Savage Similarities

If you're arriving from Theme Thursday you probably know where this is going. If not play along and see if you can tell what the following 10 pictures have in common.

All these pics have the theme "wild" in common. Let's check:
1. Wild West hero Wild Bill Hickock
2. A great book and even greater movie directed by Sean Penn Into The Wild
3. Nicolas Cage in the David Lynch film Wild At Heart
4. A funny, funny take on weekend warriors the film Wild Hogs
5. "Sticky Fingers" is the Rolling Stones album with the song Wild Horses

6. This little fella's being sent on a wild goose chase
7. ...ahem...I think these two are from Girls Gone Wild
8. Charlie Sheen aka "Wild Thing" in the movie "Major League"

9. In the 60s the Troggs sang about Charlie's doppleganger Wild Thing
10. And if you made it this far pour yourself a shot of Wild Turkey bourbon
Wasn't that wild?!

Check out Theme Thursday for more wild goings-on today.

actually #7 is from the movie 'Wild Things'...i think, but you probably already knew that. Great take on the theme; Wild!
Mad wild skills there with Theme Thursday, Dufus!

Love your sense of humor, and your site. Count me in as a loyal follower!
Donnie said…
Yes, that was wild. I couldn't come up with the answer though. I kept thinking Raising Arizona and somehow that and the two girls making out was confusing me.
Wings1295 said…
Wild things, indeed!
nonamedufus said…
Brian: And the colored girls sing...

Skip: Well, thank you sir. Welcome aboard.

Don: You're not the only one who had trouble get past those two.

Wings: Yep.

Me-Me King said…

Alan Burnett said…

nonamedufus said…
e: HTTTYT (Happy Theme Thursday to you, too)

Megan: No I haven't. I may have seen the TV movie. I'll put it on my "to read" list. Sounds interesting.

Me-Me: It's great to see you back! I missed your visits.

Alan: Thank you sir. HTTTYT

Dang. I would've had it but I thought that first one was Sheriff Strickland from Back the the Future III.

"Eat lead, slackers!"
Baino said…
Oh excellent choices. I really do like Nick Cage but I got so angry at that kid in "Into the Wild" he was so unprepared and stupid. I still feel for his family.
nonamedufus said…
DK: There was a III?

Baino: That was the really tragic part, wasn't it. The poor fella's idealism was only matched by his ineptitude
Ed said…
Excellent choices. I missed the connection with the Sticky Fingers album...forgot that song was on it. I read the original article on Into the Wild in Outside magazine; before he wrote the book. I like the article, book and movie too but I think the kid wasn't too bright. He was lucky on a lot of occasions and a bit too risky; there's really no need to be so extreme unless you're looking to die. Still, I agree, powerful movie.

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.
