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.

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

Apparently, 'out there' was the winning ticket!

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)

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 - 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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
