screaming as well.


note: I’m not afraid of heights … it’s just the ground down below that makes me a bit nervous sometimes.

double note: I hope I’m a Bumble … because Bumbles  bounce! … if you didn’t know.

  1. Why does he die in the middle of his field???
    Is he aproaching it from above with a failed parachute??? Plummeting to his death???
    I’m glad I’m not a plummeter

  2. I like the way spongebob is demonstrating the plummeting effect

  3. At least plummeting to your death makes it sound interesting — it beats a heart attack on the toilet!

  4. When you have plummeted we can say “Planetross, he plummeted to his death, but then he bounced because he is a Bumble.” Then it would be followed by “Lookie what he can do!”

    I am very fearful of heights. My legs get weak and I get a sick feeling.

  5. Thanks for the comments.

    Tony: I used some pretty big effects on SpongeBob: a chair, a glass panel from my tv stand, and a camera! I’m old school!
    I call it plummation … it’s like animation, but not so much moving.

    Dennis the Vizsla: true. I guess popping like a balloon wouldn’t be so cool either.

    Tammy: your comment just showed up! I guess thinking you will bounce might be a good thing: disappointment will be over quickly. hee hee!

  6. I don’t think you got the “lookie what he can do” part. Or did you?

  7. Tammy: I did not. I thought it was either a “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” line that I’d forgotten or a “SpongeBob” line that I never heard.
    Please enlighten me … I feel heavy.

  8. When the Bumble places the star on the tree at the end and Yukon says, “lookie what he can do”.

    I know “Rudolph” lines, but I’m a little vague on “SpongeBob”.

  9. Tammy: it’s all coming back to me now. I’ll have to search for copies of the Rankin and Bass Christmas classics and have a Christmas in July party … no eggnog though. (sad face)
