Playing Nice

Here’s a bonus button that possibly will amuse only Jim C:

What does the fox say?


Since I’m feeling particularly benevolent, I’m going to add this for Marika, who always mourns the end of Hump Day Happy. Marika, give me a page number between 1 and 611, and another number between 1 and 25, and you know what will happen. If anyone else remembers what the heck I’m talking about, you can play, too–do not give me your birthday again. The books don’t change.

    1. You get “previewing music before buying or downloading.”

      Dash gets “a taproom with bare floors.” (Dash apparently has cabin fever and is ready to go out for a beer.)

      1. and the fox says … “come on Lady, let that blind little dog off his leash just once ….” True. I heard them. They eye Dash up like a leg of lamb. I don’t know know if they want to eat him, or beat the crap out of him. No Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding in this forest!

  1. Dash IS a dancer at heart and I could see him doing some tap… that and some whirling, and maybe flamenco. I love checking out music … I recently was checking out Roseanne Cash’s new cd … and I am thinking it is a must have! You might like it as well

    1. Well, a taproom is really a place where you buy beer on tap (possibly it’s your heritage that makes you forget that all beer doesn’t come in barrels [Was?*], or in cases to throw in the cooler in the back of the pickup before heading to the river for revelry that includes shooting guns at the empty cans–my people!–and possibly catfish), but if Dash wants a bare floor in his taproom so he can dance, then party on, Dash.

      *That is the German “Was” not the English one.

      1. Roll out the barrel, we’ll have a barrel of fun! Roll out the barrel, we’ve got the blues on the run! Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer! Now’s the time to roll the barrel for the gang’s all here!!!

        I saw through your nefarious scheme. You tried to infect me with one of your hated earworms. First, you have forgotten the polka is the music of my people. Roll Out The Barrel = GOOD TIMES. Secondly, I don’t get earworms the same way you do … it’s never a song I don’t like… I love them all!

    1. Also – The Camel. “The camel has a single hump; The dromedary, two; Or else the other way around. I’m never sure are you?” Ogden Nash.

      Just because. 🙂

      1. There was a Monty Python spoof interviewing TV show hunters using heavy artillery to hunt a mosquito for its wings.

        I pick 24 and 512.

          1. I like how that one popped out after “mosquito zappers” and how to hunt a mosquito with a bazooka, LOL :).

            Curiously, the snow melts away bringing a delusion of Spring, when just about a week ago, the groundhog saw its shadow. I must get my camera ready. Check out the pics near the end of this Dr. Jeff Masters’ WonderBlog entry (about 1/3 down the page before the comments).

  2. That commercial was so much a part of our vaction last summer. Jess, Trey & Tyler were constantly hollering one or more of the lines. it is now a part of our family…

    go ahead, say it….

    WOOP, WOOP!!!

    1. It’s Wednesday again, so seems like a good idea! You get “the marvelous lighting effects created by skies, sun, clouds, and moon.” A good one for someone who appreciates natural beauty.
