A Winner Who Doesn't Rugby The Wrong Way

Lot's of great captions this week. They all made me laugh.

For example, past winner Renal Failure just missed the net with

This is NOT how we greet the Queen, Richard.

And newcomer TheWordWire hit the post with

Hey, I got your World Cup right here.

Perennial honourable mention lotgk narrowly missed with
Lady Gaga...
Sans makeup

But Quirkyloon lived up to her name, going in a completely different direction, coming out of left field and scoring big with this off-the-wall winning bullet...

Mmmmmm Aaaaaa Zzzzzz Dddddd Aaaaaa
Mazda dance.

Ah we can dance if we want to,
we can leave those cars behind
Cause your cars don't dance
and if they don't dance
Well they're no cars of mine!

Way to go Quirks. You be hangin' with Dufus. And ,thanks to Don, last week's winner over at Beyond Left Field, we now have an inscribed Dufus suitable for mounting, er, ah, hanging, um make that displaying. Congrats my friend - well deserved.

Thank-you so very much!

It made me crack up when I wrote it, but then I thought...nah...too out there.

Apparently, 'out there' was the winning ticket!

Ttttt Hhhhh Aaaa Nnnn Kkkk Sssss

I'm doing the THANK-YOU Dance right now.

I'm like the male version of Katherine Heigle in the movie, 27 dresses.

Congrats Loon. I remember the safety dance, (Yes, I am old)
Don said…
Thanks for the mention and congratulations to Q! Renalfailure's was really good too. It sure is quiet in the blogosphere today...

Wow! Those were all great but leave it to clever Quirky to pull that one off!

Love the new Dufus! Congrats to Quirky on the Safety Dance reprise.

Quirks: Oh, yeah, it was out there.

lotgk: Why the heck did they call it the safety dance?

Don: Thanks for the lettering on the ward. There was no way I could figure out how to do that.

RG: The quality gets better and better every week!

CatLady: She did good!

Why did they call it "The Safety Dance?"

Safety dance
Is it safe to dance
Is it safe to dance

S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y
Safe, dance!

Good question! Other than that, I have no other reasonable explanation except it was the 80's when MTV actually played music video's.

lotgk: Checked out Wikipedia. It's a protest song against bouncers who would force club goers to stop pogo dancing. I learn something new every day.

Sort of like Country Joe McDonald's Woodstock protest song, Next Stop is Vietnam,

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

lotgk: Similar in that they're both protest songs. Disimilar in that Safety Dance isn't a protest song in the traditional sense.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
