Ain’t looking good for Bob…

As I was trying to make dinner last night (and by dinner, I mean fish sticks and frozen corn – don’t judge, that food pyramid thing was just heresay , right?), my children were playing under the kitchen table so nicely together. No crying, no yelling, just laughing and enjoying being siblings.  Until I heard a loud shriek.  My daughter then started bawling her brains out and yelling, “No, no, she’s gone and he did it.”  I run over and say, “Who, sweetie? Who’s gone?”  as I comfort her and try to help her through what looks like a painful moment.  “RAPUNZEL!”, she yells and points to this scene:

The dude in the truck is Bob the Builder. I’m not sure he is that actual toy but that’s what we call him in our house.  It seems that Bob ran over Rapunzel then threw his arms up in the air as if to say, “Hell, yeah, got another one!  Power to the Construction Workers!”  As I tried not to laugh in the face of my crying child, I looked over at her brother who was taking the truck and making it run over Rapunzel repeatedly while manically laughing. This wasn’t getting any better.

Needless to say, my daughter quickly grabbed Rapunzel, who now had tire marks imprinted into her plastic skin, and said to me, “Bob is a bad, bad man. Who runs over a princess??”  Ah yes sweetie, you simply can’t trust a man who has no last name. I must admit though, Bob did something I have only dreamed about doing.  I have fantasies about taking all those Barbies and princesses and putting them in the exhaust pipe in my car to then watch them shoot out across the street with soot all over them when I turn the engine on. Kinda envy Bob. The dude has balls, gotta give him that.



  1. LMFAO! That has to be the best thing I’ve seen all day. Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

  2. Love it! Many of us would like to run over Rapunzel, her plastic shoes, her penis-less boyfriend… good work, Bob!!

  3. Ahahaha!! This made me laugh! I have a few dolls I’m going to give Bob to take care of… 😉

  4. Love this and seriously had to share and made my brother and husband read, too. Both were hysterical laughing!!

  5. Crack me up!

  6. Poor Rapunzel. Got run over by yet another pants-less construction worker. You just can’t trust ’em.

    Thanks for the Friday Funny!!

  7. Ha! Boys!! I used to love Barbies, actually! I never had any self-esteem issues because of her…I guess I didn’t realize I was supposed to have them! 😛

  8. Laughing so hard! That looks like something that could easily go down at my house at any given moment!!!

  9. tee hee hee… this did make me laugh on SO many levels. I think even the tips of my toes giggled. I once rescued a Barbie someone had put up as an unflattering lawn ornament. You just can’t DO THAT to a princess! LOL

  10. Haaaaa!!!! With all of the Barbie’s I had growing up I’m sure my mother made Bob do it. Revenge is sweet, especially decades later.

  11. Thanks for sharing – stopping by from #SITSSharefest

    That is too funny. And I think shows the difference between boys & girls :)

  12. haha! My daughter has a Snow White Barbie and yesterday it was perched in the strangest position. She was on her hands and knees in a most uncomfortable fashion so of course I took a picture of it and called it “Snow White’s Hangover.”

  13. Hahaha, I never have met a Bob who could be trusted. 😉

  14. That is too cute .. Poor Rapunzel!

  16. Visiting from Mom’s Monday Mingle. I only have boys… but I hear my nieces have been traumatized more than once by their brother :-) I hope you’ll share it at this week’s Friday Flash Blog on The Jenny Evolution ( Would love to have you join our community.

  17. Awww poor Rapunzel! I’m laughing as I’m typing this because I can so relate! My youngest daughter destroys my oldest daughter’s toys all the time!

  18. I know I should not laugh but I did. I can see your daughter though as it would be devastating and I have a little boy who would most likely do the same thing if he had a little sister.
