My sister, holding up the bag she’s putting the leftover challah in: You know why I need this?

Me: No, why?

My sister: Because I’m a challah bag girl.

  1. There are people out there who get this joke. Sadly, I am not one of them.

  3. I read it as a pun on “holla back girl.” Definition.

  5. Witt is correct. Don’t you guys know the song?

  6. (If it makes you guys feel better, I have never heard the song. I only know the phrase from tacky Craigslist ads.)

    And Teo, you have a lot of nerve expecting other people to know song lyrics, is all I can say.

  7. Holy smokes, that Wikipedia article is disturbingly complete.

  8. (Nobody has even remarked on the painful pun in the post title. Does your sister read your blog, Teo?)

  9. 6: I don’t think I’ve ever heard the whole song, just bits and pieces. And you only have to know the title to get the joke.

    8: No, she doesn’t even know I have one. I considered telling her about it for this post, though.

  10. 5: No. And 6 describes my reaction to your expecting me to, too.

  11. Somehow I had gotten the impression that people other than me were familiar with popular music.

  14. Somehow I managed to hear this first.

  15. I got the joke, but only because I read about harajuku girls and that song on the internet on some thread at Pandagon, back when I still read Pandagon.

  16. Versatile pun. I noticed this during “Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!”
