Say What #2

Back in July I ran the initial post in what I think is going to be a series. Today installment #2. Over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com, where they change the style and format more often than her mean uncle moves the furniture around at Helen Keller's place, there's a forum thread called The Humpty Dumpty Dictionary Challenge where members contribute words they've found from a blog's word verification box along with their own definitions.

Here are some of my recent contributions...

When you throw little Jr into the pool to teach him to swim you better hope he's:



The politically correct term for bus boy!


The perfect word verification for HumorBloggersDotCom


What happens when your clambake lasts too long...


What the parachute instructor says as he pushes you from the plane


Few people know that Sting wrote the first draft of So Lonely in the loo. Uh-huh, yep. And when he changed the lyric to "lonely" he had a hit on his hands...

Well, someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere
But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly

Now you see why this series only runs periodically.

Mine right now is "ranie."

Which is what the illiterate weatherman in Seattle puts on his forecast for today.
Great series! Sting in the loo is now burned into my brain.

Today's word for me is nongle... where people go when Google is down.

Quirks: Yeah, some of them are pretty odd indeed.

moooooog: We've got "ranie" here today, too. (Didn't Grace Kelly marry Prince Ranie?)

CatLady: Haha, good one!
Megan said…

Damn you.
Donnie said…
I've seen those and wanted to ask the burning question, are those legitimate. Not as in kids, but as in actual word verification thingys? They're cool either way...
nonamedufus said…
Megan: I aim to please!

Don: Hey this is a humour blog. Everything's real. Yeah, I right clicked and saved each "captcha" to my pic file. Cool, huh?
Me-Me King said…
Lookie what I got, "argati". I think this is Japanese for "I comment you long time".
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Hey, OKAY!!! (Yesterday's post is having an impact!)
Kelly P said…

Skip Simpson said…

Chris said…
Woke up in my clothes again this morning. Don't know exactly where I am. I should heed my doctor's warning. He does the best with me he can.

Wait. Wrong song.

Damn. That was commicl.
Canadu said…
Great post! My word verification is 'dinsident.' Meaning: A dyslexic conscientious objector, ofcourse.
Unknown said…
I love these word verifications. They are so weird. I always forget to save them. Then when I do I can't figure out a meaning for them. This one is suledr
nonamedufus said…
Donna: Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for stoppin' in.

Skip: lmao

DK: Speaking of commicl, your pretty funny yourself.

Canadu: Haha, good one. See, everyone can play. Thanks for stopping by.

ettarose: You'd think there's be lots of medical staff at the clinic but he was the "suledr" there!
Hey, I was going to write a post about these captcha words! Stop reading my mind while I'm sleeping and stealing my ideas, you ingrant. Ingrant--that's my captcha word for this comment. I think it's a combination of ingrate and rant. Weird, huh? Another nice post, NoName.

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.
