The EHAP!

(Effects of Habitual Animaniacs Perusal)

Compiled by OdosBucket

Let's face it, we all watch too much Animaniacs. Many of us also read alt.tv.animaniacs entirely too often. There is, of course, nothing wrong with this, but it can result in behavior which tempts the uninitiated to lock us up in mental asylums. However we, as fans, find this behavior quite amusing. Thus this document, the Effects of Habitual Animaniacs Perusal (EHAP), where we can laugh at each other's insanity, and, when someone tries to lock us up, we can grab this and say, "That's nothing! See what so-and-so did!"

And now, with no further ado...

YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING TOO MUCH ANIMANIACS WHEN:

*The only song you can think of begins 'It's time for Animaniacs....'
*Every third sentence in conversation is 'WHY?'
*You end every conversation with 'Okay, I love you, bye-bye'
*Every question begins with 'Are you pondering what I'm pondering...'
*You have an urge to burst into song whenever you see a cat (or dog)

--Skippy
 

*You find it impossible to walk down steps without saying "Boingy! Boingy! Boingy!"
*You wake up on Saturday morning at 9:46am and scream "ARGH! I've missed Animaniacs!" and then realise it's Wednesday. (Half-term at the moment).
*You feel a sudden urge to talk to the camera every so often.
*You feel a sudden urge to walk around with no trousers on.
Eeeerrr... Prehaps I should see a p-sycatrist...

--Ben Carter
 

Your wife's friend takes out your A! tape from the VCR and plays an AMWAY tape to try to sell the wife....you come home, find out, and become SO ENRAGED you throw your wife and all her friends out of the house for the night! (True story)...

--Don "If we get divorced I want the P&TB plushies" Speirs
 

When your astronomy instructor finishes naming the planets that were known in Tyco Brahes time, you blurt out, "You forgot Uranus!"

You see someone described in print as a wacko and you immediately shout, "That's *K*-K-O!"

Some co-workers point out that in your business correspondence, E-mail and documentation you consistently misspell "okkay".

--Marv
 

OK, how 'bout....
*You answer the phone by saying "Hellooooo, Nurse!!", scaring away the people from Temple Beth-el-chevre-mish-mosh-whatever calling for your Catholic mother (or the nice ladies from St. Mary of the Infinite Heart convent and school calling for your Jewish father)
*All of your friends say that you're waaay too into cartoons: you reply "Let the anvils ring, sweetie!" and mime dropping one on him or her or whatever.
*You've written a major term paper on an idea you got from an Animaniacs episode.
*You sing Rita's songs in classes... and get compliments.

--Lari
 

You go up to the survey ppl and ask them questions like "Do you like beans, do you like george wendt?"....and on and on and on and on and on *CLANG* and onnn.

--Justin Ray Mcelhanon
 

The local WBSS gallery manager asks you questions about the show.

--Rex Wheeler
 

You see an orange and black flyer on campus for a fraternity party entitled "Boo Bash" and your immediate thought is that they are going to sit around making fun of Chicken Boo! (And several minutes later when it finally hits you that it's a Halloween party, you promptly accuse the fraternity of being composed of giant chickens!)

--Lara
 

You see a pigeon wandering around your car and greet it in an Italian accent...

Mallets are more portable.

You're listening to the original broadcast of Orson Well's War of the Worlds...... suddenly you picture a mouse in a bad hair piece and another mouse in a rubber glove, in yet another plot to rule the world........

--Babs
 

You flick on the TV to join an ANIMX ep on Global in progress, just to see if it's a new one, and you instantly know both the ep title and number just by listening to a single line of dialogue before the picture tube warms up enough to let you see what you're listening to.

(I think I need a holiday...or a life...whichever costs less)

--Chance
 

In your resume, under "Previous Job Description", you put down "P-Sychiatrist to 3 zany puppy children!"

You see a sign for a city representative hoping to get elected, and think that if some people saw it, they might vote for the person because his name is Jess.

--Keeper
 

*You are in a p-sychology study on memory (making $8 an hour I might add) when one of the tasks in the series is: "Tell me as many words as you can in one minute that start with the letter F." You stumble over "frankincense."
*In a slide lecture section for a course on medieval history, dealing with the Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Beckett's tomb, you hear: "The same scene is shown in the lower panel of the casket that once held the archbishop's mortal remains. Not all of them, however, because Canterbury kept giving pieces away to special friends." You figure the Warners must have taken a wrong turn at Sussex.
