The Murtaugh List

Do you know what a Murtaugh List is? No? The concept, of course, comes from a How I Met Your Mother episode. Educate yourself here.

The List gets its name from veteran detective Roger Murtaugh, Danny Glover’s character from the “Lethal Weapon” movies. Fans of those movies know Detective Murtaugh’s oft-repeated, signature line: “I’m getting too old for this sh*t.” So a Murtaugh List, then, is composed of sh*t you are getting too old for.

Most of the items on my Murtaugh list involve various forms of clubbing, precarious footwear, and the new genre of insidious cartoons that have spawned over the past 5 years (anybody else miss Ducktales?)

The Epic Detective

Now, however, I have a few school related items to add:

  1. Cram for an exam
  2. Stay up all night to do work
  3. Wig out for a test
  4. Be self conscious about wearing my slippers to class

It’s been nice to do school as an adult. I’m not pretending there aren’t moments of stress, but overall I’d have to say school, itself, is not going on the list. You’re never too old to learn new tricks.

  11. Your site is great, but I juice at least once a day as I primarily eat raw foods. I can’t imagine anyone not loving this unit. Ease of use and fit and finish is perfect.

  15. I miss Lethal Weapon

  16. Brilliant. I have a long Murtaugh list which includes..
    1. falling off horses
    2. going to very loud rock concerts
    3. drinking 3 different types of liquor in one night

  17. I love that you’ve added that you’re too old to be selfconscious about wearing slippers to class. Classic. Its cool that as we grow older we worry less about what people think about us.

  18. ha ha ha, love the idea of a Murtaugh list. There are so many, but skatecycles ain’t one of them.

  19. I am 47, and I think I’m getting too old for: Understanding all the subtle functions and buttons into my Facebook account. Understanding what the he** they see in Lady Gaga. Besides, I would never, ever, try to get over those street surfin’ new skateboards, because I can’t figure how they manage to stay there over just two wheels! :-)

    As a fan of both Lethal weapon and How I Met Your Mother, I loved that episode.

  21. Detective Roger Murtaugh is the prototype of American cop about to retire. This is the legendary character played by Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon (in the first, second, third, fourth …).
    For this great man was a fitting tribute in episode 19 of the fourth season of How I Met Your Mother.
