[Something] Surprise

with 8 comments

I was thinking about things that are labeled with the word “surprise,” like Tuna Surprise!, or – I saw this at QFC once – Cranberry Surprise! The thing is, Tuna Surprise has tuna in it – no real surprise there – and the Cranberry Surprise looked like cranberries congealed in tuna, which is exactly what it was. Who knew that tuna worked overtime as a surprise double-agent?

Any word can be paired with the word Surprise! and work:

Beef Surprise
Noodle Surprise
Cheese Curd Surprise
Christmas Surprise
Pregnant Surprise
Gay Surprise
WAMU Surprise
Sexual Surprise
Ramen Surprise
Shinto Surprise
Amoral Surprise
Intestine Surprise
Martian Surprise
Commie Surprise
Antler Surprise

My favorite ones so far:  Gas Station Surprise! and Tampon Surprise! I mean, what in the world could be in that gas station? And what kind of surprise involves tampons?

Pretty sure our new band name is Commie Surprise, though. That owns.

  1. I would think a tampon surprise would be not knowing you ran out of tampons.

  2. I think this qualifies as a “tampon surprise”: http://www.regretsy.com/2009/10/04/menstrual-show/

  6. @Badass Geek Yeah, that’s the worst. And it never seems to happen when you’re at home, chilling in your pj’s, right next to the bathroom.

  7. My mom once made a gargantuan tuna surprise that Would. Not. Die. Somewhere around the third or fourth dinner in a row I said, “Ma, this tuna’s not much of a surprise anymore.” Yep, an asshole even at 8 years-old.

  8. @Mike More like… HONEST at 8 years old. And observant. And a little asshole-ish. 🙂
