"Beam me up"

Today at work, Jess asked me to translate for her the expression "Beam me up".  That was actually the first time I heard that expression so I tried to figure what it could mean.  The translation I came up with was: "Fourre-moi", which means "Fuck me". 

I really don't know if that's what it means. But I told her that I guess the beam is the penis, so "Beam me up" means "Fuck me".  She was shocked and couldn't believe that she had been signing this all morning.  I said "What is it a song?"  And she said yes.

She was still not sure of my translation so I really mimicked the action of being "beamed up" and I did as if I caught a penis behind me and stick it in my butt.  I realized what I was doing a few seconds too late :)  Hahaha!!  I don't know if she realized what I was doing, I was not expecting to do this at all!!  Anyways, it made me laugh a lot.

Later in the day, we're a group of people during the break and Jess says I'm a big pervert who is obsessed with sex!!  She explains that she asked me a translation and that it was sexual, but that she also asked another guy who told her it was a reference to a Star Trek catchphrase and that she preferred that explanation to mine.  I was still not convinced :)

Anyways, it was a lot of fun, but I still don't know if I was right or not.  I found out tonight that it's a Pink song.  But, come on, she also has a song titled "Blow me"....  so I'm sure my explanation is very good!

Thanks to all of those who shared what they liked about men in my previous post, I will come back to it soon with what I like about men.

  1. Too funny!! I must tell you that "Beam me up" is one of the most recognizable phrases in the history of TV programming, from the Star Trek series...

    Maybe you didn't know it because you grew up in the French Canadian culture or maybe the phrase existed before your time...

    1. Well, I'e never watched Star Trek, it is not appealing to me. Anyways, don't you think my explanation is plausible!?!?! If a guy told you to beam him up with naughty eyes... what would you do?? :)

    2. Yes, your explanation is perfect, especially from a horny gay guy!

      I too have no interest in Star Trek. I've never watched an entire TV episode nor have I watched any of the movies....

  2. LMFAO! You're hilarious, JF! Buddy Bear is right though, it's a Star Trek phrase. "Beam me up, Scotty!" My mom loved that show.

    FYI, if a man tells you to beam him up with bedroom eyes he's probably a few slices shy of a whole loaf!

  3. Don't worry, JF. I hear there's Star Trek fanfiction out there that insists your definition is the correct one. :)

  4. I just read through the lyrics. Pink is definitely making reference to the Star Trek catchphrase. Granted, this is Pink, so it wouldn't surprise me if she's intending a double entendre there. (Mel Brooks certainly made one when his characters talked about "beaming" in the movie, "Spaceballs.") I just don't personally see it.

    Also, "Beam me up" often has a certain amount of escapism (take me away from whatever I'm dealing with) implied when quoted. See for example the bumper sticker "Beam me up, Scottie. There's no intelligent life down here."

  5. JF, I have to totally agree with everything Buddy Bear said. But my, you do have the most interesting non worked-related conversations in your office! :)

    1. When I was hired, my boss told me to remember 3 important things.
      1- have fun
      2- have fun
      3- have fun

      I think I succeed pretty well at it :P

  6. Apparently, everyone but Ann Marie thinks I'm a pervert obsessed with sex!!

    I have another take on that!! I think that you guys have been "startrekerized" and see Start trek references when there is cleraly none :P

    HAHA!!

    1. Aw, it's ok, JF. I'm betting you're a perv, you're in good company here! :)

      "Startrekerized" - HAHA! I find Star Wars quotes more pervy. "Use the force, Luke!" "Watch your mouth kid, or you'll find yourself floating home." And my favorite, "Into the garbage chute, flyboy!"

    2. Bahahaha! That's fantastic. I think my favorite was, "You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought."
