Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves


Well tramps anyway, to say the least. At 64, Cher, you can not turn back time. The one-named former singer and gay icon showed up at last weekend's MTV Awards having left half her clothes at home. Her costume was a throwback to a controversial 1989 video.

I'm not so sure Cher's aging gracefully. And there's quite a bit of her exposed there for me to make that assertion.

I'll bet she was cold. I know I got the shivers just looking at her. I wonder if she's bankrupt...spending what she did on all that plastic surgery. I wouldn't get too close to her. She may go at any minute. When that tightly stretched skin starts to give you had better stand back!

You know things just haven't been the same since she split with Sonny. And we know how long ago that was. Cher made a reference to her age at the MTV ceremony, telling the audience she had shoes older than most of the nominees. Well, all I can say is she must have been well-heeled to dress up like that. Although, I'm sure she'd have no problems flagging down a cab.


I don't know about you but I think that outfit is a "little behind" the times.

That woman has so many aftermarket parts I'm not sure you can express her age in one number.

Shieldmaiden96: lol Well put. She's like the bionic woman: "We have the technology"
Is that a light shining out of her botty?

DP: Yes, indeed. Don't go near the light, whatever you do.

Little known fact: Cher was actually alive already in the 18th century, and had begun her amazing transformation from human being to patch quilt. In fact, she was the original inspiration for Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: I never knew that. Makes sense, though. I've noticed she drags her foot sometimes.

LOL @ Ziva!

That explains a lot.

Cher: The Original Cougar.

Oh, this isn't a captioning contest...but (pun intended) it could've been! hee hee

Quirks: I'll bet poor Sonny's rolling over in his grave. By the way, you know what would happen if you were to exhume her former husband and songwriter? Why, he'd say, "Close the lid. I'm decomposing." (Ha, I got you, babe.)

Very scary picture that is for sure. Back in the day though, I did like her singing and acting....
00dozo said…
Well, if Cher starts to sing "Puttin' on the Ritz" with slurred speech and zero tonality, then we know for sure she was the model for Shelley's monster.
nonamedufus said…
Don:Back in the day, but that's a hell of a lot of days ago. I did like her in Moonstruck with Nic Cage. She was a decent actress.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Oh what a great obscure reference. I howled at that part of the movie "...uttin' onna itz..." God rest Peter Boyle's soul.

Actually, I adore Cher and find her amazingly beautiful, funny and talented. I laugh at her "balls" wearing the same costume she wore on that "Turn Back Time" video. And,sorry Duf, but I think she pulls it off.
Donnie said…
Cher was a good actress 'cause I thought she made some otherwise lousy movies interesting. Only a vamp could do that. Well, only a vamp could keep my attention that long. Sheesh! I've got a problem with sex. I think I'm a sex addict. Now can I go out and screw somebody please? After all, I have a disease.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Oh, God, no, I hope she doesn't pull it off! ;)
nonamedufus said…
Don: You should get some ointment for that, Don.

I would think celebrity women would have learned from Phyllis Diller that plastic surgery is not a remedy for the aging process. The number of cosmetic disaster stories is growing by the year. Cher, Shannon Tweed and others make me glad that I'm poor and my wife can't afford trips under the knife.
nonamedufus said…
Tarheel: OMG great example TR. She even used to do jokes about her own plastic surgery. Joan Rivers is another one. When that smile goes, her chin's gonna be draggin' on her navel.

Your comment remind of the line from a guy who said his wife was a plastic surgeon. "You should see how she operates with my credit card!"

You know, from the neck down, she's looking pretty good. God knows I couldn't work that look. And sonny would likely be more surprised that his little girl is a big boy than that his ex-wife has tacky costumes.
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: That's right. Chastity became Chuck or Chaz, or something, didn't she/he. Cher? Just when you thought it was safe to watch music awards shows...
injaynesworld said…
Aw, come on. It's CHER! And she has turned back time -- again and again. Okay, so she hasn't been biodegradable in decades. Still -- She's CHER! And none of the Gagas of the world can hold a candle to the original outrageous designer diva.

Jayne: You know now that you mention it, you're right. At least she didn't wear meat!

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
