Let's get ready to cash in
Buffer Enterprises, Inc. now offers a cash bonus to those who report a corroborated unauthorized use [resulting in an actual recovery] of the "Let's Get Ready to Rumble,"® “Get Ready To Rumble”® or "Ready to Rumble"® servicemarked phrases ,any paraphrasing of these marks (including “Get Ready To Crumble,”® “Are Your Ready To Rumble?”™ “Let’s Get Ready To Gamble”™)
My suggestion: let's get ready to "misuse" the phrases, then give each other up.

  • Hey guys! I've got a great idea. You know Fred, yeah? Lovely guy, but it's always hilarious watching him drop stuff. So why don't we throw things at him, yeah, and then try to distract him when he's about to catch them. Wouldn't that be cool? Yeah? OK, so, on the count of three... let's get Freddy to fumble.
  • I didn't want to bring up Sally, but you forced me. She has trouble keeping her balance, poor thing, but it's so funny when she trips up that I don't blame people for placing objects in her path. We could always make it into a competition: Let's get Sally to Stumble!

  • I dunno about you, but this thread kinda makes me light-headed and exhilarated. So much so, in fact, that it makes me unable to speak properly. Let's get heady, to mumble! I am so, so sorry.
  • Betty the Bee is really really cute. If you ask nicely, she'll fly around in pretty patterns, going from flower to flower. We need more of this in our lives, so let's get Betty to bumble.
  • My gym's exercise equipment is in sad shape. Everything seems to be falling apart. And we need a bigger selection free weights, so, let's get Beverly Hills Health and Fitness (to buy some) dumbells. Ok, I know it's a stretch...
  • We all know us monkeys enjoy a pint or two now and again, yes? And clearly no one's more keen than a monkey when it comes to fun and games. So let's all go for a pumble!

Let's get teddies to tumble!
