Pause Ponder and Pun



I don't want to raise any red flags, here, but that animal's in trouble.  And that's no bull, folks.

Okay, we got the right day this week.  Wednesday, right?  That's a good sign.  The adjustment in my medication must be working.

Leave a caption in the comments and mosey on back here Saturday to see who won The Hangin' With Dufus Award.  Se y'all then.

Ole!

Oh, hey, speaking of awards I won the Golden Phallus Award last week.  I know.  Like I need another Golden Phallus...award!  Anyway I won Mad Mad Margo's caption contest last Saturday.  You can click through to my Awards Page and click the link there for the details.

Don't forget to try out Margo's caption contest this week.  You can try Kirsten's contest too, although she hasn't given me an award lately.

The peace loving Ferdinand was award 100 bonus points, for style, becoming the first bull to score a victory without having to kill the torreador.

In retrospect, Spain's Olympic Gymnastics team probably shouldn't have had an open tryout.

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!

Ay yi yi!

The enlightened bull demonstrates his favorite yoga position, the horn stand.

I'll sit this one out, but I have to say that I never realized just how gay those clothes and cape look on that dude. Kind of like a Guatemalan version of Batman.

Bull: "You just want me to come running up to gore that cape, then pull it away so you can see me fall flat on my back and kill myself."

Matador: "This time you can trust me, I won't pull it away, I give you my word."

Bull: "His word. A man's only as good as his word. I guess if you have a man's word, you can't go wrong. Maybe this is the year I finally gore that cape."
[Bull runs to gore cape, but Matador pulls it away]

Bull: "Aauugh!"

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

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.
