WTF Wednesday - OUI


We subscribe to an online service called Crime Mapping which enables momma to be paranoid about all police activity within a five mile radius of our estate.

A very popular offense is one called OUI.

Now Momma says that this particular transgression used to be called DUI, but then I guess the French got involved and renamed it OUI. Now, why, I ask, would you choose a word that means YES in French to describe a most dangerous human activity? Huh?

And what's up with that other thing called WII which is not YES or drunk driving, but yet another technological money pit for more twenty first century types than myself?






But of course, at the end of the day, the WTF moment here is that it is all pronounced WEE!

WEE! Like tinkle, potty, pee pee, whatever. I mean really, who wants to see that people are being arrested for WEE'ing around town?

Hey! Wee is wee whether you spell it OUI or WII or whatever, right?

But meaning no disprespect to my French speaking pals, I thought I would see what it was like to oui instead of wee.

PeeWee (ha ha, his name has wee in it) wanted to try it too.



The discrete behind the snow bank oui.







Watering the ferns oui.






Full leg lift oui.







Token leg lift oui.







Snow removal oui.






That felt pretty good.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. If you want a related over the top WTF, check out this movie which is totally for real, I kid you not (warning R-rated for showing an anatomically correct doll - seriously).

Oskar said...

I really love your snow melting technique!

Tucker said...

I have done the wee on sidewalks, grass, snow, dirt, in the water pond, and on the ice pond.

I have also done the wee on the floor in the house but that's only when I was a baby, I don't do that any more.

woof - Tucker

Tank said...

Frankie Furter said...

Shame the Olympics are over. You two could have been on the OUI team.
PeeS... I have been having a bloggie problem so YOU might not be able to see tomorrow's post. Soooo (just in case) you gotta go see Ruby and Penny's blog... Penny is wearing her new collar slid. As Raymond said, "sparkly".

Niamh said...

I am most impressed by your OUI, WI capabilities boys. You have given me a great example to emulate.

Your friend,
Ambrose

Joe Stains said...

Go big or go home, we are going to watching the video!

Am I the only one who ducked?

You're looking like a snowman assassin in that last pic large one. :)

The OP Pack said...

Mango, we have lots of examples of oui, or wii, or wee. Some little pup goes wee wee wee all over the place:)

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Peanut said...

nice wee shots.

Benny and Lily said...

agree...they should really rename it to tinkle. Since mom works with all the little criminals who are not adults yet, she would just love that site!
Keep her save Mango

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Living in a house full of girls, I am most impressed by your wide range of ouis. And I think your Mom has some unusual ways of spending her free time. I'm just saying...

ScrapsofMe said...

It must be a guy thing, all this talk about bodily functions. I do like the discreet hidden by the snow bank photo. I personally like to have privacy when I releive myself, like behind the house, or at least turning my back on the world and looking the other way.

But, I'm not signing my name Bonnie the OUI/WII scottie today!

just plain Bonnie

BOYZ....humph!

The Musketeers said...

BOL ! who was the one who pee on the snow ? BOL ! isit pee wee ?

Twinkietinydog said...

We came laughing directly from Moose's blog and next thing I know my momma's screaming at your first line. What a way to phrase it. Ouchies our sides. You were very inspired today, oui?
Twinkoui!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Mango,
Oui Oui.. I agree that all these terms are so confusing!! Can't they come up with better names seriously??
Love the OUI techniques.. oh I have got to share with you my latest OUI position.. due to a matter of seriously unfortunate timing, I OUI'ed on my grandpapa last week. He squatted down at the exact spot I chose to pee (or wee??) and we had our backs to each other. He felt something warm trickling down his lower back. LOL...

ocmist said...

Did PeeWee oui, oui, oui all the way home like a good little piggy?

Mango, Dott oui's like you do with the little squat and just a bit of a leg lift cause she doesn't want to wet her dainty little foot!!! Snicker... She's going to be SOOO embarrassed that I told you this, but I owe her one! BG

Dory and the Mama said...

I never attempt to wonder why hoomans name things silly names :-)

Smileys!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Oui mais... or yes but as the case may be... are you going to tell us what the "O" stands for? Or were we not paying attention? We hope the answer is OUI!

McGillicutty said...

Mango, you found me, brother!!!! I'm glad me Laciecakes sent you over. She's me lady!

Very thought provoking and deep post, man! OUI, Wee, Wii....wee being me most familiar of all. You crack me up!

As for the behind the snow pile oui...We do not get snow much in Mississippi (except this winter) but I learned one lesson... don't eat the yellow snow. Stick to the white.

Irish love,
McG

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooo, or should I said Weeee, Oui, or Wii.... Mom said a bad word after that video.......

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Mack said...

I see you made some nice oui oui on the snow!

Two Country Poodles said...

Love your wee or oui tutorial. Very informative. I wonder why the french is obsessed with wee?!?!

Out of curiousity (we asked momma first) and watched the movie. OH MY DOG...that is a childs toy....hmm....That is quite not right!

About that doll... Can I just say, uuhhh...
I doesn't know much about drivings, and DUI's or OUI's I doesn't thinks we use them words.

So... when Mom calls me her "wee little man".... oh, GROSS!!!! I've got to make her stop CALLING me that!

Pearl said...

Gosh Mango, oui think this is a very interesting post!

How are wii ever supposed to know how to spell wee when there are so many strange choices?!

PS I got my Mangominster goodies in the mail! THANK YOU! OUI love them!!!!!

:)

Clive said...

Great post - we're still laughing! We needed some cheering up today!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Marjie said...

The Oui around here is limited due to copious amounts of snow. We do not understand calling DUI OUI, but we do know that the 3 policemen in our little town are never far from our estate. They became most excited last fall when a bridge was being replaced and they could write traffic tickets for strangers traveling the wrong way on a one way street. (What's up with that, anyway? Were those folks driving 2 ways at once? My mastiff brain does not comprehend).

Drools,
Thor

Princess said...

You need some girl oui!

1000 Goldens said...

You are so funny, and then when I saw your keyword label was "pee and poo" I almost died :)

Nuthatch... said...

Perhaps you should change your closing line to "Le Mango - mais oui!" bol

Mom says her co-workers couldn't figure out what she thought was so funny when she read your post as they thought she was working. Banking isn't normally that humourous.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

So does this mean you're going to start spelling your name Pee-Oui?

achieve1dream said...

LMAO!!! Hilarious!!
