Everybody Ought to Have a Maid
« on: July 01, 2009, 11:09:06 PM »
I just watched A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.  They got to the song "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid" and I thought, gee.. This song would make an AWESOME AMV.  I don't have the vaugest idea about how to actually make an AMV, but I figured I could post this idea out here and see if anyone else wants to take a gander at it.  I didn't find anyone else who had already created one.

You can see the clip from the movie here:

This would also make a cute skit for any maid squad cosplayers.   ;D

That sounds really funny. I need to check that movie out now, because it looks funny, heh.

But yes, if I watched more anime with maids, I would take up your AMV idea. But I don't know of any really.

I was thinking Combat Butler Hayate, Mahoromatic, Victorian Romance Ema, Hand Maid May, or the infamous Hanaukyo Maid Team.  There are plenty more of course.

MAID SHOWS (or characters) I can think of:

Victorian Romance EMMA
Wilhelmina (Shakugan no Shana)
Coyote Ragtime Show, Ep 1
Kamen no Maid Guy
Hanaukyo Maid Tai
UFO Princes Valkurie (One ep with the army of Megane-ko vs the MEGA-NEKO)
Natsu no Arashi
Kaibutsu Oujo - robot maids
Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de
Black Lagoon (one ep in particular)

Hayate no Gokuto and xxxHolic - both shows' main male character sometimes don a frilly white apron to do dishes or cooking

Episode One of "Najica" has maids in it.... and they magically produce atuomatic weapons from under their skirts, Its awesome and mind boggling at the same time.  :o ???

Ikkitousen. Ryomou wears a maid outfit 70% of the time.

And I don't know if one of those Japanese titles  Prinz Eugen said is this but Hand Maid May...

I'm really only replying to the title when I say: Absolutely!

Even without the various naughty implications; having a maid in reality would be nice for several reasons.

  • You'd obviously have the spare cash to afford one.
  • Your house would always be ready for guests.
  • That clutter that others call a 'mess' (because they don't know where anything is; while you at least have an idea.) would actually be filed well.

Unfortunately having a maid also seems like paying someone to re-arrange all your most private physical objects.  Money, hardware, anything you really should also be storing in a safe (hopefully you remembered to buy one before hiring that maid?)...
