If You're Sick Of Straight Lines Try Angles

When someone says triangle, what's the first thing that comes to mind?  Is it this?


Or this...

Or how about this, maybe...



Or did you think of a love triangle?



I bet you wouldn't have thought of this...

Or this...


Now, I would have thought of this...


And here in Canada I might have thought of the logo for the Canadian Television Network...


And of course I would have thought of the unsung, lowly orchestra instrument...


And, of course, my favourite triangle solo...





Pop on over to Theme Thursday and see what other bloggers thought about "triangle".

With the strange layout of Rochester's roadways, I find myself going around in triangles instead of circles when lost.

Boom-Boom: Be careful of those sharpe left turns.

Heh heh - Ed Grimley! Loved his hair. Second City was a riot. Does CTV still use that logo?
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Martin Short invented the Grimley character while at Second City, but the video is from Saturday Night Live. CTV still has the same logo.

Triangles are interesting shapes. In my town there's a Triangle Grocery, Triangle Photos, Triangle Iron and Triangle Boots.
To this day I cannot see how these places came up with that name. There is nothing triangular about any of them, but like me, they like the lowly little triangle I suppose.

Don: Did you know I lost my parrot last week? Yeah. I've been thinking about my polygon ever since.

Triangles are just circles with stop points.

Triangles are for the slow moving set, whereas circles are for the fast movers.

I am definitely a triangle.

Quirks: Are you trying to run circles around my triangle?

Hey, Dufus, you did a great job with the triangle theme. Especially with the title. Try Angles. Hahaha.

I didn't have time to do the theme Thursday this week. I've been on the phone with the IRS. :0

Leeuna: I'm glad you appreciated the title. IRS? Isn't that next week's theme?

Wicked TT! The video almost killed me... :D

Interesting photos. Some I would not have thought of. Nicely done!
Ziva said…
Great, now I want chocolate. And oddly enough, a triangle to play. Funny stuff.
Deb said…
Ed Grimley is classic! That hair! Those pants! Plus, he's so musically talented!

I think of those stupid triangles we used in 6th grade math class.
Chris said…
That Pat Sajak seems like a nice guy, I must say.

Personally, my favorite Ed Grimley sketch is the one where Howard Cosell plays his uncle. Hilarious.
nonamedufus said…
RA: Oh Martin Short's Ed Grimley is always good for a laugh.
nonamedufus said…
AngelMay: Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for visiting. Don't be a stranger

Ziva: Toblerone has got to be the best chocolate bar ever. And it fit today's theme. Beauty!
nonamedufus said…
Deb: You played triangles in math class? I loved the "find x, here it is".
nonamedufus said…
Chris: I think Grimley was Short's funniest character. Can't recall the Cosell spot. I'll have to go looking for it.
Baino said…
Haha fun post, love the triangle train makes sense to make triangular tunnels actually. And the vid . . sily fun. Love Martin Short.

Baino: I'm glad you enjoyed "try angles".

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 apparentl

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
