Dailies: Have You Met Abbie Normal?


Feeling more low-key today, so this will be a short one. The image above is from one of the great parody horror films: Mel Brooks’s Young Frankenstein (1974). Lots of fun with names and mispronunciation of names (“Frankensteen!”), including the supposed owner of the brain that Igor steals for his master: “Abbie Normal.” Hey: no one’s perfect.

Every now and then, when something seems amiss (why are there golfball-sized hailstones coming down out there? why does my foot feel so weird? why do I keep getting invitations to someone else’s 25th anniversary party?), I find myself saying: “Now that’s Abbie Normal.” Pin all the unexplained phenomenon on her; you’ll feel better about it.
