Moose and Jelly

"As soon as I buy the moose head, I have to go pick up some KY jelly."  (An actual sentence spoken aloud in the wild, as recounted in this post—thanks to Deanna Hoak for pointing it out to me.)

Before I clicked, I kinda thought it was going to turn out to have been Moosehead, rather than a moose head. O me of little faith! I was happy to be wrong.

Because I can't help myself:

"oh ye of little faith": 44,800 gHits
"oh me of little faith": 10,200 gHits
"oh we of little faith": 1,020 gHits
"oh he of little faith": 814 gHits
"oh she of little faith": 184 gHits

The numbers are different (and lower) for "O X of little faith", but the ranking is the same.

Ha! that's hilarious and I've added it to my random quote.

The thing is that, even before clicking, I immediately thought, "Oh, I bet she works as..." and was right. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

I'm glad it amused you. There's something about a moose head that just lends itself to comedy.

Huh. IO always thought it was "oh ye have little faith"
