Not Your Average White Band


Hey I said NOT your Average White Band (hmmm, Ive always liked that album cover). But techincally this post is about AWB but in this case that's Award Winning Bloggers, brought to you today in 3 parts:



Part I
Screw You and The Elephant You Rode In On


Well, everyone managed to take a potshot at POTUS this week. It wasn't exactly what you'd call a flattering picture. In fact, it was downright gay. It only makes sense that some of the comments were too. Let's see who said what...

lotgk came up with

Adam Lambert has nothing on me.



So... this is what Glenn Beck sees every time he looks at the President, eh? No wonder he cries all the time.


and Don posted

Think I'm stuntin' like my daddy now? Ya should get a load of what I'm sitting on!


But our real Washington weiner this week was moooooog with his Obama double-whamma:

..and you people wonder why I vote Republican.

and

Obama later regrets having his inauguration suit designed by the Queer Eye guys.





moooooog, I hope you don't mind hanging with Dufus, yet AGAIN, man. Way to go.



Part II
Mom Likes Me Best


No, we're not running an old Smothers Brothers routine here. Kirsten, over at The Soccer Mom Files is one of my comic caption contest competitors and this week I won her contest.




That melon diet can be tricky but I'm willing to try if I can just get my head around it.




Thanks Kirsten. I have lusted in my heart for this award for some time. I'm happy I can finally add it to my collection.

Part III

Keep It Down On the QT Quirkyloon Or People Will Talk

One of my all-time favourite bloggers, the zombie-loving, rock and roll-singing, rhyming, joking, parodying, satirizing - well you get the picture - all-round funny blogger Quirkyloon has given me another award. Sheesh, this is gettin' to be like a mutual admiration society bloggy-style. Thanks, Quirks that was thoughful. And here's that award...

I what? I have to come up with 5 obsessions? And I have to pass it on to 5 people? Hmmm... why is that song The Way We Were going through my mind? Sing it Barbara...

Meme-ries,

Light the corners of my mind

Misty water-colored meme-ries

Of the way we were

Okay, okay. Thanks Quirks. That was sweet. 5 Obsessions?

1. Music, good old-fashioned rock and roll in particular. And evidence of this obsession can be found at dufusdownbeat my music blog

2. Humour. And some of the wackiest knobs on the web can be found at my 2nd home Humor Bloggers Dot Com

3. I'm kinda addicted to captioning. And the fruits of my loins, er, ah, labours can be found at Dufusawards where I keep my hardware. I shine it every 2 weeks!

4. I love visiting my fellow humour bloggers. I have so many favoutites I can't get to as many as I'd like regularly. Maybe YOU could visit them. I pass on this Fabulous Award to all of them! Go check 'em out on my blog roll at A Bunch of Clowns.

5. Finally I obsess about Quirks. She's one of the blogs I visit every day for my funny fix and I never come away disappointed. She hangs out at Musings Of A Quirkyloon.

Thanks again Quirks. And to show my appreciation I've written you a little poem. It's just a coincidence that you happen to be running a contest for the best Zombie Poem. This has nothing to do with that. Heck, no.

A Zombie Poem

Around each dark street corner she lurks

Sipping Diet Pepper, munching gherks

She's slightly insanze
Looking for brainz
Our rocknroll, zombified Quirks
Man, this post had so many damn links in it I almost feel like Jimmy Dean!

Congrats on your awards but you are really smooching up for that zombie contest. Come on. Admit it. You really want to win. You should be ashamed and disqualify yourself immediately.

Kidding. Kidding!

RG: I come from a long line of ass-kissers. I can give lessons!

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.
