Angel Ayes

We had some great captions this week. It was hard to decide on a winner. For example, I loved Me-Me's caption:

Not only is Melvin wresting with his saint and sinner sides, he's also wrestling with keeping his pants up

Another great line came from last week's winner, moooooog, with:

Geppetto couldn't help but feel deeply disappointed at how his little boy ended up turning out.

But I've got to go with the caption from our latest member of the humour blog Witness Protection Program, DK@Knucklehead who came up with...

As the police report would later reflect, Howard's GPS had inadvertently taken him to Charlotte, North Carolina and their "Dale Earnhardt Jr. Day" parade.

DK...need I say it? You be hanging' with the Dufus. Congratulations man.


Meanwhile, here in Dufus land it was a kinda exciting week. Quirkyloon bestowed upon me her rarely awarded Quombie award for my efforts at Zombie poetry last week. Thanks, Quirks but no, you can't eat my blog brain. As anyone who reads this blog knows there's precious little left up there as it is! Check out this and other awards by visiting my dufushardware page.

And still in the "pat my own back" department nonamedufus squeeked into the Top Ten this week over at Blog Storm and Humor-Blogs Dot Com. Not bad, since there's roughly 2,000 blogs registered over there. My sincerest thanks to those who have helped get me there. Please feel free to visit these sites and rate my blog.

And finally, nonamedufus achieved a minor milestone this week when, on Wednesday, for the first time ever, over 200 people visited this blog in a day. I don't know just where that sits compared to other blogs out there. I know there are many blogs who, through active self-promotion, achieve a lot more visitors. But, hey, for my money I'm thrilled and I want to thank everyone for stopping by, reading, laughing and leaving a comment.
Cheers and thanks!

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.
