Sunday Funnies

It was an interesting week, last week, in the funny papers. Political cartoonists were still taking a jab at Obama, his peace prize, and bombing the moon. The Canadian dollar gained ground on it's American counterpart last week achieving almost equal value. And while Canada may not got the Phoenix Coyotes, there was a rumour last week the NHL may well resurrect the Quebec Nordiques. Vive la difference! Oh, and Rush Limbaugh (great football name) was turned down in his efforts to own the St. Louis Rams. Just as well. No one saw him as a minority owner!

Cat Lady: Ha ha, no I haven't seen any yet! Balloon boy in particular is perfect fodder.

Hey, thanks for the shout-out! Oh, those "loonies" weren't about moi?

Harumph.

Fine. Be that way.

Hee hee hee.

My fave cartoon, the new helmut inspired by Rush.

That had me rolling!

Hysterical. I love the Rush cartoons, especially the helmet and goal post. Keep 'em comin'!

Quirks: Maybe not about you, but it's all in the family with your northern cousins.

Me-Me: Oh the Limbaugh cartoons were priceless.
Donnie said…
Limbaugh probably donates more money annually to charities giving to disadvantaged people (of course) than any ten NFL players or owners combined. They don't know the meaning a "a racist". Whine, whine, whine.
Chris said…
My question is, whose idea was it to get Limbaugh involved with football in the first place? Having him do commentary as part of an NFL show was ridiculous, and this is what happens. He's a buffoon, and as such, let him stay with his own show, so his listeners all stay in one place.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Wow, that's a side to the guy I wasn't aware of.
nonamedufus said…
DK: I know. The outcry over this was amazing. And largely due to some of his comments about black players when he was a commentator.

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.
