donny osmond: still a dork

donny osmond is matt krebs in 30 years

maybe you can’t tell from the picture…here’s a bigger one with the interesting portions highlighted. donny’s working arsenio’s signature fist pump, and marie…well…let’s just say she got her outfit from a humble wyoming trapper back when tassled leather was ‘in’. but hey, who cares if the osmonds are dorks? the honoree at the event (a big donor to the university) seems happy. [story]

and let us not forget that now-famous pepsi commercial:

OZZIE OSBOURNE: Not now. I’m just…
KELLY OSBOURNE: We really want to show you something.
OZZIE OSBOURNE: I have got something to do. I’m trying to…
JACK OSBOURNE: You really should see this.
OZZIE OSBOURNE: What is it then? What is it?
JACK OSBOURNE: These aren’t Pepsis. They’re Pepsi Twists.
OZZIE OSBOURNE: You’re a bunch of bloody magicians.
KELLY OSBOURNE: And we’re not the Osbournes.
DONNY OSMOND, MUSICIAN: We’re the Osmonds.
MARIE OSMOND, MUSICIAN: We’re the Osmonds.
MARIE OSMOND: I’m a little bit country.
DONNY OSMOND: I’m a little bit rock ‘n’ roll.

    Since I’m away from campus I’ve been frequenting Newsnet’s web site (which I will not provide a link to, on principle). I saw this picture and wondered who the fist-in-the-air foolio was. I think Osmond is cool and all, but I was like, “Whoa!”

    When I saw the headline on the front page, I experienced temporary dyslexia and thought it said something about Mary Lou Retton, which made the fist-pump a little less weird (maybe they were watching Olympic highlights?).

    Oh well…it’s good to see that things are still interesting in Provo.

    that’s a perfect picture for a saturday morning. anyone that was at least in grade school in the late ’80s and early ’90s knows that it’s still cool and always will be. and don’t forget about the sound that went along with the pump, you know that monkey/ape sound.
