On The Horns of a Dilemma

We had some great captions this week.  You guys keep nailin' it week in and week out.  And it's hard to pick just one winner, let alone several honourable mentions.  

But let' try.  Skye was on target with...

You are so lucky that my horns didn't spear you when I did this back-flip, but could ya give me a hand here, I'm kinda stuck now!?!


I liked Cat Lady's effort, for obvious reasons.  She taunted us with...

Damn... that bull be hangin' with Dufus!

And Tgoette showed his stuff with this crowd pleaser...

Roberto and his pet bull, Paco, show the crowd the feat that gained him national recognition on David Letterman's "Stupid Pet Tricks".

But it was my dear friend Quirkyloon who came up with the winner this week, and ran (bull) rings around her competitors...


You put your left horn in
You put your left horn out
You put your left horn in
And you shake it all about
You do the toreador pokey
And you get stuck in the ground
That's what its all about!

Arriba arriba!




Okay, there, Quirks, my friend...you be hangin' with the Dufus!!!  Congrats to all and we'll see you Wednesday for our next contest.

I still think the bullfighters look gay. Dammit! There goes my homophobia again. Down boy! Down!

What?

Me?

Moi?

Can I just say (tear drop) that I really needed this right now?

You don't know what the salve you just applied to my inner beast psyche.

I knew there was a reason you were my HOMIE!

Thank-you. *sob*

Don't worry, they're tears of joy.

Tears of joy.

Ha!

Don: Hey, they don't call them gay caballeros for nothing. If nothing else, they are colourful.

mama-face: The gift? Indeed.

Me-Me: ...and rolls.

Quirks: Wow, are you going through a Law and Order withdrawal? Way to go Quirks. I love a happy winner! And you're a happy winner with or without this contest!

gratzi gratzi... wait, I think that means thanks, I meant to say the Italian word for congratulations, but I don't know it :(

Freak Smack: Why it's congratulazioni! You're welcome!
Tgoette said…
Congrats Quirkyloon! A very clever job. Thanks for the mention, Dufus!
nonamedufus said…
Tgoette: Hey, my pleasure. That's what it's all about.
I'm glad I couldn't come up with anything for this one because Quirky's was soooooo good. Very funny thought she had there, and win she did deserve to. Wow. Turned into Yoda have I.

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.
