The More Things Change The More They Remain The Same.

Well it's been five weeks since I've seen her; since I felt her soft caresses on my body; felt her warmth next to me; experienced her suppleness and flexibility; let myself simply relax in her firm embrace. But I'm back, baby. And, boy, did I ever miss my couch.

Let me tell you five weeks of intensive golf playing for a neophyte such as me has resulted in pain and fatigue in parts of my body I never knew existed. And that last week with my brothers Whitey - Sir Punsalot - and Killer - Sir Drinksalot - really put me over the top. We played 18 holes a day followed by 18 bottles a day. At that pace I'm kinda happy it was just a week. Not only is my body bent out of shape but my liver's crying "mercy".

But it's nice to get back to reality (he tries to convince himself). This morning I powered up the MacBook to see what was happening in the world, and I must say I wasn't disappointed.

First I see where a 33 year old woman in Buenos Aires took a 23 storey dive off a hotel balcony and landed on a cab...and lived. That's gotta be a first. Usually you can never find a cab when you need one.

Then I read an article about WalMart coming out with a cosmetic line for 8 year olds - make-up and anti-aging goodies such as liptstick, eyeliner, cleansers, exfoliates and the like. Just what the world needs: tween tramps.

And finally I came across a story about a 65 year-old woman in South Carolina who hung her nephew's dog with an extension cord and then set it on fire. Why? Because she said it was a devil dog after it chewed on her bible. Boy, if that's what she did to a dog, I'd sure hate to be the Jehovah's Witness rep in her neighbourhood.

Funny, eh? I leave the country for 5 weeks and when I get back what's changed? Not much. I've still got plenty of material it seems to keep this blog a growing concern.

I'll be around to visit you guys soon.

dufus!?! I tagged you, "Sir Punsalot" awhile back - although Whitey is very good at it, too! (No offense, Whitey.)

Welcome home!

00dozo: When my brothers and I get together it's always a real punfest, which tends to get helped along by the number of beers we imbibe. This time around Whitey outdid us all.
Nicky said…
Yup, it's almost like you were never gone at all, isn't it?

Glad you're back :-)
Linda Medrano said…
I've missed you Dufus! Where did you find those articles??? If not for you, I would not have known about any of these important things! Thank God you're back!

Got to say, I wish you had video of you getting out-punned. That must have been quite the pun-off.
"First I see where a 33 year old woman in Buenos Aires took a 23 storey dive off a hotel balcony and landed on a cab...and lived. That's gotta be a first. Usually you can never find a cab when you need one."

I know it's early, but that's the best joke I've heard this year. I'm guessing it'll be in the top 10 11 months from now, too. Welcome back, I'm sorry to say, NoName.
nonamedufus said…
Nicky: I know. Thank God there are lots of stupid people in the world.
nonamedufus said…
Linda:They were all on yesterday's Drudge Report website. So I certainly didn't have to go far to find them. And I love sharing these stories. I think they need a wider audience. Kind of makes the rest of us feel a litle better, don't you think?
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: It's a family thing. Imagine me times 3. And then, of course, there's a lot of pun up-man-ship that goes on, too.
nonamedufus said…
MikeWJ:Well I like to see the practical aspects of some of these more bizarre incidents, as you know. And, I'm here all week...try the ribs. Barump-bump.
Chris said…
I think the tween tramps market has officially been labeled "twamps".

You heard it here first.
nonamedufus said…
Chris: Gypsies, Twamps and Thieves. Love it.
Donnie said…
Glad you're back. Now you've got some stories to share with us. If not, then let me know. I'll share some with you.

Don: With minus 10C temperatures and having caught a damn cold, I'd say I was happy to be back but...
Jen said…
First of all an 8 year old is not a tween, they are children. Tweens are 10-12 year olds and usually have an attitude.

Also I was at Mooooog's place just before stopping here and so I read

"woman in South Carolina who hung her nephew's dog...."

as

"woman in South Carolina who humped her nephew's dog"

Either way it's wrong.

Jen: On the make-up, I'll bet the little girl pageant moms are really happy. On the dog, well, I think I have to agree with you.
Coming back from Florida was such a disappointment for me... nobody broke into my house and stole all my crap while I was away. Now I still have to deal with it. Damn. Hope your transition is painless.
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: Yeah coming back was a big disappointment for me, too. Someone stole my warm weather!
you can never find a cab when you need one...bahahah

warm weather is here its 40deg celxius ...you can have it back
nonamedufus said…
IWBY: I love the warm weather. But you can keep the floods. I hope you've been keeping high and dry.
lol. thanks yep dry here,i'm inland,not near a big river. thank gooness,it's a nightmare up in queensland,they have a cyclone to contend with this week...
cardiogirl said…
Oy this is a sad day, hearing that Walmart is now offering makeup for EIGHT year olds. Ugh.
nonamedufus said…
IWBY: The news stories were amazing. So much destruction. You're lucky to be away from it.
nonamedufus said…
cardiogirl: Yeah, that's discrimination. What about all those 4 and 6 year olds?
Unknown said…
What? You left the country to play golf? Who does that?
nonamedufus said…
Margaret: Oh, lots. It's a sizeable "club".

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
