Well, here are the fish.

The only tale I have is that I took their picture at the supermarket when I was doing the grocery shopping last Friday.

They didn't even smile.

The nerve of some dead things, I tell you.

The ice may have had something to do with their cool response.
Come on. The one on top looks like he's trying to smell. Give him some credit for the attempt ;).
Smile. Not smell...I'm sure he doesn't have to try to smell.
laughing mom said…
They were just chillin'.
nonamedufus said…
Are you saying he smelt? (hahaha)
nonamedufus said…
He does look like he's trying to smile. Maybe he died with a smile on his face?
nonamedufus said…
Yes they were. And they were pretty cool about it. Totally ignored me.

That orange one in the middle is staring at me.
Linda Medrano said…
That is a sad photo. Poor fish! All dead and displayed like that. How would you feel if those fish were your family? Nice dead picture though.
Quirky Loon said…
Uh oh. UH OH.

Yep, I'm going there.

Fish heads, fish heads. Roly poly fish heads. Fish heads, fish heads eat them up YUM!

And you're welcome!

(for the earworm!)
meleahrebeccah said…
Hooray , this is the first REAL fish photo I've seen yet for today's theme!
Cheryl P. said…
Now you've done it...I am totally depressed over the passing of fish that I didn't even know.
nonamedufus said…
He's got his eye on you, Mike.
nonamedufus said…
Do you think those fish have been working out? They have mussels.
nonamedufus said…
I don't know how the hell I missed this in the 80s. I'd never heard it before. But here it is for everyone to share (the ear worm). Thanks Quirks. No problem...

Thank you, Meleah. At least someone appreciates the effort I put into this. I got some pretty odd stares at the grocery store, believe me.
nonamedufus said…
The only good fish is a dead fish! But, hey, I had nothing to do with their demise. Reel-y!
Cheryl said…
They didn't need to smile. The way they've been aligned, they look a column of smiles.
nonamedufus said…
You must be looking at the picture upside down.
Ziva said…
Not a single smile? How terribly rude of them.
Cheryl said…
This is how folks who live in Boston smile?

(Ah shit! I'm tired; I missed the email fun and games last night; and dear gawd, I've run out of excuses.)
nonamedufus said…
What can I say? All I could find was frowning fish.
nonamedufus said…
I always catch up on the e-mails the next morning. That's what happens when you go to bed at 9pm.
Nora Blithe said…
At least they weren't peas!
meleahrebeccah said…
Oh I can imagine the looks you must have gotten!
Cheryl said…
Early to bed/early to rise, that's me too.

As for the Sox, I gave up on 'em when I was 10. I was smarter then.
nonamedufus said…
Thank God for small miracles. Hey, I like fish. And sushi!
You made a fish pie and didn't invite me? I'd have brought some mushy peas.
nonamedufus said…
Blech! Double blech!!
nonamedufus said…
And that was just from the fish!
Mike said…
The one on top's face appears frozen in fear.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I think he saw the size of the fish guy's blade.
00dozo said…
The thing I hate about today's theme is that I so reminds me of the freshwater fish I can't get here - you know, perch, pickerel, trout, even catfish (mudcats), and your photo doesn't help with that (although those red fish look like snappers, which we have in abundance here but I do like those).

You sure know the way to a woman's appetite!

;-)
nonamedufus said…
I kinda miss those singing fish. You know. The ones with scales?
Nicky said…
I can't believe what I'm herring, Dufus! They didn't even smile? They just lay there like that, all in a roe without even so much as a hello? And they usually have such snapper lines!
nonamedufus said…
My cod, Nicky. Have you been practising? Well done! A lesser man would carp at your punning proficiency.
I don't know.. the top red guy looks like he is having a GREAT time impersonating a swimming shark!
nonamedufus said…
He's got the look but he's missing the fin.
MalisaHargrove said…
Smart, smart man! Always take your camera with you to the grocery store, right? Bet you had some people worried that you were doing an undercover investigative report entitled, "Holy Mackerel!" Very nice photo!
nonamedufus said…
Well, my camera's a phone, an iPhone. It goes with me everywhere. I didn't borrow it. It's mahi-mahi phone.
Nicky said…
I learned from the Master, Dufus :-)
nonamedufus said…
Well, your my best pupil at the school of dufus.

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.
