I’ve been told I’m as good as whistling as I am singing. Which I’ve decided to take as a compliment and use it as inspiration for a post about some of the best whistling songs around. Featuring more one hit wonders than you might think (more here), please enjoy my eight favourite whistling songs that just beg you to join in. Do you have a favourite? Any others that you like?
Philip Banks: Did you refer to Hurricane Robert as Bobby? It was serious, darling. It wiped out half of Miami.
Hilary Banks: Well, excuse me for trying to spread a little sunshine.
Released in 1990 and running for six years, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was one of the coolest and funniest shows around, and is still shown all the time. One of the main reasons was just how brilliant Will Smith was. Here are eight of his funniest jokes from the show.
Tyrell: What’s he’s doing here?
Jazz: Na, what’s he still doing here?
Will: You’re not still mad at each other about of the watch thing.
Tyrell: He sold me a fake Rolex!
Jazz: You paid with a fake 20!
Will: Now first of all you should have known it was fake when you saw the warranty was only for two hours, and you should have known that the Jackson on a 20 ain’t Jermaine.
Will: Why don’t you look like one?
Hilary: It’s ridiculous to compare yourself to Will. You’re the captain of the debate team. You’re a straight A student. You’re leader of the glee club. So what if Will’s good at basketball?
Carlton: Thanks Hilary. That means a lot to me.
Hilary: And besides, if that basket were two feet lower you’d be just as good as he is.

I’ve got a few questions for you. When you got this alleged confession from these two young men, did they have a lawyer present? No, because I’m their lawyer. Did you notify their parents? No, because we’re their parents. So, officer, don’t tell us to wait and don’t tell us to sit down. Just open that damn cell and let those two boys out of there or I’m going to tie this place up with so much litigation that your GRANDCHILDREN ARE GONNA NEED LAWYERS!
Uncle Phil (RIP James Avery) in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
