The 308, 592, 275th Most Interesting Man In The World


Have you seen my hero on TV? He usually shows up in commercials during sporting events. There's something Hemingway-esque about him. Guys around the world look up to him and want to be just like him. You know who I'm talking about? The most interesting man in the world...that's who:


Now that's one helluva guy. I want to be just like him. He's admired world-wide. Looked up to. He has rugged good looks. And he gets all the chicks.

Now I've been working on displacing this guy as the most interesting man in the world. I've been at this for a while. Working really hard. Here's how I've managed to become the 308, 592, 275th most interesting man in the world:

cue voice-over:

He's never one to brag about the close calls he's had.
He let's the skid marks on his shorts do the talking.



He's not a couch potato...he's an intellectual expert in television programming.



He always wears two pairs of pants when he golfs because he often gets a hole in one.



He drinks his beer out of the bottle because glasses are for little boys, babies and nerds.




He doesn't take pictures of his junk and post it on the internet.
Why would he when a statue of him is on display in Florence, Italy.


He's the 308, 592, 275th most interesting man in the world.

I always drink beer, and when I do it's never *spits* Dos Equis.

It's Thursday my friends.

Damn I came so far so fast and I've already stalled.
nonamedufus said…
We may have to have an "Interesting Man Off" to determine a winner. Things don't look good for me. There are days I can't even keep myself awake.
Linda Medrano said…
Dufus, you are more interesting that that Mexican beer guy. Far more interesting!
nonamedufus said…
Aw, thanks, Linda. It was the skid marks on the shorts, wasn't it?
Linda Medrano said…
Actually, no, it wasn't.
Linda Medrano said…
Dang! I thought you said "fast" rather than "far" and I thought,"Oh dear! That's not good!"
nonamedufus said…
I wouldn't know.
redheadranting said…
Dufus, sometimes I forget how funny you are. Thanks for reminding me with this most excellent post.

Tide works wonders on skid marks.
nonamedufus said…
But then I wouldn't be nearly as interesting.

You forget how funny I am?
00dozo said…
You just had to play the skid marks card. Ew!

But I do like the, "... intellectual expert in television programming."

Heh, heh.

Cheers!
redheadranting said…
I know how punny you are.

I know that doesn't sound right, I just haven't been in the mood for funny lately, and I haven't been visiting any blogs so ... did I back pedal enough?
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I'm highly intellectual.
nonamedufus said…
That answer works just fine. I don't think you're giving me the gears. (back pedal...gears) Lucky for me you're getting out more.

Beer campaigns often make the best commercials. Too bad Dos Equis is a lousy beer.
nonamedufus said…
Lousy beer? Can't be. Why would the most interesting man in the world drink it?

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
Oh yours is SO MUCH BETTER!!!
nonamedufus said…
Thanks. I'm trying for the "everyman" most interesting man.
Shawn said…
You're right. I stand corrected. But is it okay if I don't drink it ever again?

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
