Five Annoying Things About Thank You Blog Posts (And Why I’m Writing One) ((ARCHIVED))


Came across this video the other day . . .

In case you did know, it’s a parody of Blimey Cow’s videos. If you’ve never seen Blimey Cow, you’d better click this link RIGHT NOW!!!

So, I don’t have a YouTube account, and I’m a little late, but I thought I’d try this out. Without further ado, here’s Five Annoying Things About Thank You Blog Posts (And Why I’m Writing One).

1. Favorite . . . Everything!

You know, when they start talking about all their favorite things about whatever they’re talking about. Example . . .

My favorite episode is The One About Big Head Kid! But of course I love love love Seven Lies About Homeschoolers.

My favorite character is . . . DUH . . . Big Head Kid! But I love Cool Jordan too. “Homeschooled? So does that mean you were a genius or an idiot?”

My favorite show line is: “Let me get this straight: You spend eight hours a day in a specific classroom at a specific time . . . every day?! And I’m the one that’s missing out on life experiences? Heeeeeeeeeeeck no!  I got up at six in the morning so I could get all my school done so I could make a tire swing outside. My life is awesome!” – Jordan Taylor, Seven Lies About Homeschoolers.

2. They Re-enact Stuff All the Time

They shows props and things they use to imitate different characters. Like so:


I totally don’t put on these fake purple glasses and pretend to be a female version of Big Head Kid. That would just be crazy! Haha . . . haha . . . ha . . .

3. This Thing Changed My Life

Here’s where they get all sappy and talk about how this has completely changed the course of their life, and without it they’d be a very different person. Kinda like this:

Blimey Cow is just . . . amazing. What else can I even say? I love coming to their channel every Monday and watching the new video. It’s always so funny and I love everything they put out. And their old videos never go out of style either. I will laugh at the same joke a hundred times; it never stops being funny.

Whenever I’m sick or having a bad day or just generally feeling pretty upset and sad, I go to Blimey Cow and rewatch several of their videos. They always lift my spirits, and I walk away with a smile on my face. Every time.

It’s so nice to see good, wholesome entertainment on YouTube. What’s better than a bunch of formerly-homeschooled Christians making videos? A bunch of formerly-homeschooled Christians making videos with high levels of sarcasm. (Seriously, I appreciate the sarcasm.)

Blimey Cow will always be my favorite YouTube channel. If they ever stopped, I’d probably cry. No, not probably. I would cry. They’ve had their ups and downs, but I always love what they come up with. They’ve got a strong faith and a funny attitude, and they’re fun and funny and great. Plus, who doesn’t love Jordan’s laugh?!

4. Thank You, Thank You, and, Wait for It, Thank You!
