Liquid filled noomies (numies?)

I’m still looking for a way to cool my Mac. If there are liquid filled glass pipes for the consumption of marijuana, why can’t there be liquid filled pedestals for computers?

Liquid filled pipe

By the way: I don’t know the meaning of the word noomies. It’s another favourite English word. I first encountered it in this song by Frank Zappa, Let’s make the water turn black, and I believe it’s something like toys, nic-nacs. Anybody who knows the truth around? It could also mean boogers, I think.

Now believe me when I tell you that my song is really true
I want everyone to listen and believe
It’s about some little people from a long time ago
And all the things the neighbors didn’t know Early in the morning
Daddy Dinky went to work
Selling lamps & chairs to San Ber’dino squares
And I still remember Mama with her apron & her pad
Feeding all the boys at Ed’s Cafe!

Whizzing & pasting & pooting through the day
(Ronnie helping Kenny helping burn his poots away!)
And all the while on a shelf in the shed:
KENNY’S LITTLE CREATURES ON DISPLAY!

Ronnie saves his numies on a window in his room
(A marvel to be seen: dysentery green)
While Kenny & his buddies had a game out in the back:
LET’S MAKE THE WATER TURN BLACK

We see them after school in a world of their own
(To some it might seem creepy what they do…)
The neighbors on the right sat & watched them every night
(I bet you’d do the same if they was you)

Whizzing & pasting & pooting through the day
(Ronnie helping Kenny helping burn his poots away!)
And all the while on a shelf in the shed:
KENNY’S LITTLE CREATURES ON DISPLAY!

Ronnie’s in the Army now & Kenny’s taking pills
Oh! How they yearn to see a bomber burn!
Color flashing, thunder crashing, dynamite machine!
(Wait till the fire turns green…
wait till the fire turns green)
WAIT TILL THE FIRE TURNS GREEN

Does everyone agree with these lyrics? I thought mama was waiting with her apron and her PAN, that Ronny helped Kenny burn his BOOTS away, and I would never have spelled noomies NUMIES. Did the South Park makers think of this song when they created Kenny?

  1. Boy! Never heard of the word…

  2. According to Frank Zappa, “numies” does indeed mean “boogers” in this song; they apparently plastered the window with them until you couldn’t see through it. The word is also indeed “poots”, as in farts.

  3. hey dan, thanks for helping solve the riddle – plastering the window with boogers is certainly something that makes sense within the narrative of this song.

    I kinda don’t want my breakfast anymore now, though.

    🙂
