This cracks me up.

I don't know what kind of Netflix ads people have around the country or the world (if you guys in other countries even HAVE Netflix), but this ad cracks me up. I'll make presents for everyone who can correctly finish this statement.
"What comes next in this sequence: Sequoia, hummingbird, ___________"

Edit: I apologize for not being clear :) This is part of a Netflix ad that plays on the radio station The Whistler listens to every day. And every time I hear it, no matter if it's the third or tenth time I've heard it that day, this line makes me laugh. It's part of a series staged like a quiz show, in which one person asks absurd questions (i.e. What's the square root of Thursday?), and the responder answers with something equally absurd (Sunday afternoon). I think what gets me is the way this particular girl spits out the answer. I'll post it tomorrow if nobody get it. Unfortunately I don't have the audio, so you'll all probably just look at me out of the corner of your eye and go ".. uh-huh." and quietly move along with your day. It's ok, I'm used to it :D

We love it and I'm sorry to say I've never heard that radio ad here in Dayton, Ohio.

LOL!! no fair posting as anonymous, how am I supposed to make a present for you if I don't know who you are?? :)

I found out that there is a restaraunt called "The Hummingbird" that is in Sequoia National park. So I think maybe the answer is a menu item called canelloni.

I just heard the commercial and put the sequence into google because I couldn't be sure I actually heard "panatalones." Your blog came up first. I am relieved to know others think this is amusing too!
