Who/what puts the _____ in _____?

Asked by MacBean (19524points) December 16th, 2008

Lots of families put the ‘fun’ in ‘dysfunctional.’
Rod Blagojevich puts the ‘goober’ in ‘gubernatorial.’
I never did figure out exactly who put the ‘ram’ in the ‘rama lama ding dong.’

How else have you seen/heard this phrase used, or used it yourself?

PnL, don’t forget that we did find out that the fluther user, jenjen567, put the ram in the ram- a-lama ding-dong, which is one of the questions in the details section. So I think that Andrew’s answer is right on point.

pnl, i’ll tell you a secret: me either! i was just trying to sound snooty for theatrical effects.
bluefreedom, what about the lime?

Bluefreedom's avatar

@La chica gomela – that’s what I meant to put (Lime) but I couldn’t remember exactly how it went. What a monumental foul up in my answer there. LOL

Lurve for you, by the way, for setting me and my answer straight. :o)
