Pause Ponder and My Little Pony


What do you get when you cross a race horse with an ostrich? Probably something that looks like that thing in the picture.

You guys had your own ideas. Let' take a look at some of them...



The long shot, Aftershock, got boxed in and Alvarez had to pull her up shorter than he expected tp avoid a collision. Ticket holders were ecstatic when the filly came from behind to win by hald a length.



The real American Quarter Horse



Sarah Jessic Parker heads out for her morning run.


But the quip that made me bite my lip won the day...



Professor Floxington comes in 16254th at the 1st and last annual all-LSD Olympics.


Way to go Mike. Far out, dude. You be hangin' with the dufus this weekend. Peace, man. Groovy. Why don't you come over and I'll put on some Vanilla Fudge and we can bliss for awhile.



Thanks to all who participated this week. We'll see y'all again Wednesday.

Thanks for the shout. Took me a minute (okay, it took me 5 minutes) to figure out Mike's caption. Now I can't stop giggling.

I know. But then Princess Anne is not the most attractive of the Royals, is she?
Nonamedufus said…
Well that's how it starts. Then you get the munches.

Yay you!

Here's the thing. I kept reading it as LDS and that didn't make any sense. Once I read it correctly, I was so hung up on the whole Mormon thing I simply couldn't get turned around. Then I got the munchies.

Speaking of LDS, has anyone seen Quirky? She's been MIA for a couple of weeks now.


I always have the munchies.

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.
