Ganpati Bappa Morya!

This is the Hindu god Ganesh. Our family has this weird “thing” about it, kind of an internal family joke/tradition thing. We mean no disrespect to Hindus, but we saw this video from India that was really funny and part of it had Ganesh and “Ganpati Bappa Morya!:” and it became kind of a family “joke” with us. We think Ganesh is cool with his elephant head and we have made this whole thing out of it that only our family would understand; like an “inside joke”(like how we did with “Pogue Mahone” when I was in Ireland and developed this whole character out of it,made it this family joke thing, and now I even use as my screen name). The family’s “fascination” with Ganpati(and other things) would puzzle outsiders. For us it’s this big “thing” and we have these elaborate “story lines” based around it and have fun.We get attached to something(The “All your base are belong to us” is another example) and then it just goes from there and branches out into all sorts of idiocy! It’s not in a disrespectful,making fun sort of fun(and we have nothing against Hindus or anyone else), but our family is unusual(to say the least) and we always get “attached” to certain things that just strike us in certain ways and seem to “stick”,we base a whole  big thing out of it,make characters and story-lines out of it, and then it gets blown out of proportion and becomes a secret family “ritual” that no one else would get but to us it makes perfect sense.Anyone else hearing/seeing it would shake their head and go,”Whaaaat?” as we laugh,cry, and convulse in hysterical giggles,It’s one of those “you had to be there” sort of things. I know, we’re weird!  🙂
