A Christmas Song

The topic from the folks at Theme Thursday this week is "snow". Now perhaps the most common take on this theme is Jingle Bells because of the line "Dashing through the snow". Well, we're about as far as you can get from common at nonamedufus. So here's an uncommon take...


Dashing through the states
In a Gulfstream private jet
O'er the bookstores we go
Laughing at the stupid gets
Bucks them Billy-Bobs bring
To buy my silly book
What fun it is to laugh and sing
"Gotchya media's mistook"

The button-down mind of Sarah Palin

Going Rogue, Going Rogue
Going to grab power
Oh, what fun it is to ride
Going Rogue, Going Rogue
They think I'm travelling by bus
Oh, what fun it is to fool
The people of the continental US

It's a bus, plane and simple

A month or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Todd was outta here
And the governership I'd let slide
My book is a best seller
People gush - gosh, darn, heck
McCain can hoot and holler
But I love that slick Glenn Beck

Todd, can you see Russia from here? Bye!

Going Rogue, Going Rogue
Going to grab power
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a Gulfstream at $14k an hour
Going Rogue, Going Rogue
They think I'm travelling by bus
Oh, what fun it is to fool
The people of the continental US, yeah!*

then you finish with:

"..but she's hottttttttt"

(jazz hands)
John J Savo said…
Are Canadians allowed to pick on Sarah?

LOL. Just remember: You're between Alaska and the Lower 48... You're surrounded!
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog: Laughing all the way.
nonamedufus said…
John: Of course. I do it about once a week.
Anonymous said…
Ha! Terrific rendition of the old popular Christmas song!

Loved it!

Where's the moose chili?

word veri: recalfs
Donnie said…
I'd do her even if her book sucked. As long as she did too! I'm with moooooog on this one.
JeffScape said…
I'm in Russia. I'm staring back at her.
Wings1295 said…
Fun piece, but can we retire any and all mention of this chick with the end of 2009?
Me-Me King said…
Dufus, you wrote a clever song
Can American all be wrong?
To buy her book and take a look
Hey, moooooog she's wearing a thong!

Brian Miller said…
tee hee. love it...happy tt!
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Thanks. I had fun with it. I think she left it in Alaska, thank goodness.
nonamedufus said…
Don: I wonder if Tiger Woods beat you to it?
nonamedufus said…
JeffScape: Wave, man.
nonamedufus said…
Wings: I'm with you. Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to happen.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Don't encourage him!
nonamedufus said…
Brian: Thanks, man. Happy TT.
Ronda Laveen said…
Oh, going rogue! I thought it was getting rouge.
Chris Wolf said…
Dang-didn't think this angle at all! Bravo!
nonamedufus said…
Ronda: Yeah, I could have gone in that direction too.
nonamedufus said…
Stephanie: Thanks!
nonamedufus said…
Chris: Sometimes the mind works in mysterious ways.
Tom said…
who said she's hot?! Ok, compared to Howard Taft, for sure.
nonamedufus said…
Tom: Not me. I never said she was hot. Afraid I've got some misguided friends.
AngelMay said…
If her book is written anything like she speaks, I'd rather be stranded in a snowstorm - forever.
Dot-Com said…
Ha ha, great new version of an old song! Me likes!
nonamedufus said…
Angel May: You know when asked she said she couldn't comment on the Kyoto Accord as she'd only ever seen the Honda.
nonamedufus said…
Dot-Com: I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Palin's hot? I think Moooog needs a new fantasy. Speaking of poems, my captcha word is "valinga." That sounds dirty, like most of what Palin and Glenn Beck have to say.

Nice poem, NoName.
nonamedufus said…
Mike" Valinga all the way, hey!
TheWordWire said…
The thing I like best about Christmas music is that it's only popular for a month before people get SO SICK of it they can't stand to hear anymore. With luck, any mention of Going Rogue will be crammed in the proverbial attic come January.
nonamedufus said…
WordWire: With any luck, indeed! But I think, unfortunately, this is just a practice run for 2012 and we'll have to put up with her for some time yet - sigh.
Dreamhaven said…
Very original take on snow, lol. Happy TT
nonamedufus said…
Dreamhaven: Thanks a lot. Glad you liked it.

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.
