…comes in the form of a video, starring my (former) roommate Sally and myself.
But first (!), a disclaimer: Sally and her sisters grew up making fun of Gerbert, an ultra-conservative puppet whose television show they sometimes watched on a Christian network. While I was not familiar with the program prior to living with Sally and her sisters, they’ve shown me Youtube clips and I can attest that yes, the show is completely ridiculous. Because of his strict morals, it seemed that Gerbert spoke out against everything, to the point where it became a running joke between Sally and her sisters. For example, if one of them laughed, Sally might say in the Gerbert voice (her impersonation is impeccable), “God doesn’t want us to laugh, you know!”. I often prompt Sally to impersonate Gerbert and occasionally throw in a twist, ie, ‘sorority girl’ – another impression Sally does hilariously well – or ‘Gerbert speaking German’. One of my very favorite favors to request of her, though, is Gerbert singing Beyonce, since Sally usually takes creative liberties and changes the lyrics to reflect a more Christian message. All of this is, of course, featured in the video below.
My prediction is that one person will find this funny (besides myself), and that is Sally’s sister, who reads my blog regularly.
But in case you get bored this weekend….here ya go!
