Some Stiff Competition


Given the headlines last week, I was sure someone was going to make some reference to new airport security screening methods with a caption like, oh, I don't know...

Bill and Bob, members of the Blue Bird Nudist Society, certainly had no qualms with the new security measures at Detroit airport.


But no, our contestants went in a different direction and the competition was stiff.  For example, VE's entry was:

It took months for the Darwen brothers to realize their act would be much more successful with the ladies if they used top hats.


lotgk came up with:

First two drop outs of the Tareq and Michaele Salahi gate crashers seminar.


But it was Freak Smack who won the day with:

Just as the Johnson Brothers were about to finish their rendition of the striptease from The Full Monty, the crowd begged, "Please, leave your hats on!"





Congratulations Freak Smack.  You be hangin' with Nonamedufus this week.

As I just admitted on MeMe's blog, my synapses were shooting blanks that day. I didn't even try for either caption contest.

Those suckers better get electrified and moving!

Congrats to FreakSmack.

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.
