I Be Hangin' With Dufus

Get ready folks. Dufus has decided to get into the captioning business. That's right! Beginning tomorrow nonamedufus goes interactive and solicits your input on the first in a series of caption contests. Yep, in the weeks to come I'll be doing more soliciting than Bayou Betty on a New Orleans street corner.

"Why?" you ask. Well, I'm kinda a caption-aholic as you can see from the hardware down my right sidebar. And lately there's a dearth of caption contests out there. Poor old Joe at Crochety Old Man has been laid up in the hospital and re-hab and been unable to award his Zucchini for what is perhaps the best weekly caption contest on the interwebz. And Chica at Lady Sarcasm awarded her last cherished Kick Ass Captioneer award a week or so ago. And, horror of horrors, the caption kings and awarders of the Twinsey Award, Philip and Douglas - the Dyer Boys - have gotten out of the blogging business altogether!

So to avoid a void (sorry to repeat myself) out there I'd like to help fill it (people have said I'm full of it) with the new I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. So starting tomorrow, traditionally known as "Wordless Wednesday" on the humour blog interwebz, I'll be posting a pic and soliciting (at no charge) your captions. So drop by tomorrow and Pause, Ponder and Pun. See y'all then...

The Dyer Boys have retired all ready? Good grief. Obviously the 'King of Kapshunz' title is up for grabs then, go for it Dufus!

Tiggy: We'll give 'er a whirl. There's no replacing the Dyer twins who made captionning a career, but once a week might be fun.

Dufus, my sentiments exactly. I also want to keep on with the captioning thing. I think it is so much fun to read what others come up with. Shall we do ours on the same day?

I already have my caption for your picture for tomorrow.

"This just in. Michael Jackson is still dead!"

I'm psychic btw....

ettarose: Sure, and I'll do a little promotion of yours tomorrow.

lotgk: ...and little boys can go back to just worrying about Catholic priests.

You know Bayou Betty too? I last saw her at Canal St. and Poydras near the Superdome.
Cool, a captioning contest by 'dufus. I'll have a whirl at it. I'm not very good with them, but occasionally I'll nail one. A caption. Not Bayou Betty.

Boy you really get around. How 'bout Swampy Sue and Levee Lulu?

P.S. Looking forward to seeing your comments!

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
