..special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a Sesame Street bun.

That McDonalds slogan came out when my son was Sesame Street watching age, and he and I always said it that way together. This morning, for no apparent reason, that saying came to mind, and I absolutelly cannot say it correctly - it must be Sesame Street, even 20 years later! ha

Do you have any other sayings/slogans like that with your family or kids that is a traditional laugh? A clever/funny family catchphrase?

Growing up, my father always made swedish pancakes for breakfast on Sundays. As he was cooking them he would sing this silly little tune he made up:
"Batter, batter, batter, I made it out of clay." (Sung to the tune of the Dredyl Song) I did not know the Dredyl song, so for the first five years of my life or so, I thought I actually was eating clay.

My grandfather favored "Good food, good meat. Good God, let's eat"! I always preferred it to the Catholic "Bless us our Lord and These Thy Gifts etc...

We have a funny memory ... thanks to Sesame Street ... at the time I didn't know about each show being sponsored by a letter of the alphabet. My daughter (now 45) took what she saw quite literally. One day we visited a friend and when she saw the patio table out back she exclaimed "That's an unusually ugly umbrella". I was embarrassed, my friends weren't upset but did comment on it, and my daughter was puzzled at our reaction. A long time later it hit me ... Sesame Street! One show must have been sponsored by the letter 'U' and the patio table was a visual for learning 'u' words. So today, when we see a patio table w/umbrella, we laugh and call it that.

While I'm on a roll -- when the kids were little we moved to another state, and when we started out I looked at the odometer and asked her to remember the number 58803. Well, she never forgot it ... and every once in a while she'll throw it out, like a punch line, and we'll laugh. A silly little thing, but meaningful to us.

Those are so cute!

At 2, my son said "hepticopter" and "albucookie" (we had a cabin in NM not far up - and I do mean up - from Albuquerque).

But he quit saying those when he went into the Marines.

My sister had some doozies when we were young, "College cheese", "bank ruptured", "Bonopoly", and her favorite song,,"Buttons and Bones" were just a few.. Of course, I spoke perfectly.

My dad is always coming up with bizarre songs and sayings to mark various occasions.

-Everytime we go camping, he'll wake us up at 4:30 in the morning to say, "Anybody want some hot cocoa??" It's horrible, NO, obviously we want to keep sleeping.

-He sings a weird song anytime you get into his car, "Buckle up for safety, buckle up!!" He claims it was from some old television commercial.

-He bought this beater car to go camping in, a huge brown beast of a car he called, "La Bamba". Suffice it to say, we couldn't climb in without hearing him sing that song.

On vacation, we'd come to a toll booth, and the kids would giggle and announce that Dad had to pay the troll.

My sister, when very young, told my Mom that the Sun was shitely brining. The Sun hasn't been shining brightly in our family ever since. The Brits ought to like this one

I'm fond of singing snippets of song lyrics that fit the situation, some family members hate it, could be the voice not the actual lyrics causing the problem.

Oh thanks Mr. Tim, now I've heard the original!! I'm going to have to show that to my dad, sure to bring some laughs.

Yeah, and we lived in Little Rock Arkansas in 1962. This was during the Cuban Missile Crisis. We had a big box of canned food in a closet. I would discretely drop packages of candy into the box, and was thinking what a great time it would be when we used it! I was 7 yrs old at the time BTW. One day the entire city had an evacuation exercise. Kids had to be picked up from school at a specified time etc. My grandmother was staying with us, and I remember my dad telling her one day (guess it was the day we were supposed to get nuked) to soak down the mattresses with a hose and put them up against the windows. Apparently dad hadn't counted the number of mattresses vs windows!
I didn't care, as long as there was plenty of candy in the box!

We all sing the buckle up song in our house too - but the real song is a fake fight song called "Buckle Down Winsocki"

My son couldn't say 'hallelujah' so we all still say 'halleYOUlah'!

Also, he looked at a sliver of a moon one night and said "Look mom, a treasure moon!" I was utterly baffled until I realized he had said 'Chesire Moon' and he meant that it looked like the Cheshire cat's smile It will always be a 'treasure moon' to me!

If you liked the "Buckle Up for Safety" commercial, you'll also like the Reddy Kilowatt commercial - I think it's about the same vintage from the '60s.

I also stumbled across a vintage Green Giant commercial (shot in black and white) where the background chorus chanted subliminally "Ho Hum, Buy Some. Ho Hum, Buy Some."

I think this was the beginning of the glory days for Madison Avenue.

Thanks, now I have the seat belt song stuck in my head. As soon as I saw Jeremy's post, it jumped in there and won't go away. There was a particular road we had to ride on to arrive at the cabin we stayed at on Buckhorn Lake every year. My sister and I always called it "Ticklebelly Road" because of the little hills that would cause that tickly feeling in your belly when you hit them just right and Dad always made sure he did. Then we knew we were almost there. Thanks to everyone for sharing your memories, they have brought back many of mine.

A friend wrote me and didn't understand that yes, I know the saying always went "sesame seed" bun. I just wanted that friend to know, yes, that was the family joke of the thing.

I shall not mention the name of that PP eating fiend.

When my wife and I were driving back to college after our honeymoon, we were singing the Oreo song (No reason, really!) and missed our exit.

"Cause a kid'll eat the middle of an Oreo first, and save the chocolate cookie outside, for last."

Pasgetti. Cagoose. Anumilum. Words our kids used.

When our daughter was young we bought her a stuffed Sesame Street Snufalufagus. She would try and say Snufalufagus but it would come out sounding obscene. She turned a few heads at family gatherings.

Yes Jank, what is a "PP eating fiend"? Because Al's mind seems to have gone to 'peepee', but my brain sees it as Power Point!

My (other) daughter always made her blackcurrant drinks with cordial topped up with water from the syda sophen. It still sticks to this day.

I'm not as old as there are calories in a peppermint pattie yet! And you're not far behind my age, either, bucko!

My grandson Alex had the best baby talk ever. He's almost 25 an we all still call that chocolate drink WahOOah because he couldn't say Yoo-Hoo, and he wanted one from every store we passed!

When he was really little his mom lived in Jax Beach and we lived about 30 miles away in Yulee, which in those days required a trip across the river on the ferry and a long drive. It must've seemed even longer to him when they came up on weekends, just about the biggest thing he could think of. When we would snuggle and tickle and have the "I love you more" argument, he would always win and melt my heart by flinging his arms wide and telling me, "Nana, me luh you all way you hou, all way back!"
