Bon Bon Queen Meets Bon Qui Qui

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I get all kinds of unusual requests related to my singing telegram service. A few months ago, someone called and asked me to perform a singing telegram for his girlfriend. When I asked him to give me details about her that I could personalize the song lyrics, he replied: "She really likes Bon Qui Qui, and I'd like you to put as many references to Bon Qui Qui as you can into the song." Now, I must confess that I had no idea who Bon Qui Qui (intentionally mispronounced as "Bawn Kwee Kwee") was. Unlike 16 million other viewers, I had not yet seen the MADtv comedy skits on YouTube performed by stand-up comedian, actress, and former NFL Cheerleader, Anjelah Johnson. If you haven't seen her in action, you should immediately stop reading this and watch one of her King Burger skits. They are funny!

I incorporated "Rude!", "Sa-cur-ity!", "Don't get crazy!" and a few other Bon Qui Qui catch phrases into my singing telegram, and opened the song by explaining that if she couldn't have Bon Qui Qui at her party, at least she could have the Bon Bon Queen!

Since then, I have crossed paths quite frequently with Bon Qui Qui. At a Grapes & Crepes Party, one of our guests enjoyed a few too many glasses of the "grapes" (you know who you are!) and launched into a complete impersonation of Bon Qui Qui. She had all of us laughing so hard it hurt and many of our guests thought she played the character even better than Anjelah Johnson. Just recently, I learned that people who search for the phrase "Bon Qui Qui" online are sometimes landing on our website. If you are one of those people, I have just one thing to say: "Welcome to South 'n France where we can do it your way, but don’t get crazy!"
