Disney Characters And Real Life Foot In Mouth Story.




So when I was in product development I used to make lots of Disney products. On one collection I had a sculptor from Connecticut working on these miniature Disney characters. The problem was that when she would ship the clay sculptures, she wouldn't pack them well enough. It always seemed that the noses were getting smooshed.

So every other day or so I'd go up to our design studio and have one of the in-house sculptors fix the nose on the character before I had it molded.

The in-house sculptor was this really sweet Hungarian woman. So the "joke" would go like this:

Me: Eva? Is Eva Around?

Eva: Another nose job?

Me: Yup. Snow White needs a nose job.

And this continued. I'd come in and it would be, "OK, lets give this guy a nose job"

Until.....(get ready..here it comes)

I open up one of the sculptures one day, it's a bit smooshed so I do the usual and go up to our design studio.

Me: Eva...I've got something for you (talking louder than usual for some reason)

Eva: Do you need a nose job?

Me: No. I NEED A HAND JOB!

It was one of those moments that the second it was coming out of my mouth I was trying to put my words back in. She had no clue what I was talking about but a sea of heads started to emerge from cubes and out of doors. It was like a scene from a movie. The only thing missing was this: click here.

Dr Zibbs said...

Mr C - sales rep came in once and gave us the whole presentation. When he left, the room erupted into laughter.

Thanks Some Guy. I've been slacking lately on writing real posts.

Great moments in comedy take place right at the fine line between appropriate and inappropriate behavior. They are often not fully realized until you step way over the line. Thanks for treading on the other side for us, Zibbs.

Dude.

BLOW. BLOW.

Christ...I can give myself my own handjob.

You missed a golden opportunity there.

Chimp said...

Thinking of fetishes, let me know when you get a foot job.

diane said...

That is such a cute story zibbsy. I think I would have really liked Eva.
The trombone reminds me of Shrek 3, yeah, I watch a lot of kids stuff. Which reminds me, how "appropro" that your story took place at Disney, they have the most innuendos of anybody.

Dr Zibbs said...

WestChesterdead - I'm going to carve that sentiment onto a piece of driftwood with dolphins jumping in front of the full moon.

Lostinspace said...

Goot ting she vas hoongarian, yah.

Your CT model maker wasn't someone by the name of Nightingale or Hermann, was it?

Cameron said...

And thus started Zibb's illustrious career in the porn industry.

Dr Zibbs said...

LostInSpace - neither but I may have worked with a Hermann

Cameron - Indeed.

Slyde said...

Cora said...

Any of the Disney Princesses ever get a boob job? C'mon, you can tell me. It was Sleeping Beauty, right?

Dr Zibbs said...

Slyde - If it ever works, let me know. Tape record each attempt too.

Cora - No but I gave Ariel camel toe.

Dale said...
