Transcript Edit

DISCLAIMER: This is a transcript for a video of Michael performing the poem/book, not a transcript from the actual poem/book itself.

The shop downstairs.

We live in a flat, over the shop. It's an estate agents called "Norman and Butt". My dad told me that Norman is the talkative one. He's full of big ideas. He rushes in and starts gabbling away with what they're going to do. Things like, "We could open a new shop! We could buy new desks! We could be millionaires!" Then Mr. Butt says, "But..." and so nothing happens. "That's them, Norman and Butt." says my dad. "Is that true?" we say. *nods his head* "Sure, it is."

Use in PoopsEdit

  • Michael saying "Butt" is used a lot, but the one from The Outing is used a lot more.
  • Michael imitating his dad nodding his head at the end of the video can be seen it YTPs every once in a while.
