What A Pair!

For some reason, this week's picture attracted a lot of attention. Go figure. Speaking of figures, this one generated some excellent captions and the task of deciding a winner this time around was an extremely difficult one. I could have really used some support this week as my challenge was very difficult, not to put too fine a point on it.

We had a few boobies, er, I mean noobies this week and I thank them for their uplifting comments.

Our runners-up (those that we can repeat) include...

"Funny. I've looked all over and there's no "check" on this engine, anywhere!"

Ozzie Phil of Phils Phun

"There's something wrong with my headlights."

and CatLady Larew

"Dumb blondes... can't live with 'em, can't run 'em over."

But this week we have a first! As a testament to the quality of our captions, and consistent with this week's pic, we have a pair of winners. Here they are:

one of the coolest ladies on the interwebs and fellow caption contest host ettarose

Mary Jane wished Hank would hurry and change the tire, it was getting harder to hold up the bumper.

and, until now, always the bridesmaid never the bride lotgk

Finally the planets aligned correctly as Larry, a red meat eating, baby seal killer, and hater of everything P.E.T.A. exacts revenge on Pamela Anderson.


Way to go guys, you be hangin' with Dufus! Check out all of these guys' sites. They be funny, funny folk. And thanks to everyone for drooping, er, ah, dropping by.

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.
