These are supposed to be bad catchphrases?
My list is up.

LOL. I guess it depends on your perspective. How about the ones that annoy me the most?

“Cinders and Ashes” is a regular phrase around here, because I can’t say “fuckin’ A” in front of my kids. One of the things I miss about having a job is the swearing.

“You have caused confusion and delay” is my favorite Thomas quote of all time.

anna February 8, 2010 at 7:59 am

I use FTC guidelines for swearing. This isn’t working out so well for us. Perhaps I should switich to Thomas speak.

“Hey hey hey, it’s Fat Albert!” Man, I can’t hear that without cringing.

Excellent list. I’m sad to say it brought back far too many memories.

anna February 8, 2010 at 7:59 am

Ahh, Fat Albert. I forgot about him.

Ming Ming is the bane of my existence…

anna February 8, 2010 at 8:01 am

Ming Ming is annoying. I forgot to add when the guinea pig says, “This calls for celery.” that’s pretty bad, too.

I have to respectfully disagree with all Simpsons and Looney Tunes phrases. Any thing that comes from a Disney character, though, I can fully endorse.

anna February 8, 2010 at 2:35 pm

I have a lot of favorites from the Simpsons, including the one that inspired the title to this post. But Bart’s phrases have annoyed me to no end over the years.

“Confusion and Delay”. Is Sir Hat a LEAN specialist, or an industrial engineer? Oh wait, a tI may have to include Thomas in some future training materials.
How about “Exit, stage right”, courtesy of Snagglepuss.

Sir Topham Hat was apparently once referred to as “the fat director” before he was knighted. The only thing I can say for sure is that he is totally, incurably British.

I tawt I taw puddy tat. -Tweety Bird

anna February 8, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Ahh! Yes, the puddy tat one is bad, too.

Heidi February 8, 2010 at 11:15 pm

While I am an avid Simpsons fan, I have to agree wholeheartedly.

My crappy list is up.
