Subway thinks you don’t know what a ‘badonkadonk’ is


Yeah, so, watching TV with me isn’t as awesome as you think.

I know, I know. You probably think watching TV with me is amazing; that I sit here and spout amazing, thoughtful insights. The truth is … well, not so much.

Tonight, mighty, mighty good man David and I were watching the San Francisco Giants vs. Colorado Rockies game. The Rockies have a pitcher named Josh Outman. The following conversation actually happened.

Me: Do you think when he strikes someone out he says, “You’re out, man,” and then gives them the finger guns? *gives David the finger guns*

David: Maybe.

Me: It seems like a missed opportunity to me.

David: It is.


Me: Don’t you love watching sports with me?

David: I really do.

Also, while watching Giants games, we constantly see the same commercials. Most of them are only mildly annoying, but one of them makes me so angry. It’s a commercial for Subway.

Subway wants us to think their crappy sandwiches are good for you, so this commercial is set in a fast food joint that is trying to sell really fattening meals. One of those meals is called, “the Badonkadonk Butt.” The reason I get some mad about this commercial is because a badonkadonk is a butt. So the meal is called a “butt butt.”

Go to hell, Subway.

Let’s forget for a second your lame attempt to use “hip” slang, and by “hip” I mean “totally not hip.” Obviously, you think people won’t know what a badonkadonk is so you added “butt” to make it crystal clear. Seriously, it’s insulting as one of your “sandwiches.” People know what a badonkadonk is. How dare you, Subway!

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. OK so what bugs me about that commercial is not the redundancy of saying badonkadonk butt, but that a badonkadonk isn’t a negative. Trace Adkins sang about the badonkadonk had it going on like donky kong. How can that be a bad thing?

  2. I know a badonkadonk when I see one, though maintaining that knowledge requires extensive and ongoing field observations.

  3. If you only get some mad at this ad, I’d hate to see you in full flaming anger mode.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
