10 Even MORE Things That I Have Learned From Watching “The Brady Bunch”

WOW! I can’t believe that this is the third post in this informative and life-changing series. Seriously, who would have thought that watching all of those episodes of The Brady Bunch would make me so dang smart. I feel like Einstein. Except for the science and math part, that is. Anyway, here’s MORE crap that I have learned from the show. I have learned that:

  1. Every time Marcia turns around they hand her a blue ribbon or something.
  2. George Washington and Marcia’s English teacher, Mrs. Denton, are very similar looking.
  3. If you dress like a hippie you get your own room.
  4. It only takes one weekend to turn the school’s homliest and most unpopular girl – who has absolutely no self-confidence – into the prettiest and most popular girl in school.
  5. If you’re going to tap dance in the kitchen, don’t do it when your dad is making a souffle.
  6. If you’re in a ghost town and you meet some old prospector who looks like a disheveled Mr. Howell from Gilligan’s Island, don’t follow him into the local jailhouse. 
  7. If some little kid named Oliver ever comes to live with you, then you should probably stay away from him. He’s a jinx.
  8. If you see a UFO in your backyard, it’s probably fake.
  9. If Vincent Price ties you up then you’d better tell him where you found that damn Tiki idol.
  10. You shouldn’t activate your fabricated haunted house until you actually KNOW FOR SURE who is coming through the front door.

10 MORE Things That I Learned From Watching “The Brady Bunch”

As stated in another post, I have learned a lot from watching The Brady Bunch. Here are 10 more things that I have learned. I’ve learned that:

  1. When the glue bottle says that it takes from 2-4 hours to dry, they really mean it.
  2. The word swiftly is used as an adverb in the sentence, “The boy ran swiftly.”
  3. The Hank Colman Show tapes its shows one day in advance.
  4. It takes less that 10 minutes to search an entire amusement park to find lost architecture plans.
  5. If you compete on a talent show, you’re probably going to lose to Patty’s Prancing Poodles.
  6. People who score essay contests can’t add.
  7. It’s probably not a good idea to wear a wig to Lucy Winter’s birthday party.
  8. If someone gives you a Tiki idol, don’t wear it when you go surfing.
  9. Flashlights are great for storing beans.
  10. You shouldn’t leave baked potatoes in the oven for 3 hours.
