Bonjour Jackass!


One of my few saving graces back in the day when Matt and I visited Paris was night times spent watching Jackass.

I can hear the audible groans. I know. Not something you'd expect from me... Or is it?

Much to Matt's dismay, each night after a big day wandering through the streets, I'd crawl into bed and watch Jackass. The only English-speaking show that was airing on French TV at the time (that I could find). I loved it. I freaking loved it. After overloading on conversations I couldn't decipher beyond hello (bonjour) and thank you (merci!), Jackass was incredible cinema. Cough.

And as if to rekindle those fond memories, when Matt would rather read Foucault while I watched grown men do ridiculously stupid things, Spike Jonze has released Jackass IN 3D!

Matt doesn't want to see it. How rude! Looks like I'm seeing this one solo.

I have a mini jackass in the making.... not sure I want to see what he may get up to as he gets older.

When my husband and I were in Milan for a while when we were 17 we too became obsessed with Jackass for the exact same reasons. It was the only thing we could understand on the TV. Love it. Now go see it in 3D and report back xx

My husband and I had a date night the other night, we went to see Jackass 3D. Sometimes you need a little stupid humor in your life...and watching Johnny Knoxville isn't too bad either!

i am ALL ABOUT JACKASS. no secrets. no confessions. i unashamedly love that juvenile debauchery. my 7 yr old just discovered it too and can't get enough - which is sort of scarey, but sort of awesome too.
