House of Crazy

In this episode of House of Crazy we begin with Rechelle making fun of April's fall decor that she worked hours and endless hours to please the Internet. Rechelle has just made a comment on the use of April's jars filled with bananas to catch fruit flies and refers to the fall foliage as another fly trap. April responds to her sister's remarks with some highly intelligent and well thought out words. Then the cast moves quickly into another example of April's family's extreme lack of care regarding her fear of large bugs in the house. The question you will be asking at the end of this episode is, Could they be any louder or more obnoxious?

Cast and Characters

Clay-himself
Rechelle- gigantic bug crawling on the counter top or Cockroach
Ellen- her loving,beautiful, elegant, well versed, tidy and timid mother
Giant red obstacle being played by Seth's head

I hate to break this to you, but your kids are better actors than you. In fact, I do believe Ellen deserves an emmy or an oscar or something.

Or maybe just a raise in her allowance.

LOL - y'all are too fun! But, I wonder, If you stuck Rechelle with your kids that day and now you made her play a big bug being thrown out the door . . . what is pay back going to be like?

hehe

Rhea said...

FABULOUS reenactment! I think the award goes to Rechelle for her excellent beetle poses. And to your daughter Ellen for her ear-splitting screams. And to Clay for being the hero of the day.

You guys totally crack me up.

Rhea said...

BTW, I know the best concoction to trap fruit flies. Seriously.

And, did I tell you your sister has me hooked on Coldplay's Viva La Vida now?

Rechelle said...

FIrst I'd like to thank the producers and the writers and all the little people that made this film the success that it is, And my mom! LOVE YOU MOM! and my DAD!!! But mostly I would like to think GAP jeans for their mid rise option, because if I had been wearing a pair of low rise jeans this film would have to be rated R.

april- you are totally one of my favorite blogs! and if it helps any- i totally flip out over helgramites. do you know what they are? and- they come in 3 stages- larvea,crawling and flying. lots to scream and flipout about. i'm just like that- but maybe worse!

I think Ellen's screaming talents are wasted on the small screen. She needs to go to NY or LA! Great job everyone. Special note to the bug lad, she made the role her own.

Sharon said...

Thanks for the laugh. I am one of those people whose throat slams shut and can't utter a sound. So when those giant beetles invade my house and start chewing on my leg, no one will hear a thing until they are finished and burp.

Mama DB said...

That was awesome. Rechelle was fabulous and the jeans she is wearing are indeed fabulous.

OMG I have tears in my eye.
I was waiting for Clay to really throw her out the back door..I probably would have pee'd my pants.

You guys have so much fun together!!

Round of applause to all your performances!!

Sally-Ann said...

Bravo, Bravo, Encore, Encore!!!!
Clay should have stuck to the original however, and thrown the "bug" out the door in the reinactment. Gently thrown however, we don't want any injuries.
You guys crack me up.

Beth said...

Incredible. The authenic nature of the film! The acting was magnificent. I'm just a bundle of emotion from watching it.

I may not sleep tonight after watching Rechelle's beetle.

Carol said...

you all crack me up!! your husband is so sweet to play with everyone...and fyi...your daughter makes a wonderful you!

Des said...

We need to be neighbors because that was hysterical. I would have ran right over once I heard all of the screaming and then I would have held your hand and screamed with you. LOVE your daughter. Wow. and you gotta love the supportive sister.

Molly said...

I love your videos! perfect antidote to a long day.

Becky Meyers said...

LOL!! rechelle looks JUST like you april. that was hilarious!!

ladyfi said...

You all deserve Oscars... and a free pair of earplugs.

jill said...

I SO wish I were part of your family. I'd happily film the rest of you guys all day long!

I've no doubt Ellen has her Mom down pat! I may have to go back and rewatch the chicken coop horror episode...or the re-enactment of Rechelle falling down the stairs...SO funny!

Do you have a kegerator?

Maren said...

Funny!:) I love visiting your blog!

Darn it, I wish I could watch this but the computer that I can actually watch videas on is down. I am sure it's another Oscar worthy performance.

Lori Shaffer said...

Love the way Clay pulls up his britches and starts struttin' like he just rescued a damsel in distress. Nice...

Lisa said...

I've watched this several times, and I've laughed my a** off every time.

Oh, and (whispering)...you might not want to tell him, lest he get a big head...but Clay? Totally hot! And funny. Which, in my book, is usually synonomous with hot.

Rechelle said...

Hohnee - went and got yerself a new header. That's right purty!

Jules said...

I like the new header too. I almost fell off my chair laughing while I was watching it. I think it was fitting that Rechelle was wearing a black shirt...in honor of the beetle and all.

Jules said...

I just reread my comment and realize that made no sense. So here it goes again...

I like your new header.

I almost fell off my chair laughing while watching this video.

Yikes, apparently I need more caffeine.

Jenni said...

Oh. My. Gawd. I did not believe anyone else's family could be so loud as mine.
